    It seems the original post was incorrect, as users can speed up their item wheel by pressing buttons:

    Jesus. No wonder the AI is such bullshit.

    Honestly, that's, like, the least rubberbanding I've seen in a MK game yet. Compare that to 64, where the CPU will literally speed up to thrice the maximum speed if it falls too much behind.

    There are times (Online Mode) when the item only auto-chooses (pressing the shoulder button did nothing) the item by the time you get to the next part of the map. Yay, so fast.

    But hey, the AI doesn't really matter all that much if you play ranked matches online.

    So this explains why I get red shelled in first place in 150cc before I even reach the first line of items on the first lap.

    What happens if you are not a human player?

    Yeah, that does bites, that the AI can use items faster then human players. While this most likely wont be a problem online for the most part, but when trying to get maxed out ranks, this could pose an unfair challenge.

    I'm sure this can be fixed on the wii u version, that is if some one hacks the game.

    You can press the use item button 3 times in quick succession to speed up the anim and instantly complete it on MK7, is that not the case on MK8?

    If the AI didn't have any sort of rubberbanding, the game would be simply too easy lol. And I second @skawo , that's nothing compared to the MK64 AIs going thrice as fast and teleporting, or the MKWii AIs and the blue shell rains.

    i'm pretty sure you can, every time i grab an item in MK8 i rapidly hit the use item button and the roulette wheel only makes one DALADLA and then gives me something.

    in online games i dont even get to pick my item... it just spins and does not respond. i have to wait for the game to stop the rotating item. It does not happen all the time tho.

    Wrong, there is a specific number of times you press it to get it without using it. It's like 4 or something.
