4. Drag Racing Free

The most addictive racing game with over 20 million players is finally available on your iPhone and iPad!

– Drive 50+ cars including the hot new 1200 bhp Hennessey Venom GT™
– Buy performance upgrades, tune and customize your car
– Challenge other racers online! Race 1 on 1, drive your opponent’s car, or participate in 10-player races in Pro League

!!! Please do not TUNE your cars until the update! We’ll release a fix in a couple days.

TIPS:
1. Racing
– Launch and shift when the dashboard indicator turns blue or green
– If there is too much wheelspin, you are not going anywhere – watch the orange indicator on your dashboard
– Once you learn how to drive properly, ignore the hints and find your own winning strategy
– Nitrous is more effective on underpowered cars with lots of grip. Timing is crucial!

2. Cars and upgrades
– Test drive before you buy a car!
– The more your car costs, the tougher opposition you’ll face both offline and online
– Upgrades count towards increasing car cost/level, while tuning doesn’t
– Keep your car cost just under your level cap to get an advantage
– Adjusting gear ratios (Garage -> Upgrade -> Tune) is costly, but lets you achieve times that are impossible on stock settings

3. Game modes and winnings
– Race against beginner/amateur AI to get some quick cash and build your car
– Defeat bosses and unlock achievements for extra RP
– Go online and race against others to earn maximum cash/RP
– If your car isn’t ready for online races, earn some cash in “Drivers Battle”
– For the ultimate challenge, race against top players in Pro League

4. Misc
– Join facebook.com/DragRacingGame for news and strategy
– Try playing with vibration on (enable it in the “Settings” menu)!

Coming soon:
– Friend races: add friends by their ID and challenge them directly
– World records: race against current record holders
– Rim paint and more features!

*********
This is the free & full version of the game with all features and content available, no upgrade required. However, you can disable ads and purchase extra points using in-game options.
