To start, check out the “Garage” to find, test drive, and purchase the affordable car of your choice. Click “race” to choose an opponent ranging from beginner to boss or even an online opponent. The competition is tough so start off with beginner to give yourself the best chance of winning. You can also decide on the race track length of either 1/4 or 1/2 mile.
To begin the race, tap the highlighted gas pedal to rev your engine as the line-girl waves the starting flag. Carefully watch your RPM and use the “-” and “+” pedals to shift. A blue icon will popup when it’s recommended that you shift, and a green icon will popup at the perfect shifting time right before you redline. When your race finishes, you’ll receive the following stats: time, max speed, 0-60mph & 0-100mph times, race rating, and more).
As you finish each race, you’ll earn money and respect points based on whether or not you won and other accomplishments (e.g. number of perfect shifts, launch bonus, etc.). Both money and respect points act as currency by which you can purchase upgrades to your car. Upgrades include different engines, intake/exhaust, wheels, N2O, and more that will add horsepower and performance to your vehicle. These upgrades will help you gain an advantage over your opponents and increase your chances for victory.
What makes this Android game truly addicting is the fact that the gameplay is not predictable in the least. Each car has different advantages and certain strategies must be discovered and fine-tuned to get the most out of your car.
