CSR 2: Game Mechanics
CSR 2 is a drag race game. That means no insane curves, no shortcuts, no acrobatics, and no cars hitting each other in a Hollywood-movie fashion. Maneuver skills are irrelevant here. Drag races are made in straight lines. They are like car sprints: it is just two riders and their machines.
Your advantages do not come from your driving skills. You win the race by pumping gas, changing the transmission, and, more important, upgrading your vehicle so it can perform better than your competitor’s.
Well, for short, this game is a competition on car tuning. At least as long as it concerns playing against others. The only way you can progress and win more difficult races are by upgrading your engine, tires, installing nitro, among others features.
The drag race gameplay is perfect for short matches. The ¼ miles race, for instance, takes less than 15 seconds. CSR 2 is suited for people who like to spend more time planning which upgrade to buy, which tuning combination to use, and which new car to add in the garage, than to spend time actually racing.
In CSR 2, the race is where your efforts (or maybe you’re tuning strategy) prove itself. To beat top players and crews, you need to spend much time understanding the car mechanics and verifying your car statistics to ensure it is enough to win races at events, for instance.
There are different kinds of races in CSR 2. Each kind rewards you better prizes. One exemple are the Ladder races. In this modality, you race against progressively tougher opponents and more valuable prizes. The more you keep winning in a row, the more money you get.
Progressing in the CSR 2
Playing CSR 2, you will have different ways to progress. The game offers several rewards depending on your activities. Like any other mobile game of these days, there are daily prizes only for opening the app. Fulfilling daily goals (whose menu you will find sliding from the left side of your garage’s screen) is also a great way to earn money to upgrade and buy cars.
The game has two currencies, and both can be purchased in-app with actual money. It is completely possible to enjoy CSR 2 without opening your wallet, although paying for game cash will make you progress faster and acquire more famous and even legendary cars.
You will note you will be ranked by your experience in the game. The more you race, the higher you will rank. Higher ranks means you will have access to different perks, races, and locations in the city.
Buying new Cars on CSR 2
In CSR 2, cars are categorized in 5 Tiers. You will automatically gain a car from the first one. Among those, you will find assets like the Toyota 86, Mustang Boss 302, and the Ford Fiesta ST. Whenever you have the change, buy a better car to compete in higher ranked races.
Tier 2 already features vehicles such as the Honda Civic Type R and sports cars like the Alpine A110. It also includes the Legend car Mercedes Benz 300 SL Coupe (which needs to be unblocked first, more on that below). Tier 2 cars cost from 70,000 app money.
In Tier 3 and 4, we start to see more interesting assets and insane cars. However, it is in Tier 5 that we find the fastest, most renowned, and luxurious car available in CSR 2.
You will note that not every race can be played in Tier 1 cars. Different races, and even different events, require you to use more advanced cars. In each event, you can check the list or required vehicles.
If you do not have any of them, you directly buy from the Dealership menu. No money? Too bad, go make some racing lesser opponents until you are ready for the top events.

Earning respect and Joining a crew
Joining a crew will allow you to compete in global crew events, racing the top players in the world to earn special rewards and respect for your crew. In those events, you often are awarded with special parts and most valuable prizes, so keep an eye out.
Upgrading and tuning your vehicles will allow you to race actual and fictional crews across the city.

Do your best, bring respect to your crew, and you will soon be racing in the streets with your Ferrari.

You can connect your Facebook account to CSR 2 to invite your friends to play, and even to the same crew you are part of. If you know someone as crazy about cars as you are, tell them about CSR 2! It is going to add a nice layer of competition to the game when you both start to benchmark your progress with each other.
Upgrading your vehicles
You can upgrade your cars either by buying more advanced parts or by optimizing its performance, enhancing the nitro, the final transmission, and tire pressures. However, before tuning your car, it must fit in some upgrade requirements.
In CSR 2, you can upgrade the following parts of your vehicles: Engine, Turbo, Intake, Nitrous, Body, Tires, and Transmission. Each part can be upgraded five times, and some of them will enable you to tune your car. For instance, you can tune Tire pressure after reaching the level 3 on Tires.
The upgrade is made by buying a special part to improve your vehicle performance. For instance, you can install light weight titanium in your car’s body, apply bottle warmers to improve the nitro performance, gear up enlarged turbines in your turbo system, and many more.
Each new upgrade or part applies some numeric effect in the four main stats of your car. They are Power, Grip, Shift Time and Weight. As you can imagine, the more you upgrade the body of your car, the more it will lose weight and will improve its acceleration. You can get more Power improving Engine, Turbo, Intake and Nitro.
Transmission will generally improve your Shift Time, which is vital to increase your 0/100mph performance. The less shift time you have, the more difficult it will be to get Perfect Shifts on races. Pay attention to that every time you upgrade your transmissions.
Using Fusion parts is a good way to make your car stand out and win more races. Each time you fuse a part, your Evo points climb up. You will note that some upgrades come with a fusion slot: click on it to be taken to the fusion screen and apply a fusion art (if you have some).
Fusing parts will make your vehicle improve its performance more quickly. To get the best fusing parts, participate in special events and beat tougher racers.
Another thing you can do is to buy specific cars only to strip them for their parts, if you have the cash. Parts can only be applied to Notice that you have to strip the car from the same manufacturer of the car you want to upgrade.
In your Garage, click on the info button and, then, click on Manage Parts to set the fusion parts. To apply one, in the upgrade section, click on Fit Part to choose among the available parts to implement in your desired vehicle.
The feeling of an improved car
As you upgrade your car, you will feel the difference in the game play. It is truly amazing how CSR 2 successfully provides this kind of experience. The camera will give you the feel of the speed, you will have to change transmission quicker and quicker, you will have less time to decide to hit the nitro button.
Sooner or later, you will notice that driving top machines also demands top racers. You have to be quick on your fingers if you want to make your way up in the world-wide leaderboards.
Finally, do not forget about your style. In CSR 2, customization is free. The game simulates a world-class car configurator. You can choose from a wide range of paint, rims, brake calipers, and interior trims. You can even customize your license plates to give more personality to your favourite cars.
Tuning your car on CSR 2
The tuning workshop on CSR 2 allows you to set three different aspects of your car’s performance: Nitrous Oxide, Final Transmission, and Tire Pressure. At the rank 30, you get access to Presets, allowing you to choose custom settings instead of manually testing each one to find the best for your car.
After each change you make in the tuning workshop, you can validate your choice in Test Run and compare it to the latest. If you do not understand in which aspects the tuning will impact your performance, test as many times it takes to give you a hint.
You can easily access the impacts of your running choices in the performance indicators table after each test run. If you tested the car on a ¼ mile run, some will not be available (like the 0-100mph performance). To get the full report, test your car on also ½ mile runs.
In order to give you some hint on the effects of each tuning, we will share our screenshots when we were testing our Tier 1 Toyota 86 to find the best tuning settings. We will show extreme cases of each side of the trade-off and the comparative table shown at the end of each test run.
Check it out!
The nitro tuning allows you to set the power and duration of your boost. In the nitrous oxide screen, the turning means to slide a point through a bar, facing a trade-off between BHP and duration in seconds.
The more to the left, the higher your car’s BHP. The more to the right, the nitrous least fewer seconds. For short, the trade-off you face is whether you prefer a more lasting nitrous effect (more to the left) or a more intense (more to the right).
The more it least, the less intense it is while it is running. However, if you prefer abrupt explosions of speed, set more to the right. This will surprise your competitors when you burst in speed and surpass them!
Tuning the final transmission means setting the optimal time for your car’s engine ratios. Similar to the nitrous, the trade-off you face in setting the final transmission is about the amount of time it will take to get your car to gain velocity versus its highest speed.
A high final transmission gives you more acceleration, meaning you will reach your top speed fast. As you lower this rate, however, your top speed increases because the engine will work harder (and longer) between each transmission.
Higher final transmissions are better in shorter races, because you have fewer time to reach your top performance and finish the sprint. On the other hand, Lower final transmission is optimal for longer races, in which your engines have to work harder and longer to sustain a higher maximum speed.
Slide a point in a clock-like barometer to set your Tire Pressure in PSI (pounds per square inch). The more clockwise you turn, the more grip you get in your car. The grip means your car is more stable, and it makes more profit from acceleration and its speed. More pressure means more grip.
The more counterclock your turn, the less grip you get, but the faster your car will be able to gain acceleration. Hence, the trade-off is whether you want quantity or quality of acceleration. More pressure means you will have more quality, and less means you get more quantity.
