Its the Sorex Pre Mount from Schumacher, with red medium insert, this combo should be good for quite a few runs

People comparing VRC and Real RC have to be Joking.

The only thing VRC is good for is attempting to be consistent and hitting your lines.

But car setup, Car feel, realisim, and many other things are completely wrong in the game.

In the game people have the opportunity to try evey setup change/combination possible to get that extra .1 .2 or whatever. You do not have that opportunity in real rc. you get a set amount of practice rounds and a you dont get any do overs in qualifying or the mains.

This makes it about as unrealistic as possible IMO as that is what makes Real RC tough. you have to know your car, know what to do to adapt to the track and changing conditions and you have to do all that in a couple runs, all while learing the quickest way around the track, tire prep and a variety of other variables that do not exist in VRC.

Serpent doesn't have a huge team to help him out.

The kid will be lucky to make the D main, IMO of course. And that would be very lucky.

Exactly my point........


The current VRC cars and setups are a bit off, I do agree on that....... at least in set ups and some of the physics.

but when you step up to the driver stand with a couple EXTRA hours of track time under your belt.....There is NO joking about that.

It can be a wonderful training tool for people not accustomed to spending travel time and money on going to a track three four times a week.

sorry to de-rail the thread.
