I got my adapter from Dinball (RC Mart) too, and it took about a week for it to show up here in the states. Best $50 I've ever spent on R/C, ever.

Download the game for free and play around on the oval track for a while. You can mess with Oslo too, but it's hard. Using the keyboard will tell you enough about the game to know whether or not you'd like playing it with the adapter.

They're supposedly working on v4 of the game which should include support for electric/carpet racing, as well as off-road. I imagine it'll be a while before we see that, but they definitely know it's what people want.

In my experience, the skills you develop playing VRC help you in the real world.

So tell me, is it like the real thing? How are you able to control how your car is viewed as it moves on the track? What are your likes and dislikes about in comparison to the real thing?
TRY IT . It's free whether you get on with it or not and Oslo isn't a pretty good track to come with it. You can still pull som reasonable lap times with the keyboard before getting the tx adapter and its amazingly realistic. You can view the car from the rostrum with settings for zoom when the cars near and far. The game moves seamlessly between the two settings. You can also view the car with chase mode and I think an 'action' type view where the camera changes place as you go round the track. The set-up part is fairly realistic, but there are some factors you would never use in real life to set the car. The changes you make do tend to have an effect similar to that in real life.

It's free and secure anyway, so I'd go for it and if you don't like it you havent lost anything.

i have one of the usb adapters, the older blue one. But when i run the game it doesn;t seem like and of the setup changes i make afftect the car. I haven't bought any of the tracks, but i was wondering if the setup changes work in the free tracks. I even tried using some stupid setup to see if it would change the car dynamics but it still seemed to be the same.

Has anyone else noticed this?

I just got my adapter from rc mushroom for 36 bucks. I was buying some other stuff so I threw it in the cart. It is amazingly addictive. I wish my laptop was good enough to play it but I have to play it on my desktop. I need to figure out a way to connect the computer to the tv so I can play it on that. It is pretty small on a 17" screen.

I run it on my laptop and my tv has a rgb input so i have a cord that connects from laptop to tv. Plays through the home theatre system on a 42" tv. AMAZING

Theres nothing like standing in the middle of the living room, racing with the A/C blasting and not spending any moeny. The wife agrees, better to watch me play and wreck instead of wrecking and asking for the VISA LOL

And I too think this games can help you develop better driving skills. I just hope that there is carpet track to seen be out. Talk about heaven

hopefully deal pending with marty
the game is awesome...very realistic in my opinion, but i have a very fast computer. The set ups really make a difference. i can change the springs or the tires and notice a hugh difference in handling. I am now messing with the diff settings and ride height too. wow I am an electric guy and this is the best practice i can get. IMO you need a big monitor. my 17 is good but i wish i had much more...... lots of fun. next best thing to racing.......
hope to hear from marty soon......
