Feature Author Information
Antifreeze MrBean35000vr, TheLordScruffy, Seeky, Star, _tZ A series of codes which patch commonly known crash causes.
Change Character Between Wi-Fi Races MrBean35000vr When in online play, the player's character, vehicle, and drift mode choice may be changed between races by pressing + on the Wii Remote (or Start on the GCN Controller) when on the VR screen. This simply takes the player back to the character select menu and then returns them to the vote when they have reselected. If the time limit expires, the currently selected options are taken.
Custom Server Support Wiimm and Leseratte Support to play on Wiimmfi has been added as a replacement to Nintendo WFC. The pack comes with a custom region so that regional/continental races work.
Disable Time Limit RoGamer The 5 minute time limit, the 5:56 disconnection and the 30-second finish threshold have been removed to accomodate for the longer races.
Equal Item Probability Vega Makes all item probabilities exactly equal, thus making items random.
Force 150cc Online XeR Forces 150cc in online races.
Increase Visual Distance davidevgen Increases the draw distance of objects, to allow players to spot items earlier.
Instant Item Boxes Anarion Item Boxes now respawn instantly, to allow everyone to get items.
No Ghost Data Saving mdmwii The game will not save ghosts at all to prevent accidental overwriting of ghosts. Personal leaderboards are also not updated.
Points Table Modifier dswii3ds Every score in friend rooms and VS mode is multiplied by the amount of players.
Remove Mushroom Bug Vega The mushroom bug is a "feature" implemented in the game to give you a mushroom for your 16th, 18th, and 20th+ item regardless of your position.
Show Everyone's Times After Race Melg Every player's finish time is shown at the end of each race in friend rooms and VS mode.
Shroomless TTs Vega Removes Mushrooms in TT mode. This is used in a local competition which attempts to mimic F1 qualifying.
Sprinter Mod Ismy The Sprinter' stats have been modified to more closely resemble an F1 car:
  • Speed: 101km/h
  • Acceleration: Magikruiser
  • Handling: Wild Wing
  • Drift: Flame Runner (inside drift)
Starting Lap Modifier BullyWiiPlaza and Seeky The race is started 47 laps back (for a total of 50 laps) in all modes except TT. The current lap is printed in the milliseconds of the timer.
Ultra UnCut MrBean35000vr and Chadderz Ultra UnCut fixes the Start Line Bug that causes many Ultra Shortcuts.
Item Edits
Feature Author Information
All Items Can Land MrBean35000vr Every item (except the Thundercloud) can land on the floor when dropped and be activated when a racer drives over it. Item effects are identical to if the user actually fired the item themselves. The code has been modified to remove the Blooper.
Blue Shell Speed Modifier mdmwii Blue Shells' travelling speed has been increased to 4x. However, they can still be dodged with Mushrooms.
Bullet Bill Speed Modifier davidevgen Bullet Bills now move at 220 km/h, making them the most valuable item in order to catch up to other players.
Draggable Blue Shells Luis Blue Shells can now be held behind you like Red Shells. They will explode on contact, but not hurt the player. They can be used to protect against other items being shot from behind, but if wheelie-bumped while holding a Blue Shell behind you it will fall away and stay on the ground due to the effect of All Items Can Land.
Fast POW mdmwii The POW hits at the second strike, instead of the third one, to catch players by surprise.
Green Shell Speed Modifier davidevgen and Ismy Green Shells now move at 2x speed forwards and 1,5x speed backwards.
Max Item Limit Modifier davidevgen and Luis Increases the amount of items that can be in play, to make for more chaotic racing.
Mega Thundercloud JoshuaMK The Thundercloud gives a Mega Mushroom effect, instead of shocking the player.
Motion Sensor Bomb Hamster35000vr Bombs only explode when someone gets close to them.
No Bullet Bill Icon Anarion Once you use a Bullet Bill, its icon in the roulette goes away, allowing you to pick up another item while in it.
Replace Blooper with Triple FIBs dswii3ds and Seeky The Blooper is fully replaced by Triple FIBs.
Wooden Box Respawn Modifier Atlas Wooden Boxes respawn faster and closer to the ground.
