How the fuck do you take the last turn on Rainbow Road 8 without a Sports Bike? I try to drift as close as I can to the edge, but then the cart can't keep up with the harshness of the turn and the drift causes me to slide off/almost off the track. I can't end the drift early because the boost will guaranteed throw me off the track.

Mini-turbo stats affect blue and red drift boosts. More = longer boosts, by a VERY substantial amount.

>>252684593
Hello to every gottagofast build.

Acceleration rounds down, so your 1.75 acceleration is really only 1 acceleration. Swap the Cyber-Slicks for something else (probably Standard) to get a round number. It'll help with your water speed as well.

That, or use the kart combo with DK/Waluigi/Rosalina. You'd be better off with Slims than Slicks though, for better water speed and traction.

Royal Raceway improves race lines, and positioning for a good jump on and off the grass ramp and red boosts on the final stretch.

Wario Stadium teaches drift control, drift hops, low jumps and timing for consistent lines through the fire rings and fire bars.
Both rely heavily on soft and spin drifts to get good times and take corners sharply.

Would someone care to explain how spin drifts work? I'm good with soft drifting now and would like to learn something new.

Also, RR8 is great for getting soft drifting down correctly.

Oh hey an active MK8 thread.

A question, I know acceleration is tiered, like 4.25, is just 4, but is it the same for all the stats?

Is 4.75 speed really just 4?
>>
>>252691185
No
>>
>>252691094
To spin drift you have to input the direction as soon as you land from a hop, Not that street fighter stuff in mkwii.

Winning without having 3 in acceleration seems exceedingly hard
>>
>>252692405
Pretty much. The only difference is that there's time limits and more customization options.
>>
>>252692405
It's improved from MK7, you can actually join groups that are open but playing by spectating. And I can only speak for myself but there's way less comm errors.
>>
>>252692431
Well, it depends. If you can pull ahead and not be hit by a red shell, it doesn't matter what your acceleration is. Other than that, it feels like 3 acceleration is the minimum for doing anything. Otherwise, you're just stuck crawling and asking for another green shell to hit you again.
>>
Well that was some fun 1v1 matches, Metal Mario. Good shots with the fireballs, although you want to hug your corners tighter to avoid green shells to the side.
>>
>>252692698
You could join and spectate in MK7 as well, but that would only happen less often.
>>
>>252692881

Do the gliders affect your performance that much or are their differences mostly just style?
>>
How about this. I'm gonna list three courses, and you tell me the part of the course that feels the most dangerous, in both its layout and the actions of your opponents. Here are the courses...

Shy Guy Falls
Yoshi Valley
Water Park
>>
>>252698191
Look at the stats when you change between them, they affect weight and accel very slightly but worth paying attention to.
>>

>up the waterfall
>bigass egg ring
>before the gliding section
>>
God I wish this game had 3D support. It would look incredible
>>
>>252698191
Gliders are heavier and boost speed in the air. Parachutes give you more acceleration and give you a miniturbo boost.
>>
>>252698191
Some give you a small bonus to air speed/weight, and some give you a small bonus to acceleration/air handling. If you need +0.25 acceleration bonus to hit your next tier, they're great. Otherwise, mostly cosmetic.

All gliders have one of those two stats, so the Gold Glider is just a cosmetic difference from the Super Glider, for instance.

Up the waterfall for bananas, the jump after going down the waterfall for red shells.

The small bridge after the egg section. Also, getting bumped around by heavies in general during the more narrow bridges.

Probably the turn before the ramp, where the spinning cups are. Massive fireball spam and best place to toss bombs/shells.

Still better than 7 and wii, now is very common that once in a while most racers will receive mushrooms at the same time, also if super horn appears is more likely that at least other two people got it too and that someone will get blueshell, also is very likely if you get a star that someone will get lightning.

You know this game is very fucked when Redshells and greenshells are more lethal than a blueshell. Seriously, no one loses 1st because of the blueshell anymore. Triple reds in seconds are more likely to fuck you up.

I've never heard this, but it would explain so much in this game.

And that still makes it easier than even 7, seriosly red shells are almost useless if you can barely see the player targeted because they most likely will hit a hazard or a wall on the track. There is a reason to why is easy to get 3 star on every cup and you know why.

I've ran through the stats on all the parts. Here's what parts have identical stats.

Standard Kart = Cat Cruiser, Prancer, Sneaker, The Duke, Teddy Buggy
Pipe Frame = Standard Bike, Flame Rider, Varmint, Wild Wiggler
Mach 8 = Circuit Special, Sports Coupe, Gold Standard
Steel Driver = Tri-Speeder, Badwagon, Standard ATV
Biddybuggy = Landship, Mr. Scooty
Comet (inside drift) = Sport Bike, Jet Bike, Yoshi Bike

Standard Tires = Off-Road, Blue Standard, Retro Off-Road
Monster Tires = Hot Monster
Roller Tires = Button, Azure Roller
Slim Tires = Crimson Slim
Slick Tires = Cyber Slick
Metal Tires = Gold Tires
Sponge Tires = Wood, Cushion

Super Glider = Wario Wing, Waddle Wing, Plane Glider, Gold Glider
Cloud Glider = Peach Parasol, Parachute, Parafoil, Flower Glider, Bowser Kite, MKTV Parafoil

I could be wrong about something, of course. I've grabbed these stats off of websites, after all, rather than obtaining them from the game code or something similar. However, everything has checked out with every reference I've made, and you get the expected numbers in the game as well.

They might be useful for an inside drift bike, assuming Slicks or Slims aren't good enough. They unfortunately have the benefit of high traction, which means very little in the game.

I can't see using Monster tires with a Mach 8, not when you could use Mach 8/Slims instead.

For Daisy try pipe frame with slick/slim if you want more speed in exchange for one point of acceleration. Luigi looks good. Those are about the same stats I use, but with more speed.

I can appreciate that they tried to fix this by giving everyone excessive mushrooms and stars to move the pack forward rather than holding it back. However, making mushrooms and stars worthless except for the occasional shortcut really messed up the plan.

Well, I jumped offline to see how setting up the tablet next to the TV might work for seeing positions and items without glancing down. It turns out it doesn't. The tablet screen is just too tiny to view at that distance, even if you ignore the glare issues. Plus, the Wii U Pro controller just doesn't feel comfortable in comparison anymore.

I don't think I'll hop online anymore today, though. It was some fun races everyone.
>>
>>252735642
I set mine up on a table to the side of me so I can still see the TV in my peripheral vision. I think it is a bit easier than looking down while playing, but it still isn't great. However, being aware of what items the people around you have is very important. I wish they just gave an option to add a HUD to the TV.

Thanks Australia.
