3DS RELEASE POSTPONED

29.07.2013   32 comments

We have decided to postpone the release of the new 3D Suspension system (3DS) after we ran into a few unexpected bugs during our final 'release candidate' test last week. These issues are not directly related to the 3DS system and physics themselves, but the new system is having some unexpected impact on deeper collision and turn-marshaling structures which need to be resolved before we can release this to you.

We are very sorry about this delay but we hope that you will understand that we can't release a new development to you if we can't be 100% confident that the new development will meet your (high) expectations. We will try to release the 3DS update later this week before the start of Round 3 of the 2013 Season 3 short course truck event at Silver Dollar Raceway. If for some reason we will not be able to release before this event we will move it forward until after the finish of Round 3.

Thanks for your understanding,

Pieter

JULY UPDATE: RACER CLASSES AND TV REPLAY

RACER CLASSES
As previously announced, the event structure has been updated with 'racer classes' Club, Sport and Pro. All the official events will automatically be split up in these 3 classes. The current VRC Pro members will be assigned to a racer class which corresponds to their skill level. The skill level is something we measure in the background, but basically it is a system that compares you to with other racers participating in an event who have the same skill level, if you do better than average your skill level increases, if you don't your skill level decreases. There is quite a bit of margin in the skill levels, so you don't jump from one level to another and back easily. The way we calculate the skill level is much more sophisticated and elaborate than we can explain here but trust me that we have thought about this deeply and that it is fair.

The purpose of introducing the racer classes is clear: provide fair racing to all our racers on 3 different levels. Not everyone is a Pro or aspi... read more

Changes in Season 3

We have implemented some significant changes for Season 3. The most important one is the introduction of 3 racer classes: Club, Sports and Pro. The class you race in will be based on the skill level we measure during all your racing activities. When you do better than average compared to other racers with the same skill level your rating goes up, when you perform less your rating goes down. Of course you will s... read more
