You can protect yourself from getting hit by shells, or you can get back at other racers with this trick. Make sure you have a single or multiple bananas, or a single shell. Hold Z instead of simply pressing the button. The power-up will now be in back of your racer. If another racer shoots a shell at you, the banana/shell will block it. You can also hold the power-up until a racer gets in back of your vehicle.
