Don't sweat it, Sandy - as long as you're prepared to spend time learning the tracks, recognise that some of the GRcadian players have kart strategies hard-wired into their bodies and that the game will shaft you on occasion, you'll soon enjoy playing .
Check out the opening post for details on how to join the sessions and take part in the Discord chat .

That's probably going to give you some time to unlock some nice karts to use next week, though!
Are the start off ones pretty gooseberry fool then?
I'd say they're good, but not particularly flashy or anything. You have all characters unlocked from the get-go (except for Gold Mario) and the karts don't have as big of an effect on your handling as the characters. The way they drift does differ more, though.
There is a massive amount of stuff to unlock, though. I still end up unlocking new karts each week I play with GRcade.
