Is there any secret to the Thunder Run Racing game? Sometimes the opponent will be already finished before I'm done with my second lap, and this is without running into walls and things like that. How do I make my dragon faster, and what's the best way to use its energy in the racing game?

A Couple Tips

Well, there are a couple small things. Save your boost for right before you go through a ring, that way you still get some extra speed but the ring helps refresh your energy level quicker. Cut corners wherever you can; they might seem small, but five or six little corner cuts in each lap start to add up. Many "shortcuts" are just several corner cuts strung together to give the shortest path from A to B to C. 

 

As far as speed goes... The only way to get faster is to gain more experience for your dragon. You can do that by racing, by doing quests, completing Flight Club levels, etc. The higher level your dragon is at, the faster it can fly and maneuver, plain and simple. If you race somebody with a level 18-20 dragon, you're gonna get smoked every time unless you're right up there in the same range; not really any way around it. 

 

Hope that helps some!

Thanks for the ring tips! I

Thanks for the ring tips! I noticed that they were boosting my speed, but didn't know about saving my energy for them.

I'm winning some and losing some, but it seems like I'm getting smoked by Zipplebacks a lot...are they a faster species? One was two levels lower than me and was going incredibly fast (the one lap ahead of me thing)

 

Also finding I'm getting beat at the very last millisecond, haha!

 

And not sure if this is a glitch, but sometimes when I win, it shows me as 2nd place, but I still get the 10 trophies for first place.

That's a good possibility...

And yes, Zipplebacks are the fastest species (but they have awful turning).

Is it best to practice alone for a few times before racing against someone else?  I'm terrible at it!  Lol. Also, my dragon is currently level 20!  What's the best way to level her up?  Is racing against others the only way to get trophies?  I've only played a few days, so much of the game is still new to me.

Here some tips and answers

Racing tips: 1.Dive when you start a race it increases acceleration. 2.Go up and down a bit while racing it keeps the dragon from slowing down. 3.Only use speed boost in a long straight path to avoid crashing. 4.If your lead is in 3rd place or lower while racing if you hit a Power Box you will have 95% chance of getting a Speed Boost.  Answers to your questions: When you finish all the quest you have to wait until next update to recieve more. I hope this helped c:

This was almost a year ago,

This was almost a year ago, so probably not. They've added more dragons since then.
