In the April 30 and following betas, the need for speed skill if set to 2/3 or 3/3 would prevent many (or all?) cars from shifting into top gear. Thanks to feedback from several players that it was working, I set needforspeed skill to 3/3 and tested it with 4 different cars, and it's working now.
Part of the fix was to reduced the effect compared to the April 30 effect, which was 5.25% at 1/3, 10.5% at 2/3, and I don't know what the 3/3 setting was. The effect at 3/3 is now 6.25% (to 6.5%) or 8.85% if nitrous is used. There also seems to be some increase in power, similar to dragster effect.
I now have dragster, nerves of steel, and need for speed skill all at 3/3. Although these skills are described as only having effect in races, they also affect pursuits. While in free roam, if you tap a cop car to go into pursuit mode, the increase in acceleration and top speed is immediately noticable.
Summary of change in top speed.
Silvia with green pro upgrade 142 mph increase to 151 mph Elise with green pro upgrade 169 mph increase to 180 mph Z06 with green street upgrade 190 mph increase to 202 mph Audi R8 with green street upgrade 191 mph increase to 203 mph BMW (no upgrade available) 192 mph increase to 204 mph (209 mph with nitrous).
CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.

Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
