Bugs / Glitches

  • Fusion error: Fusing pro kit cards no longer increases the fusion points in fusing boxes. This was fixed shortly after.
  • Graphics setting error: Players were set to low or high graphic settings automatically after updating.
  • Blurry graphics: Several items are reported to now be shown in a blurred manner. The only solution is to set the visual quality in "Medium"

    The rendering of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition and of the trees as affected by the blurry graphics issue.

  • Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition Elite tuning and Condition issue: Some players have reported that the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition's Elite tuning feature momentarily disappears. The condition bar has also been reported to not be deducted even after several races have been completed.
  • Honda Civic Type-R Blueprints: Despite the blueprint's rarity now changed to Rare, the blueprint still gives 3,000 fusion points instead of 9,000 points for a rare blueprint card. This was fixed prior to the update's release on Windows.
  • Abnormally high number of Huracan blueprints in Moto Blitz: As of this update, Moto Blitz awards a total of 172 Blueprints for Lamborghini Huracan, which is excessive, considering it needs 145 Blueprints to be built.
    • However, considering the Aprilia Tuono V4 RR being delayed due to a licensing problem between Gameloft and Aprilia, the excessive Blueprint count might be intentional to compensate.
      • While the licensing problem has been resolved partially, the excessive blueprint count has yet to be corrected.
  • No World Tour Events on Windows: The first vehicle event for Windows players is the R8 e-tron SE's R&D as opposed to mobile players, who got the BMW M2 SE's World Tour before the e-tron SE's R&D.
    • The event was added later that day.
  • World Tour Streaming Pass refill glitch: If the game is re-entered for more than the time taken to refill one Streaming Pass, the countdown to the next Streaming Pass will only begin when the game is restarted (Eg if the player re-enters the game three hours after spending all Streaming Passes, the timer to refill the second out of three Streaming Passes will be displayed as 2h 30 min left instead of 2h left). The only solution to the glitch is to enter the game just before the next Streaming Pass is given.
  • 95% off Corvette C3: For a few hours on February 21, 2018 many players were able to purchase the C3 for a heavily discounted price of Tokens 300. The discounted price was later corrected to Tokens 3,000.
    • For users with the new price changes after November 13, 2017, the glitch never appeared.
  • Tuning Button issue: Players on the Android platform are still experiencing issues with the Tuning Button. It still causes the game to freeze and force-close when pressed.
  • Yamaha YZF-R6 Handling Error: The front wheel of the Yamaha YZF-R6 is known to lift off from the ground momentarily but not counted as a wheelie when the player activates a Level 3 nitro or Supercharged nitro, causing the bike to be very difficult to turn. A partial solution to this is to activate Level 3/Perfect Nitro or Supercharged Nitro when the player is turning the bike.
  • Unbuildable FZ-10: If the player has obtained all blueprints for the Yamaha FZ-10 from elsewhere or completing its EDD, the bike disappears from the garage.
    • The error was fixed on March 23, 2018, the same date when the price changes occurred for all accounts.

The following bugs/glitches have been fixed:

  • Android "Empty Data" Update
  • Bike Physics
  • Motorcycles knockdown glitch
  • Fusion error
  • Honda Civic Type R Blueprints where the fusion points worth 3,000 points instead of 9,000 points for the rare blueprint card.
  • Holding down any mouse button will no longer register erroneous clicks in Windows.
