Mario Kart 8 Vehicle Customization Guide

Vehicle Customization Guide



All standard parts in Mario Kart 8 are enough to win a race, but the various karts, tires, and gliders do actually affect the player's attributes and can in turn impact races.



New parts are unlocked with every 50 coins up until the 1000 coin mark. At that point, parts are unlocked every 100 coins until 2800 total coins, which unlocks everything.



Listed below are the values for all parts in the game. With enough analysis and experimentation you can find the ultimate setup for your playstyle.
