I've noticed something peculiar online, albeit trivial...

There are slight differences on some courses between online and offline. Generally, either enemies, obstacles, coins, or item boxes are missing (or arranged differently) when racing online. Here's what I've noticed so far (see for yourself the next time you're online!):

CCL: One crab missing at the end
MC: Second set of coins missing in the castle
MP: The Bouncing Note in the middle is just gone
PPS: Goombas are missing at the last turns (not the cardboard cut-outs)
WS: One crab missing before gliding, coins missing around the pipe area
BC: One Thwomp is missing
rCM: Item boxes missing from top gliding route

There is most definitely more than that though. My only question is: Why? There really is no reason for it. Is it that the online courses were just earlier versions of the courses, and they just decided to add an enemy or coin here or there as finishing touches/last-minute changes? Yeah, I know I really shouldn't be questioning these kinds of things... ^^;

Also note that obstacles like the Piranha Plants in PPS don't "lock on" to players online; they lunge at predetermined intervals.

This throws me off so much when playing offline >.<
I hate when you are, literally, in front of them and they get you LOL

I belive its to help reduce lag when playing

Can't we all agree to disagree?

The Cheep-Cheep are missing from Koopa Cape

The same goes for the penguins in Rosalina's Ice World. I also noticed that Wii Maple Treeway is missing 1 Wiggler. Wuhu Loop lacks a few cars, not that it had many to begin with.... I believe that Shy Guy Bazaar is missing 1 of the Shy Guys in the gliding section, but I might misremember. Similarly, I might be mistaken in believing that 1 or more hot-air balloons are missing from Daisy Hills.
