Default 1/8th offroad

When are we going to see this class in VRC Pro?? I really, really want to see 1/8 e-buggy, and the ability to make custom tracks, i think that would be a huge gain for VRC Pro.

Bump. PLEASE add this,1/10th SC and 1/8 E-buggy are fast growing classes, look at how many RC manufacturers have released 1/8 E-buggies in the past year!

1:8 nitro buggies is in the works right now, plus more tracks like Silver Dollar.
1:8 electric buggies may be next, first need to get this class rolling!

Hopefully no more tracks like that pile of crap called mikes hobbyshop 2. I havent turned it on in a month after buying that terrible track. One of the tracks from realrace would have been a big improvement, and we all see how well that went over.

Mike's HS 2 isn't bad. I love that track, I like the challenge of the more technical tracks so it is definitely one of my favorites of all the off road tracks so far

As long as you model the 1/8 buggy after the worst handling buggy available I will like it. Make it really light and super loose in the back end. If it's bad over bumps that would be great too.

I actually like HS2 as well. It's making me better at the game. It helps me get used to the awful handling of the SC truck.

Seriously, can we have the option to add weight to the truck? I realize some are extremely adept with this style of handling but it doesn't suit my driving style at all. Yes I've tried other recommended setups, about 15 of them and none were to my liking.

The new tire options that were released today really help with the handling imo.

/\ agreed with both posts. I have the luxury of running at Mike's every week and VRC does a great job of capturing both layouts. In real life we have had a few "go-to" tires as the track can be very inconsistant due to the clay composition. The new tires help with this alot.

Also on the weight, it makes the trucks feel very "floaty" no matter what I do as well. This makes the track feel tighter than it really is (the landing area after the 3 table tops, and double double in the center of MHS1) even nursing the truck over the obstacles.

That said, in the 2 months I have had VRC I have become a better driver. Cleaner, more consistent lines, less marshaling needed, and learning racing lines quicker. I went from being a middle of the pack driver to closer to the front every time.

I look forward to the 1/8 scale release (a Christmas present to us all? )!
