When you first started to play MKW, what drift did you use? I started out with Automatic (and frankly I was pretty good at Automatic during the beginning) because I thought Manual was impossible to learn at first, but I eventually learned it and found it much easier than Automatic, which I suck at now lol.

Automatic because it looks easier, until I started playing online, and I noticed that all the good people are using the funky and Daisy combo. Then, I decided to learn manual by creating a new license and unlocking all the expert staff ghosts with manual; I also got my three star rank with Manual.

I remember starting off on Luigi Circuit with Automatic. When I hit the boost panels a quarter to the end I kept flying off. And my dad said that I 'wasn't supposed to hit those' (he's nothing near a gamer!) Pffff.. parents!


Fun fact, I proved him wrong a month later ;)

Automatic because Manual is difficult to use cuz I keep drifting onto grass, sand, etc. I used to hate a vehicle with Manual called is... Mach Bike LOL! But I feel good with Mach Bike Automatic in 2009.

I've used to play online races with Mach Bike Automatic and I reached over 7000vr until I saw people who use Funky keeps beat me because they use Manual, then I went offline and started to learn how to use Manual in TTs. :p

With automatic, I consider as the beginner mode, I started playing with the wii wheel with automatic for at least two years until I learned to use the manual mode! :)

I forgot to mention that I gradually got into manual by using outward drifting bikes, and then I got into inside drifting bikes. :p

If I remember correctly, I used manual from the start. I think I just never actually drifted so it didn't make a difference to me anyway. I used Yoshi and the classic dragster and relied on handling to get me through every turn. At least until I discovered the standard bike was way faster in time trials and learned about competitive play.

I used to be quite good at Automatic and suck at Manual. And now it's truly the other way around. Whenever I use Automatic in fun rooms, I question how I ever used it in the first place.

Automatic, as it's a very common option for beginners. That was a very long time ago! :p

Automatic, but only for a few months. Not sure if any of you noticed from a long time ago, but @DaMan never switched. He did learn manual, sort of, but is still better with automatic.
