Default RC Crew Chief

Has anyone tried the RC Crew Chief software programme for an off road application. I had a quick look at the demo but it seems to be more on road even though the principals would be the same.

Had a quick caht with the owner, Billl, and he said that Off Road chassis selections are at least are a year off. However, it is a very trick program and still applies to off road. With some simple tools you can create an off road chassis.

Very cool and unique product.

Just looked at that site and watched all the vids he posted,

Pretty cool and a ton of useful info, once you factor in all the base line numbers.

Not sure how the offroad chassis componet (when it's done) will differ, but a cool tool to play with at 2 am if nothing else.

The program will work for OffRoad. It is setup to allow you to create your own models. You just need to measure up the suspension geometry, shock mounts, wheel base ect. and punch in the numbers. There is a AE 8.2 buggy model available on the website.

Working hard to build the Off Road Model Library. Just added models for AE RC8.2e and Yokomo Bmax4 (donated by a generous user) to the website.

Up next is Mugen MBX-6T Nitro Truggie. :-)

If anyone has that giving feeling and would like to contribute a model let me know. Tis the Season.

Just means that if a RC3 model for your chassis doesn't exist on the website, so you have created one then you can contribute it to the on-line library where it will be available to everyone.

I have been messing around with this and find it very fascinating. I am curious what the desired numbers are for an offroad car. Particularly a 1:8 nitro buggy.

Best advice is to start from a base setup, either the kit setup or something you are currently running that works. Where RC3 shines is showing you what happens when you make a change relative to your current settings so you can get everything possible out of the chassis.

I could suggest some base numbers but I would need to know what you are racing. Otherwise I'm kind of throwing darts blindfolded.
