When racing in a league on a competitive Sim Racing platform, the car setup can make the difference between success and failure. For many newcomers to the sim racing hobby, creating a basic car setup sometimes proves to be a difficult task. On most platforms, you will be able to use setups shared by fellow sim racers, but they are hardly ideal as we all have our personal driving style and skill levels.

Would it not be interesting to use an application, that could help us tune a setup to our own wishes, and in the process would help us learn the required setup skills needed to get the most from our sim racing.

This is where Virtual Race Car Engineer 2018 can come to the rescue. Virtual Race Car Engineer was designed with 20+ years of knowledge and actual experience both in the real-world and virtual racing scene. The application is proven to give you exact advice on what you should alter in your race-car setup to tailor it to you.

Virtual Race Car Engineer can be used with any realistic auto racing software that allows the users to adjust the car setup. For best use, Virtual Race Car Engineer should be running on a second monitor or laptop (or Windows tablet). Check with Virtual Race Car Engineer during your test and tune sessions. With each run on the Virtual Race Car Engineer, you describe a condition specific to your own lap settings and results and receive the recommendations and explanations to address that very situation. Over time and use you will come to understand the effect of chassis changes as they’ve related directly to your own experiences, and with that knowledge become the master of your own setup.

The completely re-written Virtual Race Car Engineer 2018 will be available on the official VRCE webpage on Oct 18th and on Steam on Oct 24th. VREC2018 will be available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Lap Wizard

Enter the car settings and results from a test run, report your handling impression, and the Lap Wizard recommends setup options and changes to cure your condition. The algorithms were developed in collaboration with car chiefs and engineers of 20+ years practical experience and take into account details as specific as underused or overused tires, sub-optimal settings, the interaction of different chassis changes.

Corner Wizard

A “quick tip” tool for sussing out the possible setup changes to correct a variety of handling conditions on a given corner.

Become the master

Not only will you go faster in the garage and faster on the track today, but ultimately become a master without even realizing it.

With each run on the Virtual Race Car Engineer, you describe a condition specific to your own lap settings and results and receive the recommendations and explanations to address that very situation. Over time and use you will come to understand the effect of chassis changes as they’ve related directly to your own experiences, and with that knowledge become the master.
