Important Hotfix and RCTrackBuilder Visualization Update14 days ago

Over the past few days, the track Save feature in our tool for creating track layout mockups RCTrackBuilder wasn't working correctly. Today's update fixes this important issue and we apologize for any inconvenience caused while working with track layouts!

In addition, we also have made a small enhancement to the layout visualization by removing the extra edge (see the screenshot below). And now not only turns are free from unnecessary visual artifacts, but even track crossings are displayed correctly!

RC Model Plate Numbers and Stickers of Your Favorite Brands!17 days ago

Perhaps the current update will be completely unexpected for someone, and long-awaited for other ones. But anyway, we have been preparing this one for several years, yes, that's right, sometimes quite a long time passes before the idea comes alive! But we are happy to announce that now every user of RCGarage has his/her own studio of stickers, which can be printed out in one click right from the interface.

In addition to stickers of chassis and tuning parts manufactures we have implemented a brand new type of a sticker - a Plate Number sticker! Who said RC models shouldn't have its own plates? Here is what they look like:

Each plate number contains the following information:

  1. QR code which contains a link to the web page of a particular RC model in RCGarage. Thus, having such sticker on the body shell and a phone with a camera, you can immediately go to the page of this model! This will not only make it much easier to share information between friends and other folks from the rc hobby, but also will save owners of the large garages from having them to scroll through the page to find the model they need (to manage settings, mileage, etc.);
  2. RC Model Name;
  3. Country Tag and Flag representing the owner's Origin.

Note: The decals file contains edges for cutting each individual sticker in a such way that printing on special equipment will automatically make the edges straight.

Linkage of Personal RC Garage and a Profile page plus more20 days ago

Recently, we have made quite a few updates dedicated to RC racing aspect of the hobby, but as you know, our project is devoted to a much wider set of related between each other aspects of the hobby. So, for example, having started his own RCGarage, the user can register models from it in the competition and track the history of participations, mileage of the model, part and setup lists, and more to that. In today's update, we would like to talk about some of the changes made just in the area where several aspects of the RC hobby meat each other.

First of all, the smallest one, but very handy feature is the ability to quickly access the driver's profile page from the user's garage. Until today, there was only reverse access implemented.

Thanks to user's feedback, we have improved the display of the brand list upon garage's page, adding a separate section for displaying chassis manufacturers in addition to manufacturers of tuning parts.

Among other things, we also made a small update to the setups page, which can be found here. Now you can clearly see on the page who has loaded each setup in particular, and for which model it relates to, including corresponding links for quick access.

More Enhancements to RCTrackBuilder Tool22 days ago

The more feedback we receive the more enhancements we can make and today's update of RCTrackBuilder is no exception.

First of all we have added an ability to select a pivot (of corner or of a segment curve) and a tap-friendly manipulation area for the selected pivot. This features enabled both for normal and touch screens. Second of all in order to keep things organized we have added a preview image for all stored layouts so one will be able to identify each given layout easly by looking at its preview image.
Note: For the track layouts created before this update it is required to re-save them in order to get previews.

As an additional feature we have implemented an ability to Export layout into PNG image format directly with no extra effort required to make a screenshot or print to PDF whatsoever. As a bonus the exported image will preserve transparent background so it can be easily overlaid over a backdrop in some photo editor.

Drivers Search and Brand New Custom Rankings29 days ago

Drivers Search in RCGarage is no doubt one of the unique features among the many other online RC resources worldwide and today we are introducing new developments in the Search Engine and Results Rankings.

Second of all, we added the ability to change the sorting mode of search results, in particular: By the number of events raced in a particular class, By the number of podium hits, By the number of race wins and by the special parameter Overall Scores (calculatation rules are described on the Top25Drivers page.

Statistics and data analysis junkies, as well as those who study the history of RC - now have even more opportunities in finding information. Below are some examples of how you might use the Drivers Search and Results Ranking to produce interesting result sets.
