All The Easy Shortcuts You Can Take In Mario Kart 8's 200CC Mode

Among the many, many things that Mario Kart 8's new super-ultra-mega-fast 200CC mode changes are the shortcuts every course has. Now they're a lot easier to speed through -- as long as you don't run into a wall first.

YouTuber Axsel made a handy video (via Reddit) of all the shortcuts in Mario Kart 8 that no longer require Mushroom-fuelled speed boosts to capitalise on. Take a look if you're suddenly having a much harder time making it anywhere near first place. I know I am. But that probably has more to do with actually staying on Rainbow Road for more than five seconds at a time than finding the best shortcut.

    There were several there that have always been possible without a mushroom. Also, several where the slowdown is significant enough to completely negate any advantage and more. The only ones that really surprised me were the big one in the new F-Zero course and the one crossing the waterfall in Yoshi Circuit. Even with that speed, I didn't expect that the jump was possible after the off-road slowdown.

      Not only that bit in a race, there will be items, and if you get hit by anything while on an off-road section you're screwed.
