what's the difference between playing offline and on besides having some shadow racers and a chatroom at the bottom?
It's harder to socialise with a CPU? Actually, the biggest difference IMO is exposure to all the custom tracks that other people have made. Most of the servers I've played on are not using the default tracks, so there's always something new in my experience. The track editor is really easy to use, and the Trackmania community is huge, so there's really no end of custom tracks out there to play on.

I'd like to be able to ram the bastards and try and draft off the back of opponents
Ah, the problem is that you're thinking of it as a car racing game. It's really not. Trackmania is all about You vs The Track, and not at all about You vs Them. Sure you're trying to out-do the opposition, but you do that entirely by mastering the tracks.

It would be a *completely* different game if you could interact with the other cars.

TMS is seriously one of the most enjoyable games I've played in years. Even if you don't play it for hours every day for days on end (which I did), it will stay on your hard drive and you'll easily get your money's worth by playing it now and then over a very long time.
