Hello fellow duders...just playing some mario kart for the 64 with my lady and I cannot for the life of me remember how to toes items behind your cart...do any of you guys remember how to toss items behind you?
Hold the item button so that the shell is held behind you. When ready to fire, hold down on the stick and release the item button. This fires the shell backwards, it's not dropped on the track like a banana peel (this is how it worked in Super Mario Kart on SNES). This works with red shells too, if memory serves. However it does NOT work with the triple shells, only singles.
