    I will be paring this back in my machine since the limit is 30 players. :( Anyone who hasn't shown up as a Mii on my system I will remove. If you got a Mariokart Wii for Christmas and wish to join please post your friend code and we'll get you to the racing this Friday (some folks will likley be great targets to beat up on since they will be hung over :D).

    I just stumbled on to this thread and would like to try my hand (err.. wheel) at it. What is the process to be included? I won't be available this week but would like to know how to get started once I am ready. I have raced a bit online but not in a private group. How deep is the water? (VR scores?) I would like to know what I'm getting into. Sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks

    I'm a 5,800-ish, though we have a couple of 8k-ers, but mainly we're in the 6k range. It is not consistent with who races. We've had as many as 10 race on a Friday night. I usually start a room, though others have done so in my absence. All I need is your friend code. By Friday I will be solidifying who's racing since we have more than 30 folks (the Wii only holds 30).

    Bummer, going to miss the first race of the year. :( Heading out of town for the weekend. No internet at the cabin... Do have cable though so I'll be able to watch the Winter Classic at least.

    Since when are you a 5800? You used to be up in the 7-8000 range. :confused: Have you been racing drunk? :lol:

    I'm back to 6,300-ish as of last night. When I transitioned to manual my VR took a major hit, I was near 5k for a while. However, lately I've been making a come back, I've been doing well on time trials to, in fact faster on some with manual than with automatic. I can say within the month I'll be beating a few of you consistently. :D

    I'll be there for sure. I have missed the last few.

    On the VR, I had the same thing happened when I tried manual but I went back to the 3000s! :( I just can't learn the manual.

    So it was fun for a while when I went back to automatic with a 3000 VR and would end up in the first 3 getting 150 points per race and give -100 to the other players. :lol: :lol: Mild schadenfreude is always amusing.

    I think for the first time in quite a while, and possibly for the only time in the months to come, I have a Friday night with nothing planned. Hoping I can make it this week so that I can be soundly thumped by all of you. :)

    Smiddy are you sandbagging me?:rolleyes:;) Thanks for the info. When I'm available I will forward my friend code. How do more than 10 people race together? Is there more than 1 room? TIA. Don

    12 folks can race at once, we've had 10 once that I can recall. There was a night I couldn't make it and there were over 10 if I recall correctly. I don't recall what happened.

    EDIT: I'm ok, BTW, I have been learning manual and am getting to back where I was before I started using manual, in automatic I was about 8,200-ish.

    Hey All, I am going to highlight the ones coming thus far in the first post. If you intend on joining we'll need your friend code and you'll need mine to join (if I am hosting, which I intend to).

    I'm looking forward to joining you all. I'm glad I started out using manual it sounds like a tough transition. A closed group will be nice. Worldwide can be brutal at times when the hackers are out. Again, Thanks. Don

    google gecko os

    gecko os allows you to play wii games from other regions and it also supports cheat codes. gecko codes are the cheat codes. they are like game genie and gameshark and action replay codes. gecko os can also install a remote debugger utility on a usb drive that cab enable you to take game screenshots.
