Virtual Racing Industries is proud to announce that leading r/c car manufacturer Kyosho Corporation from Japan has signed up for the VRC Partnership for v4 Professional. Kyosho and VRI have agreed to integrate their on-road line of chassis in v4, the off-road cars will be decided once VRI is ready to demonstrate their off-road version of VRC later this year. Modelling on the Kyosho V-One RRR Team Edition has already been completed. Next are Kyosho’s latest World Championship winning 1:8 nitro burner Evolva M3 2008, and their electric sedan challenger Stallion TF-5. The 3 Kyosho chassis will be released with the launch of v4 at the end of 2008.
The 3rd in our monthly columns from VRC mentions that the new v4 RC Speedway has been completed and has turned out to be a real show case for VRC. The track is setting a new standard in r/c racing with its new features such as the electronic track banners and the massive scoreboard. Permission has been granted by Virtura officials for exclusive use of the large bill board on the fly-over of the motorway for product advertising of VRC partners. The banked corner has new entry and exit profiles for smoother and thus better racing. Special developed asphalt has been used to create maximum grip and low tire wear conditions. Tony West, responsible for the design of the VRC World complex and the tracks, has paid special attention to wider run off areas on turns 1 and 2 and around the perimeter to make the track more forgiving. Furthermore the inside curbs, known from the old oval to be responsible for the car spinning out unexpectedly in the fast sweepers, are no longer applied.
Virtual Racing Industries is happy to announce that Team XRAY has signed up as one of the exclusive VRC industry partners. The XRAY NT1 nitro racer and the T2-008 electric chassis will be made available in VRC v4 Professional. Such branded chassis will only be available after signing up as full VRC member and can be obtained with VRC-dollars earned by participating in official racing events. The 1:8 scale off-road buggy and truggy racers are likely to be included at a later stage to complete their off-road line-up in VRC.
