I have the DEMO. It came with tracks, and I am about as fast as anyone with my up, down, left, right arrows than people with the pistol grip controller!!! The offraod version should be coming out in a couple months.

It is fun. I got it when it first came out. Played it for a while and enjoyed it. I used their pistol grip. Get the usb adapter and use your own controller.

I play it too! I also use the USB adapter so I can drive with my own radio. The off road electric version should be out early next year.

A Main has this controller for 30$

But I would like to see what the off-road game looks like first before I get the controller.....

Look at the comparison between real and VRC. HERE

They are coming out with a new version 4 which is suppose to much realer. It helps me out alot with not only driving, but ALOT with setups about tuning. You can tune bascially anything you can find with that game and it is a FREE download. There is really nothing to lose!
