GTRacer, it is an endless game.
There is also no static "goal", you can decide yourself what to be a master in. Such as Drag racing, Circuit racing, car meetings, starting up a business, you name it!
How can I make money? (top)There are several ways to make money. They are explained here.
Drag races against the computer(top)For beginners, the best way to start is to get a cheap, but good quality car. Tune it a little bit so it will raise a class or 2, so from F to D.
For example, get a Suzuki Swift GTI (D253 by default) and tune it with a chip to a C class car (C320 for example).
Then, drag race against the computer. If you race against a D class computer racer, you can easily win each time. You can earn up to 500 euro each time. 3 Computer races every hour: Profit!
You can only race a car 2 classes higher/lower than your own car. So if you have a C-class car you can race E-A classes, and with an D-class car you can take F-B class competitors.
HP and Weight are important, torque and Handling are not, so keeping this as low as possible is advised.
Car value is based on several things. If you buy a worn car, and you repair it, fit new street tires, wash it, maybe repair the body work as well, the Car value will go up a lot. After you are done, you can sell the car to the dealer by parking your car in the Car lot and click the Sell car option to get money.
You can buy up to 10 Cars a day, so quite easy to gain money!
Other ways(top)There are plenty of other ways of making money, such as winning drag races against users or competing in Circuit races. These ways will explain themselves eventually if you play the game.
Garage, then go to the car, click the 'Repair options' tab and click 'Repair car'.
If that is not possible, you can try using a Revision kit. To use a Revision kit, visit your Part storage (hover the Garage button), and look in your Garage for a Revision kit. Revision kits can be bought at Dealerships, or at the part shop Revision Revolution.
The last option is to restorate your car. This costs a lot (takes a lot of time, 4 mechanics working on it, and 2 revision kits), but the car will get restorated to 100 %.
How can I become an Administrator? (top)Simple. You can't.
I want to start over! How do I reset my account? (top)If you open a thread at the GTRacer Administration forum with this request, the Staff of GTRacer will reset you as soon as possible. Try to learn from your mistakes!
Please raise the amount of Computer races! (top)Computer races were meant for some action during times that no-one was online. (Wow, long time ago )
Computer races are not the "core" of GTRacer, so we won't raise the amount of available Computer races.
I achieved a reaction time under 0.10 but I did not get the achievement :( (top)
Only finished User Races (so not Computer races!) will get you an achievement. Furthermore, the achievement processor has to run. It runs every night at 00:30 AM, and during the day at 12:30PM.
Good. Please post a detailed feature request topic at the Feature Requests forum.
I got an error during a user drag race :( Please fix it! (top)
Sometimes a user race gives an error. I still do not know why, and I can't fix it yet. Please try to live with it.
In the meantime you can logout and login again, then it will be fixed.
Missions are not supposed to be easy. That way every user would reach to Mission 9 in 2 days. We didn't meant it that way.
This means no, we won't add more Cars to help you with the Mission.
Lotus Elan M100 was the only FWD Lotus in history.
But if you find a bug like that then it would be appreciated if you report it.
