    That was fun! My son and I missed the first race by seconds... Had to drag him off MW2.

    Got my fist taste of using manual though. The second race started and I think my son hit 'A' while my pointer was over 'manual'. Took a race but I got the hang of it. May try it again this week and fully switch over. Wasn't as hard as I thought...

    Manual is the only way to Kart - the Power Boost one gets from sliding/snaking thru turns can really only be done in Manual.

    I need to get in on this race night business.....

    I figured something was up, you were not on your game in that first set. You don't use the wheel thow, which will allow you tocontrol it better than someone using a wheel.

    I agree, manual allows you to take corners a lot better on a bike. Though my limited experience with a kart though I have difficulties keeping them on the road. :)

    Unfortunately, I don't get enough practice, and neither does my son. So we're mediocre (mediOgre) at best.

    EDIT: It is mighty fun though...

    I have added you to the list. I will check with my better half, but I don't believe we'll be home this Friday.

    Thanks for the ad - I will make apoint to get as many of these FCs added as I can & keep my eyes peeled for your next round of racing. Would love to join you guys (and girls).

    Was wondering - do any of you happen to also play Excitebots: Trick Racing? Loads of fun, esp if you dig MK Wii. A somewhat greater sense of speed and...well, c;mon on...racing as anthromorphic robot bugs, reptiles, etc that occasionally transform into 2 legged runners, are asked to perform all sorts of bizarre activities during the race, can win a race by earning the most "stars" from various tricks & wicked amounts of air as opposed to coming in 1st....well, it's quite fun - and a bit more psychotic than Kart.

    Excitebots does force you to use the Wheel (or Wiimote by itself) - no nunnchuk, Classic of GameCube control options here. That said, I find the accuracy of using the Wheel in this game far exceeds that of Kart (where I fare much better w/ an analog stick - 'chuk or Classic).

    This one also has a rather bizarre, but totally fun, "Poker Race" mode (also an online option). Same race rules/environments, but you also collect various playing cards strewn around the course. You earn points for how many good poker hands you collect.

    I know it soulds odd to those who have not seen it. It is a sequel of sorts to ExciteTruck (a Wii launch title), but he 4X4s swapped for the weird pseudo-Transofrmer robot critters.

    It can be found for a decent price these days (debuted @ retail for only $40) - if nothing else, consider a rental. You all may dig it - and perhaps MK nights can get some Excitebots sprinkled in as well.

    I hadn't heard of them until now. I was looking for more online type games. We did purchase Madagascar Kart, though it isn't online, my kids love it. I'll give it some thought and see what they look like online and I'll let you know.
