The Whirling Wheel is one of numerous items featured in and exclusive to Mario Kart Arcade GP DX. It appears as a normal steering wheel with the same build as the Broken Wheel, in addition to a similar function, if to a slightly lesser extent. The Whirling Wheel is classified as a defense-type, forward thrown item. If equipped and collected from an Item Box during a race, the player may toss it toward a driver ahead of them, making their steering uncertain for a short time. As always, this effect is temporary and fades away quickly.
