If you didn't know, there is a flaw in the Mario Cart 7 Maka Wahu track. It allows a player to jump across half the track, into water, and end up on the other side of the track, effectively skipping half of the track. This is considered cheating, of course, but Nintendo is not offering a fix for it.
Here is what Nintendo said:
"We are aware that it is possible to navigate a certain part of the track in Wuhu Island in a way that allows a large part of the course to be bypassed," Nintendo rep Buddy Roemer (no, not that Buddy Roemer) told the site. And though Nintendo acknowledges the glitch, Roemer said there "are no plans to update the game to remove this shortcut." Not for the moment, at least.
At least they know about it. Doesn't make people happy, though.
