The Changes – Coming in a Patch

  • Improved quality of cards from targeted rolls in the Tune-up Shops.
  • Increased the level on parts awarded from winning events.
  • Multiple fixes to Improve stability.

Racers should see a noticeable improvement in terms of being able to upgrade multiple cars. There’s a decrease time for parts within the tune-up shops to refresh, which has been decreased from 30 minutes to 10 minutes.

There’s also been changes to the way events, bait crates and roaming racers work. Completing any of these tasks will now grant you more in-game bank as well as more REP. The increase in winnings will allow you to purchase more cars, as well as parts. The increase in REP will have a side effect of awarding you more shipments, which in turn will lead to more bank, more part tokens and more vanity items.

Players in Ranked Speedlists will also notice an increased amount of parts being paid out. Win the Speedlist and you’re guaranteed a new part. We’ve also increased the frequency in which they are rewarded for simply playing in Speedlists.

If you notice anything else tweaked that’s not in the actual notes, let us know in the comments.
