We're going to be testing out some marketing materials over the next few days and weeks, which may include new icons and new screenshots in the Android store. Some will contain cars from manufacturers from a future update. I want to let you know in advance that we're not releasing an update with new cars yet - we're likely to have a bug fixing update soon, and then release our next update with cars a little ways down the road.

    Wait, so don't start hoarding again. I don't think I could handle that again yet! Thanks for the update, update.

    East Berlin update with new "Berlin Wall No Mans Zone" track. Whichever car gets shot less wins

    I'm likely just gonna pass this dodge update up and not care too much about it. I'm gonna just stockpile gold and cash for my birthday in a few months and have a huge spending spree of 10K+, although probably more.

    Mopar! That's some of Detroit's finest steel right there! Nevermind that a Tesla P100D smokes a Hellcat in a straight line, it sure doesn't sound as good.
    Too bad it won't have this turbine powered apocalypse ride (It looked hella cool in person):

    VAG cars would certainly be sweet, there are so many gems in their family.

    Would be interested to know how we have Audi, Bugatti, and  Porsche but no other VAG vehicles.

    Also so much want for the Miura, Speed Six, Fabia S2000, and Rambo Lambo.

    Some licences take longer to acquire than others. Just so you're not hanging on, this update won't include Jeep.

    Many people were probably expecting a track hawk. Ah well... but you never said anything about VAG group! Got my hopes super high, even if I probably shouldn't!

    So.

    I know we're all thinking about the Hellcat.

    It'll be the ultimate Impala/El Camino type car, right? The destroyer of all drag races?

    I'm not so sure. As such, I did some thinking, based on cars we already have in the game, to figure out where the RQ machine will throw the 'Cat. My first point of reference is a car that I reckoned was pretty close to what the Hellcat will probably be: the Jaguar D-Type.



    The Hellcat will probably look quite similar to this statistically. A little quicker off the line, probably somewhere in the region of 3.5 seconds depending on what statistics Hutch chooses to use, and with maybe 35 miles an hour extra top speed. Everything else - grip, drive type, tyres - should be about the same. My first thought was that, as a result, the Hellcat would shake out at the top of Ultra Rare, at RQ22. This is a horrible thing for a multitude of reasons. The car would be incredibly easy to acquire, since Hutch will probably offer up Dodge carbon fibre packs when the update drops, and incredibly easy to upgrade, since upgrades would be relatively cheap and it would only require Super Rares to fuse up. Everyone and their dog would have a fully-upgraded one pretty quickly and the drag race meta would stagnate for all non-Bugatti owners.



    As a result, it'll probably end up in Epic, as an RQ23 car similar to this Tuscan. It'll be very comparable to this car, actually - a bit faster off the line, but a bit less grip. Being in Epic will also make the meta less hellish (heh), as the car will be harder to acquire and upgrade. It'll still be a great car - for the RQ, no stock car will accelerate faster or have a higher top speed - but it won't be quite as meta-defining.

    Have you taken into account that it's possible we could get the Challenger & Charger Hellcats?  What about the Demon?  The old Ram SRT/10 would be pretty cool as well.

    While this is disappointing, it certainly doesn't sound like a "We are not looking to add Jeep."  B)

    Are we getting the bug-fix update tomorrow? Odd that the P1 finals aren’t showing yet and I know you guys like to finish big events on a Sunday anyway...

    Not only this but what about all of the brutally fast for their time Mopar rides: the hemi 'cuda, the '68 dart L023(it ran low 9s in the quarter off of the lot!), the '68 Daytona, the '78 Lil' Red Express(I mean, really, just so much want), even the 80's Dodge-shelby glh-s(goes like hell might be a bit of a misnomer but in the malaise-era of emissions controls it was indeed a beast), and the Super Bee, just to name a few. Mopar has some drag beasts that could change the drag meta not only at the very top but in all kinds of brackets and at a variety of rqs. I would love to see some competition for the Camino.
