Mario Kart 7 Cheats For 3DS

  1. Turbo Boost at Bouncing Music Notes Section in Music Park Track

    Near the end of the Music Park Track there is a segment where these Musical Notes bounce up and down every few seconds. When these Musical Notes bounce they make the ground around them tremble and if they manage to make you bounce it will cause you to lose speed. If you time it correctly and press the R Button right when you are bounced you will get a Turbo Boost for a short period of time.

  2. Coin Unlockable Kart Parts

    Once you collect a certain amount of coins you unlock a random kart part (either a body, set of wheels, or glider). You can get coins during a race, but only the coins you have when you finish a race (max of 10 coins per race) will be added to your total.

    At first, you get a new part every 50 coins.

    After reaching 300 total coins, you will get a new part every 100 coins.

    Then after reaching 1,000 total coins, you will get a new part every 200 coins.

    Finally, after reaching 2,000 coins, you will get a new part every 500 coins. You need a grand total of 5,000 coins to unlock all standard kart parts.

    The gold parts are special, and can be obtained by collecting even more coins, or by fulfilling certain conditions. You can see how many coins you've collected so far by selecting "Mario Kart Channel" from the title screen, then clicking the icon of your Mii's face.
