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.

How to Do a Slipstream

Doing a Slipstream is simple. Simply drive behind your opponent's kart and stay close behind them for a few seconds to gain a speed boost.

Tips for Slipstreams

  • Only do slipstream on opponents without an item on their back to avoid crashing.
  • If your kart has Slipstream Plus. it will greatly increase the speed boost duration and score you can get.
