Spiny blue shell (no wings)
Also coins are returning and operate by once 50, 100 or 500 are collected a new kart part is unlocked and the driver loses coins if they are hit by an item also collecting 10 coins in one race allows the kart to reach top speed. Karts are customisable with different frames and wheels. There are gliding sections and underwater sections for use with the glider and propeller respectively. Drift is the same as in MKWii (So NO SNAKING).And tricks are returning and are activated by using the drift button on the ramp. Gyro controls are being included and the player can see in 1st person view i.e in the kart.
Keep things nice and discuss.
