Hi, I'm new to this forum (though not Touch Arcade-had it for Asphalt 8). I'm new to this game too. I'm no stranger to car games but its been a while since I've done something like a real-life simulation. I'm wondering if there are any strategies I should be aware of or pitfalls to avoid. Also I just got the (I think Tier 1?) Audi 1.8 (first/only Audi which is also pitted against a Volkswagon in a series) after finishing the Mito GTA- just got started and was wondering if even though the Audi started out with a little better stats (a little better grip, most other characteristics same as VW) would it end up having better stats than the VW after a few upgrades (stage 2-3). Are there certain ways to budget money/coins- I've been hoarding the green dollars and the coins seem awfully hard to get-payouts are meager 1-2k and the upgrades are forced and can cost 4k for beginning 2nd upgrades on the Audi...
I've finished Asphalt 8 2X (except for the insanely expensive new cars they added), ranked in leaderboards, and had fun unboosted in MP. I've gotten top prizes in CSR Racing multiplayer (The fast Pro T5's Koenigsegg Agera R, Camaro GT3, and Hennessey venom GT) and gotten all boss cars in CSR Classics (CSR is a really awesome drag racing game- Classics for Ol' cars and Racing for new beasts.) I've also finished most of Real Racing 3 at the 1.1.2 (a.k.a before EA slapped on a bunch of insanely expensive upgrades + cars and reduced payouts).
Thanks for any advice/input/warnings. BTW, I'm playing this on Windows 8.1 Laptop so no worry of lags or crashes.
