There are a ton of unlockable customization and upgrade options for your vehicles. Spend your money on customizing the look of your vehicle, buying weapons, or upgrading your car.
Driving dynamics in Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage are acceptable, but could be more accurate. There's really no need to brake in this game with its arcade-style handling. It's easy to crash the car as the enemy AI is very aggressive, but it makes winning all the more rewarding.
