      i personally feel like i just got lucky with my 3 wins. it was while it was a 100cc set of races, with default item slots. it just happened to be good timing. ive noticed my drivers pull in the opposite direction sometimes while playing. and sometimea my drift doesnt always drift the way i would like. but keep on trying Lakitu. you got it man!!!!!!
