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.

Adding a new brand to Racing Rivals

    Oddly, 3 of the 5 cars you posted aubassplayer are in the game already. The blower charger, boss 429, and boss with the blower are in the game. Personally I'd like to see Roush featured in the game, but...I know that won't happen. The only game I've ever seen anything Roush related in - was Forza 4 on Xbox 360. Oddly, it was only a Roush body kit that you could put on a Shelby GT 500...which is even more perplexing as Roush has never made a body kit for a Shelby car (they are competitors).

    Check out roushperformance.com. Several variations of Mustangs, F150's, and Focus's that they've done.

    @Roush Sport I just posted those as cars with personality. Would like to see a true Roush stang in game also. Just think the game if full if rice boxes that are overpowered in game already . Don't think we need more.. just my opinion..

    I look at it this way - this game is designed to appeal to a broad base of players. Of those, naturally, some will have a preference of muscle cars, imports, etc. Some have even requested Pro Mod and Dragsters.

    I personally am the type of person that respects all cars that someone has taken the time to build properly. Now, there are those that go to their local auto parts store, buy an oversized muffler, bolt it on, and think they are the next Domenic Toretto. I'm not a fan of those guys. Conversely, I've seen guys with Civics that push several hundred horsepower, Mustangs with close to 1000 hp (and some way over that). I appreciate the time, money, energy, etc it takes to build those cars, even if I don't particularly like said car. It's more of a respect thing really. Take the time and build your car properly and I'll have respect for that, regardless of if it's American Muscle, Import, etc.

    As far as the game is right now - I think there is a pretty diverse selection of cars, and there's enough of each to keep most happy. Just my opinion.

    @Roush Sport I agree. I respect those who build whatever car they choose. I agree with you on the F&F bunch. But I also contend this is a drag racing game. And their are way to many ricer cars that they have made unrealistically fast in game and too many super cars that would get drug at the strip. Top speed, yes they would win but not in 1/4 mile. And yes I understand it's a game to appeal to multiple kinds of car people.. but in my opinion there are enough ricers that we don't need whole nother brand...
