Over the course of the last five years, Racing Rivals has grown into one of the most hardcore racing games in the world. This loyal community has spent countless hours competing in millions of races in “winner take all” fashion – all in the name of Turf Wars and pink slips.

However, all good things must come to an end… After spending time evaluating Rivals and its future – we’ve decided that it’s time to move on. Simply put, the revenue generated from Racing Rivals unfortunately no longer covers the cost of operations. This was not an easy decision to make.

On March 31st, 2019 – Rivals will be racing off into the sunset, and will be permanently shut down. Current players have until this date to utilize any accumulated virtual currency. We’ll be offering some massive reductions in the cost of crates, installs and repairs in addition to a reduction on timers as you race your way into the history books. Effective immediately, no new in-app purchases will be permitted.

In closing, a resounding and sincere THANK YOU to our extremely driven fans for your loyalty and dedication over the years – we hope you’ve enjoyed playing Racing Rivals as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.

Axle/Drive shaft what does it do?

I have never installed this part in any of my cars cause i don't see any good reason to do so. It only adds weight and it does reduce engine stress that is the only good thing but extra weight is making the car slower or there is something i don't know about?

    It's useful for turf tunes if you want less stress. Less stress equals more races before repair, but if you're maxing a car just ignore it.

    You leave it off in all max tunes. Turf tunes sometimes you overshoot a lobby and by adding stage 1 axel you just may jump back down into the appropriate lobby because you just added a pound or so. I def have a few awesome turf tunes that use it including a world record tune
