Quality of Life & Accessibility Suggestions

A thread to discuss quality of life changes especially in the early game, and accessibility features.

So not a discussion of new cars, new challenges, new campaign but of changes we can make that improve the overall experience. It can be a really good use of resources to focus on ideas that will help not just veteran players, but midgame players, and all of the new people just discovering Top Drives.

Your ideas might be things that answer these kind of questions:

1) What should be easier to do?
2) What should be clearer?
3) What didn't you understand for a long time?
4) What little things annoy you, that could be changed?
5) What is a small thing you wish Top Drives did, that it doesn't currently do?

Then we can identify which suggestions are the easiest to implement and which are the most likely to substantially improve the Top Drives experience.

    Live Gap meters for strength and weakness comparison.
    Option to skip all races before the start of the 1st race...
    I also hate it when cars go full Ken Block after the finish line and not just keep on driving or use their bleeding brakes to slow down.

    Slider filters for 0-60, top speed, handling etc.  Similar to the topdrives club filter system.

    It would be awesome to say filter and show all my sub 5 second cars with 80+ handling for example.

    In no particular order, some already mentioned but repeated because they are key:
    - lock switch missing when outisde of “my cars” (eg when selecting cars for a race), whereas unlock switch is there
    - ability to filter by ride height
    - ability to filter by a given rq; when scrolling through 100s of cars, going to rq15 cars when selecting super rare takes ages for instance
    - include weight on front of card
    - show time remaining for oldest car on the holding bay timer (ie the one that we will loose the soonest), not the time remaining on average, this is currently useless
    - show total number of cars in garage
    - test area for tracks not in the campaign, this is becoming more and more of a hindrance as new tracks are added

    When wearing Bluetooth headphones with the game sound turned off, there is a long-standing bug that turns the sound back on. Not the music, just the sound effects. I have to go to settings, turn sound on (it still says it's off even though it's making noises) and then turn it off again to fix it. Would be nice to have this fixed.

    How about a "Go" or "Race" button after cars are placed? That way you can check and conform before the race starts.

    just a big stat tracker that tracks all of our statistics, like tickets played since starting, money earned etc

    The new environment looks amazing, would it be possible to touch up the original campaign tracks also?

    The ability to fine tune the notifications that the app gives out. Currently I have notifications turned off as they spam too much, but I'd be interested in being notified if a car is due to expire or that I have 5 tickets ready in the Challenge or a tune is complete. But I don't want to know when an event is ending. Obvs other people will want to know different things, just giving some examples.
    I didn't even know this game did notifications. Must have turned it off day 1.

    I’ve said this a number of times already- ability to re-order and sort saved hands. Maybe add a close button to stop it from exiting on its own if you touch it the wrong way.

    Also being able to select specific cars to compare within your garage. There’s a compare function in the holding bay which is rather limited, expanding that into the garage and making a better version would be much more useful
    I had to check this compare function, because I swear I have never used it before. :)
