No.

Without the Blue Shell, the winner gets decided after the first set of items.

Yes I hate when your in first place the whole game and then you get to the end and a blue shell hits you and you end up in 3rd especially on 150cc on your 4th race going for 3 stars then you end up with 1 star.... T_T

No, just balance their frequency. I mean it's pretty much a staple by now, and without it, the person in first is pretty much going to lead the race about 80% of the time.

They can think of a way around it. As it is, it is frustrating to let one item determine your ending position in the race.

Sonic Transformed handles this much better, and allows you to to dodge its "blue shell" item. Therefore, the races feel more skill based than item based, where in Mario Kart you just have to hope a blue shell doesn't come your way. Not only that, but the blue shell doesn't really benefit the person who picks up the item anyways.

No, but I'd rather they make them the way they were in 64 version, plowing through all players in-between yourself and that of the leading one.

No, they justf need to be more powerful, why not home in on every play then blast the one in first?

I've said in a couple other topics that the Blue Shell should hit every player in front of the player who launched it. The players up to 2nd place would get a red/green shell level hit while 1st place would get the big explosion. That way it actually benefits the player who launched it (and those behind him/her) and it doesn't totally screw the player in first place.
