Tips and Tricks for Real Racing 3
Make the Right Choice
Since Real Racing 3 is based on a freemium model you need to extra careful at the decisions you make right from the start of the game. One wrong spending can lead you struggling for hours to recover the hard earned in-game money. I am going to suggest that you go ahead and start your career with the Ford Focus RS. I quickly started winning races, piling up cash and quickly upgrading the parts to make this car the ultimate amateur machine. One I was 50 percent through the Pure Stock Challenge Series I made a terrible mistake. I bought the Dodge Challenger R/T muscle car and wanted to expand my racing empire. Instead I should have waited and bought the Audi TT RS which would have unlocked more events with higher prize money.
I struggled a lot switching between the Ford and the Dodge in order to collect another 100k and finally bought the Audi TT sports car. The feeling was overwhelming and I thought I did beat the notion of “No progress without real cash” for Real Racing 3. I was partially wrong. All of a sudden the events started getting tougher and it was difficult to keep winning trophies and unlock more races. The bitter lesson that I learned is to wait for a mid-range car from a particular category and then make the purchase. Had I invested in a BMW M6 I could have completed the Exotic Series in no time. Another important thing that you should keep in mind is to keep collecting coins and never use them. Once you finish 20-30 races you should have an arsenal of 40-50 coins since you are awarded something after every driver level. These coins can later be used to purchase a McLaren F1 or something similar. Always invest money on you upgrades. Be a little patient and try to outrun the time for repairs, improvements etc. by doing something else.
Learn Traits for Each Race Type
It’s important to under the concept and pattern for each race type. First, you have these long grinding endurance races that deplete a large chuck of your tyre and fuel performance. If you are looking to compete in this event then make sure that all your repairs are full because there is nothing more frustrating than stopping your car just before beating number 1. Drag races are focused more towards your tyres and engine. You can still participate in these races with minimal fuel. The key is to keep all your maintenance levels to green at all times. The trickiest is the speed snap where you need your car to perform at max settings especially in later stages of Real Racing 3. So, make sure you understand each race type based on their demand.
Master the Art of Cornering
The only way to defeat your opponents if you truly want to excel in Real Racing 3 is to master the art of driving through the corners. In each and every race you will start at the last grid. While this seems a bit unrealistic it’s high time that you get mentally prepared to defeat all of them like a hero. The most critical turn is the first one after the race starts. Do not fear for car damages since you can easily fix them with a fraction of your winning money. Also make sure that you are turning all driving assists off and using the manual braking mechanism to control your car. Once you start getting the hang of it it’s a lot of fun to defeat 5-10 cars at one turning of the track.
Replay Events to Earn Money
In Real Racing 3 there is a major loophole to the whole system. It’s possible to earn a lot of money just by replaying the past events. While this sounds too good to be true there is a hidden feature that makes winning even more difficult every time you launch the same race. The difficulty increases progressively so make sure you are prepared for it. You can also play events previously played by a lot of your gamecenter friends. Once you defeat them all, you will be awarded with some bonus cash.
Use the Hood Camera
I have tested all the camera angles on my iPad and found out that the best way to play Real Racing 3 is by using the hood camera. You can make some precise turns, anticipate opponents ahead of you, fine-tune your slip through car gaps and much more. If you are struggling with a particular race then try switching to this camera. Unfortunately, the interior camera is not that great expect the mind blowing graphics. In the interior camera the game lags a bit, at least on my iPad 3.
I hope that these tips will boost your Real Racing performance and help you win more trophies.
