How to Drift Into First Place

Drifting in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a feature that can help you win all races. Drift is divided into several levels of acceleration. Luckily, this skill is easy to learn. During the turn, you must hold R, and to charge the Drift, you need to hold R for a longer time. Then release the button to get acceleration. Here are the levels you can charge:

  • Blue
  • Orange
  • Pink

The Pink Drift level first appeared in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This level gives a huge speed boost. Now that you know how to Drift, you need to learn how to use it properly in racing.

Remember, you have to Drift on every turn of the track so you can get a speed boost on straight parts of the track and overtake opponents. Of course, you do not always need to charge the Drift to the Pink level. After all, turns on the tracks can be long and short, and if on a short turn you try to charge the Pink level, then most likely you will fly off the track. Therefore, it is better to get a little acceleration and continue the race.
