Drifting, also known as Power Sliding, is an ability featured in the Mario Kart series. This feature allows players to gain a short burst of speed known as a Mini-Turbo and to turn through sharp turns easier. It is possible to receive a Mini-Turbo in every Mario Kart game after Super Mario Kart, although the technique varies from game to game. In most Mario Kart games, it is required to hop in order to start drifting, this is not the case in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.
