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.

    I didn't try to max it though I'm curious to see what it can do in max. I think it can max at 63 or 62. I'm not into gs but I managed to hit 9.09 in 56. Since I cannot check in jdm I will need to wait for some other official showdown or turf. I'm confused about the ratings of this car. The tune I hit the 9.09 was in 56...but when I rebooted game it was showing 57 and today it showed 54. It's not stable. That's why I asked why this car is not jdm eligible. I'm dying to check it out in an official race. I have three in all. Will try tunes for 50, 56 and max.


    I'm sure I can hit 8.9xx with more practice and that's for a B class car !!!

    Anyone knows why this car is not eligible for jdm events ? Is it a bug or ?

    This car is an evo8 beater by far.


    And that's without GS

    Technically speaking the Eclispe/Talon/Laser are not JDM but refered to as DSM's and where made in Ohio for the US market. Correct me if I am wrong as I also believe it was never available in Japan.

    @JohnKIV thanks. It makes sense. I thought about the possibility but the brand - Mitsubishi -
    was heavily saying JDM.

    It didn't let me race with it in the USA event in showdown neither... So it's not JDM eligible and neither USA. WTF is it eligible for than ???? @[rr]prodigal grim
