it best for help your practice,
with this way, VRC PRO can increse your real racing skill.


it depend on your transmitter & receiver mode.
if your RC USB buy from virtualrc.com ...

VRC-3 USB, it cheap,
it good for receiver AM, FM, FM-PCM, 2.4G normal mode only.

VRC-3NT USB, it better,
it good for AM, FM, FM-PCM, FM-HRS , 2.4G both normal and HRS mode
Thanks! I purchased the 3NT. Just waiting for it to be delivered.

VRC PRO ... my TIP of this day.

More Official Race ... More Race Rewards. <<< old TIP
More Official Race ... More Race Ranking. <<< new TIP

i race on my race planing, so i get about 4 vEuro every week.

last 2 week , i get 8.5 vEuro


your Race Rewards depend on your Race Position.


and sure, More of your Official Race, you will get more race Ranking.

this's my last VRC PRO ranking, on Oct 14 , 2011
WOW... this week i goto TOP TEN rank.

It will improve drastically. Just enter everything you can. Plus at the end of the month you accumulate enough km's for about $3 more. Theres enough free stuff to get without spending the virtual money that you dont really need it unless you just want to buy another track or a non spec, name brand car. I bought an xray and a 5.5 Novak, and I hardly ever use it.

Ill stick to the spec setup for a while. im only managing low 12's on vrc carpet 2 and i cant go more than 10 laps without hitting somthing and getting a 15-16...

logged 600+ km with the rumblepad and noticed a pretty substantial improvment in my driving. when i get back out with the real cars ill have a better idea of planning my lines and putting the car in the right place at the right speed to execute them.

just wish it had more than touring cars. thats where id like to get the most race time, but we dont have a perm facility. one day/week of racing and it will be 90% pancars over the next 9 months of winter.

This is interesting, I also noticed recently when trying to run on a monitor with higher resolution that even if the video isn't choppy, if your system is stressed, the car feels like it is not handling right. So make sure you system is up to running the settings you have, as it can affect your racing.

Well I just got out of the game with a lil bit of frustration...Tried out my USB controller and the car acts like it isn't getting full throttle or full steering lock. I tried recalibrating, changing my steering/throttle throws, some DX tweak utility...just couldn't get it running right.
