I fiugred I'd be the one to start a thread for VRC. Any die hard VRC racers out there? I thought this would be a good place for fellow VRC racers to exchange setup ideas, and replays. "Why wait for the weekend?"

I've downloaded the demo and have seen this program for sale at the local hobbyshop. Has anyone tried the coverter to use your real R/C transmitter on the PC?

Yes the VRC USB adapter works really great. IMO it's a must have if you're gona play this game. The racing controlers they sell are pretty cheap. The USB is about half the cost too.

i downloaded the demo and it rocks, however i cannot find the information of does it require to pay a monthly or yearly subscription, or will it work without being online? how much is a subscription to play online? al of that kind of info. i like those games that i have the choice (unlike world of warcraft where you have to pay a monthly subscription to play after buying the software). after the year online subscription is up would it be useless without buying a new year licsense, or can it still be played (just not online)?

I have played VRC plenty of times by using the keyboard alone and it is alot of fun, but I would like to get the adapter. Can you use the adapter with any radio? I have a DX-3 as my main radio. And what is a good price for the adapter? Thanks...

The USB adapter is for sure the best way to go.. and Yes you can pretty much use it with any radio.. I use the Futaba 3pk.. But I've never tryed it with the HRS system.. I'm a bit scared to try it lol. I just use it in FM mode. I've used it PCM mode as well. The adapter runs around $35 I beleive.. Hobby shops carry them.. Also you can get them on Ebay..

Hey thanks Mike for your reply, winter is coming in my neck of the woods and I need some indoor RC activities to keep myself busy. I am not a onroad guy normally but this VRC is pretty sweet. I wish somebody would come up with an off road version of this game, I think it would do pretty good in sales. My local hobby shops don't carrie this adapter anywhere around my area, I wish they did because I want to be sure that it would work with a Spectrum Radio. I have seen the adapter several times on e-bay but have been a little un-sure about the compatibility with my radio. Would it work with a am radio? I have plenty of them. Thanks again Mike...

The USB adapter just plugs into channel 1 and 2 on your RX.. just like your speedo and servo does.. So it will work with virtualy any radio.. Just like any speedo works.. and any servo.. The only thing I am unsure of is the 3pk's HRS system that requires Digital servo's.. But as far as DSM goes.. I'm about 99% sure it'll work lol.. I'm 100% sure it works with a AM radio..

Just a note.. VRC is working on a off road version as well.. It is said to be out fall of 2008. Early 2008 (around feb.) version 4 will be released which will include electric On road racing.. As well as Muti player.. So you can race with more than just 1 other real racer like it is now.. Also many updates to the setup system of VRC.

Mike,

Lets bring this back to life.....Does any one know if they are going to do off-road? and I think now you can get the usb controler for your remote for like $10 on their web site.
