    Not a bad game... its easy to play and very easy to control the truck. I dont feel its very realistic as I havent yet rolled the truck and I think I should have many times, but I like it.

    For $1... why not.

    Pretty cool game for 99 cents but I completed every race in every difficulty setting in a couple hours. A little bit too easy, but definitely worth what it costs. I got it for the iphone4 first and it's ok, but not nearly as cool as it is on my iPad. The real rewards prizes are a pretty cool bonus, I've got a couple other racing apps that have real rewards as well, and I've won a couple hats and a shirt just for getting the longest jump and fastest lap and best total time in a race. It's a cool bonus cuz you won't even know you got a record until they send you an email to ask where to ship the prize.

    Ive completed the amateur season. I dont have alot of time but its fun. Im glad I bought it. Im just starting the intermediate season now. My truck appears to be slower than the others as per most video games but I can still beat them if I hit the corners just right.

    Think they would make more money if they would release it to Android users. Almost positive there are most Android users out there then iPhone.

    It's because the system runs out of memory so it kicks you back to the home screen. Power down your device, power it up again and it should work fine. Every time a new app is installed, the device should be powered down and started back up. Just like a desktop computer when it says the system needs to be restarted to complete installation. Also you need to read up how to close background applications cuz the system has a set amount of memory and can run out if too many applications are running in the background. Every time you run an app and then press the home button, that app stays tuning in the background so it will boot faster next time you use it and start from where you left off, but if you run ten apps then try to run a memory hungry app like short course, it'll just run out of memory and kick you back to the home screen until you reboot the device to close all background apps or use the method of closing apps from the home screen. On my jail broken iPad with 4.3.3 firmware I have a drop down menu that allows me to easily kill background processes, for a non-jailbroken device I believe you double click the home button and a row of background apps will show along the bottom, then you push and hold on on of the icons that appeared until a little RED circle with a line appears on all the icons in that row. Then just press that lil RED circle to close down the app. The less you have in there, the faster your device will run, and your memory hungry apps like this Traxxas one won't kick you out all the time. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    I played it straight through as soon as I got the app, but right off the start I bought the pro 4x4 truck, the 2wd light truck, and the engine and tire upgrades. The pro 4x4 truck with the upgraded tires and engine smokes everything else in the game with ease once you get used to the speed of it around the turns. The top speed of the pro 4x4 with upgrades is well over 150 compared to the trucks that come with the app that only hit around 80-100. Ive beat every race in this game and haven't even hit the 1 hour total playing time achievement yet.

    Read the system requirements at the bottom of the purchase page and see if your device and firmware are fully compatible with the game. If that's all good then uninstall the game from ur device and redownload and install it again. It's free to download and install again once you've purchased it.

    I think an Android version ASAP would be well received wouldn't it? And one for Windows too.

    I have a iPhone 4. If it's not compatible with that then whats the point of it even being in the app store? Lol

    I will try deleting and downloading again.

    I checked it out, and it looks okay. One thing that is a tad fishy is reviews. I noticed several apps on iTunes do this, but somehow get themselves false "good ratings". I'm not sure if they create extra accounts to rate the app with or what but I've seen it before where too many people write perfect reviews using the best grammar and the 5 stars while the other half is bad reviews. Not saying this was done on the Traxxas racing app, but it's something I look out for as I observed it in some not-so-great apps.

    Apparently there is a conspiracy afoot. I won every race in amateur and intermediate. But as soon as I went to the pro season I came last in every race. The other trucks are so much faster so I guess the idea is that you HAVE to buy the upgrades to be even mildly competitive as a pro. That's dissapointing. Games still fun and I like the actual game play, but I don't think I should have to BUY upgrades to be competitive.

    Just my little rant for the day
