Are some racers faster than others? [duplicate]

I’m remembering that in my childhood, my brother and I were certain that you had different attributes depending on the driver you chose. For instance, Toad and Yoshi were a tiny bit faster than the others.

Is this true, or were my brother and I just having illusions about differences between the drivers?

Answer

Yes, generally speaking, Mario Kart drivers are broken into 3 main types:

  • Lightweight Peach, Yoshi and Toad – They have the fastest acceleration but the lowest top speed. Toad is slightly lighter than Yoshi or Peach, but the difference is so small it’s not really noticeable.
  • Middleweight Mario, Luigi – The only differences between the middleweights and the heavyweights are that they’re lighter and also have quicker acceleration when going on dirt, mud etc.
  • Heavyweight D.K., Wario & Bowser – They have the slowest acceleration and the highest speed. In Battlemode you can make an opponent lose a balloon by ramming them at high speed.
