If a race’s difficulty level appears to be in the blue, then that means it will be massively easy to beat. If it’s in the green, it will still be fairly easy to beat. If it’s in the orange, it’s going to be difficult but it is most likely beatable. However, if it is in the red with all four bars filled, then that means that it’s going to be almost impossible to beat.
The only time that this is not true is for the half-mile races in the very beginning. You’re going to start off at an inherent disadvantage at these until you unlock transmission tuning, which happens at upgrade level four. Once you do, go to the tuning area and stretch out your gear ratios. The longer the gear ratios, the better you’ll do in the last half of the half-mile, and the longer that you can increase your speed for before you run out of steam.
As you open more and more bronze boxes in the rare imports area, you will come across rare and uncommon car parts, but many of them won’t be for cars in your tier. Parts can be sold for money, and some, such as parts for the Dodge Viper ACR, will earn you a large quantity of money, so sell them unless you really want to keep them around for later.
The first four stages of an upgrade will arrive instantly. The fifth stage of an upgrade is an imported part, and will take some time to show up – anywhere between 20 minutes and an hour depending on the part. The stage 6 upgrade, which is far rarer, can be found under rare imports and in special races for prizes.
Connect the game to Facebook in order to earn quick bonuses. You can share gas pips with your friends when you link up to Facebook, as long as they play the game as well, and if they don’t, then look for people to add in the comments section of this page or the review pages of the App Store or Google Play. Or invite your friends who play the first CSR. Plus you can race against your friends for money and prizes, and earn free cash.
If you plan to spend money on in-app purchases, then hit the offers page before you spend ANYTHING so you can see what the latest offers are. Offers will typically include cash, keys and gold all bundled together, for a much lower price than what each one of them would be individually, and new offers are swapped in and out frequently.
