Gamecube Input Lag?

Hey guys. I don’t play a LOT of gamecube, but I noticed something recently and thought I’d see what SRK says. Do first-party gamecube controllers lag? Is it the cube? The PCBs? The games I’m playing?

The biggest showing was Mario Kart. One day I played Double Dash, and I played MK64 the next day. GOD it was so much better on the 64, the controls were smooth, lagless, and absolutely orgasmic. DD? Bleh, it felt like I was lagging terribly. I’ve felt similar things with smash bros melee vs 64. Anybody know?
