Here is why you should use these combos.

Waluigi’s Wiggler – Best MK8 Deluxe Builds

This is the best combo because of the high Mini-turbo that it offers. Mini-turbo works like a hidden stat, charging it quickly gives you a literal boost. Considering all the stats, this gives you the most balanced setup to use.

It offers high speed for all four track types (Ground, Water, Air, and Anti-Gravity), slightly lower for ground though. But what makes this better is it doesn’t sacrifice its Handling for it. You still have great handling with this car.

Aside from the above two stats, you get high acceleration, low weight, medium traction, and low invincibility.

DK’s Scooty

This is arguably the second-best kart combination that you can use in the game. It comes close to Waluigi’s Wiggler but loses to it in terms of its overall speed. The speed here isn’t bad but it isn’t as high as the first combination offers you.

But to make up for it, this car combination offers you higher acceleration, handling, Mini-turbo, and Invincibility. This kart also has the worst traction out of the three combinations on this list.

Dry Bowser’s Buggy

If you like the above two builds and want the best of both, then this combination is for you. Dry Bowser’s Buggy has the most balanced speed for all four tracks. But has slightly lower handling than both the above builds.

But to make up for the bad handling out of the three. It gives you high acceleration, weight, traction, and mini-turbo. It also offers you the most invincibility out of the three combinations.
