    ''Snake Hopping'' During mini-turbo Increasing speed.

    Was watching a few WR ghosts (RR64 WR....woah) and I noticed quite a few of them hopping rapidly during a mini-turbo. It looked liked it was increasing their speed, but I wasn't sure until I tested it myself.

    Sure enough, hopping left and right quickly after a mini-tubo boosts it's speed by a pretty big margin. Anyone else tried this out yet?

    If it's already a well known trick, then I apologize for bringing up old news.

    Feels like it honestly. Many times I go pass other players on S curves by "snake hopping" like it's giving you extra momentum.

    I've noticed that it only(?) works on flat terrain or when you are going uphill. The times I've tried going downhill, I've actually ended up slowing down.

    Like I said, I've noticed a jump in speed while on flat or inclined sections but a decrease in speed when trying to snake hop down a slope.

    I noticed this same thing for the Tick Tock Clock WR. It confused me at first but after applying it to my lines I was able to keep within 2 seconds of the record (I hope to improve more).

    That's quite interesting. Hopefully it's not too annoying to race like that.

    So the first exploit rears it's ugly head! Well it's not as bad as MK7's Monster tires, and not even close to MKWii inward drift bikes or MKDS snaking, so it wont ruin the online or anything!
