RCGTiming and Scoring Official Release!3 months ago
As some of you may know there is an integrated lap timing and scoring system within RCGarage platform. It's been there for awhile now. 6 years to be exact. For all this time we continued to put effort into developing the system that can be used by anyone anywhere with as the less effort as possible and without special technical knowledge. This system has complete integration with our RCGarage platform and it's been free to use for all this time.
With the continuing growth of the system through the years and with increasing number of users we have decided to create a team and make our RCGTiming and Scoring system as a standalone project! This will allow us to extend our service support and make exclusive features to the system when required. That is why we introduce a couple of paid subscription plans along with the FREE one of course that will always be there.
Will this affect the integration with RCGarage?
No, it will not affect the integration at all because we know how important that is to have all the entities like Driver Profiles, Tracks and Clubs share the same platform.
How RCGTiming being as a standalone project will affect on the current RCGarage users?
All the current RCGarage users will share the same accounts with RCGTiming so everyone who had been using our lap timing system before will be able to log in using the same credentials.
IMPORTANT: All the active RCGTiming accounts will gain Special type of subscription plan as a reward for being with us all that time and providing us with important feedback. This subscription plan will be free of charge!
How to become an RCGTiming user?
If you are a race organizer or you just want to try our Lap Timing and Scoring system out you can just sign up on the website https://rcgtiming.com/ and pick a suitable subscription plan.
Note: If you have an active RCGarage user account you can just log in using respective credentials and just pick a subscription plan.
Advanced RCTrackBuilder Features1 year ago
Development of our one of the most popular tools RCTrackBuilder continues and based on frequent demand we added the ability to view the track layout (in 3D mode) for non-logged in users.
In addition, the track builder tool itself is now integrated into our timing and scoring system RCGTiming. So one can set a specific track layout for any given event in the database. That will make it not just be available for all users to view the track layout, but also it becomes possible to display it as an interactive mini-map in the video broadcast with online tracking of the predicted position of each driver in the race!
RCGTiming: Big update to the Timing and Scoring system UI!1 year ago
We continue to move forward and we continue to develop our project every single day, accumulating and processing feedback from users of RCGarage!
Today we want to introduce a big change in our integrated timing and scoring system. That was the result of recent few months of work and includes significant changes in RCGTiming UI.
IMPORTANT: For all those users who use RCGTiming to organize racing events and are worried about many updates, you shouldn't worry much because all the existing functionality remains, only its location changes. Nevertheless, if you have any questions about the new interface, you can always get an answer using our feedback form here.
List of the most important changes in the current update:
- Whole new main screen of the event
- Changed the navigation between sections of the current event. You no longer need to switch screens going from different configuration sections

- A brand new way to manage an event
- Optimization of the control panel on the main event screen and in the race screen
- In addition, many optimizations have been made related to the race schedule and various useful features have been added, including restarting the race and viewing the driver's lap chart right from the ongoing race screen

Thanks to our supporters and all of you who help our project grow! You are the reason we continue to develop more and more new features and make them available for everyone!

RCGarage Community Grows!1 year ago
We took a short break in the news feed, but the RCGarage community does not stand still and continues to grow!
During this short period of time our users managed to add more than 150 RC models, claim more than 200 driver profiles, create more than 50 track layouts, and participate in more than 8000 events!
Join the RCGarage community and share your profiles with your friends!

Driver Profile page layout update and new logo for RCGarage!1 year ago
Yet another update has become possible by feedback received from our users!
Important changes were made on the driver's profile page - there is an adjusted layout for displaying the relation between the profile and RC collection linked to it. If before the update we displayed only a link to the user's collection, then from now on all models are shown directly on the profile page!
In addition to the rc collection display, the way of displaying the list of racing classes, teams and clubs the driver is racing for has been improved.
And the last but not event close to the least we have redesigned our logo!
RCGarage Community Grows!1 year ago
Recently we wrote about the fact that our resource is been out there in the Internet for 7 years now, but we didn't tell how exactly has the RCGarage community grew during this period and how does it continue to grow right now. So we are about to change that! Because in fact all this time, our users continued to create models in their garages, add new driver profiles, upload setupsheets, develop club and team pages, and more recently, create race track layouts. There are more aspects of the hobby that can be found on the RCGarage pages which we are going to talk about in future updates.
In today's update, we want to introduce a change made to the All Models section, which provides additional flexibility in viewing other users' models. Now there is an option to filter out models of a given brand or of a particular a kit or show only the models you liked. And also there is a way to change the order of the list itself, for example, sort the models by the date they were added to RCGarage from the most recent to those that were created earlier.
In this month alone, there were more than 150 RCs added to RCGarage and we would like to share photos of the most recent of them.
Develop your garage, add models and share them with your friends and the community!

Extra Features for the Event Organizer1 year ago
Organizing competitions and any other RC-related events is not an easy task for the host. It is necessary to prepare the route, provide electricity, in some cases food and lights, think over the schedule and other details, without which the event may receive a negative review or not take place at all.
In today's update, we are expanding the functionality of our integrated timing and scoring system RCGarageTiming to enable organizers to add specific information about their events, for example, provide a full description of the event, where one can write an approximate schedule of the competition, additional conditions for sign-ups, conditions of entering the facility and other information that participants need to know or would like to. If the event has its own design and a specially designed graphic poster, then it can be added directly from the event page.
If the organizer has found sponsors of the event and wants to shout out about their support - now this can also be done on the event page itself, thereby each participant will be able to assess the involvement of sponsors!
