Using trams as a speed boost in Toad Harbor

The trams in Toad Harbor usually knock you out when you drive into them by accident, but if you are flying after jumping from a ramp or booster, you can actually use the roofs of the trams to your advantage. While in the air, land on a tram's roof to bounce off it undamaged. For an extra boost, perform a flip.
