SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE THURSDAY DEC. 12

12.12.2013   Category: Site news

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 scheduled maintenance will take approx. 5 hours, we expect to be back online towards end of the afternoon (local European time GMT + 1).

Because of the new media structure your first update will be big, approx. 1 GB so be prepared for this to take some time.

Thank you for your patience.

Pieter

Can we have the servos moving a little quicker with the RX8 Gen2 since it has a high voltage BEC?

I increased the SC tire grip a tiny bit after listening for so long to people wishing it had more. That's the only change that was made on the SC.

If you like the SC, you guys are really going to love the buggy. :-)


I love the extra grip! Especially at Rhein and silver dollar. Thanks!

Hi,
after update , every time i try to do some EVENT > solo practice in bashpit short the sim loads to pit-table and crashes while it switches to track view.
If i choose race instead of practice it 's working

By the way car SC Asso 4WD 13,5 feels completly different increased grip and shorter jump distances double double o MHS1 isn't working clean anymore :-(
maybe same toe and more tire grip slows the car down too much ...

Personally since the update I must say I'm disappointed! It s too much grip, I no longer recognize the behavior of an off-road frame. My lap times have become very bad, the chassis behaves Strange to! And it is impossible for me to be regular as the frame behaves in a funny way, I am unpleasantly surprised! Sorry but this is what I found;


I am wondering what setup you are using? Myself, I absolutely LOVE the update, I don't feel that it's traction per say, but rather that, the tires feel sticky now, exact to real Short Course wheels, where as before, the tires felt and handled like a set of hard plastic tires. I did find Silver D to be overly sticky, and I had to lower the S/R on my TX so that I wouldn't keep steering sharp and blowing around. At this point my buddy pointed out to me, Silver Dollar was STICKY as HELL for real,.. I guess they covered the track with sugar, or maybe something similar to sugar.(just what I heard, I have no real idea). That mixing with the clay, and humidity, then sitting in the hot sun, making the track hard as, and sticky as tarmac. I heard racers where going through 3 sets of tires or more throughout the race weekend.

Anyhow, the way I see it, the default setup was configured to feel as close as real, but with the old,.. (HARD PLASTIC) tires. Now, with some real SC tires to work with, I can see the setup needing some minor tweaking to feel correct. In the meantime, try lowering the steering angle, and see if that helps! :)

I love VRC Pro. Where else could you get the "bang for the buck" that VRC gives? Only 5 more sleeps til the buggies come out!
Merry Christmas to All!

I really like the update,
the game preforms a lot better.

Are the free motors no longer free? I was using a 4.5 for the 1/12 worlds and now I can not use it.
