You have to press forward when the countdown says "SET" and hold it down until "GO!". If you press it too early, you'll get a penalty. If you press it exactly on "set" or just after, you'll get a boost!

I had that same problem, but not only in the network, but with the AI, but later I already knew how to do it

This should probably be added in the FAQ.

but before when you pressed it in Go! youd get a boost, why was this changed though?

It changed because of networking. Boost status needs to be known before "Go!" to avoid stutter.

Oh wow, that's an interesting bit of trivia.

FWIW I had no trouble figuring that out. I saw that other karts were getting ahead at the start, so it was only natural to figure that I should try pressing the accelerate button sooner.

I had to ask other players. What's your racing name, btw? I'm woosh.

diligentcircle, I believe... though I just realized I forgot to write down my login info before wiping my PC and installing a new distro. Whoops! Hopefully it's what I think it is.
