We recently helped players choose the perfect character in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Picking the right character is very important in Mario Kart, as your character should go hand in hand with your play style.

This guide will help you get the best kart in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, to go along with your character. Making the right kart is important, as it will help you perform even better. The kart has to be made with your character in mind.

How To Make The Best Kart In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:

To obtain the best racing set up possible, players will have to make the perfect combination of the character, kart, tires and glider. All of these things contribute to how you perform on the race track.

We have a few recommendations for every part of the build, however, at the end of the day, it is up to you. Building your Kart to go alongside your character is completely your choice. Try out a few things and see what goes well for you.


For the character, we recommend a bulkier character from the Heavy Character class. Bowser, Wario, etc work the best as they are notorious on the track, and can take out their opponents with ease. They have low acceleration, however, they make up for it with their high top speed.


Players have a lot of karts to choose from, but the ones that worked the best for us are the Blue Falcon, Pipeframe and Streetle. These Karts allow players to reach high speeds.


In terms of Tires, the slick tires work the best. These are good for every play style and work well in every situation.


Gliders are something that don’t have a huge impact on how your kart performs, so you can choose whichever one you prefer.

With all these things in mind, players can easily make the ideal kart to go along with their characters. With the information above, players can make a kart that can reach good speeds, can’t get knocked around easily, and has great control on the race track. You can experiment with the builds and find something that works better for you.
