The best way to get more speed out of your car is to adjust the gears in your transmission, you already have the power, so just adjust them and you will get a hell of a differance. If I remember right, raise the ratios and get more top end, lower them and get more tourque. I like the F1 cars in the game, they are excellent to run I like the Austy Touring Car and the Germen Touring Cars the best

You have to buy the racing transmission before you can change the gearing. Pop for that, go into the settings, and, as mentioned previously, set it up with some ridiculously high gearing. If you've got the racing suspension, lower the car, adjust the front and rear downforce, etc.
Have fun! Hartz

Thanks guys. I found where to set it up and it works perfectly. Let the tinkering begin! Another qustion.... is their anyway to get the big spoiler and colored paint job on your car? Or do you have to win one?
You cannot race mod the RUF cars in this game. Sorry.

you cant get a racing modification in the 3rd one like you could in the previous two. only some cars you'll win will have the paint and spoiler. All right im gonna purchase the racing trans then and set the gears high. I can surpas my old 256mph record
i think its the best car! I like the Indy car but its too slow!

Washing your car is just something to waste credits on; it just shows off how pretty your car is.
Changing the oil is required, pretty much. You lose horsepower if you don't change your oil. Once that stuff is good and brown, you can lose a healthy amount of horsepower. Just like in real life, it's one of the cheapest things you can do to your car, and you're foolish not to do it regularly.
