Change Characters 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.
Wiimmfi Wiimm, Leseratte Support to play on a custom server has been added as a replacement to Nintendo WFC.
Max Lap Count Modifier Geeh, MrEvil A track can have between one and eight laps.
Speed Modifier MrBean35000vr Tracks have a speed modifier applied (e.g. 2× speed) which causes all parts of the game's physics to move at the increased speed (including vehicles, items and boosts).
Automatic BRSAR Patching Elias_ The revo_kart.brsar file will now be automatically patched to prevent music from cutting off mid-race.
Don't Hide Position After Race MrBean35000vr The position tracker will remain on-screen after completing a race.
Allow Looking Backwards During Respawn Ro You will now be able to look behind when respawning instead of only forward.
