You can upgrade your kart's performance in the Garage. Head on over to the “Garage” tab in the main menu, select “Kart,” and then go over to the “Upgrade” tab!
Upgrading your kart's tier will give you special gears that can increase a stat of your choice.

Gears and Kart Tiers

Kart Tier: There are 5 tiers, Common → Fine → Rare → Heroic → Legendary, and the number of gears given at each tier will vary.
Gear: Gears can raise a kart's Speed / Acceleration / Boost Acceleration / Boost Time. (Up to Stage 10)

You can try to upgrade the kart tier with Lucci. If you succeed, you will be given gears.
Details for each tier are as follows:

* Lucci will be spent regardless of whether the upgrade has been successful or not.

Owned Gears: Number of available gears.

Applicable Gears: Kart's increased performance upon using the gear. Performance that's currently applied is shown in blue, and the performance that is about to be applied is displayed in yellow.

You can reset applied gears by pressing the “Reset Gears” button in the upgrade area.
Resetting gears will cost Lucci and all your applied gears will be reset. (Your total number of gears is retained.)

The amount of Lucci spent to reset gears increases based on the number of gears applied.
