Mario performing a U-turn in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The U-turn (also written as U-Turn)[1] is a technique in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which allows the driver to quickly turn around. It can only be used in the games' Battle Mode. To perform a U-turn, the player must release the acceleration button in the middle of a drift. The vehicle will turn up to 180 degrees with a turning radius much tighter than normal steering allows, with dust being kicked up behind it.
