In Drag Racing 2, you have to figure out how to get ahead of your opponents. Press down the gas pedal and shift gears as the car speeds up. There’s a sweet spot for shifting gears, and if you time it just right a good gear change will help you pull ahead of the other car. If you push the car into a higher gear too early the engine will struggle, but switching gears too late is no good either. Wait until the dial reaches the green wedge for the perfect gear shift.
