Select a driver that favors the current course. If the current rule is on default item slots, you will have the chance to get item frenzy.

Using a driver and a glider with skills that can easily crush your opponents would be of great help. See the tables below for recommended list drivers and gliders.

Note: Drivers with Triple Mushrooms skill is also a recommendation. Triple Mushrooms may not be an opponent-crashing item but it will help you steal the lead in the race.

Turn OFF Auto-item

Turn OFF Auto-item in the settings. Your items are your best weapon against your opponents. You can throw these items forward and backward to hit other racers. Do this to slow them down and steal the lead. But, do not forget to always save at least one item to block your opponent's attack.

Drifts and Slipstreams

Performing Mini-Turbos and Slipstreams is very important when playing on multiplayer races.


Drift and stay on the edges as much as possible! Especially when there are curved areas in the current course. Mini-Turbos will give you a short boost and help you catch up with your opponents.


Performing slipstreams is also important. Do slipstreams when you are behind other racers to get ahead of them!

Use Shortcuts

Three courses will be included from a cup in the current tour and changes every 15 minutes. If you are familiar with the current course and know its shortcuts, use them to take advantage of your opponents.
