Calandra Racing Concepts wins in Orlando!
CRC's Max Kuenning takes the win in World GT at the 2012 Snowbird Nationals
Max Kuenning enjoying the company of his new friends and the World GT Championship at the 2012 Snowbirds. Max used the CRC Gen-X10 LE (#1712)and CRC 6300 mah lipo (#3702) to power his way to a convincing win at the Birds!

At the 2012 Snowbird Nationals, the World GT class was well attended with a large number of competitors and teams entering the event. Michigan native and now New Mexico resident, Max Kuenning ran World GT with his new CRC Gen-X10 LE. In the A-main, 6 out of 10 cars were CRC machines with Brian Wynn, Jari Taskila, Frank Calandra, Randy Grosse and Dave Ehrlich joining Kuenning in the final.
Max took the lead early and never looked back with smooth lines and great power from the CRC 6300 mah single cell lipo. Max ran the car fairly stock, adding only the long upper front arm and mount as optional parts. Joining Max on the podium was CRC pilot, Jari Taskila in 3rd. Another great result from the flying Fin now living in Connecticut.

2012 Snowbirds Champion
The MOST winning World GT car in history, the CRC Gen-X10. Affordable, fast, easy to set up and
well supported. The Gen-X10 LE just keeps winning, now 2012 Snowbird Champ! This is Max's car
straight from post-race technical inspection. Missing the Revtech 13.5 motor which was still being
reviewed in tech.

The B4 platform is undefeated on a world level since its release in 2003, winning four I.F.M.A.R. World Championships (2003- Billy Easton; 2005- Neil Cragg; 2007- Hayato Matsuzaki; 2009- Martin Achter). The B4 has also carried Ryan Cavalieri to four straight R.O.A.R National Championships in Modified Buggy.

SKU: 2188
List Price: £8.99

CRC's new Chrome compound. Great for high bite 1:12th road racing especially in the 17.5 and 13.5 classes.
The Chrome has the best of both worlds, the high traction grip of a magenta front, with the easy smooth feel of a black front.
CRC Chrome tires qualified 1-2 in Cleveland with Frank Calandra and Brian Wynn taking the top spots in 17.5. A few months later at the Dash-4-Cash race in New York City, Mike Haynes and Frank Calandra finished 1-2 using Chrome fronts with CRC yellow rears.
