Vibrating wireless controllers
ARC AIR comes with wireless controllers - roam around the track without crossing wires with your opponent. The controllers contain a rumble pack which alerts you to race features such as if your car needs to pit or the weather changes, plus a braking button for more control. Never miss a pit and customise throttle profiles to perfectly suit your hand controller to your racing style. The ARC AIR wireless hand controllers are powered by 2x AA batteries.

Race incidents
If you’re unlucky enough to experience a race incident, make sure you get to the pits as soon as possible!

Throttle Profile customisation
Fine-tune and customise the acceleration characteristics of your car by selecting from 5 pre-configured acceleration profile graphs. Combined with the added ability to limit the maximum power, you can completely customise your own hand throttle characteristics to suit your particular racing style. 

New Arcade racing mode
As if seven race modes (such as drag racing, tournament and endurance) weren't enough, ARC AIR has a brand new race mode - Arcade. A fun and fast race mode. Pick up powerups to influence your opponent’s race, slowing them to a crawl. Time it right though and you can grab some invincibility to carry on racing at top speed.

Weather conditions
Choose whether to the let the weather influence your race. Racing conditions might worsen or improve and you have to make sure you have the correct tyres. Visit the pits quickly to avoid tyre blowouts.
