Hi, welcome to The 'Shroom, Mario Kart: Wheel Tips Corner! Ninelevendo (talk) here, with this new, returning section of The 'Shroom. In this section, we'll consider tips and tricks for all kinds of Mario Kart games, from wheels to cups. Since the recent release of Mario Kart 8, I bet you're all trying to read this as quickly as possible so you can get back to the new game you just bought. Don't read too quickly, you might miss that winning tip you've needed. So, in this article, we'll consider a couple of kart combinations, some courses and a few characters. If you've got any suggestions or a tip you really want, don't hesitate to ask me. Now, on to the tips!
That's right, 'Shroom readers, I'll be giving ya'll a monthly kart to try out. The Wild Wing is a default kart in Mario Kart Wii, and the speedsters earliest choice for middleweights. It suits a more "Speed and Drift" racer, and isn't exactly for inexperienced racers, due to its horrible handling, acceleration and off-road. More experienced players, on the other hand, will love it. All a Pro needs is an unstoppable mass dominating first place with unmatched speed.
So, obviously this isn't a kart for people who rely on automatic drifting. It's great drift stops the need for worrying on the handling, but without the mini-turbo, this kart is useless for an automatic drifter. However, for a seasoned pro who loves drifting, this kart is heaven. Once they speed up, they'll become an unstoppable force that can drift around any corner and taking the lead with the boost they receive. If you're not that type of person, stick with another kart.
This month, I'll be giving tips on a course that, naturally, you can race on Mario Kart 8 and in the Wild Wing, Grumble Volcano! Since you can't perform a certain glitch in Mario Kart 8, you might want to get the best time you can for this course. If you're looking for a good kart combo in time trials, I'd recommend a bike with an inside drift, like the Sport Bike or Jet Bike, that offers a boost to whatever stat you think you'll need.
No, it isn't Luigi. This Month, it's Toad! This fungi is the ultimate speedster in any games before Double Dash, and can beat anyone in a blue blur. Hmmm... Maybe that should be his nickname... Putting aside mocking a blue animal, Toad is a favourite for most retro gamers. He was the ultimate guy to choose when trying to beat your big bro, and then mocking his "refined skills" he always bragged on about. Since becoming a lightweight with slow speed in the other Mario Kart games, he's no longer the speedsters choice, but the best in the business for acceleration. I'm sure you'll love this guy.
And wraps up my first 'Shroom article! See you next month, and have fun racing on the ceiling! Don't forget to tell me if you have any requests. Remember, avoid those Spiny Shells!
