There are many other racers out there with these same aspirations, willing to do whatever it takes to get the checkered flag first!

Disassemble, repair, and upgrade vehicles part by part - from bumpers to sway bars - nearly every possible part that is found on an actual vehicle will not only be present in Overspeed, but removable, damageable, and upgradeable. Basic rules of tuning allows players to improve the efficiency of the engine in top gear in order to achieve more speed, change the exhaust system in order to have better acceleration, install a spoiler, a diffuser and door sills to improve aerodynamics and install a nitrous oxide system to boost the power of their ride.
