    no they shouldn't they should work on they real stuff and worry about Improving there cars and boats. they already have simulation driving, if anything traxxas should run an online race for points every few months Using the Existing software and controller out there http://rcvehicles.about.com/gi/o.htm...ame/games.aspx here is the VRC and traxxas should make a online points race that like 10$ to enter and it tests your skill, puts you in the right league and if you win your league you get like a traxxas 100$ gift card to use for anything out there

    True but the game play is awesome.

    Traxxas will have already thought about a video game. It will be on a big 'list' of things they have ideas about.

    The things to think about would be

    1. Is there enough interest in the TORC series yet to have a successful video game out? It would have to be really big in the USA and have a fair amount of international interest to make a really good profit.

    2. Would people buy a video game with only TORC SC racing in it because of the drivers, or would they sacrifice that and have a game that has many types of vehicles and races but not all the drivers.

    3. Is an actual RC simulator or racing game first on the list before a TORC one?

    I would buy the game if there was one, but it would have to be a game with great graphics and gameplay to be worth it, as not everyone is aware of TORC and the only way they will be aware is if the game would be made well enough to get a lot of internet and magazine coverage.

    Okay everyone, i have gotten a reply from TRAXXAS. Here is what they said:

    I'd buy that, I doubt that there would be one made for the original Playstation or Sega Dreamcast like I have but we will have a X-Box 360 and Wii by the 25th!

    Been awhile since This was last posted in I was just wanting to say that there pretty much already is a TORC series video game. Its the DiRT series games. DiRT has the Lucas Oil series in the career mode with the Powatatomi tundras, and other licensed paintjobs. DiRT 2 has pretty much the same, just not the licensed paint jobs and Lucas Oil Series.

    if it were a rc simulator that you could bash around in various "worlds" or "maps" i would definatly buy it. it would be neat if u could swap motor and gear ratios too. also it should come with a traxxas controller!

    maybe well see Traxxas TORC series in the up and coming Dirt 3. still in development and ken block has a deal with traxxas anyways, why not include Traxxas owned TORC series. haha maybe even include a mini game where your bashing around some Slashes or the new Rally

    Now create some terrain have to negotiate through and some jumps along with perhaps a skate park in it and I might consider it...

    actually, there is an rc truck sim out there. Head over to http://www.3impact.com. Its quite fun. You only have one choice of vehicle, 4x4 Monster Truck(Stampede 4x4, E-Maxx, Savage....etc). If your good with photoshop you can go into the files and just change the jpeg and youll have your own custom paint. The area you can use is quite big, ranges from a full loop, many skatepark like jumps, offroad obstacle, dirt hills and more.Realism is added by the ability to break off wheels and suspension parts. Im sure is somebody had the nerdpower they could hook up a traxxas controller. definitally check it out guys

    The TORC series would make a great video game. Dirt is a good game but it only has three tracks and three racing classes in the lucas oil racinng series. the TORC series has 11 classes including the sportsman classes and TORC has 6 tracks. The game could also include some baja type racing and the pikes peak hill climb (pikes peak is included on the 2011 schedule for TORC) maybe even some rallycross(another featured class at some of the events in this years TORC schedule). The career mode would start you off as a beginning racer in the classic race cars (My personal favorite) and progress through the classes until you become a pro 4x4 driver. It could also include a mini game where you can drive traxxas rc's. The game could be modeled after the nascar games or it could be modeled after the first Dirt game. Either way I think the game would do pretty good on the market. The game would have to include actual drivers from the classes and licensed paint schemes. There should be an multiplayer feature as well.

    +1, pay some other guys and jump in on a good game, even if it's not dirt in particular just sponsor a good racing game and go from there. It would probably cost less than paying a smaller company develop a new game, which won't sell as good because gamers haven't heard of it. I think it would be totally awesome if you could hook up your 2.4 GHZ radio to an xbox and take over, I know there's computer hookups to other radios but the xbox 360 is already 2.4 ghz...

    If it was well done, I'd be on board. If it was just another generic, low-quality off-road racer... no thanks. There are enough of those already.
