Showdown is A FREAKING JOKE!!! 
This mode probably was invented by someone during his stay in psychiatric clinic.

I will explain.
GL developers had that code, from A9, to make cars flash in various ways and colors and they thought: why don't we reuse this code in A8 so that, little by little we make A8 very similar to A9, just to annoy to death those bastards that refuse to move to A9? But they had to have some idea on how to use these silly effects then after some brainstorming with some kindergarten kids, they all came up with the Shutdown mode.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Would you mind getting steadily frustrated, trolled and annoyed even if you spend $? Are you having that feeling of being tricked and devalued? No worries! Welcome to the Gameloft world!  ;D

It's definitely NOT racing.  It's mayhem ,  anarchy ,  destruction , its not racing it's riding  ! Trying to destroy other racers isnt racing !
they have A9 , A8 , AX , A street storm or whatever. They could have created a whole new Asphalt Anarchy ! Might do well some peps get their kicks destroying & wrecking  other peps . But this ain't RACING

Showdown mode can be fun, at least for a while, once you get the hang of it. I'd never want to use it for ratings, unless it was a Showdown-only rating.

Now that GL has completed the rebalancing, I can certainly say that the attempt to make MP results be based on skill rather than on a car has definitely failed. Disparities are not as large, but it doesn't take much of a difference to cinch the win. The remaining disparities are more than just minor. So my grade for GL's attempt: D.  If GL thinks they are done equalizing the cars, then that reveals that none of them actually play the game, but just look at code and numbers.  Sigh ...

One thing that has shown up for me is those "lost" bike upgrades that I earned in Moto Blitz AFTER taking the bikes to MAX +PRO in order to win them.  Apparently you can now fuse them for points (750-1500, depending on classs).

I opened 94x 1 Class B Part boxes today and got (wait for it):

Suspension - 41
Tires - 51
Exhaust - 1
Drivetrain - 0


IS THIS SOME KIND OF A JOKE?!?!
