2. More EDGE = more wins.

Races are fair and equal – but EDGE gives a secret advantage.  The car with most EDGE is fastest, so make sure that’s you by starting races with at least a couple of upgrades fitted.

3. Deliver Upgrades in advance.  

Buy an upgrade before closing the game.  It will deliver while you’re away and be ready to fit when you return: boom, instant EDGE.  Super keen? When you get a notification your upgrade has been delivered, return to the game and buy the next one.

4. Fit Upgrades at the best time.

Everyone’s EDGE advantage resets when the track changes.  Fit Upgrades when the track changes to keep your EDGE for longer. And don’t fit an Upgrade just before it changes!

5. Get free cars.  

Play the Main Event every day and collect Blueprints from the Event Goals, and before long you’ll have collected your first Class B car without dropping any Gold.  And you can drive that car in the weekend Qualifiers!

6. Practise Perfect Exits.  

Keep the drift needle low in the blue as you approach the end of the corner, then hold the gas so you cross the yellow exit line before the needle reaches the red.  It takes practise, but will really improve your race times.

7. Grab ALL THE GOLD.  

Enter all the Events you can. You don’t need to finish top of your Leaderboard to earn Gold – just finish a few races to be in a prize tier. Plus, finishing races completes Event Goals and gives you more prizes.  And check in every hour for a Bronze Key that could give you free Gold.

8.Have extra cars.  

EDGE is very cheap on new cars, and more EDGE means more wins.  Also, you can prepare Upgrades on a second car while you’re racing your first, or use one while another is being serviced.  Finally, every weekday there’s an Event requiring a certain Class C car, so the more you can enter, the more Gold you can collect each day.

9. Share the coolness.

Under the Camera icon you can live stream via services like Mobcrush and Periscope (on recent iOS devices), record video of your best races, or take cool studio photos of your exclusive prize cars to share online.  OK, it won’t help you win, but it will let you brag when you do.
