28.11.2016   15 comments

With Rally X we have also released a new version of the game software. Besides several bug fixes and internal improvements, version 4.1.4718 has 1 important new feature.

Pit table
When at the pit table you will now see cars running in the background. This should make sitting at your pit table a more dynamic experience. This feature will only work on tracks where your selected car class has raced before, of course... Don't expect any cars in the background on the new Rally X tracks or the other new tracks we will release early December. You can control the number of cars on the track while at the pittable in Options -> Other game options, you can set 0-5, 0 means none.

Horizonal offset
The horizontal offset range (controlled with Alt +/-) is extended from 0-100 to -100 to +100.

The new Rally X (cross) class is released today. The chassis is based on the successful 1:8 scale electric buggy. The setup has been adjusted with limited upstops to prevent the wheels going through the wheel fenders, a wider range of springs and anti-roll bars and 3 pre-defined setups ranging from easy till hard. To learn to control the Rally X car we give you 3 levels, easy, medium and hard. Of course you want to go as fast as possible, but it should also be spectacular. Time will tell what will take priority in this new class.

The Rally X body has 8 different paintjobs to chose from. 2 Wheel styles are available and to start with just 1 tire. Maybe more tires will be added in the future. The modified version comes with a selection of Tekin power, 1900KV, 2150KV and 2650KV, should be enough to get you excited. The Spec chassis comes with a 1450KV motor but has a longer gearing to get decent top speed with the Spec chassis. Only the gearing and the steering angle are adjustable in the free2play Rally X Sp... read more
