That is pretty damn good by using keyboard...I can barely run a straight line by using KB.

Should get the adaptor it is worth the money, you go alot quicker and this year they are having money prizes and they are giving away serpent 710 in a winternats race in about 2 weeks.
So you can win the money back in prizes you spent on the adaptor.

I have a question.....when you guys running 1/8th.........(or may be 1/10th, but 1/8th gave me a lot more problem then 1/0th).....does you guys use the RADIO SETTING (just like the real RC racing) for the VRC...?

I find the 1/8th are too "tweaky" on the steering....and no matter how I setup the car, or use the listed setup from other driver's spec...it is still NOT as controllable as a real thing...

I find its better to change setup rather than things on the control as your going to be going on 20 different tracks you can't keep changing things on control you forget whats what for each track.

So i make a setup for each track and leave the control settings at stock except i have dual rate at 95 and brakes at 24 as i use one way but thats it.

I never found steering to be tweaky though unless i stuffed around alot with setup.

Try to find a good neutral point on control to work for each car and track and adjust setup to suit.

Maybe useless to tell, but don't forget to also upgrade your tracks, if you have upgraded to a newer release.....

VRC is like Real RC. Meaning, that if you want more fuel mileage, make your clutch engage faster. Adjust the clutch nut and clutch gap.

To get better fuel economy:

-Smaller Clutch Gap
-Smaller Clutch Preload
-Larger Pinions
-Smaller Spurs
-Bigger Tires

This things make you sacrifice acceleration with top-speed. [RPM Wise]. RPM is basicly where the fuel milleage is consumed.

I am just starting to read about VRC and I am blown away...you can actually make all the adjustments to your vrc car as if it were real??? How close to realistic are the adjustments? Can you pick real cars like mtx 3 and v one RRR, etc????
