After almost 4 years we have decided to do a major overhaul on the skill level and racer class system. One of the biggest problems with this old system is the lack of transparancy, in fact hardly anyone understood how it worked. And it was indeed complicated. In short, in the old system we were measuring your performance relative to others in the same skill level group, if you did better than average your skill level would go up, when worse than average it went down. It was more complicated than this but in essence that is how it worked.
The new system is much simpler and more transparent. We measure your skill rating for each event, we calculate your skill level as an average of your last 5 skill ratings, and based on your current skill level at the end of a season we will change your racer class up or down or it stays the same.
CAR CLASS SPECIFIC
The first major change is that the skill level and racer class has now become car class specific. You will have a skill level and racer class for each class... read more

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.
