About Upgrades[]

Upgrades will increase the performance of your supercar in many aspects. They can increase weapon functionality, allow more room for weapons or items, and increase your health and armor. Supertrucks however, have no upgrades, but use Power Points instead. 

You may only equip 1 of each type of Upgrade. For example if you have Small Special Item Expansion and a Medium Special Item Expansion, you can only equip one or the other. 

In order to equip the upgrade, you must also have enough number of slots available for that upgrade. If you only have 1 slot available, but the upgrade you want to equip requires 2 or more slots, then you can either free up slots by removing other upgrades or obtain additional upgrade slots by leveling up your car.
