This guide... well, it's OK. The biggest flaws here are that the stats are wrong for some characters and kart parts, and there are pretty much no tips for the new Battle Mode. For my first complaint, a good example would be the stats for the Gold Standard kart and the Master Cycle. Those should share the same stats, although the guide gives them different stats. Also, Dry Bowser and Wario should share the same stats, but they don't. These are just examples, god knows how many errors there are regarding stats.
As for Battle Mode, they don't provide many tips. Usually, all the info you get is a short description on how the mode plays. There's also an error for Renegade Roundup's description: it claims that the team with the most freed renegades wins, although this is not the case. The team who wins the most games does, either by evading the cops or eating all the renegades.
Most of the screenshots are from the original Mario Kart 8 and not Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (you can tell because some images don't have double item boxes where they should be. Look at GCN Sherbet Land, for example. There's a screenshot with an ice cave with an icy pillar, a double box is missing on the right), but this is just a nitpick and has no effect at all.
