Friday April 21st a new carpet indoor track will be released: MB Models Raceway.

This track design came 2nd in the 2016 Carpet Indoor Track design competition and was entered by VRC racing legend Graham Raistrick. Graham's design wasn't his own but he thought it was time VRC had a proper board-style indoor carpet track so he used MB Models design. In stead of fitting the track into the VRC Carpet hall 3D artist Tony West recreated the original MB Models hall as well. With a length of 130m it's a medium size indoor track with average traction.

The new venue will be part of the 2017 Season 1 racing series for 1:10 and 1:12 electric cars and will soon prove to be a very popular track for avid electric racers from around the world.

MB Models Raceway will be immediately available on April 21st for All-Inclusive members. Free2Play members can purchase the track in-game with vEuros which are available in the VRC e-shop.

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO VRC PRO CONTENT

13.04.2017   5 comments

In an effort to make VRC Pro more attractive to FREE2PLAY members from a cost point of view, we have decided to make very significant price reductions to tracks, chassis and components. All these changes come into effect immediately.

PRICES OF TRACKS, CHASSIS AND COMPONENTS REDUCED 40-75%

We have made drastic price reductions on all the content that can be purchased in-game. Tracks and chassis have been reduced on average by 50%, all other components like motors, bodies, tires etc. by a massive 60-80%. With these price reductions VRC Pro has become a lot cheaper for Free-2-Play members who prefer to purchase the content when they want it, and build up their collection of tracks, cars and components step by step. This content is available directly in the game and can be paid for with vEuros (which can be purchased in the VRC Pro e-shop).

Tracks:
Large off-road €5.95
Small off-road €4.95
Rally-X €4.95
On-road €4.95
Carpet indoor €3.95
Oval €3.95

Chassis:
1:10 €3.95
1:12 €3.95

2017 SEASON 2 IDEAS ???

14.03.2017   40 comments

We are still more than 3 months away from Season 2, but it's time to start discussing race formats and schedules for Season 2 based on the experiences so far with Season 1. Participation in some of the classes is down which calls for some serious re-thinking of the whole event structure.

CLASSES
I am thinking of some radical changes to create more focus on events and certain classes.

CLASSES
One of the problems we are facing is class dilution. We offer so many classes now that participation is spread thin over all these classes, resulting in fewer and fewer participants per event. Just like what has happened in real r/c over the past 20-30 years. Of course we must try to get participation up by getting new members into VRC and get them racing. But we could also look at reducing the number of classes we are racing each season.

For example:
Season 1: nitro buggies - sc truck - 1:10 nitro sedans - 1:12 electric sportscars
Season 2: electric buggies - rally X - 1:8 nitro sportscars - 1:10 electric to... read more
