KartRider: Drift – Driver Assistance Features Guide

Driver Assistance Features

You can set the categories that are helpful while playing in [Menu] -> [Settings] -> [Gameplay].

You can select and use Driving Assistance Features as needed to get used to racing.

Before the start of each race, the Control Settings in use are displayed to the left of the character (Automatic / Original).

Driving Settings

  • Driving Settings will control certain parts of your kart for you. This allows Racers to focus on only one or more aspects of controlling their kart.
  • Auto-Steering: Your kart will stay in the center of the track when you don’t press any controls. This cannot be used in Time Attack.
  • Auto-Accelerate: Your kart will accelerate on its own. (Used by default on mobile.)
  • Off: You control manually with both Auto-Steering and Auto-Accelerate turned off.

Control Settings

  • Select controls helpful in racing.
  • You can select the Control Settings when starting the tutorial and make changes later in Settings.


  • All Control Settings values are reset when switching from Original to Automatic.

The following outlines each driving assistance setting in detail.

These settings can only be changed in the Original Control Setting and not Automatic (where everything is turned on and max drift correction is used).

Drift Settings
