In luigi's mansion, you can find a hidden ramp to activate your glider. It is hidden in the cemetery on your left(in mirror mode right) after you exit mansion and also before the bogs(muddy parts) that is why there is a patch of coins floating above the fence on your right(in mirror mode left).
The three fastest racers are bowser , metal mario , and honey queen . Choose one of them. Select the Zucchini or B-dasher car. Also choose the gold or slick tires. Then choose the Swooper or the beast type of glider. Those together equal the fastest speed possible. For bowser and honey queen, the weight is a lot, and handling low. For metal mario, handling really high, weight really low.
You can throw items forward by going up on the circle pad and throw items behind you by pressing down and using item. Really simple once you do it a lot.
If you have a bullet bill and you KNOW there is a shortcut ahead, go to the shortcut then use the bullet bill. The bullet bill takes the longest way but at a fast speed. It skips ALL shortcuts. You can use the bullet bill to knock out others.
When your racing, go close behind another racer to gain boost and then you go faster.
If you have trouble with races, go to time trial. Select to face with nintendo studios or retro studios. Follow them to learn the ways of the track and shortcuts. If you see other choices from spotpass or streetpass that are faster, follow them for a faster time. Then you can become good at your races. (online vs can also help for learning)
In cheep cheep lagoon course, there is a hidden path right before your first dive. And I mean literally on your right. U dive on the right(caution!there will be a bottomless pit on your right soon!).another path is the one that has the glider ramp. Though I'm not going into detail because it's obvious. The paths I'm going to talk about are the ones that are on either side of it. Most likely you will accidentally land in these(because most of you might just want the glider ramp but people knock you into these paths). These paths both have item boxes though.

(This works best for Ace players who are very good at the game)
Drop back to a low position and pick-up an item
Recommend: Bullet Bill, Star, Lightning, Blue Shell
Hold your item till a critical moment (Even if you are 1st)
If your opponents have lightning or a blue shell is approaching you, use this item to save yourself from the one attack.
Further tips on this: Draw the blue shell to others as well to maximize damage.
Lightning should be used to get rid of those items before they are used.
On daisy hills, there is a ramp not easily seen because of the flowers around it. U can easily find it in 150cc because other players use it. That's how I found it anyways.
Whenever you have boosts or stars you can drive through grass, dirt, or others without you slowing down. In time trial, do this once a lap if you can make it. You should know if you are underwater, diving in other terrains does not slow you down.
When you have a blue shell, you should wait for people to move close together. Since the shell hits whoever is in your way, you can hit lots of opponents at once and you could be put in the lead
In dk jungle course there is a not-so-hidden glider ramp.it is at the part with mud and frogs. U will see a wooden path leading to the ramp on your left. If you do it correctly and timely you can get the speed boosts up ahead and still not land until about before the last boost.
Go to Wuhu Loop and at the 3rd section, You will need a mushroom to do the shortcut, now use the mushroom don't tounch the circle pad and time your drift and if you time it right, you will teleport near the finish line!
For this glider ramp in dino dino jungle, it is, like dk jungle, not-so-hidden. In the cave before the first glider ramp, is another one that leads to it. The path leading to this ramp is covered with mud, so I recommend a mushroom boost. If you descend carefully you can get the other glider ramp without landing.
Hold A around when the 2 starts fading at the start when there's a bump/ramp hit jump also get a coin and you well get a really really small boost The three fastest racers are bowser , metal mario, and honey queen . Choose one of them. Select the Zucchini car. Also choose the gold or slick tires. Then choose the Swooper type of glider. Those together equal the fastest speed possible. For bowser and honey queen, the weight is a lot, and handling low. For metal mario, handling really high, weight really low. (special thanks to gogojjtech for telling me that last one)
To unlock your mii win all cups in a class. Then you should see mii as a player.
When you get a Lightning Bolt, Blue Shell, Star Power or a Bullet Bill, hold onto the item for a while then use it when you think would cause a lot of damage.
(Note: Blue shell should not be used in first unless you are on teams as it will hit you instead)
When You Go To The Ledge In The Tunnel In Time Trials Use A Mushroom And When The Person Riding a cloud It brings you to the lake ahead of you.
Press a right after 2 leaves the screen and if lakitu is picking you up press a right when your wheels touch the ground and press r right when you go to jump a edge
One of my personal favourites ^_^
When you hold a strong item, (Bullet Bill, Lightning, Blue Shell, Gold Mushroom, Star Power, Triple Mushroom) hold the item as long as you can.
Next step varies on item held
Attack Item - Bullet Bill, Lightning, Star Power, Blue Shell
This will be used to disrupt your competition just before the finish line.
Run down your opponents for a sudden change of place at the finish.
Defensive Item - Golden Mushroom, Triple Mushroom, Bullet Bill, Star Power
This will be used to short-cut for a fast finish.
Use the item/s and make great use of the short-cuts and catch your opponents off guard.
If you fall into lava or go off the edge of the course into out-of bounds, hit accelerate (A) just as lakitu drops you back on the course and you will get a small boost start to get you back into the game.
(Practice your timing for this one)
It works well for low acceleration vehicles.
To win this you can choose either your mii of mario and any thing eles but the for wheels you must choose those relly tiny wheels
My recommendation is a small character with roller wheels and the royal ribbon.
This gives you excellent acceleration and handling which makes taking tight turns to save time and recovering from attacks much easier.
