Picking your Racers
When you are putting together your three-character team you ideally want to have one of each of the three main types of racer (Speed, Technique, and Power).Check out our Choosing a Racer Guide to find out about the different karts on offer.
Open Mod Pods
Get into the habit of every time you earn 50 Credits you exit out of Campaign mode and select the 'Mod Pod' option in the main menu and buy a few Mod Pods. The contents are random, every Mod Pod will hold either a cosmetic item, performance car part, or a bonus block. Mod Pods cost 10 Credits each and you should open them as soon as you can as you will need the upgrades they contain later on in the game.
Whenever you are near one of your teammates you should be alternating between giving and taking Slingshot boosts from behind one another. The longer you can ride in your teams trail the further you will go when the Slingshot catapults you.
Updating your Kart
Although it is easier changing kart parts out in the garage you can also do it before every race by selecting the 'Loadout' option after selecting your character.
Unless you are doing a mission that specifically requires for you to collect a certain amount of rings you should not worry too much about them as they come and go easily anyway.
Share your Items
Team Sonic Racing puts a lot of empahasis on team play and encourages you to share the items you pick up such as boosts and weapons with your teammates. Help your teammates whenever you can as your final position is based on an average of all three of your team members.
Team Ultimate Bonus
If your team is struggling at the back of the pack you need to work together and earn the Team Ultimate bonus to get back into the race.
