Default Re: Real Race G2 now has Revelation Track

Aiight guys, I was asking all these questions so I could start building a copy of Revelation track into Real Race G2 simulator. I don't know how many of you use it, but it's actually a pretty good little tool for practice.

However, the track design process is TEDIOUS, so I asked hank hagquist over at hobbytalk/teamrcv to give it a shot and he's just finished it!

You can download the track here

http://www.rrg2.com/


It seems like the center circles have too much elevation but hank says he made them that way to keep you from just hopping over them (if they are too low RR let's you jump them without upsetting the car enough to simulate real life).

Give it a whirl - hank did a nice job and the track is a blast to drive!
hahaha....Wow....Does it really feel like running the real thing?
ROAR should think about holding cyber races in the internet for guys who cannot afford to travel. ...that would be really cool.

What stuff (software, hardware, etc.) do you need to run that track?

it feels closer to running the real thing than anything else. You can setup a car in RR to handle like your car, and for the most part the suspension changes do what they're supposed to do.

It is kinda funny when you think about it, RR is a PC simulator that simulates a RC hobby that simulates real racing, which is itself, just an escape for real life.

I plan on traveling to the nats but if we setup online racing too we dang sure don't want ROAR running the show!

The software is hardware intensive you need a decent graphics card and at least a 600mhz or better cpu for multiplayer.

manufacturer's info can be found at www.realrace.com

The cheapest place to get it may be towerhobbies.

It comes with a old futaba style pistol grip controller for around 90 bucks.

This is the second version out so I don't think the online racing community has built up for it yet, but I know there are people racing it multiplayer and you can find them through the multiplayer search interfaces in the game. You can always host a multiplayer race and communicate the details through rctech if you have a decent connection.

Default Controller options

Guys;

Has anyone figured out how to change the transmitter yet. Might not be too hard to figure out. Just a thought.

pops serpent makes an vrc adapter that is supposed to allow you to use your own transmitter on your PC. I for the life of me can never find it though. Supposedly with this, you can use your transmitter for anything that a steering wheel or joystick is used for in other games as well.


Traxxas also sells a cheap pistol style controller you can buy from rcboyz on ebay for 50 bucks but it's not as good as the futaba one that comes with real race.

The VRC-1 works wonderfully - I've got one and I use my M8 with it. The big problem. . .it's been discontinued.

They are in development of the VRC-2 but it is planned that it will only be used with their upcoming VRC game (Virtual RC) with is in-friggin-credible. I've been on the beta team for about a year or so now and it is incredible.

They have the Cinci track and I'm asking them to make Rev.

The drawing above looks too short for Rev. . .it is 100x200 - is it just perspective?

wow - you're pretty perceptive boomer. Yeah it's only 175 foot as that is a limitation of track-building in real race. Will you sell me your VRC...pretty pleeeze!!!!!!!!!!


I read about that vrc2 but they've been promising it's release for what - over a year now? The folks on mytsn don't think it's coming anytime soon.

Patella the only thing missing are the train tracks across the street to the left along with the accompanying locomotives thundering by! That's the only sound that drowns out the buzz of a bunch of 1/8th scales on the track! Next time I'm there, I'll find out some realistic lap times on the "new" layout for you so you can see how you're doing.

i'm on my way to revalations to practice. they have night
racing but will just pit my friend for the night race.
i hope that they will lay out the track at least 2 months
in advance so that the track will develop a groove by the
time the nats are on.
