Performance parts can be used to improve a vehicle's top speed, acceleration and handling in Need for Speed: Carbon.

Performance parts are accessible via the My Cars menu and in Safehouses within the career mode. They are available in Street, Pro and Race packages, with the latter being the most effective upgrades. After choosing a package, players can optimise certain performance attributes to further improve performance for various race conditions.

Tuning

An upgrade package contains three parts that allow the player to move a slider to tune their car towards a certain driving attribute. The first part has the greatest effect on the slider; the second and third parts are featured with ever-decreasing effects. If the player moves the slider entirely to the left or right, the upgrade will change the vehicle to a certain attribute by 100%.

Settings

  • Engine - More torque and a lower power peak or a higher power peak and less torque
  • Transmission - Faster acceleration and lower top speed or higher top speed and slower acceleration
  • Suspension - More understeer or more oversteer
  • Nitrous - Higher speed and shorter duration or longer duration and less speed
  • Tyres - Drift or grip handling
  • Brakes - More rear bias or front bias braking power
  • Supercharger/Turbocharger - More boost at lower RPM or higher RPM

Notes

  • Bonus and Custom cars cannot be modified.
  • Suspension lowering is only possible through visual customisation.
  • Drifting performance may be improved with oversteer tuning, which may also have the side effect of impairing cornering stability if done excessively.
  • Nitrous tuned for longer durations give the player a higher gain of overall speed.
  • Vehicles with more boost at higher rpms are more effective in high speed races.
  • Players may reduce understeer by adjusting their suspension and moving brake bias to the rear, and vice versa.
