Hey there Hot Wheelers!
Bouncing in for a moment to try to answer the questions I’m seeing over and over in the comments, and a few I’ve not seen yet but I know will come. So take a peek below to see if I’ve managed answer all your queries, and if there’s anything else you’re wondering just ask me about it in the comments.
HOW LONG HAVE I GOT TO UNLOCK RICKY BOBBY?
You’ve got 6 days from the moment you repair him in the event area, you then only have 6 day to fully unlock him. If you don’t get all his requirements within the 6 days he’ll leave the game and you won’t be able to get him.
CAN I DELAY REPAIRING RICKY BOBBY AND IF I DO WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
Yes you can delay repairing him. If you don’t repair him, you can simply delay the 6 day timer triggering until you’re ready.
The main consequence of this is your progress through the Time Trials Questline will stall at Part 1 until you do repair him. Remember you need complete this Questline to see the Week 2 content when it drops.
DO I NEED TO UNLOCK RICKY BOBBY TO TAKE PART IN WEEK 2 OF THE EVENT AND WILL HE BE NEEDED IN WEEK 2?
No you only need to repair Ricky Bobby to progress through the main Time Trials Questline, you don’t need to unlock him.
And he will be useful as a Racer in Week 2 but he’s not essential, having him will make things easier probably but not having him won’t stop you taking part in Week 2.
DO I NEED TO BUY EVERYTHING IN THE STOCK CAR GARAGE THIS WEEK?
No, you only need to buy the first 5 items, you DO NOT need to buy the Pole Position Gentleman’s Club to progress to Week 2 at this time. So I’d save those Trophies until Week 2 triggers and see if we’re forced to buy it then. I’m hopeful we won’t need to.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO SEE WEEK 2 WHEN IT’S RELEASED?
Simply complete the Week 1 Questline Time Trials.
WHY ARE ALL MY RACERS SHOWING AS UNAVAILABLE?
If you go into the Race screen and see all the racing characters darkened out and unavailable this there might be a few reasons why.
Burt Reynolds – You’ve either not bought him, he’s a premium character, so you’ll need buy him. If you bought him and he’s still unavailable he’s probably on a task collecting stuff for Pete Racer, so you’ll need wait until he’s finished his current task to use him in Racing.
Bruce – You’ve either got him in Tan Lines or Storage, so pull him out. Or if you’re a newer player you’ve possibly got him on a task, so wait until it’s finished and he should be available for Racing.
Pete Racer – You’ve probably not unlocked him yet, so keep working on his drops. If you unlocked him and he’s still unavailable he’s probably on a task, so you’ll need wait until he’s finished his current task to use him in Racing.
If you can select characters but not start a race you’ve probably not got 3 Gas Cans.
If you’ve checked all the above and have 3 Gas Cans and the characters needed wandering free in your game and still can’t select them to Race you’ll need contact TinyCo.
WHAT CAN I GET FROM RACING?
Ok, it’s quite simple really, even though TinyCo make it complicated.
If you lose a race you’ll simply get 5 Prize Money.
If you win a race you’ll get 5 Prize Money, 3 Champagne & 3 McBurgertown Sponsorship.
Now It’s very important if you win a race you must hit VROOM to get your prize asap as if your game should crash and reset for any reason before you hit VROOM, when you reopen your game you’ll need go through the process of collecting from the Race again and the outcome could be different, it may show you lost the race rather than won.
WHATS THE PRIZE MONEY FOR AND HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH IVE GOT?
You can use this to buy track pieces etc from the Store.
You can see how Much Prize Money you have by clicking the i on any Track piece in the store. In the right hand panel you’ll be able to see how much Prize money you have.
THERE ARE CHARACTERS LISTED IN THE FAQ AS USEFUL BUT I CANT SEE WHAT THEY DO IN THE EVENT, i.e. STEWIE & BRIAN?
The FAQ refers to the Event not just this week, so they’ll most likely be used more in upcoming weeks, they don’t do anything drop wise this week but are used in Side Questlines.
DO I NEED TO BUY TRACK PIECES AND DOES EXTENDING THR TRACK WITH THEM GIVE ANY ADVANTAGE IN RACING ODDS?
You only need buy what any Questlines dictate, you can save your Prize Money incase something better comes along as placing additional track does not increase the odds of you winning a Race.
MY TRACK PIECES WONT ROTATE?
The two pieces of Track above currently don’t rotate, I’ve reported this to TinyCo.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY TRACK DESIGN WHEN THE EVENT ENDS?
Any items you buy and place in the event area will be placed into your inventory at the end of the event when the event area disappears.
Hope this helps answer some of your ongoing questions!!!
