CalebKum • Jan 13, 2019 Let's share our tips on how to SMASH everyone in racing!!! Comments [user=29065359]BillsFan[/user] Drift only when needed to and get used to one body and wheel type. For Double Dash, for instance, I uses Double koopa troopa or koopa troopa diddy kong with the train. [user=27431628]CalebKum[/user] Drift. In the recent MarioKart games, you get boosts when drifting for a certain amount of time, which can go faster than a mushroom!!!! [user=29208399]Zach_C[/user] If the track you’re on has red and white lines at some of the corners, there’s a good chance it isn’t decoration! Go to the side of the track with those lines and follow them; it is usually a shorter option than the middle or opposite side of the track. Just be carful not to go over them and onto the dirt, sand or grass on the other side; it will slow you down substantially and may lower your chances of winning the race, which could impact your final position at the end of the Grand Prix/VS Race or your time in a Time Trial... [user=27431628]CalebKum[/user] Drag items behind you eg. shell, banana, bob-omb. This can block the feared red shell, but if drifting, it can hit you from the side. Throw a bob-omb early to block the red shell, otherwise it will explode, spinning you out! [user=29208399]Zach_C[/user] Place fake item blocks INSIDE (or just behind) real item blocks. This may not always work, since you don't always have one, you'll have to slow down and/or the version of Mario Kart you're playing may not have the fake item block, but if you can overcome these issues, I would recommend this strategy. [user=27431628]CalebKum[/user] [user=Zach_C]Zach_C[/user] Yes!! Then you wouldn't have to trick everyone, you'd just surprise them.
