- Many members of the MotorStorm community felt that the four Festivals in RC got "too tricky too quickly". As such, 23 races have been retuned to give the player a fairer chance of collecting all 3 medals per event.
- Target times (in Drift, Pursuit, and Hot Lap modes) have been increased in 16 events.
- The speed and competitiveness of the AI has been retuned in an attempt to make the more difficult races easier.
- Instead of the one chance at the end of a race to send a challenge, you can now return at any time to send one; this gives the player more opportunity to send challenges.
- The races available in the free trial have been altered to the current, most popular events.
- If the player's record times are higher than the newly modified target times on an event, then they will automatically collect the medals they would have earned.
- The Supercar exclusive events have not been changed and still retain their original difficulty.
