Glider
To upgrade its base points, choose the one on the left side. On the other hand, select the one on the right to increase its skill level. Each of them has a different type of ticket to use.

Base Point Upgrade

Glider
Upgrading the Base Point of your glider will add up to the total score you will get before the race starts. You can use Point-Boost Tickets on it to upgrade it, or consume all the daily EXP gained from racing. If you reached the max base point for the glider, you can always use a Points-Cap Ticket to break through its limit.

Increase the bonus-point your glider can get, and the chances of getting into Frenzy mode by upgrading its Skill Level. The Skill Level of a glider can only be upgraded by getting a duplicate in pipes or using a Level-Boost Ticket.
