RCGRankings is HERE! The Ultimate Global RC Driver Ranking System! 3 months ago

It's time for every class, driver, and a multitude of events to be included WORLDWIDE!

RCGRankings is updated daily… Yes DAILY!

Our data shows more than 250,000 racers competing Worldwide in many different classes. With this abundance of data at our fingertips powered by RCGarage we set the Goal to classify the entire World and every class down to the club level. This now allows every racer competing to know how they rank in each and every class entered on both a National and Global level! How cool is that!?

Now this ranking system was not thrown together overnight. It has been a labor of love to quantify and make all this data make sense in a clear and concentrated way. The data is derived from the inception of RCGarage that keeps a racers rolling data going back 10 years! And now you do not have to have 10 years of data to be ranked. All the info for ‘How it Works’ is in a clickable link at the bottom.

So what does a true ranking system mean for you, your competition, and sponsors? Well first and foremost you are able to see where your rank is against the best in the World! Are you #1? Remember RCGRankings takes all classes into account so you are able to gauge your abilities against your buddies at your local track all the way up to the best of the best. This then becomes a tool for you to track your own progress and a benchmark for potential sponsors that you may be chasing? This truly is your report card of your racing progress in real time. Numbers don’t lie and RCGRankings make it all make sense for you and the companies you may race for.

Team Managers and Companies alike now have a true tool to get a sense of a new and existing drivers abilities, accolades, and gauge the level of sponsorship they deem necessary. Also beyond their abilities you can track a driver to see if they are active in the racing community, competing on a weekly or monthly basis, and if they have been improving over the years to gauge their new year contracts. It's all there for you at your fingertips, just type in a name!

RCGTiming and Scoring Official Release!2 years 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 Features2 years 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!

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.
