RRR Racing Forum Logo (2005 - January 2010) Titled "'Crasssshhhhh!! by RST'" in the forum slideshow

RRR Racing Forum (abbreviation of Re-Volt R/C Racing) was one of the largest English Re-Volt support forums. Though the site is still technically online, the pages do not render properly. This is due to imageshack and other free webhosts removing content over the years, and a piece of javascript left over from RRRe-take which causes the page to refresh and DOM to not render properly. (see below for a fix)

The website's principal characteristic was the way that the site was structured. Most of the tutorials which were located on an external free webhost are no longer available. Thus, there is no tutorial section. RRR has put a special emphasis on custom track and car creation and offered several hardcore programs to make the Re-Volt gaming experience more satisfactory. However, it's almost impossible to get access to these programs as the forum is considerably dead. Since the existence of Re-Volt 1.2, most of the programs are now obsolete.

Registration is required due to spammers. The user were required to register at the forum and then post a reply in the conforming with the Rules topic saying they agree to the rules. Once this is done you could enjoy all the benefits of a member including the tools and programs. Tools of the site are awarded to members which have created custom creations for the game or who have provided some other important information for the community.

To view RRR, the use of Firefox or a Webkit browser was required. Attempting to use any other browser will result in a non-fully-functional webpage and a javascript warning prompt. Since 2015 it might appear dead but you need to use browser's Inspector (F12)tool to remove "visibility: hidden;" from style= in <body> to unhide the website. basic InvisionFree usage only, the forum heavily depends on now defunct websites which is why it appears broken.

The RRR story

The site was created by RST in the year 2005 with the intention of preserving the Re-Volt community and keeping it alive. The site got popularity very quickly and was the most used sites of the online scene.

Site Hacked

The site was attacked by some user(s) for unknown reasons. RST said that he knew who "the guys" were that made "such acts". The site was partially erased including the important tutorials and tools that were offered by the site. During two years the site was closed and all the references to it were lost.

Recovery

In August, 2006, the site returned thanks to a request made by RST to the invisionfree team. After the website returned it again was the one of the most popular English speaking forum within a few months.

The Future of RRR

The forum was closed early 2010 for an RRRe-take which would have included less strict rules regarding the site. The core purpose of the site would remain the same, to promote the creation of things for the game - if people do not do this the site, it was said that RRR would no longer exist on the community.

The following is an interview with RST concerning RRR's future:

It was my intention to reach my Re-Volt dreams. In 1999 it was "Can I do this", and I did it.
The fact is all want the RRR stuff, but what have they given? Nothing?
The RRR was the site that forced the guys to make things, and the result is it's present condition.
The RRR goal was the preservation of Re-Volt. Success. RRR is dead, ok, but Re-Volt is alive. Success.
You have to accept that a thing that was good and great is not possible to be the same forever.
Especially if we don't get support. And This is the current situation. No Support. The deep thing of RRR was to keep up creation and it was a success.
To get RRR working again, it is required to get some online action.This requires the use of the most popular online playing lobby of the game. That is RVHouse...
Just when I arrive, insults and speaking behind the back. For awhile 'I could not return' because I saw the bad feelings and insults. One of my last dreams on this scene will be to return to 1999 with all of my knowledge and the things would be really different. This is such a typical desire of the world.[sic][1]
