I think you have to meet some sort of criteria when it comes to gaining points in Wi-Fi races. I've been getting this all the time. In a 12-person match, I mostly finish in first place but other people get more points than me? For example, the first placer will get +40 and the second racer can even get +120 something. This is confusing me. Even in 2nd place I got +0. Does having the gold wheel icon affect the increase/decrease of your points or is there something like "more points if you use too much items, -5 points for each fall"? I appreciate the help. I'm just infuriated by the fact that I got +1 point in Koopa Cape but I finished in 1st place!
