Virtual Racing Industries officially announce a launch date of 1:8 nitro off-road buggies hitting VRC Pro. Set for the 18th of December the latest addition to the RC car simulator comes right in time for the Holiday period. Together with this launch VRC Pro will also release four full-size off-road tracks; Psycho Nitro Blast ’12, Speed Paradise Buenos Aires, IBR Padova and the 2013 IFMAR Worlds edition of Silver Dollar Raceway. Other full size off-road tracks planned for 2014 are the NeoBuggy Harper Adams track ’13, the Pattaya 2010 Worlds track, the 2013 version of the Psycho Nitro Blast and the 2013 C-netic track.
After releasing short course trucks in September 2012, and despite all the experience gained with developing the short course class, it took over a year to develop the new 1:8 nitro buggy class. To support the ultra realistic fully animated suspension, a completely new 3-dimensional suspension geometry (3DS) was developed. A direct spin-off of the new 3DS technology was a much more accurate suspension physics which enabled VRC to introduce new set-up features for the off-road cars like anti-squat, bump-steer and true Ackermann to name just a few. Virtual Racing Industries are confident that the new 1:8 nitro buggies will be a great addition to VRC Pro and will please the huge following this class of RC racing has world-wide.
Jump and fly like a Pro
Even more so than with on-road cars, VRC Pro will help beginners, average racers even pros to hone their skills, especially the air-borne skills which would require you to take quite big risks if done with your real buggy. Flight control is key in off-road racing, especially with the jumps getting bigger, more spectacular and more risky all the time. With VRC Pro you can practice your take-off, pitch control and pointing the car jump after jump, lap after lap until you feel confident enough to try this with your real buggy without fear to take all the corners off your car.
