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!

Lead Your Team to Victory

The battle for dominance rages on between the Dragons and Scorpions—which side are you on?  While drivers on either side debate about whose team is better, there is one way to decide which force is truly number one: the Team Scoreboard.

chrome2013-06-2413-32-42-85_zps38f99758Check the Team Scoreboard located next to the Racing Circuit’s entrance before each race to determine how much of a lead your team possesses or the amount of ground you need to make up to even the playing field.  The scoreboard takes a number of factors into consideration such as drivers’ racing times, place finishes, and the number of enemies dusted.  It takes a well-rounded team to be number one and getting your team into a winning position is as much a team effort as it is an individual accomplishment.

chrome2013-06-2413-33-18-74_zps0f40b0c0Your rivals may disagree with you on which team is better but ultimately, talk is cheap.  Round up your crew and let your driving do the talking.  At the end of a hard day’s work, you will be able to point to the Team Scoreboard to silence your critics and prove once-and-for-all which team owns the streets.
