Drifting and Drafting
Drifting is the process of pressing the ZR button on the Gamepad or the B button on the Wii remote or the Z button on the Nunchuck controller. drifting gives you a sharper turn and gives your wheels some sparks. the longer you drift, the more likely you get a red spark. a blue spark gives you a small boost when the drift button is let go and a red spark gives you a longer boost. Drafting is when you follow behind an opponent and then you get a good boost to pass them.
The new items are the boomerang which can be thrown p to 3 times. the Pirranah Plant which chomps opponents and gives you a speed boost. The Super horn, which once used, a sound wave surrounds you and anyone within range spins out.
