Can't find the models.

Additional Car and Chassis models are available for download on the "Model Download" page on the website. Car and/or Chassis models not included in the database provided with the program must be imported. You can also create your own models if you are handy with calipers. If you need to import a model into the program be sure to watch the Youtube Screen cast video entitled "Import Files" for a demo of the process.

You can also share models with your buddies or submit them to be included into the model library.

What models are included.

The full Version installs with 7 generic models of the most common RC Chassis. Additional models can be downloaded from the "Model Download" page and then imported into the program. New models are being added regularly.

What Computer OS is required?

Currently the program only runs under the Microsoft Windows OS. The program has been tested using Win7, 8 and 10. Several user's are running the program on a Mac. This requires a compatibility program such as Parallels Desktop 7 or VMWare plus the Windows OS to be installed on the iOS computer. No specific testing has been conducted using the Mac OS so no guarantee of successful operation can be provided.

What Suspension Geometry is Supported?

The program supports chassis' with symmetrical independent front and rear suspension geometry. Suspensions using asymmetric designs (Oval cars), kingpin (Pan/F1 cars) and live axle cars (Pan/F1 cars) are currently not supported.

Install Errors?

During download/install process if you receive and error like "application validation did not succeed , unable to continue". This error seems to occur when installing the program using some cellular networks. The easiest way to get around it is to switch to a connection that uses DSL, Cable or Fibre Optic network.

During download/install process if you receive and error like "Cannot Continue. The application is improperly formatted." This error is due to the version of Microsoft .net Framework that is installed on your computer. To fix this problem install .net Framework V4.5 or greater.

V4.3 update did not install?

If you are a licensed user and RC3 did not automatically install the V4.3.1 update then you are likely running V4.2.0.9 and did not install V4.3.0.9 that was released Dec 2016. Click >Help >About RC Crew Chief to see what version you are running. If that is the case then to update to the new version and transfer all your models complete the following steps.

1. Install the new version from the website. http://www.rccrewchief.wrightdesign.ca/RcccDownload.aspx. You will likely need a new Activation code so send in the serial number to request it.

2. In V4.2.0.9 (old version) on the top tool strip click >File >Backup to save the database.

3. Once V4.3 (new version) is activated on the top tool strip click >File >Restore and select the folder you backed up to. The program will close so reopen it and you will get an error. Close the error window and Restore the database again. When you open the program again everything should be there.

4. When you are comfortable that all your models are intact you can uninstall V4.2.0.9.
