BUGGIES ARE GO

It has been a long wait but they are here: 1:8 scale nitro buggies. It has taken our development team over a year to come up with a nitro buggy that is as close to the real thing as can be. With the help of world class buggy racers David Ronnefalk, David Joor and Ricardo Rabitti plus our valued beta testing team, our physics specialist Todd “Doc” Wasson has been able to develop the buggy from scratch to a responsive and realistic behaving nitro buggy.

To support the animated suspension and steering, new technology had to be developed to render all these parts in real time without killing the frame rate. Tony West has come up with a photo-realistic modeled chassis, the NX-8, and a host of generic and branded components from Proline, BittyDesign, Avid and AKA. More chassis and components will follow in the future upon request of manufacturers.

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE THURSDAY DEC. 12

12.12.2013   56 comments

Today we will perform scheduled maintenance on our servers to prepare for a major update. This is NOT the release of the new 1:8 nitro buggy, that update is scheduled for Wednesday Dec. 18th.

Durining this maintenance period we will update the media structure of VRC Pro. This new structure will cut the total size of VRC Pro to almost half, from 1.8 GB to just under 1 GB at present. With the new media structure the regular updates that may take place when you start VRC Pro will become much smaller and thus quicker. The new media structure also enhances the graphics performance especially on computers using lower end graphics cards.

During this update we will also release a number of new products, like a whole range of Reedy motors and an upgrade of the Tekin Redline motors and RS speedcontrollers to their new Gen 2 version. These new versions replace the older versions so if you are using Tekin products in VRC Pro you will find the new Gen 2 products automatically in your car at next use!

The schedule... read more
