What is it?
Competitive Chao Race is an event often held in Tournaments in order to determine who is the best chao! These events often take place on There are two types of tournaments that you should know about. ChaoGardenBuster‘s and Mindacos’ (aka ChaoArcade‘s) tournaments. In ChaoGardenBuster’s tournaments, it’s an all our 1v1 the whole way through where you can sign up your best chao with the best stats/grades to compete and even bet on which one of the two will win. In ChaoArcade’s tournaments it’s a full 8-chao racing tournament Free-For-All where the top 4 would go to the next round and the bottom 4 would be sent to the loser’s bracket and/or eliminated. However in these tournaments, your chao will be rebalanced to stats that are fair so that way high-end chao and low-end chao are equals and it is fair for everyone. Meaning your chao will get a buff/nerf depending. As of now, there is no set time for when ChaoGardenBuster’s tournaments will start but when there is you’ll be given a 2-week notice beforehand. For ChaoArcade’s tournaments they’ll usually be scheduled every Weekend between 1PM – 5PM (UTC+0).

Is this only for the PC version of SA2B?

I have a Chao on PS3/Xbox360, can they still participate?
Yes! As long as there is a way to export your SA2B save onto a external device and into your PC! Look at this video located here. Although the video is for PS3 the same thing would work for Xbox360.
