Do you throw items back at others or do you play it safe and hold it back and occasionally throw them forward?

I usually hold and throw in either direction to have good defence and a good chance to get snipes and other stuff.

I manage items depending on the situation. If I'm clearly winning I just throw everything behind, but if I'm near a pack or in a tricky spot I hold on to my items for defense.

Depends on the track honestly, and a combination of how i'm feeling at the time and what place i'm in as well! When i'm in first I mostly just hold on to items (although sometimes I backspam literally everything if I feel like it loool), and when i'm in mid places I tend to do the same out of fear of getting a TC :shameful:

When someone is front of me, I try to hit him with an item. But I do have keep in mind that somebody behind me might have an item to hit me as well so you need to be aware of your surroundings.

I use items depending on the situation, I really do not have a set way of using them, its different depending on the track/players.

For securing a position or lead for a short term, I go all out with the backspamming and trapping of tight corners. When i'm gaining positions, I snipe everyone indiscriminately, there is no way that it is supposed to be a 'friendly' contest when the goal is to win. It's still friendly, but holding back for weaker players is not what defines being "friendly" in this case.
