New Stuff: VRC Moves into Off Road (2262 Reads)
Posted by admin on Friday, June 29, 2007 - 07:21 AM news

We are receiving many e-mails about the off-road version after VRC staff was spotted at the Kyosho Off-Road Masters track in Germany end of April. We can now officially confirm that this is not just a rumor. However, the off-road versions (both for nitro and electric) are part of the v4 project which is under development already for over 1 1/2 year.

v4 Is a complete overhaul of VRC with a complete game and graphics engine, new game logic and structure. This is a massive project and is expected to hit the market spring 2008. The nitro and electric o­n-road versions will be released first, in the second half of 2008 followed by the nitro and electric off-road versions.

To give you an idea of what the new v4 game interface and off-road is going to look like we give you a sneak preview of the first off-road track we have modelled (yes the Kyosho Off-Road Masters track in Bischofsheim...).

Latest News: SRS Round 3 Now at DRT (1101 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, June 28, 2007 - 02:14 PM


The SRS round three will now be held at DRT. This is because 3A Raceway have not been able to get their track ready in time for this event.
This is a little like maxbashing where we have put our track up for use by others that are in a spot of bother!
This event will be held on the 15th of July on round 4 of our summer series and the extra people attending our track wont effect your final standings, the same as the local DRT members who are not racing for the SRS will not be effecting their results.
Its a normal club meeting being run by the 3A Chairman so you guys will have me to contend with this round
Please let all that are attending the SRS know that round 3 will now be held at DRT instead of 3A Raceway.

Full directions and other information can be found on our webpage at


Please remember to Pre-Book if you have not already done so at >

Race Reports: XT8 Wins Estonian Off-road Cup Rnd 2 (1481 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, June 28, 2007 - 08:52 AM

Xray Buggy

Race report by Andres Käver

Round 2 of the Estonian Off-road Cup was held on June 16 in Tartu. The weather was rather nice at 20–25°C under sunny skies. This track is almost brand new, so it’s still in development, lacking mostly jumps… it’s just a few bumps on the track. The surface is clayish, slippery and fairly dusty.

Truggy final

Everything went as planned as Janko and I pulled away from the rest of the pack. Altogether there were four XT8s in the final. I was on lap 21 when disaster struck – no more steering! The steering servo horn had come loose. Getting it fixed took some time and when I got back onto the track I was in 4th or 5th place. Janko was already gone, no hope there. But second was possible. With some pushing I had it. At the finish Janko had a 5-lap lead on me and I had 6-lap lead on 3rd place.

Final results in truggy:

1. Jaanus Kesküla XRAY XT8
2. Andres Käver XRAY XT8

3. Martti Siimsen
4. Guido Saksman
5. Anti Anton
6. Janis Ankravs
7. Marek Männing XRAY XT8
8. Antero Haljand
9. Allar Rebane XRAY XT8
10. Rando Mere

Buggy final

I was out of final, so I helped my team members. Janko started from 2nd place and Rando Mere had TQ. Rando kept to his beloved diff setup 60k-100k-950. In the middle of the race Janko was 7 secs behind Rando when the engine stalled right after refueling. Fetching the car from the end of the pits and starting it up again took some time and Janko drop some 25 secs behind of Rando. He tried to catch him but was unsuccessful.

Final results in buggy:

1. Rando Mere
2. Jaanus Kesküla XRAY XB8 EC
3. Taivo Murumäe
4. Kuldar Ilus
5. Bruno Vaher XRAY XB8 TQ
6. Toomas Ramm XRAY XB8 EC
7. Rainer Pohjala XRAY XB8 TQ

8. Jaanus Saare
9. Edgars Cipans
10. Margus Hanvere
