Avoiding Red and Blue Shells
If you have a shell of any color or a banana, you can be protected from red shells. Just hold down the item button and the shell or banana will stay behind your cart. Whenever a red shell comes it will hit the banana instead of you. If you are going around a sharp corner, just go really close to it and sometimes the shell will hit the wall. To avoid blue shell just simply drop a bomb right when it is behind you.
