VIRTUAL NEO14 vs REAL NEO14

24.10.2014   Category: Site news

Having footage available of the Grand Opening event at NEO14, and footage of the real NEO14 A-Main, called for a 'Virtual vs Real' study of the 1:8 nitro buggies, never done before. Same cars, same track, same camera position and zooming (as much as possible) so we should end up with very similar pictures. And we did. We modified the brightness and color of the VRC video a bit to match the real NEO14 which of course is at an indoor facility with quite a bit of smoke (and we don't fill our virtual hall with smoke...). We even added a touch of blur, so keep in mind that the actual VRC footage is a lot sharper, brighter and colorful.

It's quite amazing to see how similar the cars in VRC Pro behave to the real cars. It's evidence of how good the physics and vehicle dynamics of VRC Pro are, check out the video and see for yourself.

Another interesting analysis: the average lap time of the VRC Pro winner Tobias Isaksson was 28.4 sec (2 pit stops in the 20 minute race), and Ty Tessmann, winner of the real NEO, averaged 29.1 sec, so also really close on the long race. Also fastest lap times were incredible close!

NEOBUGGY.NET wrote: "The Neo’14 was considered by many to be one of the more exciting races of the 2014 season, in both the real world AND the virtual world. VRC-PRO has shared a side by side look at Neo’14 final and the Virtual Neo’14 final! This compares the real 1:8 nitro buggies to the VRC-PRO nitro buggies, displaying stunning similarity. A result of over 14 years of continuous development on physics and vehicle dynamics has clearly paid off for the crew at Virtual Racing Industries."
