If you’ve ever played any of the entries in the Mario Kart series I think y0u’ll agree with me that they’re the best kart style racers of all-time.  I’ll never forget all of the great race nights that I was a part of back in my college days.  There used to be some serious Mario Kart matches that resulted in all kinds of yelling, swearing, spitting, and peeing.  Yes, we take our racing seriously!

Mario Kart fans can now enjoy the series in a whole new different light with R/C Mario Kart cars.  These little remote controlled wonders simulate the videogame experience as best they can.  The best part is that you can still “pick-up” the item boxes, albeit in imaginary form, but your kart will react as if it really did get a power-up, or hit by a turtle shell.  Just watch the video below as these two bozos play with the R/C cars to see what I mean.  You’ll notice the cars speed up like they have a turbo mushroom, or spin out like they’ve been hit by a turtle shell missile.

It’s pretty neat looking, but not for me.  I think I’d rather watch ants have sex, but that’s not to say R/C Mario Kart sucks.  I just don’t have the patience for watching little figures drive around on the floor.  Check it out for yourself below.  You’ve been blue shelled…
