REVISED CAR RATINGS

Car ratings now reflect performance potential more accurately. That means better matchmaking in multiplayer modes and a clearer understanding of each upgrade's effect.

Based on your feedback, we've streamlined the UI, putting single-player modes front and center, and giving multiplayer modes their own section.

RETRY RACE

By popular demand, there is now a "Retry" icon you can select after any lost single-player race.
