If your best finish with the Wii Wheel is a pathetic 12th, don’t fret; you can also use the Nunchuck, Classic Controller or even a retro GameCube pad.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/stuff/gadget-of-the-day-mario-kart-wii </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/mario-kart-wii/gadget-day-mario-kart-wii/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/mario-kart-wii/gadget-day-mario-kart-wii/news#comments Mario Kart Wii Nintendo Mon, 14 Apr 2008 05:00:00 +0000 admin 9858 at http://www.stuff.tv
