Car games provide entertainment and relaxation for car lovers of all ages. Many car games are nothing more than racing and chasing. For those who like to be involved on a more realistic level, there are games that address other aspects of car ownership, such as keeping the engine tuned and ready to go.

Nitto 1320

Nitto 1320 is a realistic, online race game with plenty of extra features, including opportunities to compete against other racers. To begin, you need to earn money by racing in the entry-level races. As you earn money, use it to buy and customise all the cars you like the best. Once you have your cars, use your money to upgrade your engine. The last step is to tune up your engine by using the realistic performance tune up feature that is built into the game. Take it to the racetrack to see how well you did. If you lose, try tuning your engine again. When you win, use the cash prize to make your cars go even faster by adding engine enhancements and turbo-tuning. Follow the link in the references section to download this game.

Need for Speed: Underground

The Need for Speed series of racing games has been popular since the release of the first game in the series in 1994. Each game in the series involves different races and activities where fast cars and wild action form the basis of the game. In the "Underground" game, you race against a series of challengers, winning the game once you have defeated them all.

An important aspect of this game is that you are able to tune the engine of your car in order to maximise its performance. In order to take advantage of the engine tuning capabilities, you must first win a race to earn cash. You can then use the cash to pay for vehicle customisation and engine tuning. When racing, watch your gauges carefully to make sure you don't damage the engine by pushing it too hard. After a race you can go back to the garage and tune your engine again to tweak its performance, which helps you to win the next race. This game can be purchased in video stores and from online outlets and runs on most game systems, as well as PCs.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Carbon game is the tenth release in the Need for Speed series, and is one of the games that features a large engine tuning component. The game is mostly a race game, but it is impossible to win unless you hire the right mechanics and keep your engines tuned properly. When playing, you earn money by winning races. Use the money to buy parts and hire mechanics to help get your cars ready to race. Tune your car engine to maximise it for specific features, such as a high-top speed or rapid acceleration. All engine tuning is done inside a safe garage, away from other racers. This game runs on most systems and can be purchased at video game stores or online.
