We have released another HD video comparing our latest virtual track Silver Dollar 2015 and the real Silver Dollar track where AMain.com hosted the 2015 ROAR Fuel Offroad Nats at the end of June. The comparison video shows Ryan Lutz driving his Tekno NB48.3chassis and 2014 VRC World Champion SC Truck Chris Sturdy from Australia driving the Intercept NX8-R chassis.
Look for yourself and see the astounding realism the VRC Pro team has achieved with this high-end r/c racing sim. Previous comparison videos showed similar realism and this is not a coincidence. The tracks are modelled very precisely and combined with the extreme accuracy of the vehicle dynamics and physics engine, the result is simply spectacular, track after track we prove this...

It looked like Series leader Malinski had the race covered at Round 11 of Season 1 at NEO14, but as so often in off-road racing, you've got to stay out of trouble to make it to the finish line first. The whole 20 minute A-Main he battled with Austrian Martin Wollanka for the lead, and as he was hoping for a 1-stop fuel strategy he was looking to walk away with another win until the last 3 laps of this race. His fuel strategy didn't work out and a very late pitstop 30 seconds before the end dropped him back right on Wollanka's bumper. Tobias Isacson blew it right at the start and had to race all the way from the back of the field and managed to secure the 3rd podium place after a hard race with Fredrik Boden and Thomas Engman. Watch the video to see how this A-Main unwinded.

We have published the racing calendar for Season 2 which starts on July 11.
2015 SEASON 2 SERIES
Between the end of Season 1 and the start of Season 2 there will be 1 week pause to allow for the skill level adjustments based on Season 1 race results. Racers can then set their new racer class before the start of the new season. You can always opt for a higher racer class than what your skill level indicates, i.e. when your skill rating indicates Club you may opt to race in Sport or even Pro if you feel confident and comfortable with that.
SKILL LEVEL SYSTEM REVISED
We have revised the skill level system to make it more transparent and fair. Currently it is based on your relative performance measured against other racers who have the same skill level. If you did better you would gain some points, if you did worse you would loose some poins. This suystem looked at all events indiscriminate of racing class.
The new system will measure and adjust... read more
