Sounds good, the only thing that is missing is the online multiplayer. And I would like to know what time I need to get 3 stars..

They are only in multiplayer and secret tracks. In multiplayer you can de-activate all or some of them.

It's an arcade, not a simulator

Weapons and new coming "drift-to-charge-nitro" car sounds like Mario Kart.

You are talking about iPad, right?

Maybe you do not agree with that explanation, right?

yes i don't agree with it, like most of the others I think it's way better to know what time we need to get 3 stars.

it find this pretty much like rc-racing... you have to practice and be consistent, but your effort is rewarded (times are getting better and better)

Just a quick suggestion to the devs. It would be great if the three start objectives were better defines before starting a race. It sucks to finish a race looking for three stars, and then be told I needed to use a different car. Also, I feel it is too tough to get three stars on some levels even with a fully upgraded car (white car, first level pack). I think this couls use some tweaking for a completionist like me, where either the cars are mid just a bit faster, or you can use any car to three star a level. Great game and looking forward to some updates.

Loving the new racing types in the single player campaign. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite top-down racers.

I know not everyone likes power-ups, but it would be cool to be able to turn them on in single player as well....for added re-playability.

Oh, and I do agree that it would be nice if we were told what times are required to get three-stars on all levels.

I don't think it is a good idea to know the 3 star times in advance.
It's part of the rules. Just as that you have to use a certain car.
And I do like the idea that the 3 star times are not fixed.

I don't like these elimination races and the powerups. They should focus on racing.

New drift-to-charge-nitro car is avaiable in single player (so you have atleast nitro), and all power-ups are present in "Secret" tracks.

I see another problem: Game Center score. I have 2 questions:
1. Have GC scores same rules as 3 stars? In example, is Tropical score valid only if I use 1st car?
2. I ran with the "wrong" car in several Tropical tracks. Now the partial and totals times are compared with those obtained with that wrong car, so I do not know if I'm getting better or worse time with the right car.

I agree with @injuwarrior: objectives were better defines before starting a race. Even if you do not want to show time to get 3 stars (I may agree), atleast tell which car to use to get 3 stars and valid Game Center score. What do you think about?

I'm very disappointed for multiplayer because:
1. There is still not online;
2. Often is out of sync (blutooth mode) so cars do not start together, very close cars catch the same power-up, mines often are hidden and so on;
3. New drift-to-charge-nitro car does NOT have nitro at all;
4. Audio goes on and off;
5. Sometimes it crashes.

Some bugs not multiplayer related:

1. In race 3-18 a car exploded even it's not a destrucion race;
2. 1-8 and 1-17 races have a graphical bug (see below image) on a iPhone 4 iOS 6 no JB. Same races have no bug on an iPhone 4S iOS 5.1.1 no JB. Aside that, what does it mean that new colour for both of tracks?
