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.

Why you should NOT just go off of someone else's tune! Don't be lazy; build your own!

It's cool that a few mods have started giving out free tunes for certain cars. No shade against the mods, but what makes you, the player, so trustworthy of their tunes? How do you know their tune is the best tune, if you didn't do the math yourself? Do you really feel comfortable betting your car or betting 1-5mil on someone else's tune, not knowing if there is a better or worse tune out there?

In the race world, the only one you can trust is yourself, and the only one you can hold accountable for your loss is yourself. Same kinda goes for racing rivals; if you lose a bet because someone out there tuned their own car (using my tips, even,) better than the cookie cutter tune you just pulled off of a forum, how would you feel? You can't know if a tune is a good tune unless you go through the process yourself and build your car yourself. This is the ONLY way to be a true PRO at this game.

So if you wanna be pro..make your own tune. Don't be lazy, don't take the easy way out, don't bet your car/money on someone else's tune. Make your own!

    Ha I already do that on every car I make a new tune I don't write them down I'm just too lazy so I never have the same tuned car in my garage unless I won a few off someone.

    PM me if you seen any errors on one of my tunes. There is a possibility that I may have written the wrong Stage3/Pro part number which is why I usually try and write out the part name.

    I agree with shin completely. All my tunes i do the math for myself, look at the dyno chard, practice the shifts etc..., that's why i'm a good player. I also right down the tune I favor this way when i'm building alot of cars i can tune them quickly

    DJChris, I'm not saying your tunes are bad. I'm not saying their good. I'm saying that no one can trust another's tune UNLESS they verify it themselves by doing the math, and should just build their own car instead of copying someone else's and possibly having to redo major parts of it anyway.

    This is one topic I 100% agree with, so many people go on the "give me your tunes section" or the "tips and tricks section" to ask for tunes, you'll know the shinbeats guide is actually pretty accurate :D

    I build my own tunes, and it makes a difference. When it comes to the game, the real difference is that you have just a little dedication to the car. When you just put someone else's tune in, chances are you don't know the shift points, you probably can't launch, and don't ever practice with the car. So that being said, keep using others tunes and keep betting pinks, my garage is getting larger

    Couldn't be truer. If you're not going to put the work into it and would rather be lazy copying someone else's tune then you are setting yourself up for failure. Read my signature, it will back me up on this. ;) I don't put out horrible tunes for people to use but I also don't work on them very much so there's always a CHANCE that they are NOT THE BEST.

    Y'all still not making your own tunes I see. BUMP.

    I get personal satisfaction from my tunes kicking butt on the track. But that's just me. Lol

    I started today, actually :) and after reading your tips (not very thoroughly I might add), I've gotten great results :) Including my now 9.6 second RX-8. BUT...I did tune them backwards at first and wasted about $20k XD bwahahahaha. And since I changed some things around, I'm excited to see what my already 8.430 second NSX will bring to the table :)
