What is a Slipstream?

Slipstream Boosts (Mario Kart Tour).jpg

Slipstream is a technique in Mario Kart Tour in which your driver speeds up while driving directly behind another player. Slipstream is a good way to get ahead of an opponent that is just in front of you, as players can take advantage of the boost to pass the player they are tailing.
