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.

Engine swap option in the upgrade menu

Hey guys, Huge fan of the game , But the game would be better with an engine swap upgrade in the menus, Like say I have a corvette and a viper srt and I wanna swap their engines the viper would be in the corvette and the corvette in the viper. I think it would really Benefit the player increase and game downloads. Thanks

    It would be cool but not balanced cause I could race someone in the same car for example crx vs crx I could have the original engine while they can have an evo in it

    I have played a game like this back in the early 2000's and it was a hit because of that feature. I agree with Wheeli

    There were discussions of this before. They were thinking there would be a way to tell what class engine a car had by some colour system.

    I think drive train swaps could be useful for terf but make it balanced by adding weight if you covert fwd/rwd to awd and maybe reducing traction if changing an awd car to fwd/rwd and if rwd to fwd just figure out a way yourself to balance that
    I went outside once... it was aweful
