You can also search the name of your desired part without ther[] characters.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All kart parts are in their NA names. Sorry EU and JP.

Hey there, this is my first guide I've ever wriiten not counting
the one boss FAQ which never got passed the third boss!

So, as you know, a big part about a great game, Mario Kart 7,
is that you can customize your kart to your liking based on three different
parts that you can mix-and-match to get the stats that you like.

There are many different parts and many different combinations, and here
I'll show you how certain parts will affect the outcome of your kart!

This guide is almost done, but missing 3 parts 
(Streamliner, Gold kart, and Ghastly Glider).

Thank you to all the contributers!

Version 0.8 - December 6 2011
  Started up the guide today! Version 0.8 because I have yet to unlock
  some parts...

Version 0.9 - December 7 2011
  Added a few parts thanks to snowflake182 and added a 
  "How to use" section.


Version 0.95 - December 7 2011
  Added a few more parts thanks to JacobARF
  and info about the Ghastly Glider.
  Took out bullet duck.

()Stats Explanation
()()()()()()()()()()()
This game has 5 different stats:

Speed - How high your top speed will go. 
        Increase with coins (10 max per race)

Acceleration - Your recovery speed. You'll get back in the race after items 
               faster.

Weight - When two cars collide, the higher weight pushes the other.
         Also determines glide time. Less weight = longer glide.

Handling - How easy it is to turn. High handling will feel smooth
           and you will not lose speed while turning.

Off Road - Your capabilities while riding away from main road.
           Main Road isn't always on road, though.
           Underwater counts as off road, and so does certain parts of stages
           like snow in Rosalina's Ice World or almost everything in
           Kalimari Desert. Rushing water in Koopa Cape is off road.


To calculate these stats, I took a base to work with
(Mario + Standard + Standard + Super Glider)
and a calculated the changes in the bars.

There are 6 bars, so stats are /6, and changes mean:
+1 - This means one WHOLE bar is added.
-.5 - This means that half a bar is lost compared to the standard.

()How to Use     [HOW USE]
()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()

This guide is simple to use:
browse for your part, and see!

But if you're away from the game and wanna see the final stats, 
take this.

Stats
Speed: 3.5
Accel: 3
Weight: 3.25
Handle: 2.75
Off R: 3.75


Those are the stats for a completely standard Mario.
Now, to find it out, add/subtract the stats depending on your
parts and characters.

So a Yoshi, Zucchini, Monster, Super Glider

is
Speed: 4.5
Accel: 2.5
Weight: 3.75
Handle: 1.5
Off R: 5

Okay, I cheated there, but you get it, right?

I won't cheat here

Yoshi,Standard,Standard,Flower
Flower adds 0.25 accel, loses 0.25 weight

Yoshi adds
Speed: -0.25
Accel: +0.5
Weight: -0.5
Handle: +0.25
Off R: 0

So the actual change will be:

Speed: -0.25
Accel: +0.75
Weight: -0.75
Handle: +0.25
Off R: 0

then you take that from the base.

3.5 - 0.25  = 3.25
3 + 0.5     = 3.5
3.25 - 0.75 = 1.5
3.75 + 0.25 = 4
3.75 + 0    = 3.75


I think you get it now!

()Customizable Parts         [PARTS]
()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()
They will be listed like the way the game does, starting with
the standard and scrolling upwards.

The parts are shown like this:

Part Name    *****
Visual Description (By me)
Driving Description (By me)

Speed

Weight
Handle

At the part *****, I may put CC for karts. That means Changes Colour
depending on the character, there are different colours.
Also, I may put a little comment there.


The Stats will have a +1 or -0.5 depending on the differences between
it and the standard part for its catagory.

A zero means no changes are made whatsoever.

()Character Stats      [CHAR]
()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()
Nintendo has seperated all 16 characters in this game into
5 different weight classes, each with their ups and downs.

I have named the weight classes as the following:

Light
Fair
Medium
Big
Heavy

Instead of every charcter getting different stats like MKWii, they
have split it so each weight group has a set stat bonus.
That way we won't play with 11 other Funky Kongs!

Light characters add acceleration, where as Heavies add more speed.
Play with you favourites!

P.S. I recommend choosing your favourite character, as a character,
not because of their stats and building around that.


()()()()()()()()
()Weights [WEIGHT]
()()()()()()()()
Set up like this:

Name
Characters in it
Breif Description

Stats (set up like karts)


LIGHT
Toad, Koopa Troopa, Shy Guy, and Lakitu
The lights build on recovery and ease - great for beginners!

Speed: -0.5
Accel: +1
Weight: -1
Handle: +0.25
Off R: +0.25


FAIR      (This one's mine)
Peach, Yoshi, and Daisy
They work like lights, but gain less, lose less.

Speed: -0.25
Accel: +0.5
Weight: -0.5
Handle: +0.25
Off R: 0


MEDIUM
Mario and Luigi (Small cast, eh?)
These were my bases, so it's all zero. all around for them!

Speed: 0
Accel: 0
Weight: 0 
Handle: 0 
Off R: 0


BIG
Donkey Kong, Rosalina, and Wiggler
They add some speed and weight, lowering their handling in the process.

Speed: +0.25
Accel: -0.5
Weight: +0.5
Handle: -0.25
Off R: 0


HEAVY
Bowser, Wario, Metal Mario, and Honey Queen
They work like the bigs, but lose more, gain more. I hate this class.

Speed:+0.5
Accel: -1
Weight: +1
Handle: -0.25
Off R: -0.25



If you happened to notice, the classes are opposites.

Light and Heavy add/subtract the same stats at the same increments,
just a different manipulator.
Same goes for Fair and Big.
