Default Mario Kart 8 CP Time Trial Challenge

Current

SNES Donut Plains

Best Race:
Hot Lap:

Alright Mario Kart players -- time to show your skills. It's the CP Time Trial Challenge -- each week (for as long as interest persists, or we get through them all), we'll pick a new course to compete in.

There will be two titles up for grabs - Best Race (overall time) and Hot Lap (best single lap).

A few rules:

1. You can submit as many times as you want during the week.
2. Your best race and hot lap times do not necessarily need to come from the same run.
3. Runs must be completed in Mario Kart 8's designated time trial mode in 150cc only. No 200cc.
4. Times are to be submitted via screenshot -- just capture an image (or take a picture with your phone) and upload to Imgur (or your preferred host), then post here.
5. No restrictions on characters or karts or wheels -- whatever you think is the best combo for hitting those high times, it's fair game.

For week 1 we'll keep it simple: the first course of the game, Mushroom Cup's Mario Kart Stadium. We'll accept up times til midnight Friday night! Good luck everyone!

Completed

Twisted Mansion

Best Race: 2:06.178 (Lego Man)
Hot Lap: 41.353 (Lego Man)

Mario Kart Stadium

Best Race: 1:48.000 (OutOfTheCube)
Hot Lap: 35.403 (OutOfTheCube)

Is this Switch only? Or Wii U times allowed? (Not that I'd try, I've unlocked hardly anything in the Wii U version)

If Wii U owners really want in on it, sure. The games are functionally the same.

I should add -- we'll do our runs on 150cc, NOT 200cc. Just saw you can switch to 200cc in time trials.

Love the idea! Will definitely give this a whirl on the Wii U version.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Just a heads up that Wii U players will be at a disadvantage -- the Switch version added in a third "ultra" level of drift boost. Some stages it won't change things much but others with long curves like N64 Rainbow Road or Mario Circuit you can get it 3-4 times per lap. Heck even on Mario Kart Stadium there's a couple turns you can stretch for it.

Take a photo with your phone, then go to http://www.imgur.com and upload it. Get the basic direct link version of it then post it like this:

Me and my wife usually play at 100 cc so I'll need some practice, but I'll definitely join in

Seems like something they could easily patch into the Wii U version...dammit, Nintendo!

A dozen races later...

Best Race:


Hot Lap:


Just an FYI - on the Wii U you don't get to choose what CC the Time Trials are set to. Safe to assume it's 150cc though.

I only have it on Wii U, and I loaned my gamepad out to my friend who's dog ate theirs...So might be a bit before I can give this a go.

Mazrim takes the race lead by a couple tenths of a second -- pretty sure I can shave a little time off my run, I'll get back on it tonight.

Had a pretty good run to take back the lead by a good half a second!
