For 11 tracks, the game, and a USB controler so you can use your M8 or whatever radio you have is about $140 depending on dealer.. Honestly WORTH IT!! lol. Tomorrow my nitro sedan race will be rained out. But in a couple weeks I get to race against some of the best in the world in VRC.. makes me faster and more consistent for the long mains..and its cheaper than going to the track and wearing out everything.. or crashing while trying to push to the very limit(like straight lining chicanes with 1/8th scale)

cool, as I have a m8. do you actually get to use cars such as mtx4, rrr, etc. How real is the control factor and setups and graphics?

well, so far the setups don't mirror real world setups.. I used a setup on the 710 that I liked a lot in real life and it sucked on VRC.. but the setup changes and whatnot seem to work about right for the change vs affect.. they dont have the xray to new, the mugen is the mtx3, but the kyosho is the rrr. The cars seem to be the same, but with gear ratio diffrences... Like last night my car was pushing a lot, so I swapped out the spool for a diff in front.. changed tire shore. springs, bars.. you can't adjust roll center.. but you can do enough to get the car in the ballpark. Shock oil weight tire shore, springs, # of holes in pistons, front and rear swaybars, front and rear track, wheel base,ride height, camber, caster, toe, engine, pipe(short, med, long), header(short, med, long), gearing, shift points, wing gurney, body shift forward or aft +/- 2mm.....

there is enough to play with lol, it helps me keep my mind in the game.. not to mention hitting your marks isn't easy.. offline there is no grip, just like at a big race...

Graphics are good enough to work with it.. not great tho(this coming from a Gamer). Most people will deal with the graphics..
