I hear its pretty good. Only problem I see from VRC is the local superior race is a parkinglot track. Very tight and theres nothing like that on VRC at least from what Ive seen.
I also hear daytonas track has gotten a lot better off-road and on-road. Im going to hit that area up soon.
Yep, I've been using the USB adapter and from my limited experience bashing my old RTR Nitro 3 over a year ago, I think this program does a pretty good job of simulating the dynamics of an RC car. There is even a work around in the new version that lets you play dual player over the internet which is quite fun, too.
Let me know how the Daytona track turns out. Do you know if you can just show up with your car and race, or have to be a member of the club?

I wasn't expecting it to until I saw this thread over on their forums:
Maybe the guy was just some prodigy, but getting TQ the first time out makes a pretty good testimonial.
Even if the handling isn't 100% accurate, all of the setup adjustments effect the car realisticaly, so I can at least learn basic setup techniques. And if nothing else, it'll give me a little more confidence when I finaly do start racing.
