Gamers love Mario Kart for its competitive gameplay and vehicle customization. But what is the fastest vehicle in Mario Kart 8? Here’s a look at the top contenders.
Donkey Kong, B Dasher Kart, Triforce Tires and Super Glider
Donkey Kong can travel at extraordinary speeds thanks to the B Dasher kart, Triforce tires, and Super Glider.
He has the second-fastest speed of all the characters. His traction is also improved by the tires, which is quite useful for heavier characters.
Additionally, the default glider is recommended so that the speed of the kart won’t be restricted by the penalties associated with other gliders. DK reaches a total speed of 5.25 with this build.
Roy, Standard ATV Kart, Gold Tires, and Plane Glider
Like Donkey Kong, Roy has the second-highest base speed possible, and with the right equipment, he can go quickly.
He gains significantly more speed with the Standard ATV kart and the Gold tires, but at the expense of acceleration and control. Finally, the Plane Glider boosts his traction only a little bit at the expense of a modest increase in weight.
This is one of the greatest Mario Kart 8 setups since it is generally a quick build, hitting 5.5 top speed.
Baby Daisy, Biddybuggy, Roller, Cloud Glider
Although this might seem like a very unusual combination when aiming for speed, it works effectively. Speed isn’t the only factor that determines how quickly a kart can cross the finish line.
This Baby Daisy design considers acceleration, which may be a weakness of some kart setups. This would be a terrible setup for typical play at 0.75 peak speed.
However, when speed may quickly become a disadvantage and the need to swiftly recover from mistakes is higher, it can be useful with 5.5 acceleration , and on 150cc or 200cc.
Wario, Circuit Special Kart, Metal Tires, and Wario Wing
With a maximum character speed of 4.75, Wario is a popular choice for kart layouts that emphasize speed.
At the expense of acceleration, handling, and traction, the addition of the Circuit Special kart and the Metal tires results in an additional 1.0 speed.
One of the quickest builds in the game, he may achieve 5.75 top speed by using his recognizable Wario Wing to complete the build. As drivers will have to deal with some subpar kart handling, incredible speed obviously comes with significant risk.
Bowser, P-Wing Kart, Kart Gold Tires, and Hylian Kite
The game’s heaviest character, Bowser, is also one of the swiftest. The P-Wing kart with the Kart Gold tires enabled him to reach the game’s maximum speed of 5.75 from his basic base speed of 4.75.
The Hylian Kite guarantees that Bowser maintains his glider’s speed without adding any extra weight that may make this design difficult to handle.
