Who's the best character in Mario Kart 8? What's the best kart and tires to use? How on earth does all of this even work?
I'm a new fan of the Mario Kart series. I have always heard how great the games were, just never played any in the past. Some friends of mine were telling me I have to pick up Mario Kart 8 and that I would love it! So I did.
First of all, they were right. I am absolutely loving that game and have been streaming it live on my twitch channel every night since it's come out! I have been playing with the viewers of my stream in online multiplayer and just could not manage to win any races, so I decided to do a little research.
I found a list of all the stats for the characters, karts, tires, and gliders and decided to develop a little Mario Kart 8 stat calculator to determine which combinations were the best. Keep in mind, you can easily get first place with all of these characters and combinations. The stats come out fairly similar across the board, but there are a few choices you can make to gain an advantage.
Mess around with your favorite character a little bit and see if you can improve your racing stats, along with your skills!
