Snaking, officially called "Mini-Turbo", is where racers waggle back and forth during a drift for a significant boost in speed. Its usage has players split firmly into two camps, some saying it's a glitch that ruins the game, others claiming it's a skillful technique to be mastered.
"The second big difference is the removal of snaking. Ever since the N64, practically every Mario Kart game has included the ability to get a speed boost by waggling the controls left and right as you powerslide. This has finally been scrapped. Now your speed boost is determined by how long you can hold the slide".
Note that ONM has a reputation for being wrong, so this news isn't exactly set in concrete.
