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.

Introducing the Fast & Furious!

Hey all!

This is something we've been working on for awhile and I'm happy to announce that we are partnering up with Fast & Furious to bring you a good amount of cars that have been featured in all EIGHT Fast & Furious including the newest movie in the franchise, The Fate of the Furious.

To celebrate that movie's release we begin with our first of many Fast & Furious mystery crates which feature Little Nobody's WRX Rally, The Challenger Demon, Letty's Stingray and Dom's Ice Charger!

There will also be a Racer Club soon, featuring more cars from The Fate of the Furious.

That's not all! Soon, you can be challenged by your favorite characters from the movies for Pink Slips! That's right, while in a multiplayer lobby, one of the characters from the movies might challenge you to a pink slip race! Beware though, these guys aren't noobs. They drive hard and fast and will absolutely take your car if you lose. Hell, maybe even Dom will challenge you to a race.

How long will this last? We're talking a good while, we have all movies to go through after all. So get ready to live life a quarter mile at a time and experience the challenge of the Fast & Furious!

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, and have almost 0 problems with the games performance. I do think this is gonna be fun, but also think that maybe make it easier for lower level players. Also have many problems with free gem offers, I've done about 300 gems worth and only have received about half of that. .Keep in mind I followed all of the requirements set

    Yes. The movie characters - you won't be able to challenge them. They will randomly challenge you.

    Haven't confirmed, however, If they are anything like the "regular" bots, their rating and time they run will be determined by what rating your car is. For example - have a friend grab a 1630 or below car and have them join a lobby. Typically those lower lobbies are empty and there are bots available. Once confirmed, join your friend in a 1668 car. Once there, race a bot....the bot will be rated much higher than 1630 (and the bots will have different cars on your screen versus your friends screen).

    soon.. ? is it on now..? or it will start in near future..?
  • patheticpathetic 805 PostsRegistered Users
    @Roush Sport can these bots ghost shift ? Lol
  • Roush SportRoush Sport 1,484 PostsRegistered Users, Moderators
    @pathetic Not saying yes, not saying no. Just make sure you are on your game and are willing to risk losing your car before accepting a pinks race.
  • patheticpathetic 805 PostsRegistered Users
    @Roush Sport you know me. I pink for a reason.
  • [RR] Ryyst[RR] Ryyst Administrator 3,814 PostsRegistered Users, Moderators
    The Fast and Furious drivers are different from regular bots. They will seek you out which means they'll challenge specific rated cars, so no you can't lobby jump to a lower lobby to try and beat a "lower" rated FF character. If you don't fit within their parameters you won't get challenged.

    So random challenges much like the dev's xb times. Very nice perk and a good job with the revamp of multiplayer.
  • aubassplayeraubassplayer Junior Member 2,725 PostsRegistered Users
    Will the challenge be straight to pinks? Cause right now if someone challenges me. I have to raise to pinks. But if I can't challenge them how does it go to pinks?

    They challenge you and you have two options. Chicken Out or Pinks.

    Hmm... y...es.

    The FF Drivers look for cars within specific parameters... so yes, if your car is tuned within those parameters you absolutely have a better chance at getting challenged. However, we ain't tellin' what those are!
