Driver Profile page layout update and new logo for RCGarage!3 months 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!4 months 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 Organizer5 months 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!
Now we are 7 years old! Happy Birthday RCGarage! 5 months ago
Exactly 7 years ago, in February 2014, we launched our RCGarage service in the public domain!
All this time we have been filling up our database with various information about the RC world. This is information about new models, their spare parts, the event results, rc drivers, tracks, brands and companies, clubs and federations from all around the world. There is a statistics page where you can get familiar with the amount of data that is available for each one of you all this time and it was and always will be absolutely free!
And of course, we could not have done all this without the support of RCGarage users which as for today counts up to 1500 people. Who, by the way, added information about more than 500 RC models from their garages, uploaded over 100 tis setupsheets, and also created over 200 track layouts in one of our special tools!
As a birthday present from RCGarage team, we want to give all active users unlimited access to the Personal Practice tool! In order to get such a gift, all you need is to share the post from our page on facebook, vk or telegram and that's it!
Happy Birthday RCGarage!
Small update of RCTrackBuilder tool5 months ago
At the end of last year, we released a brand new tool for designing track layouts for RC models — RCTrackBuilder . Since then there have been more than 200 track layouts created by RCGarage users and the number of new designes is still increasing to this day!
During the usage period, we received a lot of feedback from active users with suggestions and ideas on how to make the tool even better and more convenient. And today we have implemented one of these ideas so we added the ability to unsnap control points from the lineup grid. This will allow you to create even more unique and interesting track layouts!
Thanks everyone for the support and the feedback!
Event Sign-up Form Update5 months ago
Each host and racing track has its own competition and sign-up rules and, as a result, sometimes a different set of information is required to be filled in by the participants. Until now, our integrated timing and scoring system RCGarageTiming did have only one set of fields for all types of events.
For quite some time we have received many different requests asking to allow the race directors to define the content of the registration form themselves. Today's update introduces such opportunity to everyone so a particular race director can customize the driver's registration form as he needs.
In addition, for the convenience of users, we have added the ability to specify a set of racing classes that are open for registration right in the event creation window!
