use diddy or donkey kong when you have the big banana and you are about to go to a jump use it and people will slip
once when you start the race on bowser's castle go northwest NOTE make shere you have some speed. now you fell down into the water now you should be at the part when you see bowser shoting fireballs at you this is the best way to win
On Rainbow Road there are starmen laying on the road if you run into one
You will be invisincible for a short period of time
At Daisy's Cruiser, at the pool, go right around the edge instead of left. If you don't fall in, it will gain you ground.

There are shortcuts in some levels, i'm going to tell you some of the ones I know ok there are : the one in the city I don't know where exactley but it shows a building with a crack in it drive you're car in there then keep going
second: the one on yoshi's island on the first turn, turn right before the cave there's a little bit of field go up there and there you are ( I forgot to mention you can only got up here if you have a boost so make sure you have a boost) third and final: the one with the dinosaurs where the water is spurting up inside the cave take a right and theres a bridge.. Take the bridge only if you have a boost or else you'll fall and lose time...
When playing 'balloon battle' on 'Mario Kart Double Dash', choose the field 'Pipe Plaza'. Plant a banana in front of one of the pipes. When you run over the banana into the pipe, you will not lose a balloon but you will become invulnerable for a couple of seconds. This also works with other items, but you must make it through the pipe before the balloon comes off your cart.
To get the Toad team you have to beat the Star cup at 100cc.
In Bowsers castle when you come out and go down the steps, you would normally take the turbo jump, right? Wrong. Right before the turn, there is an opening in the track. Take it. You don't need a turbo but you should have one. Be careful, you don't want to get hit by a metal Bowser fireball. This shortcut should get you ahead at least 3 positions. Hope I helped!!
To get a boost when you are at the starting line watch the lights go off. Right before the last green light is lit you can press A. You can also press A with all the starting lights so that you will get a small boost and get out of the gate quicker!

Happy gaming, ronloving
To make the special cup easier, what you can do is do it against someone else. This will make it so there's less thwomps and when you get to the grating, there will be no fireballs!
If you or the player who's playing the guy who works the weapons presses Y or X without holding a weapon, the car you're in will honk it's horn and the character in the back will do a taunt.
All characters have different taunts so try them out!
Beat the game and you will get the gold kart.

This hint is for the beginners.If you pair up different pair you will get more specials.
When you get to the part where bowser shoots fireballs at you keep driving and do not turn left
Instead there will be a opening, when you get close to it powerslide across the gap, you will land on the other side and skip a u-turn
Either drive into them just after you've used a Mushroom or use a Star and hit them whilst the effect is still on you.
When you go round a corner, hold L + R. Then while holding L + R, press the control stick in the opposite direction of the way you are turning. Then repeat until you have blue sparks. Then, at the end of the turn, let go of L + R. If done correctly, you should get a Mini-Boost.
At the start of the race when the thing holds the traffic lights, wait until the lights go green. Then press A as soon as the lights turn bright green. If done correctly, you should get a boost.
(Must be on 2p mode, Co-op). Do the same as you do for the boost (see above), but p1 + p2 do it at the same time. If done correctly, you should get a Turbo-Boost.
