Castle Stars:
Star 14:
This one (in the Red "!" switch course) is a toughy. My final technique was to fly off to the right after dropping in and try to line up along the string of coins that form a spiral. If you can stay just inside the coins, close enough to catch them you have a good line on the red coins.
Star 15:
I finally managed to beat the 21 second barrier needed for castle star #15. After countless attempts getting down to 21.1 seconds at best, I tried one last time, and made it in 20.8 seconds. I think the trick here is to do the three tight bottom turns without hitting the walls on either side of the course.
Bowser #3:
Well, I finally did it. Jumped into the 3rd Bowser course, found the hidden 8th red coin hiding under the steps up to Bowser's Pipe and got that castle star. Then, feeling up to the challenge, I dropped in to visit Bowser. I grabbed hi tail right away, spun him and threw him, getting about half way to the edge. Grabbed him again and KABOOM! Got him a third time, KABOOM. Quickly ran back to the center of the plaform to avoid standing on the bits that drop away and after a bit of running around, I got his tail and KABOOM! I think if you get his red coins, it is easier to beat him. The ending animation sequence is quite cool, guess I'll have to go get that piece of cake!
