    Someone already did experiments with weight tiers? In MK8 Classic between 3,75 and 4 weight was a big difference like in acceleration. Acceleration tiers were removed, so maybe they removes the weight tiers too.

    I tried saying that before: the video on acceleration tiers doesn't state whether 200cc or 150cc TT were tested. in 200cc, Drive_AccLmtFwd was always a limiting factor, removing the hard tiering altogether. Until we have proper evidence, we shouldn't assume that acceleration tiers were really removed. Drive_SpdKfFwd might still increaase in a tiered fashion, just like it did in MK8 200cc. Same for the Weight tiers.

    My question is are midweights finally viable in 150cc races?

    They are more viable now at least, but the current meta combo uses heavyweight.

    Don't Rollers hurt speed though? Someone recommended me that for my Mario/Tanooki Master Cycle build.

    They do indeed hurt speed, but Mini Turbo Stat is more important than speed in this game. Acceleration and Speed are about as important

    So it's a major gamechanger that literally shakes up the balance and meta from MK8, am I correct? I feel like I can invest Leaf and Roller tires into any build.

    I tend to use Mario, Tanooki Mario, and Bowser. I'm partial to Inward Drift bikes, particularly Master Cycle and Jet Bike (since they're heavier). So I'm still experimenting with what I want.

    If you have any recommendations, please tell me.

    I personally don't know much about bikes sadly, but I imagine roller wheels being the go tos no matter what!

    I need to play more online, but they've felt great so far. The mini-turbo boosts that Mario and Tanooki Mario get are ridiculous.
