You'll need a mushroom (red or gold). Once the blue shell gets above your head and makes it's turn to come straight down on you, use the mushroom and blast out from underneath it. It's heat seaking-ness stops once it make that 90 turn down toward you. Unfortunately, it seems that once you're in first place, you ONLY get bananas from blocks. SO you need to have a mushroom stored for when you hit first place.
+1 The AI in that game is relentless, too. Mario Kart DS was easy as hell, but the Wii's is out of hand. Almost as bad a Mario Kart 64 (racers magically vanishing from the back of the race, then spawning right behind you.)

I prefer to keep bananas when i am in the lead, you can use them to block incoming red and green shells. the shield of circling shells is the ebst when in the elad tho.

Right but they're useless against the dreaded Blue Shell!

can we all repost MarioKart numbers in this thread? There was another thread where like 3 people did, but none of those 3 people have ever been on and it's so much more playing against people you "know".
Mine is 4339-5467-8314
Yes I'm a nerd and have it stored as a contact in my phone. You never know when you'll meet a fellow Mario karter!
