Ugh, the so-close so-far moments in Mario Kart... I still remember where I was blue shell'd 6 times throughout a single race. The last blue shell was when the finish line was in sight, on Bowser's Castle (Wii version). I was also hit in rapid succession by a Red Shell, a Thunderbolt, another Red Shell, and tossed into the lava pillars. From 1st to 8th in a flash. =/ My rating plummeted, lol. The worst part is that is was terrible luck on my part, no hackers or anything.
