Today is a sad day. I've only just discovered how to get the perfect boost at the start of a race in Mario Kart. Perhaps I didn't feel the need to urgently research this particular factoid because its ability to help me when actually go-karting is limited. Or so I thought.
The folks over at Rooster Teeth decided to put two facets of Mario Kart reality to the test -- what's the best way to accelerate from the starting line; and the spinning-out qualities of road bananas -- by trying them on real karts.
I won't spoil it for you, sufficed to say I was surprised by the results of the first test. As for the second, well... I now know what an army of bananas is capable of.
Sadly, there's a distinct lack of turtle shells and star power-ups, but these, I imagine, are a little harder to track down than a certain yellow fruit.
