If anybody liked CSR Racing or Fast and Furius 6, this blows them and all drag racing games away! So many upgrades and attention to detail and the biggest thing..........LIVE multiplayer racing. You can make bets with other people and even race for pink slips. It's a freemium game, so it does come with the usual F2P stuff, but it's still a great game. Highly recommended.

FYI, not compatible with iPods, just tried to download it on my gen 5 touch.. No can do, it requires a digital compass. (It obviously doesn't list iPods as compatible in the description, I was just curious).

Same here. I was surprised at how deep the upgrading system was.

This is a very challenging game, much more difficult than CSR and every other drag racer I've tried. Seems I'm gonna have to grind some until I have enough $ to upgrade more so I can beat the first campaign. I'm stuck on the fourth race. Not sure if I made good or bad choices on the upgrades I've already performed

I'm stuck on the 4th or 5th race. The only way of getting money is to grind on multiplayer, but I'm averaging like one win out of 5 right now. There are some good racers out there.......or people that are sinking real money into upgrading.

That's why freemium and multiplayer dont usually work well coz of the possibility of pay-to-wins... Especially when upgrades are involved.

As fast as some of them are I'm willing to bet they have a bigger paycheck than mine. I would never waste real $ to make my car faster when I can get it by playing longer and grinding.

That's kinda how I feel. I've already seen players with cars that cost upwards to 10 bucks in "gems". I'm happy with upgrading my free car. I'm noticing more and more cool stuff with this game though, the more I play it. The chat room overlapping the spectator view is pretty cool and the fact that you can race for pink slips. I can already see people losing a car they spent 20 bucks on because they fouled off the starting line being fun to watch.
