Not awful at all. I got quite good at it.

It was some time ago, but if I remember correctly they said they have implemented a mechanic/system (or something like that), that prevent people to do such shortcuts. I think it has something to do with Lakitu's recovery thing. I think it was something that he pulls you back to the main track were you have been, if you get to unusual places, even if you didn't fall into a pit or something.
Not totally sure tho.

So apparently there are 2 other retro tracks leaked.
In one of GameXplain's MK8 gameplay you can see at Sunshine Airport a sideboard with "GCN Sherbet Land" and "N64 Yoshi Valley" on it.
I didn't see it, because I am blind. lol Can someone confirm that?

I'm really hoping for Yoshi's Valley, myself. Like the GameXplain guys already said, just think of all the crazy possible routes they could come up for that course. And having that one course again where you have no clue who is ahead of who until the end would be chaotic and awesome!

So yea.. It is indeed Yoshi Valley and Sherbet Land.
Look @3:05 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s84ADC9smzY

Yeah! Can't wait to see Yoshi Valley!

@DestinyMan
I was trying to embed it, but doesn't really worked.
It seems like this forum doesn't like me. Nothing like this works. :3
Edit: Never mind. I tried it again.. And it worked. I definitely get trolled here. xD
I edited the Video out because it is unnecessary now.

If you've watched that GameXplain video, what do you think that cannon box/speaker like item will do?

Probably what he said in the video.
Blowing away items away and/or stun(spinning) other racers that get hit by it.

I'm curious if you will be able to jump off the left barrier at the beginning of N64 rainbow road for a nice short cut like you used to be able to.

Nope, you stay close to the ground this time.

Also, here's an IGN video comparing the N64's Rainbow Road to Mario Kart 8's retro remake. This give the 60 FPS justice. Be sure to watch in HD for full effect, it is incredible.

You know what, I think I like some of the new tracks as well. Particularly Shy Guy Falls and Water Park.

Let's have a quick look at retro courses! What do we know?

Shell Cup:
Moo Moo Meadows (Wii)
Cheep Cheep Beach (DS)
Mario Circuit (GBA)
Toad's Turnpike (N64)

Banana Cup:
Dry Dry Desert (GCN)
Donut Plains 3 (SNES)
Royal Raceway (N64)
DK Jungle (3DS)

Leaf Cup: (Here's where things get sticky. We don't have proof of what's in this cup, so I'm just gonna set what I think is here in here, and some of them are unconfirmed, yes.)
Sherbet Land (GCN)
Yoshi Canyon (N64)
Grumble Volcano (Wii)

Lightning Cup:
Melody Motorway (3DS)
Tick Tock Clock (DS)
Rainbow Road (N64)

So, we still have three spots open. A few other numbers:
SNES remakes/total courses: 9/20 (I think we'll see one more of these. I'll list what hasn't been used, later.)
N64 remakes/total courses: 15/16 (Wario Stadium is the only one open, but it's not up for debate, as we already have four N64 courses in this game.)
GBA remakes/total courses: 8/20 (I also think we'll see another one of these. I'll list options below.)
GCN remakes/total courses: 12/16 (I'll list open options below, as per usual, but we may not see another one of these.)
DS remakes/total courses: 10/16 (Ditto)
Wii remakes/total courses: 6/16 (Ditto)

SO! What hasn't been used? What's still available for a retro course? Well, Wario Stadium sure as heck isn't. But what else?

Super Mario Kart: Mario Circuit 4, Donut Plains 2, Ghost Valley 1, Ghost Valley 3, Bowser's Castle 1, Bowser's Castle 2, Bowser's Castle 3, Choco Island 1, Koopa Beach 1, Vanilla Lake 1, Vanilla Lake 2
If you ask me, we're long overdue for a Bowser's Castle from this game. There's three of them and we don't even have one. Throw this bad boy in the Leaf Cup at the end, or something.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit: Riverside Park, Boo Lake, Cheese Land, Snow Land, Ribbon Road, Yoshi Desert, Lakeside Park, Broken Pier, Bowser Castle 4, Rainbow Road, Cheep-Cheep Island, Sunset Wilds
This one has so many courses left, it's practically tearing up at the thought of only having one rep, in this game. I would love to speculate, but honestly, all I can say is that Bowser Castle 4 and Rainbow Road are extremely unlikely. I haven't played this game, so that's really all I can tell you.

Mario Kart Wii: Luigi Circuit, Toad's Factory, Mario Circuit, DK Summit, Wario's Gold Mine, Daisy Circuit, Dry Dry Ruins, Moonview Highway, Bowser's Castle, Rainbow Road
While I don't think we'll see one from this game, it's still worth looking into. I'd like to see a remake of Dry Dry Ruins or Wario's Gold Mine, myself.

Mario Kart DS: Figure-8 Circuit, Shroom Ridge, Mario Circuit, Wario Stadium, Bowser's Castle, Rainbow Road
Again, I don't think this one will get another course, but if it does, it'll probably be the Figure-8 Circuit (and most likely, it'll take the spot of the GBA course that won't be there.)

Mario Kart 7: Toad Circuit, Daisy Hills, Cheep Cheep Cape, Shy Guy Bazaar, Wuhu Loop, Mario Circuit, Alpine Pass, Piranha Plant Pipeway, Wario's Galleon, Koopa City, Wuhu Mountain Loop, Rosalina's Ice World, Bowser Castle, Rainbow Road
I feel like this game could use more rep, but there doesn't appear to be any more room for it, so here it is.

Mario Kart Double Dash: Mushroom City, Wario Colosseum, Bowser's Castle, Rainbow Road
This one's in the same boat as the N64 one. There's so few left, that I can't imagine them blowing any more of it here. Difference is, the N64 game only has one course left, and is in all four cups, already.

Mario Kart 64: Wario Stadium
Yup. Only one left. And it's a Wario stage. I sense we won't be seeing this until Mario Kart 9, but let's not get ahead of ourselves! I have another idea to discuss.

So, what does this lead me to?
Does anyone think we may see 10 cups, soon, rather than the usual 8? Curious question, I'm sure, but think about it: The Wii U has way more disc storage than the previous games were able to get a hold of, and there are becoming more and more and more games to make remake levels off of. Lord knows, many of the games that only got two reps, this time around, could certainly use more, and another Retro cup could fill that spot quite nicely.

Of course, I'm not suggesting this happens now. It might. But it might happen next game, or the game after that. What do you guys think? And do you think both new cups will be retro cups, normal cups, or one of each?

If Wario Colosseum isn't revealed, I'm going to be very upset. It seems like a perfect choice for the anti-gravity mechanic.

Man, I want to get this day one, but am conflicted as I have so many others to play. I will get it eventually, though. We'll see if I can withstand the hype.

I'm still really hoping that there will be more than the usual 8 cups in this game. The WiiU is obviously capable of it. I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't add them in. I mean didn't Super Circuit have more than 32 tracks? I'll honestly be somewhat disappointed if we don't get more than 8. I think it's about time to add more.

40, IIRC, but half of those were copy-pasted from Super Mario Kart, so there was no real creative process involved. Even so, there may, in fact, be 10 cups, but we do know that Rainbow Road (N64) is going to be in the Lightning Cup, so it doesn't look good for this theory.

Apparently the local multiplayer looks a bit different in this version. Screens aren't shared horizontally anymore;
