CSR Racing iPhone game guide: cheats, tips, tricks, hints and strategies

CSR Racing is a brand new smash hit street racing game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This is the only one of its kind in which you get to race real cars, such as the Mini Cooper JCW all the way to the Audi R8, and everything in between. Read on for some tips and tricks for CSR Racing!

If you run out of fuel, instead of buying more fuel using your precious gold or waiting forever for the chance to be able tor race again, simply go to your phone or device’s settings, go to general, go to date and time, and then set the device ahead. Set it ahead by any amount of time you want – 1 hour is usually good to get back a decent amount of fuel. Once you do this, go back to the game and your fuel will be restored. This trick also works for getting imported upgrades delivered faster for your car (except in the case of those, simply set the phone ahead by a few minutes).

If you are unhappy with the way a race is going to turn out, because you already know you are going to lose, then do the following. First, hit the pause button on the race. Then, use the menu button to click out of the game. Hit the menu button twice to bring up the list of active apps on your iPhone once you get to the menu. Now, close out the app. Re-open CSR Racing and when it opens back up, you will have your spent fuel back and the race will be as if it never happened.

Also, every so often when you do the above trick, you will get all of the fuel back that you have spent since you opened the app last. However, this seems to only occur randomly.

When you beat the boss of a crew, and they challenge you to race for their car (they win your gold if you lose, or you win their car if you win), take that bet, but if you are going to lose, do the above trick where you close the app mid-race, and then re-open it. You won’t have the option to take that challenge again, but you will have kept all of your gold.
