Hey, Racers!
A brand-new update is charging your way, with fresh festivals and new challenges to enjoy!

THE LUNAR FESTIVAL
Celebrate the Year of the Ox by plowing full-speed ahead in the gorgeous new BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Special Edition! And there's plenty more in store, so be sure to keep an eye out for other exciting prizes and surprises before this party's over.

NEW MODE: SPEED TRIALS
Looking for instant multiplayer action? Then look no further than Speed Trials! You'll jump inside a random race car and go head-to-head with other players. It's the fastest way to try out new cars. No upgrades, no planning, just a pure test of skill!

REBALANCED RIDES
The following cars have had their MAX-PRO stats tuned to improve the balance of multiplayer competition.
•         BMW M3 Sedan
•         Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG (Switched from C to D Class)
•         Acura NSX 2005 (Switched from C to D Class)
•         Honda Civic Type-R (Switched from C to D Class)
•         Honda S2000
•         BMW M1 (Switched from C to D Class)
•         Chevrolet Corvette C3 (Switched from A to D Class; Becomes Ultimate)
•         Infiniti FX50 (Switched from C to D Class)

The base stats of the above-mentioned cars will remain the same. Those that have had their class changed will also have their purchase price and upgrade costs reduced to match their new classification.

SELLING CARDS
Festival Kit Cards and Wild Cards will grant fewer Fusion Coins when sold.

LOTS MORE SLOTS
•         New players will now start with 100 more inventory slots than players had been given in the past.
•         All current players will be granted 100 additional inventory slots upon the update’s release.

WTF  The corvette C3 getting stomped from A to d class ! That's absurd & the largest drop I've ever seen any car take !  
I hear some speculation about the garage being messed with , A reworked garage ? True or False ?   
Fewer fucs for wild & kit cards , How much fewer ?  I got like 200 kit cards in my inventory !  They taking again people , take & take 
They gonna try & jack me for mines , Oh hell no

Upgrade went smoothly. C3 Ultimate down in D class now. Will add to the variety with the Furai. Plus a bunch of cars have been moved down to that rank. Changes for the cars @fkw123 listed: Civic Type-R 1230, S2000 1230, NSX 1230, C3 1229, Infiniti FX50 1229, SLK 55 AMG 1229, M1 1228, M3 Sedan 1228.

SPEED TRIALS shows up where the shop used to be on the home screen. You have to click on one of the currencies at the top of the home screen to get into the shop.

100 extra storage slots added. Confirmed.

Haven’t noticed anything missing or any other changes.

Have not tried the Speed Trials yet. C3 works fine in MP. Seems similar to Furai. Though, my first and only race was against other C3’s. Everyone is trying it out...
Car I most want added to A8:
       1991 MAZDA 787B

In regards to the Car ranks compensation, here's the answer I got.


Cars switching actually made the cars to be more competitive comparing to their previous spots in the ranks curve, plus their upgrading prices reduced within new class. So no additional compensation is expected.
