The VRC Worlds schedule is out, and what a month of exciting virtual r/c racing lies ahead of us. Six major events on 3 exciting tracks.

We have compared the first few laps and some laps towards the end to compare speed, racing line, and also very important, the slip angle of the cars. Now this last is very difficult to measure, in fact there is no scientific data available so it is mainly guessing. Or is it? What we did in the past to study this is to play videos in slow motion but then reversed. This gives you an excellent view of the real slip angle of the car. In this video we have done this for the real and the virtual car and guess what: also these slip angles are extremely close.
And why is slip angle important? Because it is a very important factor concerning the 'feel' of the car. The other factors are acceleration and braking (trigger finger), initial turn-in into the... read more
