only drag racing game i've played is csr classics. it's very elaborate but still just not that fun
Csr classics is terrible compared to the original. In the original, you could play through and beat the whole thing without spending a real dime. Classics, everything is expensive as hell, so you either have to grind (which sucks with the gas system) or spend real money.
I've tried CSR and games similar to it, but I didn't like any of them. Door Slammers is done pretty well. It has some glitches, but it doesn't have all the bullshit other games have. Just racing, modding, and tuning.
