    The revolutionary "V3" ESC from Hobbywing is FINALLY HERE! The first V3 model released is a 2-3s 120A controller for 2s and 3s racing applications. It accepts 2-3S lipos with an internal BEC that features a high output 3A/6V. The new V3 has a smaller footprint, coming in at: 37 x 31 x 29.5 mm. This version does not boost voltage for 1s packs but can be used for 1s with a receiver pack. In the future, a 1s version of the v3 is planned.
    After 2 full years of R&D from Hobbywing, the electronics have been refined with expanded capabilities and storage. To compliment the new advanced electronic hardware in the controller, advanced multi-function software has been written. A precise CNC machined heat sink keeps it all cool. The integrated electronic on/off switch is part of the unit so no wires come off the speedo for a switch. Included in the new hardware/sofware package is a data logger that records temps, motor max RPM and lowest battery voltage.

    1) 10 predefined profiles – can be modified – import/export – no need to reprogram the software each time you want to change the profiles.
    2) Data-logger – Temperatures – RPM of the motor – Lowest battery voltage.
    3) Better cooling & smaller size – Copper core for more efficiency – CNC heat sink and case – smaller but more efficient cooling
    4) Intergrated electronic on/off switch – Saves space – More durable – Remote off switch, hold brake for 6s
    5) Software – you can adjust the timing relative to RPM– All adjustments refined – Cooler temperatures
    6) Connection – the programming box is now connected to its own connector, no need to remove the receiver plug – The connector can also be used for external fan, this bypasses the BEC so it will not load the BEC circuit
    7) New PC software with free software upgrades. The software is designed to be more user friendly.
    8) Protection – temperature protection for the motor and ESC with, low voltage protection for the battery. Throttle signal loss protection to save the model from damage.

    Calandra Racing Concepts wins in Dallas!


    Calandra Racing Concepts wins in Dallas!
    CRC's Max Kuenning does it again! Snowbirds in February and ROAR Nationals in March!
    Fresh off his victory at the 2012 Snowbirds, Max Kuenning does it again, this time in 1:12th scale. Max used the CRC Gen-Xi (#3203) to power his way to a convincing win at the ROAR Nationals in Dallas.



    At the 2012 ROAR Nationals, the 1:12th 17.5 class turned into a "who's who's" of R/C drivers with many top drivers jumping in the 17.5 division. In the "Triple-A" main format, CRC driver Max Kuenning took the first 2 mains to wrap up his National Championship in convincing fashion. The young man from New Mexico used a plethora of CRC goodies to power his way to his 2nd National Championship. For the body, Max chose the Black Art R8C (#4167) as this shell is known as the leader in steering with great stability. For power, Max used the CRC 6300 lipo pack (#3702) for the highest power with long term voltage to ensure he had no fade during the run. Kuenning used Pro Cut tires from CRC with magenta compound front tires complementing the pink compound rears. Joining Max in the A-main were CRC teammates Randy Grosse from North Dakota and the Tennessee tornado, Robert Dirla also using the full CRC race package.

    In the 17.5 class, the Top Qualifier was the On-point front man and owner, Paul Cicarrello with Max a close second in qualifying. In the finals, the 2 drivers swapped positions with Max taking the ROAR National Championship. While the top 2 used a different chassis, they both chose the same power package; the Hobbywing 120a 1s speed control (#7002) and the CRC 6300 lipo pack (#3702). With the Hobbywing selling to the public at under $130 dollars, it proves that a ROAR National winning product can be acquired at an affordable price.

    Description:
    The thrill of speed, this phrase best describes the emotions for a driver to move when the Plazma Ra experienced on the track. Re-imposed in the 21 Century returns to the Plazma in the race. Earlier, the Plazma was considered a compromise racing machine and the Plazma Ra is in no way inferior to this. Made from the high-tech aluminum and carbon fiber, you can see at a glance where the racer is at home. On the racetrack, the Plazma Ra exploit his skills. Systematically trimmed to light it takes on the Plazma Ra with other competitors.

    The executed as under current development progress-link rear suspension not only an optimally positioned battery, but also the layout and arrangement of the other components are the best chassis balance. With its comprehensive and accessible set of opportunities Plazma Ra is the ideal base for the club racing after work or the asset in the fight for top positions in the top-level racing.

    The chassis is designed so that it can be equally used in the various categories such as Stock or Modified can. It has the Plazma Ra out of the kit has a very high basic speed. Finding the optimal setup is much easier to understand because the model reacts to all changes of each parameter.

    Power transfer in Plazma Ra is 1:1 from the engine to the rear axle. All drive components are very easily kept in order to keep the moving mass as low as possible and the power transfer as efficient as possible to make. The dynamics of the Plazma Ra sets a new standard, the border area has become much more tangible and the cornering speeds are breathtaking.

    The chassis is made of highly compressed carbon fiber CNC machined and formed the basis of Plazma Ra. The chassis plate is designed to accommodate car-for LiPo batteries. All holes are symmetrical to the chassis longitudinal axis in order to achieve a perfect chassis balance.

    The brackets for the engine and rear axle are made of aluminum and easily accessible. It also quickly be adjusted to different roll centers.

    The extra large differential is particularly Durable, through consistent lightweight but does not have a negative effect on the rotating mass.

    All booms are equipped with R / L thread to make the handling of the vehicle as easy as possible. Front and rear axle have a particularly sophisticated suspension geometry that gives the Plazma Ra maximum mechanical grip. The extra-lightweight wheel axle wheels are available for all the common connector suitable provider.

    The centrally located damper is made precise and works absolutely smooth, this is an extremely smooth ride achieved which avoids inadvertent load-change reactions.

    For optical processing all aluminum parts are anodized red, so the model is also the unmistakable visual equivalent of CI KYOSHO.

    The sophisticated design and elegant processing set new standards in this highly competitive class. In conjunction with the Team Orion KYOSHO range offers a superior overall package, the "out of the box" is capable of winning.

    SAKURA FGX - Formula Generation X

    Another true innovation by 3 Racing, the FGX short for Formula Generation X is the first and most unique 1/10th F1 chassis since the 3 Racing F109 with it’s successful innovative rear dampening system. With the goal to create the most unique and realistic Formula 1 chassis while not compromising handling, the FGX was created from the ground up and basically shares zero parts with the F109 or anything else currently available.
    Suspension - F1 inspired
    The FGX employs both front and rear independent suspension systems which truly distinguishes itself from all current Formula 1 chassis currently available. The rear end uses laydown oil filled coil spring dampeners similar to that found in today's real F1 cars. The entire rear suspension system is fully adjustable with the same adjustability you'd find in today's touring cars, namely toe in/out, camber, anti roll bars, caster, track width etc.
    The Front suspension has maintained the used of the simple kingpin and coil spring system like traditional pan car style F1 chassis but features more realistic suspension arms modeled after the Ferrari F60. The molded suspension arms provides a strong and realistic front suspension system while still providing the adjustability of camber and caster by simply loosening a few screws.
    Steering
    The FGX features a fully adjustable bell crank steering system which allows you to adjust Ackermann angle in small increments through the use of collar spacers, the same way you'd find on most touring cars.
    Drivetrain
    The FGX features a mid-rear mounted motor virtually identical to its real life counterpart giving it the best weight distribution possible. Since a direct drive system would not be suitable for a rear independent suspension system, the FGX uses a similar 3 gear gearbox design found in the race proven 3 Racing Sakura FF allowing it to position the motor in the very center of the chassis. This also provided the added ability for the FGX to be equipped with a more robust gear diff or a traditional ball diff unit and the use rebuildable universal driveshafts with protective blades.
    Upper Deck
    The FGX features a one piece composite molded upper deck which also forms part of the front suspension unit giving it a raised nose cone similar to that of a real F1 car. The one piece upper deck also features chassis flex adjustability where stiffeners can be installed to increase the car's agility and rigidity.
    Wing/Spoiler
    The one piece front wing and nose tip was given a modular design just like its life size counterpart making changing front wing and nose cone fast and easy.
    The rear wing features adjustable flap angels and realistically modeled after the Ferrari F60 with the added touch to allow the installation of a wet race LED tail light just like it's real life counterpart.
    Battery Compartment
    Longitudinally mounted battery for optimal weight distribution, battery compartment features easy access system, changing batteries only requires the loosening of one screw and has been designed to accept most high capacity lip batteries.
    Wheels
    The FGX will use its own wheels with its face pattern modeled after the Ferrari F60 plus a more realistic offset allowing it to fully optimize it's independent suspensions and better shock absorption, the FGX will feature wheels for both foam and rubber tires catering for all markets and race conditions.
    Rubber Tires sold seperately.
