    Thanks Greg! You'll have to make a full report on how it went. HDTVSportsfan is pretty good, so he will likely be your competition if he shows up. He hasn't raced in the past few weeks.

    Actually, I can make the report now.

    Neomaine (greg):
    Wins = 11
    Losses = 1

    :hurah:

    ...with my only loss giong to Milkman on Mushroom Gorge. He came from being in last place for the first 2.5 laps ( running into all my well placed bananas and bad blocks, 'cause that's all I ever get :nono: ...) and getting three consecutive bullets to fly past me at the last second. :mad:

    I'll put you in my system this evening so if you are on we can race. I won't be around this weekend, we're leaving tomorrow, so I will be on late this evening and sleeping in tomorrow. :D

    Alright, I'm pretty sure I've got everyone setup in my friends list.

    For tonight, I'd like to stay towards VR. The battle stuff drives (pun intended) me nuts.

    I think I can set it up so its all random courses and will do so if I can figure it out. Pretty sure its in the setting for easy/hard AI, # races per round...etc.

    Wish there was also a randomizer for character and kart. I really miss that option from double-dash. (Everyone's favorite team was red-troopa and toad for the special of all the red shells and boosts...) Keeps everything on an even playing field. Me and the kids played so much that it was the only way to keep interest in the game, and, that it did. Lots of 'Yessss's for good combos and outright swearing for say, Peach and a baby carriage. Favorite track though was the one (forget the name...) that was just a simple oval, about 6 laps and lots of blocks. Skidding and carnage...what a blast.

    Anyway, sorry to go OT. See you all tonight! I'll be on about 5 mins early to get things setup.

    Pretty light turnout this week. Just me and Art ran the first race. I was nice and even let him finish a couple! :D

    Hopefully, Art, you didn't think I was being condescending by waiting at the finish line for you a couple of times. I still like running my race but feel its better to wait and let the noobs finish the course to get the experience.

    Then Koji and Milkman joined in for a race (or was it two?) with Koji drawing my most hated course, N64 Sherbet land, TWICE and winning both close races. But we finished up with Rainbow Road - one of my favorites - for me to get first place. We had both won two races but they awarded to me. I'm guessing that the tie breaker is length of victory but I've got no idea. For all I know, since we were tied in total points, he was told that he was in first place too!

    And so ends my MKart 6/24 report! :D

    And in other news:
    Something I highly recommend to gain experience is to race against ghosts. Its one of the options on the MarioKart Channel with just you and another random ghost. You see the ghost, their kart and what course you'll be racing and then you get to pick your ghost/kart. Great way to see how other people run the courses and use for chars/karts while you generally race against other ghosts that are close to your times.. You get to see your own win/loss, and unlock some new chars/karts along the way, but otherwise its pretty good - and fun - experience.

    I'm pretty sure it was kevinwmsn.

    On the tie, yes the system tells both players that they are first so no egos are bruised. :lol:

    Yes I saw you waiting at the finishline for me however I did get you one time, i threw a bomb while you were waiting and did beat you. :hurah:

    I have just started playing Mario kart and have not unlocked all of the courses yet. I just hated Rainbow Road I keep falling off over and over. :(
