Mario Kart 8has been out long enough for players to put every possible vehicle combination through the wringer. So now that we’ve all taken a few laps around Rainbow Road, I have to ask: what do you think the best build is?
There’s no one answer to this question, of course, any more than there’s one kind of Mario Kart 8 player. So to get things going, I set up a little template we can all follow based off the green dinosaur you see above.
Vehicle: Yoshi Bike
Wheels: Off-Road (this changes from track to track)
Glider: Cloud Glider
What it’s good for: Getting around tight corners, power-sliding, being ridiculously cute.
What it’s not good for: Bumping up against bigger characters, navigating off-road terrain, reaching a high maximum speed.
When I use it: Double Yoshi is usually my go-to combo when playing local co-op with friends. It’s too light-weight to compete in online vs races, which is my other favourite way to play the game right now, so I’ve found myself using it as a practice bike of sorts.
