    Character: Toad
    Body: Growlster
    Wheels: Wooden
    Glider: Swoop

    Pros:
    - Good starting acceleration when hit by item
    - Handling is perfect for generating large drifts
    - Glides further due to light weight

    Cons:
    - Average top speed
    - Light weight makes item hits hurt and bumps off track easy

    My kart:

    Kart Wheels: Gold Wheels
    Glider: Swoop

    Good for Time Trials (if you can handle it good).

    So I've switched it up a bit:
    Body: Egg
    Tires: Slim
    Glider: Paraglider

    **I changed up the Plane for the Egg because I felt like whenever I went off road even for a cm it would take me quadruple that time to get back on the track. With the Egg it allows me a little more Off-Road while maintaining speed.
    Still using slim tires until I unlock better ones :P


    Question for @mariofanatic64: How'd you unlock the gold wheels?
    And this is really for anyone to answer (sorry for being off topic), but I have completed all single player 150CC tracks with a gold trophy, including the mirror tracks. Now I was told that all I needed to do to get a star by my name is to complete all tracks of a certain class (in this case I chose 150CC) with a gold trophy, which I've done. I'm assuming however, that I also need to achieve a 3-Star rating for each track as well? If anyone that's achieved the gold stars could let me know exactly how to get a star, that would be great! Oh and also what's the max amount of stars you can have by your name? The most I've seen on someone in multiplayer is three.

    You unlock the gold tires by winning every cup on every CC. And the max stars you can have by your name is 3 (as far as i know, i only have 2)

    Ah I see, well damn that's a lot of freakin' work! Could you tell me how the tires compare to the slim/wooden tires? These are the ones I'm currently using but if the Gold tires are significantly better I would definitely put the time in.

    From the top of my head, they drastically increase the Speed and Weight of the car. But the Handling, Acceleration, and Off-Road drop considerably. But it's fast, and if you are good at controlling it, you shouldn't have any problems with it.

    Hmm I'll probably try and get em' anyways to try them out! The low handling and off-road I can handle, but accelerations pretty big as I tend to drift a lot. Anyways, thanks @mariofanatic64 for the feedback!
