Slither along sweeping curves in a jungle full of splendid shrines. With this track’s snake-like bends, you’ll need to sharpen up your drifting skills! Unlock this Novice course in ranked racing once you reach Silver I.

Major Improvements, Adjustments, and Bug Fixes


  • We’ve adjusted respawns to ensure you’re no longer able to respawn ahead of where you farthest made it in the current lap. You should also experience fewer respawns too far behind this point.

    • This change includes addressing a bug that enabled some players to reverse over the start line, trigger a demolition, and respawn at the next checkpoint further ahead.

Bots Are Better!

  • We’ve made a bunch of improvements to bot behavior, including improved off-road pathing, air dodging, jumping, flying, and landing.


  • Based on player feedback after v29.30, the shortcut on Jackrabbit that we closed off is back!

  • Teleport Checkpoints now continue to teleport racers even when they are marked as previously visited.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the speedometer would fail to update while air rolling and thrusting forward without holding throttle.

  • Cleaned up the barriers in Sidewinder and Anarchy Arches 2 to prevent players from clipping through the environment.

  • Fixed an issue where the "Kicked for being idle for too long" message was appearing in English regardless of the player’s chosen language.

  • Fixed a game crash instance on Android devices.
