We Now Know Which Character You SHOULD Be In Mario Kart
And there's scientific research to back it!!!
Some super, smart scientists have crunched the numbers on Mario Kart characters. Looking at the analytics of the game and comparing weight, speed, acceleration, handling and traction there was ONE TRUE WINNER.
Gotta be Peach then?
NOPE. If you want to win consistently, you're best to go with WARIO!!!!
I can honestly say I don't think I have ever played Mario Kart with Wario. EVER.
Why him? Apparently, it's a combination of speed and handling, along with the acceleration ability.
It is known that the heavier players like Wario or Bowser have a higher top speed than the lighter characters like Toad and Peach - but the speed typically comes at the price of acceleation and handling...Wario is the exception to these rules. He has strong handling and acceleration skills and also has one of the fastest top speeds in the game! (via Fatherly)
