I think snaking is a perfectly legitimate way of winning. As long as you're able to do something in the game without any cheats, then I believe the method is fair game for anyone.

This video shows you how to snake. Basically it takes advantage of the mini boosts...the handling in some of the karts is so good that you can boost your way from side to side through the straightaways and not just on the turns. You can't do this with every kart...you need either the egg kart or the dry bomber....and maybe a couple more will work.

Oh... Okay I think I know what you're talking about! No I do not think that is fair at all. That is just plain cheap!

Looks fair to me. People who can't snake are just mad.

Why can't Metroid crawl?

I don't see why you shouldn't do this. It's not cheating or bug using or something... seems fair to me

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

I think it's cheap, but no, its not cheating. Warping is cheating.

I hate it personally. Im good at snaking but it just ruins the whole point of the game in my opinion. I wish Nintendo would patch it then maybe I would start playing it again online.

I would do it for time trials, but playing against human opponents it's not fair. Some people don't want to risk wrist injuries just so they can compete online.

Isn't the point of any game to win?
