Once in a race, there is no way to pause other than switching away from the app. The settings button does not pause the race even if it is against CPU.
When doing ranking races, your tier affects the minimum score you're expected to reach. The higher you progress, the harder it will become to maintain your tier, thus forcing you to either boost your characters (through free or paid means) or simply lose your tier.
The game has a combo feature that encourages you to keep performing actions and plays a sound that raises in pitch depending on your combo. If your character also happens to have 3 item slots, it's possible to get a "frenzy", which essentially looks like hitting a jackpot on a slot machine, temporarily granting you star power, infinite items and massively boosting your combo.
You can either indirectly compete against other players in ranked cups to aim for the highest score possible, or you can directly compete against them in multiplayer modes.
The game has a monthly Gold Pass subscription, which gives many rewards.
The game features weekly ranked leaderboards, in which getting a high score just before it ends leaves others with almost no way to catch up with you.
The game formerly had a gacha system as its main method of monetization. However, it is still possible to spend money for variable rewards, such as if it were offered as part of a Premium Challenges pack.
Items never directly get less powerful, but if the tracks each driver/kart/glider are best at stop appearing, then the item becomes much less useful (or possibly even useless).
Some drivers, karts, and gliders are only available during certain tours, and may not show up for a long time afterwards.
Coins can be gifted to people on your friends list, and most will expect you to return the favor.
