New Parts from CRC

New Product Release - November 2011
"Brace Yourself" Edition

New this month from CRC is a batch of products designed to make your Gen-Xi, XL, X10 and X10LE more adjustable, rigid, strong and true. CRC has a line of carbon fiber front end braces for both 1:12th and 1:10th Gen-X cars. Most are in stock and ready to ship.

Reverse/flat servo mount plate for the Gen-X10 and 10LE
#17402 - Standard (med) width
#17403 - Wide width
These new reverse servo mount plates allow for more room to move the battery back and forth in the CRC Gen-X 10 and 10LE. The servo is now flipped to the front and mounted flat, lowering the CG and lightening the car. Also, more space is now open to put all the components inline and/or move the battery further forward. Direct bolt on with the stock front end screws. Will need P/N 3315 - Flat servo mounts and 1424 - 1/4 in. flat head screws to reverse mount the servo.
Suggested Retail Price - $15.99
17402 - UPC - 800734174028
17403 - UPC - 800734174035

17402 + 17403 - Lower Front End Brace - standard and wide
Shown here is the new 1776 3-piece Multi-brace and the lower 17403 wide reverse/flat servo mount plate.

1776 - New 3-piece Multi-brace for the ProStrut Front end on the Gen-X10, 10LE.

Typically, a front end brace is used for high grip applications to stabilize and strengthen the front end. The brace reduces chassis flex. This new brace for the Gen-X10/LE car features adjustable width to handle the medium (standard) and wide width front end placement as well as provisions for long and short arm. It is actually 4 parts in one! Just remove the button head screws out of the center section and change the brace width to match your car's width and arm length. Complete with hardware. (part displayed above)

Suggested Retail Price - $16.99
UPC - 800734017769

3276 + 3278 - Front end cross braces for the Gen-X, XL and Xi.

Much like the 10th scale version, a front end brace is a great benefit for high grip applications. For the 1:12th car, we use 2 different braces, the wide brace for the short arm and the narrow brace for the long front end arms. The 3276 is the longer brace that is used for the short upper arms. The 3278 is a shorter piece used with the long upper A-arm. In addition to an increase in stability, the brace keeps the front end aligned in big crashes. Simple add on part with hardware included.

Both the 3276 and 3278 come with hardware
Mounted 3276 on the new Gen-Xi
Longer 3276 for short upper arms. Shorter 3278 for long upper A-arms.

3276 - $10.99 - UPC 800734032762
3278 - $9.99 - UPC 800734032786

1762 - Extended rear shock mount top plates for the Gen-Xi.

The new Gen-Xi features optional rear shock positions. You can utilize these positions by lengthening the shock. Or these new extended rear top plates can be use to move the rear shock forward in .25 inch and .5 inch increments. Typically, when the rear shock is mounted more forward, more mid and exit steering is achieved. It is a quick simple change that can be done to alter the handling of the car.
Sold as a set of 2. With .25 inch and .5 inch movement that matches the hole pattern on the Xi.

The .5 option top plate shown below mounted on the Gen-Xi. Notice the forward antenna/shock mount matching the longer rear plate.

4022 - Super flexible sensor wire - 50 mm

New from CRC is a super short sensor wire made in the same soft flexible material. Great for the applications where the speedo and motor are very close.

4022 - Super soft sensor wire - 50 mm

4022 - $5.95 - UPC 800734040224

Calandra Racing Takes 2 at the 2011 Halloween Classic!

Calandra Racing Takes 2 at the 2011 Halloween Classic!
Johnson and Buran T.Q. and Win!
The Annual Halloween Classic event in Ohio has been held in many different venues over the long history of the race. From the early days on the westside of Cleveland, to the Mentor area, Strongsville and now in the hands of the Gate in Brunswick, Ohio, the race has bounced around the area. One thing that has not changed over the years is the high level of competition at the event. In addition to a strong field of talent, the event was sold out for 2011. The venue ran out of physical space at 180 entries, simply could not fit another racer, an incredible turnout.
In the 17.5 class for 1:12th scale, Michigan pilot David Johnson took his new CRC Gen-Xi to an impressive T.Q. and win. Dave got his car just in time for the event and both he and the car were quickly dialed in. Dave used CRC tires and a CRC/Black Art R8C body to capture the victory. Dave used the standard cross pack arrangment with the inline speedo/servo position. Over half of the A-main included CRC cars including the top 3 qualifiers; Kenny Lambert 2nd and Chuck Lonergan 3rd. A strong result in one of the largest classes at the event.

CRC Gen-Xi, Pro Cut tires and Black Art R8C body. Dialed!

In the WGT class, 2009 winner of the Halloween Classic, CRC driver Aaron Buran, took his CRC Gen-X10 LE to another T.Q. and win. Aaron used a fairly conventional and stock Gen-X10 LE to again take the victory at the Halloween Classic. The CRC Rocket Fuel pack 3701 and the 1785 font stiffener brace were used in Aaron's win. A great result from the Ohio driver.

Buran's T.Q. and winning CRC Gen-X 10 LE

For its 33rd consecutive season, the BRCA announce the 2011/2012 12th Scale National Championship.  Six exciting rounds of racing for the Spec and Modified Championship titles will be held across the nation at indoor venues fully equipped for up to eighty drivers in each class.

The BRCA 1/12th Electric Circuit National championship for 2011/12 will consist of a total of 6 weekend events with 2 meetings at each event, Saturdays will be Spec class and Sundays will be Modified. Drivers enter each day individually, and for the full experience of the social event that is a BRCA 12th National, many will enter both days and enjoy a very sociable Saturday night with fellow racers.

Four out of the six meetings will count towards the National Championship, and separate Championships will be held for F2 & F3 drivers as well as the Open Championship.  Drivers earn a handicap that is used to seed heats, so not only do you always race with drivers of your ability, you automatically enter these Championships too.  With six Championship winners each season, there is always a season-long competition with someone to enjoy.

New for this season, the Spec class will use speed controllers with no timing boost, and a 10.5 brushless motor from the BRCA list.  Eligible speed controllers will be published on the BRCA website ( and for guidance check the ROAR list (

Team CRC Sweeps both Pan Car Classes at the
2011 ROAR Asphalt Nats!
Team CRC's Andrew Knapp backs up his 2011 ROAR Carpet Nats Win with another win at the Asphalt Nats!

Rui Goncalves backs up his 2011 ROAR Region 2 TQ & Win with a National Title!
Click "read more" for the Driver's reports...

The 2011 ROAR Asphalt Nationals was held at one of the finest asphalt tracks in the US, Jackson RC in Jackson, NJ.
Ran by Al Sodano, Greg Sharpe and club members; it features a high driver stand above the club house with a great view of the track at any spot. The weather was not cooperating as it rained a little 2 days of the event. All of the racing was still completed, but the track conditions were not consistent day to day.

In 12th scale, it was Andrew Knapp's first time ever on asphalt with a 12th scale, so "I didn't know what to expect." With a little help from teammate and fellow podium finisher, Joel Johnson (3rd); Andrew figured it out in a hurry as he won the first three rounds of qualifying in the Qual-Points format, securing himself the TQ spot. Andrew consistently set the fastest lap in every round of qualifying as well. "No other car could compete with the speed that the Gen XL can hold in the corners!" In the triple A mains, Andrew took the wins in A1 and A2, and even lapped the entire field in A2.
Good Job "Android", and Congratulations on your second ROAR National Title this year!

Following his Electric Paved ROAR Region 2 TQ and win in World GT, Rui Goncalves gets the win at the 2011 Electric ROAR Paved Nationals!
In the first round of qualifying, EJ Evans from TOP USA took the honors followed by Rui Goncalves in a close second. In the second round, Rui Goncalves took the TQ spot evening the 2 up in the qual-points battle. EJ ended up TQ'ing rounds 3 and 4, and Rui would put in 2 more solid runs to put him second on the grid for the main event. The A-main was short lived for the TQ driver as he had some problems on lap 1 which sent Rui into the lead where he ran for the remainder of the race. With the TQ out of the way, no one else had enough to challenge Rui as he drove away in dominant fashion in search of his first National Title.
Congratulations Rui!!!

New Speedsport line of LiPo batteries from CRC
Click "read more" to check them out!!!

Team CRC's Maxxcell LiPo batteries have been enjoying huge success in the racing scene for the past couple of seasons. With big wins in both on-road and off-road events, the Maxxcell line has proven that they are top caliber performers. Unfortunately for the hobbyist, backyard basher, or casual club racer; those couple extra hundredths of a volt, few extra seconds of runtime, and slightly lower IR numbers can really increase the cost of the battery packs. For those enthusiasts that have really been wanting to try out CRC batteries, but couldn't justify shelling out the coin for top level "Factory Team" racing packs, Team CRC's new Speedsport line of LiPo batteries are just the answer you've been looking for.
Team CRC's Speedsport line of LiPo batteries offer great battery packs at an even better price. These batteries pack a huge punch for your vehicle, NOT your wallet. Their performance is already being proven as they have won a weekly club race at CRC Raceway in the 13.5 2wd SCT class; and they have survived some serious bashing from one of our favorite "back-flipping" local drivers.
Ask your local retailer about Team CRC Speedsport batteries today, and start enjoying top level performance at an entry level price!
Currently available in the 3 variations shown below, but more will be added to the line-up soon! Including 2s and 3s packs for mini's, as well as a 96mm 2s pack for 10th scale vehicles with smaller battery compartments, or just for anybody looking to shed a little weight from their vehicle.
