@6ch6ris6 - That's odd; I just turned on SpotPass again for MK7 and it's been working fine for me AFAIK (I only go in there for StreetPasses anymore). Who knows? Maybe NoE is done with MK7 (though that would surprise the hell outta me, tbh) but NoA isn't.

Exactly.

Quick question how does the time trial ghost data work?
Does it save global data to your game or only the people you have street passed coz according to my ghost data im like in 5 or 6 place from the top of the list on quite a few races.
Now im quite good at the game but theres always a ton more people better than me at games online.
Can anyone let me know how it works?

I think the ghost data is gained from SpotPass and comes from random players, not just those you've StreetPassed. I'm sure of this because I only have about 20 StreetPasses and a whole ton of ghost data.

Also, if anyone wants to race me, I might consider it. I'd say I'm pretty decent at the game too, so be warned.

Hi I'm completely new to the 3DS and Mario kart 7. I'm trying to figure out how to download the new update for Mario kart 7 so it can let me play online with others. I just downloaded some type of MK7 software update but it still gives me an error. What gives? I've been playing all the cups in Grand Prix and I'm getting to know the stages, old and new alike. I'm ready to play with someone now..

Go to the eShop and download it from there. It's available for free, don't worry, it's just you don't get the necessary Mario Kart 7 patch/track fixes in the standard 3DS update.

Noone told me that after finding the update in Notifications (not the E Shop directly, theirs no such section to go to for updates) for the Mario Kart 7 game, that I must go to system settings and choose, other options and then select system update. It took me a few hours to figure it all out. But thanks for the simple reply. :)

Now, I have a question here. Why is everyone that I race with able to go much more faster than me? Are they all..cheating!?? Are is it some type of secret upgrade that everyone seems to have but me yet? I have over 3000 coins right now.

Also, how do you do the boost at race start? Thanks.

So, just some things that I noticed about Mario Kart 7. Mario Kart 64 was indeed a better made racing game to me. MK7 just barely passes as okay. For starters, it seems that all of the characters/drivers handle the same. There is no protection on MK7 for stopping a banana peel or shell coming your way if you have three green shells (or red) like you used to have in MK64. You still get hurt. The life span of green shells on the stages seems to be cut short. Some of the voice acting for certain characters doesn't mix well (to me) like for Wiggler. He makes a sound like a baby for crying out loud. That's not Wiggler! The music is pretty generic (way more so than MK64) as most of the stages sound the same with no originality at all. For example, you could be at a gorgeous fall time stage with pink pedals falling off of the trees and you have a up tempo, guitar jam instead of something more calm and relaxing. Something more dreamy and pretty?? About the only stage that fits the music right is Luigis Mans, and older classic stages from the super nintendo * N64 version of Mario Kart.

The game is too simple for options. Do more options open up to you later on? It said that I earned some type of custom upgrade or option but there is no menu to find it on? No way to turn off the music or just decrease the volume. Change controls if needed,etc.

It looks like this game was made just a little too fast with not much care involved. But that's just my impression of MK7 thus far.

I've played most all of the stages now but I haven't found many shortcuts, if that's what's making the other racers get a power edge over me and leaving me behind in the dust. Oh Neo Bowser city is a badass (means cool!) stage!

The drivers and karts definitely don't handle all the same... try mixing things up a bit more and you'll see the obvious differences :p

Three green shells gives you protection if the shell is in the right location when you contact a banana/shell/whatever. By rotating around your racer, obviously sometimes there's an opening, and then sometimes there's a shell to block stuff. Simple stuff.

Nintendo games have pretty much never given you options for controls, music volume, etc. :p

Okay so I see your point Wobee. Maybe I have more to learn about MK7 still. So what's the deal with everyone being faster then me? There really is a difference in speed here and I'm not just saying this because I don't know all the shortcuts yet.

Mario kart 7 is epic and awesome and fun. The only problem is that they should of added more playable characters and a online ranking.
other than that Mario Kart 7 is the best Nintendo Racing game.

Bowser is my favorite character, so I thought that I might be going a little slower by picking him a lot. But then I starting picking Koopa and even Wiggler. Still the same slow ass driving! What gives!? Everyone else is always passing me in the dust and I can't figure out how to do the boost at start of race.

I think there are enough playable characters. But they could have done a better job at selecting some of the newer characters on MK7. They could have added a few more battle stages you know. It randomizes between just like five stages and that gets old fast. What do the stars next to your Mii mean?

the stars represents whether you have finished the Grand Prix with that amount of stars. It kinda in a way shows how good you are at racing (In my view)

@ArticBird I have a feeling that you are racing on 50cc. There is 100cc and 150cc also.
I'm also feeling kind, so heres the boost trick.
Hold down on A as the 2 stops spinning. If you have trouble with that, try pressing A when the 2nd light turns red during the countdown.

One more thing, you might just want to double check your Friend Code. No one will want to add you, if you think its right.

Would you want a brain surgeon thinking they knew what they was doing, or 100% sure they knows what they're doing?

Oh, forgot 1 thing. You said you were playing as Bowser, so maybe your cart is too heavy?
Try the basic cart set up with mario to see if that makes any speed difference, or you just need to work on your MK7 skills. :)

Okay thanks Knuckles (and CosmicMii). Knuckles I already added you as a friend yesterday. Now I'm going to go to friends/opponents list to see who I can find. If I don't find anyone, I'll just keep doing Worldwide (or community) with all the cheaters :D Oh and I've been doing 100 cup.
