You dont have to pay for anything other than your subscription, because each kilometer or mile you do(known as vMiles), converts to VRC$ which you can buy anything with. Unless you want to waste your hard earned cash.

I'm afraid this could become for many people the replacement for the real thing. Personaly I use it for training during Winter but that's it. Its like all social networks the people don't need to leave there warm homes to have contact with other people ... For me everithing gets too unpersonal

I like the idea of miles for cash, but just what is the rate at which you "earn" it at? 2c per mile?? I hope its worth it, I do a fair bit of racing IMO, but just how much I do, not a clue, how bout you? haha, had to make that rhyme!
I agree, it makes things more "unpersonal" but I guess it's good for the times, when you can't race, but here in Aus, its pretty good all year, just the unfortunate Sundays where it rains. Stupid Melbourne weather and its 16 seasons

I have not had chance to use vrc and was looking into purchase it to keep sharp in winter months.

How does the "feel" compare to running an actual nitro car. Especially with concern to brakes,acceleration, and traction. Is it comparable to real thing or more like most other video games on the market and seem kind of out of spec to actual racing.

Thanks
Jamie

when i was racing about 3 or more hours a day, i saw that even though it gives you the option of different tyre compounds almost everyone ran the softest, also the cars seem very twitchy on brakes unlike in really life.

once you get the hang of it, you will begin to try to get a perfect run and restart the race many times, as the cpu players get in the way...

cant wait for v4

It feels pretty good once you get a good setup. Don't expect to use your current "real" setup In the vrc game. But the game does follow the same dynamics of set-up theory. ie higher ride height yields more traction.
I think the use of a front oneway is too sensitive in the game. But all in all it will teach you throttle control.

Make sure your PC meets minimum requirments. Make sure you buy an unregistered version of the game.

Pass you soon...

By using a higher ride height I can use a harder shore tire. That could eliminate a tire change during the main (20 minutes or longer).

Hmm, I did notice where I run if I make the RH a little higher, my overall grip did increase a little, and that would be due to more weight being shifted over to that side? Again referring to setup books, it says the lower the car is the more grip it will have - as long as you don't bottom out.
