The Crew 2 has a lot to offer for players such as ranking system, various events racing modes and also you can customize, upgrade or tune your vehicles and aircraft.
The performance level is created to give you an idea of how good your vehicle is compared to others in the same category. In order to customize your car, you don’t even have to go to your headquarters, you can carryout upgrades right there in the Start menu.
This is how Tuning works in The Crew 2
Complete races, get the loot: With each race you completed in the top 3, you will get loot boxes that contain random parts that you can use to upgrade your vehicle. These are basically better than the parts you have already equipped.
The parts, similar to equipment in other online games, have varying degrees of rarity, from the common gray parts to the epic (purple) parts of equipment. Ivory Tower has already announced the addition of another rarity level in September 2018.
These parts you can change on your car: brakes, transmission, control unit, exhaust, suspension and tires.
On boats you can tune the propeller and you on airplanes you can customize the fuselage.
The rarer parts, blue and higher, have different perks that let your nitro charge faster.
The power level shows how good your car or the individual parts are: the maximum level varies for each vehicle. So a '67 Chevy Impala has a maximum power level of 280, while the offshore Mk1 speedboat comes to 250. In the game you can look up all values in the catalog.
The basic equipment of the vehicles varies. Some start at very low power levels while others start at 150 and higher. It depends on the make and the vehicle type. But once you've built up a basic set of tuning parts, you can quickly take them to higher levels.
Parts are reusable: you can remove parts from other vehicles and reuse them at others. But there are clear categories here. Parts of street racers cannot be attached to cars designed for off-road racing. And certainly not on aircrafts.
