In yesterday’s Drag Mode blog we discussed the anatomy of a drag race starting n the pre-race lobby and ending in the post-race screen. Today, we’re going to be covering the new Drag specific Skill Mods that will become available when Drag Mode is released.
When Drag first becomes available, there will be three new Skill Mods to help give you the edge in your races:
Launch Grip “Takeoff”
- This Skill Mod Improves acceleration in Drag races by enhancing tire grip at race start. The basic version can be purchased in the Skill Mod Shop, while the more advanced versions can be won from the lucky draw or from race skill packs in the Card Pack store.
Gear Ratio Enhancement “Well Oiled Machine”
- Increases the size of the RPM band required to hit a Perfect or Good Shift, which makes it easier to hit. Like Launch Grip, you can find some in the Skill Mod Shop while the higher-rated ones need to be found in the lucky draw or from race skill packs.
Aero Drag Reduction “Aero Drag”
- This mod improves aerodynamic properties on the car, thus boosting its performance in Drag races.
- Aero Drag will be exclusively pre-installed on any ‘drag’ edition cars and will not available from the lucky draw or card packs
Each skill will be available in different ‘star’ qualities. 3-star Skill Mods will give you the most benefit, so install them on your rides to boost your chances of winning!
Now you know everything you need to know for the upcoming release of Drag Mode in Need for Speed World!
