This applies to any version of Mario Kart, but MK8 is the most recent, so the thread was placed here.

What is your current, or highest ever, VR in any Mario Kart game? I got very high in MK7, well over 10,000. I'll find the exact value later.
But for MK8, I just hit 2300 today! I'm slowly climbing to 10,000... very slowly.

I think I have just under 3000 VR in MK8, iirc~ In MK7 I had around 6,000 before I stopped playing. I feel like getting VR is significantly more difficult in MK8 though... or maybe that's just me.  Razz

Also, did anyone actually ever find out what VR was intended to stand for?

I always assumed in meant Versus Raing, or Versus Ranking. But I'm not sure if that's it or not.  Thinking 

MK8 is slightly harder than MK7, mathematically, due to the increase in number of racerx. The VR distribution remains the same as Mario Kart 7, giving 1-3 the most VR and then the last 3 almost always negative or a low number. (The exact values vary according to the opposing racers VR; so if you lose to someone with 10000 VR and you have 1000, you'll almost always get an increase.)
The only part that has changed is the middle, which has been expanded to accommodate 12 racers. So, the middle VR distribution, generally 10 or so points, now has 6 spots instead of 3. This means that, approx half the time now, you earn less VR than a top 3 finish.

At least, these are my thoughts and observations on the matter.

I completely forgot that MK8 has more racers than MK7. ;__; But yeah, that would account for the increased difficulty in earning VR.

We need to do more MK8 racing though - I feel as though we've barely played online with it at all since it came out. We should start a tourney or something, and hope that it reaches a conclusion (unlike the other failed tourneys)~

I'd be up for this~

I'm actually going to do some racing today if you want to join too. :3

I have 1637 in MK8, lowest VR I've gotten in a Mario Kart game yet. I don't remember how much I have in MK7 but I believe I had 2070 and in MKWii I had 10,000.
