It would be cool if you could use a vrc adapter and your RC radio to control things.

I'm not on it, but a friend of mine is, I haven't been to his place to try it yet, but he tells me he has a full racing seat, wheel and pedal set-up with a dedicated 36" TV just for iRacing.

It looks interesting.

It's pretty nuts, every bit as big a deal as R/C racing. I mean, yeah, there's other high-end racing sims out there; rFactor, netKar Pro, Reiza Game Stock Car, Project CARS, Live for Speed, heck you could even throw some SimBin titles like the GTR and RACE series' on that pile. But while they're all great simulators, that where they end; they just simulate cars on a track. iRacing's done that and done it extremely well, but they've also taken the time to come up with an incredibly thorough and well thought out form of legislation and organization to make the racing clean, fair, and progressive. They've successfully elevated simracing to a legitimate hobby, and with races officially sanctioned by NASCAR, Grand-Am, Australian V8 Supercars, and IZOD IndyCar (to name a few) you could go as far as to call it a regular form of motorsport.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (who supplied a few cars for iRacing to study, including his personal Frank Kimmel Street Stock) recently started a new division of JR Motorsports, just to build his own dream-team of iRacing simracers. One of them now drives his real-life Late Model

My specialties are the SK Modifieds and the IndyCar fixed series. Just won my first IndyCar race last night actually. Led wire to wire.
