Update 0.4.0 - Release Notes

This new update builds on the game's core foundations to introduce several new part categories from our licensed brand partners that can be watchlisted within the garage and on the Torque Motorsport website.

We are also proud to showcase the very first look at the highly customized real life Pro cars of Formula Drift competitors Odi Bakchis and AdamLZ, and a handful of new stock cars including the new 2022 Subaru BRZ and the classic Nissan 240z

We hope you enjoy this release! Be sure to watch list all of the parts you want for your build so you’re ready when they become available.

Thanks for your ongoing support! ~ Billy

New Watchlist Assets

One of our main goals with Torque Drift 2 is allowing you, the player, to be able to customise your car to a level unseen in other motorsport games. To that end, we have been hard at work unlocking more parts and cars. Like the previous assets, be sure to watchlist any to get updated when they’re available.

Tow Straps

Front mounted Tow Straps from NRG are now available to watchlist.


Bodykits from 2F Performance and Liberty walk for the 180SX and 370Z are now available to watchlist.

Steering wheels

Steering wheels from 326 Power, Grip Royal, Momo are now available to watchlist.


A range of new stock 240z models plus the first appearance of 2 Pro Formula Drift vehicles of AdamLZ and Odi Bakchis

Alloy Scaling

Wheels are quite a technical challenge when designing a customisable and tunable motorsport game. There are often several different sizes and offsets per wheel and not all cars can fit all wheels, this gets even more challenging when you consider the full brake and rotor customisation that Torque Drift 2 allows for.
With all these requirements in mind we have built a realtime alloy scaling tool that will adjust things like wheel size, offset and concaveness to cater towards different vehicle needs. As always, we try to stick to what the wheel spec availabilities are in the real world.

Currently, you can only experience this tool when you change the different parts that make up your wheel but eventually, you will be able to tune each wheel in finer detail to suit your build.

Smaller Changes

Loading screens

To combat any lingering black screens while the game loads in a scene, we have integrated a new loading screen which is now applied to all scene transitions and environment changes.

Tow nodes

With the addition of tow straps to the visual part customisation, we’ve added a tow node to the front and rear of the cars visual wireframe. As we’re only releasing towstraps this update, we’re locking the rear node and leaving the front unlocked.
