To be honest, I never thought too much about it until it turned up into discussion. Otherwise, I would have noted it.

Keep dreaming, it's not happening. ZarroTsu did a good job s far... for someone with very little knowledge of code, but he's certainly not going to whip up bots anytime soon. The only reason Riders' bots worked in 1.09 is because they were so simple (turn, boost, jump), and drifting wasn't even in 1.09. 2.0 Aded drifting for Riders, and for Kart, there's the matter of things like items. I doubt ZarroTsu is up to the task.

(Also, what's a doUnut?)
Lakitu's movements are a simple capechase, but there are probably good technical reasons why he won't follow you. Mainly, he has to drop from above the screen, something I doubt is easily done with SOCs. Knowing CZ64, he probably hardcoded it. It might be fixable, but I'm not too sure. This also explains why Lakitu spins with you: he always is in front of you, and spinning does indeed flip your direction. It's not so much Lakitu's problem as it is the banana, but I doubt that'll be fixed.

Ghosts are direct replications of what the players do, so:

1: They would need to be made for every single character, as they are all different, barring Knux sharing stats with Eggman... for some reason.
2: Items would mess them up HARD.

Though, having some Staff Ghosts wouldn't be out of the question... if Time Attack is re-added and fixed so Checkpoints work.
