I was just running for practice and in 8-3 I accidentally hit a hammer bro and got a mini-mushroom. I could swear that I swam up faster. I am just saying this if this ever helps!

If you think you've found something that can be easily tested like this, actually take the time and do the testing before making a spammy forum post about a potential new strat that could easily be nothing.

to my beliefs it is about 1 second faster with the mini mushroom

Is it faster than the shell though

Looking at the in-game timer, the difference between the two seems hardly noticeable. Even if mini Mario does indeed swim much faster vertically, you’ll unfortunately lose time over shell after the checkpoint.
