Wii racers get a wheel deal

Stiffen your in-game kart control

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Mario Kart is a great Wii game, but because the driving wheel doesn’t have a fixed position, kart control can be tricky. Thankfully, an ingenious Wii Wheel Stand has been…ahem… invented.

The Wii Wheel Stand lets you fix your driving position

The stand simply clips onto the back of the Wii Wheel, around the section where the Remote slots into. A suction-cup on the bottom of the stand then allows you to fix the wheel onto a hard surface, like a tabletop, to give you a better quality of control.

The stand rotates vertically by up to 120°, but it doesn’t appear as though the stand allows the height of the wheel to be adjusted.

For now the Wii Wheel Stand is only available in Japan, where it costs around ¥3000 (£14/€18/$28). But, we’ll let you know when a UK price and availability date parks up.
