Mario Kart 8 offers a paralysing number of choices, but one brave fan has tracked them all down for you.


Mario Kart 8 can be something of an anxious experience – there’s just so many options when choosing your kart. Obviously you’ll have some preferences to follow and weaknesses to avoid, but building a competitive vehicle can be daunting.

That’s why Robledo has tracked down all 179,712 possible combinations and compiled them in a handy companion app, Configure MK8. A free resource available now from Google Play for Android devices, the app may come to iOS if there is demand.

As noted by Kotaku all this information is available online, but it’s super handy to have it all collated and easily searched – and on a second screen device, no less.

I’d be pretty interested to know what your favourite builds are and why, if you care to share your strategies.
