Completely change the vehicle’s appearance using multiple material types such as carbon fibre, glossy metal, and toon. Add decals from hundreds already included or choose from your own image library. Directly paint on the surface of the vehicles using a variety of custom brushes. Add new parts such as spoilers and create your own custom exhaust, nitrous effects to make your vehicles look unique and distinct from other players.

Walk between hundreds of similar islands created by other winners such as yourself. Take part in multiplayer mini games such as tennis, table tennis, pool and water polo in any of these islands.
