Bottom Line: A large app-controlled car that’s difficult to steer, slow, but a load of fun. An app update to make the control of the car better would go a long way to adding even more fun.

The Moto TC Rally car is a lot larger than I thought it would be. I was envisioning a 3-5″ long car, but in reality it’s closer to ten inches long. It’s well-made and featuring extra large tires, rear wheel drive, flexible skin, and a cool ground effect lighting feature. The iPhone or iPod touch controlled racer is a blast to drive around.

Single player mode allows control of the car as users normally would a remote control car. I did find that the controls took a long time to get used to. Tilt control was a bit slow to respond, but touch control on the screen generally worked better.

A fun gift for the kid of any age. Who doesn’t like a remote controlled car?
