Late October 2013 the ghost and goblins are dusting off their costumes for Halloween and VRC is breaking out the bash pit for some series races. The turnout for this week’s race was amazing with a total of 376 entries over the six categories’. The bash pit track is set up to run two different configurations, short and long. The short configuration allows for 11 second lap times and the long version gives it up at a rate of 14 seconds per lap. Both tracks are very small but they are extremely fun and competitive.

Championship Season

Virtual RC vs Real RC
I would like to take a moment to give the positive and negative points of VRC and Real RC. First I will start with the positive. 

Virtual RC
VRC is fun, racing online is quick a person can literally race anytime 24 hours a day 7 days a week. VRC Cars are perfectly tuned every time, they never have to be cleaned and when you crash the parts stay intact.

Real RC
Real RC Racing has many positives, there are great people at the track, track conditions are affected by weather and change throughout the day. Track food is always good everything tastes better with a little dirt in it. “Custom Painted Bodies.” Making new friends, and just getting out of the house sometimes is a great reason to go to the track.

Why bother with the negative, I’m sure everyone has their own list of negatives I will keep mine to myself. VRC is a perfect... read more
