Tips for Good Racing

It's a good idea NOT to join a race when your ping is above 200. Also your quality needs to be atleast 70 in order to be somewhat warp free. Anything less and your experience will be dissapointing and frustrating.

PASSWORD PROTECT YOUR RACES! Let only those you want in know the password. There are just too many folks that are just interested in seeing how many cars they can take out.

If you're on a modem, try to limit your connect speed to atleast 38000 KBPS. The higher the connection, the more unstable the connection is.
