In another head-to-head with fellow US racer Joshua Berman it was Kevin Bacon who came out on top after 45 minutes of hard racing. Differences were very small on the fast Messina track and pitstop strategy could be a decisive factor. Both racers opted for a tire change half way and things stayed very much as they were all race, Berman leading Bacon with a 2 to 4 seconds gap. Berman was on a slightly more conservative fuel strategy, or was just consuming more fuel, so it could come down to the last fuel stop. And it did. Just 2 laps before the end Berman had to pull in for a quick splash which gave Bacon a change to take the lead. The remaining 2 laps weren't enough for Berman to close the 1 second gap. Good old Graham Raistrick completed the podium 2 laps down on the 2 frontrunners.

We are happy to announce that the new CP006-9T USB Adaptor from 9Turbo is now available in our e-shop. We are accepting orders and expect to start delivering before the end of February. Availability will be limited in the beginning, so if you are in need of a USB adaptor we advise you to order it immediately. 1 Month All-Inclusive membership is included!

http://www.vrcworld.com/eshop/product.aspx?241

The 9Turbo adaptor features 12-bit technology opposed to the 8-bit technology of the good old VRC USB adaptor. This results in 4000 steps resolution or frame rate, a significant improvement over the 8-bit adaptor, giving you an even smoother and finer controlled ride in VRC. The 9T can handle 4 channels, 1 and 2 are assigned for steering and throttle/brake, the other 2 channels can be 'mapped' for other functions like 'turnmarshal' or 'fuelstop', providing your transmitter has extra buttons.

Controller selection and calibration are all done inside VRC Pro unde 'Control options'. Follow the in... read more

LAS VEGAS PRE-WORLDS RELEASED

Today we have released a new version of the Las Vegas Worlds track: Las Vegas Pre-Worlds. This version features a much cleaner, less torn down track surface, more or less how the track was prepared before the 200+ racers were released on the track to tear it up in no time, the fate of every off-road track...

The Pre-Worlds track is much smoother and will be easier to drive consistently. As a result laptimes are expected to drop3-4 seconds.

The Las Vegas PW track will have its inaugural race in the 3rd round of the 2019 Season 1 series for 1:10 short course trucks starting February 16.

Enjoy the new track!
