Pakhet’s Hidden Treasures

The Temple of Pakhet is more than just an excavation site in one of Egypt’s most famed—and dangerous—pyramids.  Having been abandoned for years by researchers due to the pyramid’s numerous booby traps, Pakhet’s treasures have remained untouched and its secrets undiscovered.  It was only a matter of time before the Dragons and Scorpions heard whispers of Pakhet’s myth and raced to see who could claim the forgotten treasure first.

Wrench’s Facts: Building the Ultimate Dusting Machine

While skill plays a major role in a racer’s success, every driver knows they cannot rely on a hunk of junk to win every time.  A car is more than a piece of metal on wheels—it is an extension of the driver.  The best racers put great effort into designing a car that meets every one of their needs.  By understanding the various aspects of their car, a driver can dominate the circuit.  To begin working on your vehicle head to the Mechanic Shop.

Exterior
The first pieces of the puzzle lie in the car’s exterior.  Choose the body kit that best embodies your racing style.  Want to show your rivals that you are one tough driver?  Try out a tank chassis.  Are you a proud member of the Dragons whose skills are as hot as the creature you represent?  Equip your car with a dragon’s head on the front end.  Perhaps you want to instill fear in the hearts of the Scorpions’ foes?  Add a scorpion tail to the rear of your car to show that you mean business.  The Mechanic Shop has a ton of body kits, tires, and skins to choose from that best fit your style.  Also, keep in mind that different parts affect your stats differently.  Compare your choices to see which design best meets your needs in terms of function and appearance.

Weapons
When in a race between the Dragons and Scorpions, disputes are not simply settled when one crosses the finish line.  The Racing Circuit is a battlefield and savvy drivers understand that their vehicles must possess a balance of speed and power.  Much like choosing your car’s body kit, think about your driving style when selecting your weapons.  Do you want big, in-your-face weapons like the lightning gun or plasma cannon?  Or perhaps you like to build upon a huge lead with traps like the land mine launcher?  Whatever your tastes, make sure to incorporate these into the final design of your car.

A well-designed car will enhance your driving abilities.  You will notice the difference when you enter the circuit and decimate your rivals—leaving them in your dust.  However, first you must do some research on the best body kits and weapons that fit your style.  Start thinking about the message you want to send to other racers and begin building!
