Simple Drift vs Manual Drift

Difference in Controls

Simple Drift = Easy

Simple Drift

As the word itself implies, the Simple control method is the way to go if you're new to Mario Kart, allowing you to smoothly steer your kart, making it far easier to navigate narrow trails. You'll also be shown an arrow in front of your kart as a guide.

Manual Drift = Combos & Points

Manual Drift allows you to hold a drift for an extended period of time, allowing you to charge up and do Ultra Mini-Turbos, boosting speed and netting you more points after a long drift.

Which Is Better?

Considering both methods' strengths, Simple Drift is the way to go if you want more control and are still not used to the long drifts in Mario Kart Tour. Manual Drift can be rewarding but very punishing if used incorrectly as it can cause your kart to spin uncontrollably.

How To Drift?

Hold Left Or Right

Drifting is done by tapping and holding the left or right side of the screen during a turn. This helps in helping you nevigate tight corners or long curves, slowing you down but in turn, gives you more control.

Mini Turbos

As you drift, sparks will start to fly out of your tires, a sign that you are currently doing a Mini-Turbo. Mini-Turbo grants a momentary boost after a drift. The longer you drift, the better the boost.

Pink (third level) boost is available using simple as well. However it takes a while to charge.

Manual is way more fun but completely useless since you lose the ability to stear normally completely. If the track isn't completely straight you need to stear normally what you just can't to now.... Very bad made imo
