Speed Drifters Guide - Pet Functions and How to Raise Them
Update Speed Drifters January 24th brought several new features. One of its features is Pet alias pets. If you login since January 24th, you should get Penguin Boy for free.
The question is, what is the function of this Pet in racing? Why should you bother raising it? So how do you raise this pet?
Pet Functions in Speed Drifters
As of this writing, there are four Pets available at Seed Drifters. You will get one of them for free, namely Penguin Boy. The rest are Cupid, Vulpes, and Penguin Boy.
Each of these Pets provides additional visual effects. First, this Pet will turn into booster small in the back of the car before the race starts. Second, booster this will give you a color trail when you use the Nitro or acceleration zone. The color imprint given is different according to the Pet you have.
In addition, each Pet also gives certain bonus effects to your car. For example Penguin Gal can increase your Flying Boost and Landing Boost acceleration by 10 percent.
The effects of each Pet will really help you during the race. But you have to raise them to get that effect.
How to Raise a Pet
Each effect is tied to the Skin it has. For example, to get a second effect on Penguin Boy, you have to raise the Penguin Boy as a teenager. The question is, of course, how?
There are two ways to raise a Pet. The first is to give him “food” in the form of an Energy pack. You can buy Energy in the Shop or from rewards events (if available). To use Energy, simply press the Exercise button at the bottom right of the screen while in the Pets menu.
The second way is to diligently take him to the races. Indeed, the amount experience given is not much. But at least this method is free and will not be felt if you are diligent in playing.
After reaching a certain level, your Pet will be ready to evolve. But in order to evolve, you must have enough materials. Each Pet requires different materials to evolve. Just follow the prompts on the Upgrade screen.
Once you have enough materials, you can do upgrade and get additional bonuses according to the pet’s evolution stage. Simple isn’t it?

Currently besides Penguin Boy, there is only one additional Pet that you can get in the Shop, namely Penguin Gal. The other two Pets, Cupid and Vulpes, are only available in events which has not been announced. While waiting, you should first increase the currently available Pets, because if you pay attention, both provide special effects if you have both.
