Don't know if it's what you're looking for but I found it useful when I started looking into customization.

Gamefaqs has tons of info on character classes: http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii-u/700050...9430#section32

As well as part stats: http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii-u/700050...9430#section31

If that's not enough, here's a Stats Calculator: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/MK8Stats.php

Broke into the 2400 VR range last night; I am definitely more of a consistent Top 5 finisher than a Top 2 finisher now as competition is getting more fierce. I'm glad to see more people seem to be breaking away from the stats-whorey heavy character/slick wheels/sports coupe-mach 8-circuit special mold; I have to admit a certain sense of admiration whenever someone can consistently beat me with a baby character (alongside anger. always anger.)

One of those baby character drivers you have run into might just be my 12 yr old daughter. She has become the new MK household champ, consistently placing in the top 3 online most times - mostly w/ Baby Mario. And with the Wheel, no less.

My days of the in house MK champ died when MK Wii online went away.

I've noticed that there are no indications as to the performance of a particular kart/wheel or bike/wheel combination in the game. I'll have to actually crack open the strategy guide and see what they have to say!

I also hate the vertical split screen! It's awful. I wish they would at least allow the option of vertical or horizontal.

Sorry if this obvious, but you know you can press "+" on the kart selection screen to see the stats, right?

Or there's also this stats calculator I posted before: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/MK8Stats.php

Speaking of no instructions, I had to Google what the heck the stars indicator with 0/6 was in the upper left on the post-race screen.

Answer - it's for indicating a favorite highlight reel for MarioKart TV - hit the + to add the previous replay to favorites. Once you have 6 favorites, you have to go into MKTV to delete them.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

That's a good tip. It is not at all obvious that you see stats that way!

If you've played MK8 on-line, you probably identify with this Penny Arcade comic (warning: F-bombs):

Broke 3000VR last night. Unfortunately, after reaching 3002, I decided to do one more race, came in first, then immediately got a communication error disconnect before anyone else finished and was knocked down to 2989 because of it. Arrgh. You know, for all the complaints of item spam (which I mean, welcome to Mario Kart), lag, lack of voice chat, etc., the only thing that really bothers me about MK8's online play is the fairly regular disconnects (about once or twice a day). Or is that just me?
