Are there any guidelines to earning money online? IOW, does anybody know how much money, if any, is earned for 2nd, 3rd, and so on? I've raced several races and came in 2nd and didn't get anything. But people have told me that you DO get money for placing in top 3 or 4.

You get money depending on your place, how many people were at the start, the track, and the number of laps. You get no money for last place or not finishing.

so if I come in 2nd, but I don't finish within the 30 second or 1 min countdown at the end then I won't get anything? I guess that makes sense. Thanks.

After you buy the car, "Get in Car"

2) Got to "Paint Car"

3) Scroll right until you reach a picture of a poster entering a folder, it should say that you can save your current design to a design catalog at the top left.

4) Save your/painter's design to catalog.

How to apply it:

Note: As far as I know you can only apply it to the exact same type car, although I might be wrong.

1) "Get in car" (same type if necessary)

2) Go to the very end were your can apply a design from the "design catalog"

3) Select your design.

Is there a way to mirror the decals in design mode? I must be missing something. I know you can skew, and enlage and rotate, but what about mirroring a decal? Some decals are symmetrical so if I want to put 2 back to back or point to point I can't seem to make it look right.

am I missing something or what? thanks....

I don't remember which car I used, but you can just upgrade your current car as long as it stays class A. but be sure you also have enough grip, I overpowered my ferrari and its useless now. The upgrade thing is in the same menu as go race, my cars etc.

In career mode press "RB" then press "X" to switch region. A screen should come up with a little more info on the specifics.

Depends on the type of track, and if you have to sacrifice one, it will be always be better to have both.

But in a case which you can't advance both:

a) Nissan speedway: since you accelerate basically only for the first few seconds it's better to sacrifice acceleration for speed..

b)Tsubaka: Seeing as there is no "long straight" it would be more advised to sacrifice speed for acceleration.

A good way to tell what's needed would be to simply use the "Hot Laps" as reference to tuning or picking your own cars.
