    This is the best racing game on a iPhone and iPad that I have ever played, no exaggeration it is the best free game on the App Store by far, so much to do and you all added new cars!! Very happy and will buy them all haha, this game is unique because it has a lot of potential and it is a great time user, I've played this over the years and it never gets old, always new content and always new possibilities, starts off as a casual game but play through and get better cars and you're set to go!!! By the way the cars are cheap and easy to get, some of them are harder but challenge is never a problem, one thing y'all could add is maybe a lambo? And the semi or the Thor 8800 as you call it, please make it a triple axel, it looks weird when you see it with only 4 wheels, like maybe like a older peterbuilt model would be absolutely great, and please add a wifi multiplayer so I can race my brother on some of the races? That would make my day and I will greatly suggest this to some of my friends, so add a extra axel and make 8 tires in the back and not only 2, possibly add a more racing type car like a Lamborghini or Ferrari, and add wifi multiplayer so when my bro can play then we can play on my wifi network, and maybe possibly add a player request system so I can find and play against him at his house or somewhere else, thanks so much for this game!!!!!!!!!!!

    Come on already

    Come on already and give us the same update that PC got. This game is perfect but all that’s missing is a few more cars and the ability to modify the body just like on PC. Also it’s been said multiple times that the currency system is completely wrong. Being greedy doesn’t allow the app to truly grow to its full potential and basically the currency system is completely lop-sided! Things that we’d all wish to see are at least two more tracks similar to the amazing tracks in Japan and tracks like willow springs In the US, and new cars that are super popular in the drift culture right now. Maybe even some versions of FD cars that have the same insane power of the real FD cars that are competing this season. There should be the option to pay either in cash or coins for all cars, tracks, and modifications in the future. Or change the amount of cash prizes for multiplayer and events to coincide with the amount of coin prizes. Once these things are addressed this will possibly be the best game ever created for the mobile platform! One last thing is that their should be a online lobby and map that’s completely open and free range so you can truly run tandems with friends online! Maybe even a true drift FD drift event where you follow the same rules as FD! Think about it!......

    Best game I’ve ever had.

    This game truly is free. Sure, some of the cars are hard to get, but that’s the point. If they were easy to get, why would they be so good, or so good looking? I have every car in the game, and I did not spend one cent. Now that took me a long time of ridiculously hard work, but I got some pretty amazing cars from it. You like Deane Kearney(I think I spelled that right)? Viper. But very hard to get. The point is, if you’re willing to work hard enough, you can have anything and everything in the game. It is a matter of want to. One thing I will say though is that it is very time consuming. To get this Viper, I spent about 9 or 10 hours each day of constant playing and watching ads for fuel. Some things I want to see soon. #1. Deeper customization. Body mods, offset, interior mods, the works. #2. A simulation steering mode. So far, you tell the car where you want it to go, and the game does the counter steer for you. It would be cool if you could do your own counter steer for more experienced drifters. Other games are rigged, a pay to win. #3. Online and local multiplayer. Pretty strait forward. TANDEMS! CSR Racing 2 for example. Impossible. This game is different. And if you still don’t believe me, try it for yourself. This game truly is free.

    Help! Game will not load past 75%!!!

    Hello Car-X gents! Still giving you a 5 star rating due to the hours and hours I’ve invested into the game. Since Car-X 2 has come out, I still follow up with the original for about an hour however, the last few weeks the game will not load past 75%. It just continues to try an load but is unsuccessful in completing the task. You guys have always been fantastic with communication not only with myself but the rest of your consumers throughout the life of Car-X (original). Figured I would take shot at you guys possibly seeing this review and take a look at the game or provide a update patch to get us going again. Again, thanks for all the hard work put into this version, it’s greatly appreciated and sought after even though #2 is out and even more incredible! Hope this reaches you fellas....if not, we’ll...I guess it’s onto the newest version as a “experienced newbie”. Will take some time before I am competitive as I would like to be. Either way, I hope Car-X2 lines your pockets in gold my is honestly a work of art! Here, here! Thanks again guys...Tygart511

    Best drift game for mobile.. PERIOD!

    Time for another review with latest update. Firstly I must say that only true car fanatics should program car games because your passion for the sport of drift shows through in each rendition of the game. The vehicles you add are legendary in their own respect. Thank you for adding the Shinobi! I’m into the classic imports and this is an often under appreciated vehicle. With the praises out of the way.. when can we expect body modifications on the iOS platform?? Half, if not more, of the fun is the actual building and customization of the car. Also, I understand vendors not wanting their cars smashed up in games, but you were very clever to rename every car to avoid copyright. With that, why not add damage.. not only cosmetic but damage that effects performance. This forces the player to hone their skills further than just slam bang style of racing. With option to turn it on and off of course. With that, I can’t say enough in regards to the gameplay, realism, sounds and the overall beauty of this game. I know it’s a long review but this game deserves it. Mestapho2000

    Game is AMAZING 👍🏼👍🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

    Physics are crazy good! HANDS down the best drift game on iTunes Store. However, I've had this game since it was first released where the GTR was starting car! That car with drift setup and 400+hp is sweet but only some cars are like this! There are a select few that are amazing, GTR, mustang, Spector RS,STG440 and 350z are the only cars I use. I'm disappointed in the frequency of updates (not enough tracks 🙏🏻 keep adding tracks) and I have done in app purchases more than once on previous phone and after re-syncing my purchases, I still have advertisements (although getting all bought items :]). Please put more tracks and fix the other cars they need more power for better wheel spin in higher gears and staying sideways on longer corners. Other than that game is addicting and mad fun! By the way the 240 should be fixed it slides weird! ALSO NOTE MAKE EVERYTHING DOUBLE CURRENCY. Please don’t turn into the app where you have to buy everything to have fun. With all that great physics over all 4/5

    Loyal User recommending Update advice?

    We need a “Free Roam” with multiplayer!! Been waiting years(yes I’ve had this game since it came out and never had any issues). New cars *USING COINS* and tracks *USING COINS* would be cool. More upgrades!! Kits, wings, more wheels, interior upgrades?!, nitrous while on throttle?!, engine mods? Etc. just think we need more personalization. As far as game running as a whole, never had any issues and the issues I’ve had, you guys were quick to sort out. Still continuing my 5 star rating years later! Side Note: So many people complaining on the handling of cars but I’m here whipping 360 entries and backwards entries like nothing 🤭 just sounds like you guys need more practice. I have not a single aid on my S15 and has the “ultimate” set up package with my tuning. Cars power is maxed and I do fine in solo and I’m in League I (top 3 every time) in multiplayer.

    Amazing game! Just need body mods customization like PC

    I honestly love this game so much. It is not just a simple drift game where you can just tap a button and just slide for hours. You actually have to put in the effort to tune your car and find the best sweet spot for the car. The tracks also matter too. Where you have to spend countless hours on the track learning the ways and whats best to get the most points. It is so fun to just keep trying to do your best after learning the track. Its like there is more to it. The tuning is very fun to mess around with. No games has put so much effort into their tuning. Its usually like 4 options and your done but there is so much more tunes you can fix and adjust. I really love this game and hope we get customizable cars soon because I am trying to be a ricer with big wangs on my AE86

    One of the Best Racing Games on Mobile

    This has to be one of (if not THE) best racing games on mobile. Graphics are sharp (especially for a mobile game), controls are smooth, and it’s just plain fun! It’s an online game, meaning you can compete with other racers, but there are also single player races (drift-point races or time trials) if you find yourself offline (I put my WiFi only tablet on airplane mode to make sure you can play the game completely offline). There’s a nice selection of cars. For now, you can only change a few cosmetic appearances of your car (window tint, rim style and color, body paint, and tire smoke color), but hopefully some of the deeper customization that just got introduced in the PC/Steam edition will find its way onto mobile. My only complaint and reason for the one missing star is the “watch-ad-to-play” system. Not only does the game give you an opportunity to earn free in-game cash by watching ads (both in the form of daily ads-for-cash as well as “bonus cash” every time you complete a race), but you’ll also have to suffer through ads in between menu screens. For instance, going from a race to your garage will cause an ad to pop-up. For me, it just gets in the way and breaks up my immersion in the game. I understand the ad revenue helps make the game free-to-play, and for some, that’s okay - even preferable, but I’d be more willing to pay a one-time fee to buy the game and not have to sit through ads. Ever. That’s just me.

    Very well made

    If you aren’t all about cars then you can disable some of the features to make a more arcade like game, if you are into the cars inner workings you can change the settings to have different gear modes, throttle sensitivity, break sensitivity, this game has a lot of substance for a mobile app, it isn’t a requirement to spend money and the overall feel of each car is unique, this game is very well made. The only complaint I have is the lack of cosmetics and multiplayer opportunities, I would love to see a racing competition against other players of some sort of improved cosmetics, like wings or areo kits, ect. As a casual player this game doesn’t have any noticeable problems and has enticed me to spend money, although I have spent money on the game I don’t feel like it is necessary as many of the in game items are easily attainable if you put the time into it. The better reason I have spent money is solely due to the fact that I feel the producers deserve the support for such a well made game.

    Big problem on the 1.14.2 update

    i really like the new Panther XW added to the game. it’s a really fun car to drift and mess around with. but there is a big problem with the clipping zones and clipping points game modes. i did a race on clipping points and got 1st place 80/87 clipping points. when the race finished and it gave me my reward, i did not earn any cash, where i was supposed to earn 15. i thought it was just a weird glitch that only happened once so i tried the race again, got 1st place 80/87 clipping points and it did the same thing. it also said i got 0 dp which wasn’t true because i held combo for most of the race. i tried closing and reopening the game and trying it on a different map, different mode, different car, but it kept doing the same thing. please look at this carxteam. i really hope it gets fixed soon because the new game modes was one of the best ideas for the game you guys ever had! thank you and keep up the great work

    Limited by mobile

    This game is a simple drifting game where it starts you off with default settings in where you barely have to steer at all (the game does it all for you), but if you decide to go for a more “realistic” experience you can change the settings to make it so you control the steering. Turning steering assist off in the menu even gives you a warning that “the experience will be very different” and they aren’t lying. When you turn this off, if you simply try to drive forwards at the start of a race your car will spin out if you’re not using the acceleration slider. Then you have to constantly slide your fingers up and down while breaking, steering, shifting gears, using the clutch pedal, and using the e-break. A phone or tablet doesn’t allow you to be able to do this in a successful way, so you can really only have one thing on at a time. Maybe if there was a way to turn the volume buttons on the phone into working buttons, or making use of the “3D” touch on iPhones (7 and up) for games then I can see this game being pretty cool.

    Used to be Excellent

    Don’t get me wrong, this game has been outstanding since the beginning, but with the last few updates it’s been a real bummer that you can no longer earn the new cars and tracks except by playing multiplayer online (pay for data) or purchasing credits (pay with cash). I had no problem when there were a few cash based cars, I get that they need to make money, but to introduce 3 new tracks and make them ALL cash based is just greedy. I’ve been playing this game for years and just wish they’d continue to support their long term base without making you pay for everything new. It doesn’t give me incentive to continue playing the game if everything new will be pay to play. Maybe make the new tracks credit based and the reverse tracks pay to play? I used to always look forward to the updates, and have even put money into the game to help support, but I’m not going to open my wallet every time they add something new.

    CarX Drift Racing

    Ok. Lemme say this. Graphics-✅, Updates-🤷‍♂️,Game quality-✅, Car steering and going-❌,Most of the game✅! I’ve been playing the game for 2 years. I download it every time I get a new phone or something. One of the first games I ever downloaded on my 1st ever phone! However I had to delete the game because, I keep getting spammed( and I mean SPAMMED) notifications like no tomorrow. I reset my phone even and it kept going off like crazy!! Very annoying ❌🤔 I deleted the app due to this but other then that, Game is decent and fun. Here’s some other random junk I’m gonna put that y’all can ignore:⤵️ ok so my car always glitches but it’s still ok. Free play option maybe? 😮 The online chat never worked kinda?? Maps and cars are to hard to get (I think, idk I forgot) The game really is decent and is worth a shot. Anyways thanks for reading( Even tho I bet nobody on this earth is gonna find this and read it) and I drift ya later! Catch me on track! CYAAaaaaa👋 🚗💨 *Insert drifting sound effect here*
