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.

What's the purpose of a "turf tuned" car?

I know it has something to do with the turf wars and team competitions, but I've never been on a team, so Im just curious. Is it to intentionally de-tune a car so it qualifies for a race? Are there power brackets you try to not exceed?

    You set up your car so that it will be max for a certain lobby.

    Say you have a dart, you would tune it to say 1639/1640 and when you go in turf wars you would be in 1640 lobbies and you tune it the best of its abilities in that lobby.

    ^ OK thanks, that makes sense. Outta curiosity, how are the lobbies divided? I know now it's by rating, but is there a spread, like 1631-1640... that kinda thing.

    Beware some sell "turf tuned" cars and they are some weak tune that won't put you in a lobby where you're maxed.

    gocha! Im not too worried about that though, I would prefer to tune my own cars anyways... at least when tuning for max, it's just math.

    Is that a reason why people keep multiples of the same car? So you don't have to keep retuning the same one?
