Bugs and Glitches

  • Unresponsive Controller: Players have reported that using a controller would cause the car to steer in a single direction even if no input was given. A temporary fix to this is to set the steering sensitivity to 100%.
    • This was fixed on Windows with a hotfix.
  • Missing Space in Goal Text: In "Beat [time] with [car]" goals, a space is missing after the word "with", resulting in the goal text being rendered as "Beat [time] with[car]" instead.
  • Invisible Track: On some devices, it is possible for a track to become invisible with only the cars and some props being visible.


  • In the first few hours of the update's release, a Lego® Technic™ McLaren Senna GTR could be seen in the garage as a Class A car. It was made hidden until its relase in the Electric Season Update.
  • In the about section of the options menu, the license for the RAESR Tachyon Speed can be seen.
    • That car would later be added in the next update.
