I recall the only time I braked, was when I still was on automatic drift. Now, I don't break anymore, which tends to be annoying when you bump into a wall, but I still think I shoukd stick with it.

i believe you still need to break a little for certain courses even in 150cc like Neo Bowser City or Rainbow Road Wii U.

so meh.

The inside drifting bikes do have a disadvantage at the very start of Wii U Rainbow Road, since if you don't position your drift just right with the first set of turns, the inside drifting bike would end up falling off the track; they don't turn sharply enough while drifting, even when you go all out on the handling stats.

As for 3DS Neo Bowser City, in the 150cc, it's completely possible to get past the s-shaped turn without using the brakes; my own primary combo can handle that part with hardly any trouble.  However, in the 200cc, you're almost prone to fall off that portion of the track if the super mini-turbo gets executed.

Also, 150cc is for dweebs. Why play on it anymore when 200cc exists?

Maybe because some people can't handle 200cc's high speed.
Like BLOF said, anything less than 200cc is for dweebs.
The tracks weren't designed for 200cc, which is why many of them become a great deal more annoying on that speed.
And this is why I have a special combination for 200cc that focuses on reduced speed and emphasizing control.
May Walkazo always be remembered on MarioWiki for years to come.

This took me a year to unlock it.

And in MK8, the unlocking requirement now took me almost less than half a year because of multiplayer.

I've gotten all the gold parts in MK8Deluxe but not in the others, and tbh I like that they made it easier because grinding isn't really fun.

*sigh* I've been doing 150cc because I'm virtually guaranteed to get 1st and likely to get 3 stars. I can occasionally get 1st in 200cc, but a lot of the time I come in second or third. I think it's time to up my game.

That sounds rather insulting when you consider that 150cc is supposed to be like the game's expert difficulty.

Doubt. The expert difficulty mode is hidden in VS mode settings. Select Team Game and report back to me.

I win more consistent races in VS 200cc against hard COM than 200cc Grand Prix.

I've already played team game a bunch of times before, it really isn't too hard. The only problem was that the items didn't care if they were thrown by your teammates, but they fixed that in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

OK then, burn out at the beginning of the race in Deluxe. Try and catch up.

For anyone doubting me and claiming it's placebo....well there's a separate GP course table and VS course table...and the VS course table has much higher speed values.

I don't think having a hard time winning after intentionally disadvantaging yourself at the start is a good case for difficulty.

I know that. And you'll notice once you get hit with one or two items. It even got to the point where I was stuck at 6th and had to fight my way to 1st...which usually never happens in GP.

Oh, and I always start with a full Rocket Boost.

That was a utterly atrocious unlock requirement, and I don't think the developers bothered play-testing it at all.

I'm not saying that you SHOULD do it, but it's an experiment I done to show that there is in fact different COM behaviour for Team Races.

Rule N#1 in Mario Kart: NEVER play team races with CPUs.
