Calandra Racing Concepts changed the face 12th Scale racing with the release of the beautiful Gen-X racer. Tenth scale racers can now also have the same professional quality pan car as TeamCRC releases its new 10th scale racer the GenX10.

The GenX10 is the result of continuous refinement and product development at Calandra Racing Concepts. The GenX10 has it roots from CRC's previous 10th scale on-road racer the Pantoura, but this latest kit has undergone a revolutionary ground up redesign to produce a well-balanced, lightweight and adjustable Tenth scale racer, the GenX10. Move over Touring Cars and make room for CRC's Pro10 2WD Sports Car racer.

The the GenX10 also features CRC's new Pro-Strut molded front end and new X-pod rear end as well as bottom loading battey tray that fits any battery style as well as adjustable track width and wheel base.

Accepts any 10th scale R/C battery type with easy bottom loading access

The new battery system features a super-secure bottom loading Tray. Two trays can be used, one designed to fit yesterdays NiMH cells and a flat tray to design tomorrows Lithium polymer cells. Just as with the GenX 12th scale racer, no tape needed.

All Calandra, Pro Strut Front End, The best in the business

The new front end is very adjustable and easy to build. The metal parts are pre-polished for super smooth movement. The camber and caster are both very easily adjusted.

The new front end is the only front end that uses pivot-ball technology.

The new Pro-Strut also features a wide range of ride-height adjustment. From bare rims to big tires, it is easy to reach legal ride height settings.

A CRC trademark, The Flush Mount Transponder

The GenX10 features the new flush mount personal transponder mounting hole. The low profile mount insures low weight in the car and great counting with the transponder being mere millimeters from the loop.

The GenX10 comes with new CRC Pro-Cut racing tires and CRC lightweight differential and new super-light diff rings.

Also on the car is CRC aluminum servo mounts, with pre-drilled holes for Futaba, KO, JR, Hitec and Sanwa.

New CRC X-Pod

The X-pod is strong, rigid, straight and flex free. This is the inspiration for the name, Generation - X. With plenty of room for brushless motors and the extra wires they need, the new X-pod is the answer.

The "4-bolt" units found on other manufactures' cars are actually step back in time and technology. Although TeamCRC has now introduced an X-pod it is truly an new, unique and inovative improvement. Long ago 1/12th manufactures used that 4 bolt top plate that blocked solder access. That style pod was dropped in favor of the lower, more rigid and more convenient 3 bolt pod. Now CRC takes that a step farther (not back in time) with the new X-Pod. Easy to solder, plenty of wire and motor room and THE Lowest CG of any pod in the business.

The X-pod is almost 10% lower than the other manufactures low "4-bolt" set up. Be a leader with CRC's X-Pod

A closer look at the CRC Pro-Strut Front End

CRC's new Pro-Strut front end features a lower arm with adjustable pivot ball tension. Just pop the ball in and tighten the clamp screw to get the perfect fit. As the pivot ball wears, you can further adjust the tension. The new Pro-Strut has a dual aluminum axle and 1/8th scale style pivot ball camber adjustments. The pre-polished pivot upper ball is inserted through the steering block and the play is adjusted with the slotted plastic insert. The polished ball combined with user-adjustable play makes for a super smooth, slop-free upper suspension point.

The new "dual-axle" allows the user to flip between inline and trailing axle suspension formats. This is perfect for both oval and road racers. As always, only the finest materials are used in the making of all CRC racing products. 100% carbon fiber, with no fillers, aerospace aluminum, and modern plastic composites.

The new lower arm with adjustable ball tension

The new CRC Pro-Strut front suspension uses a removable upper cap to facilitate easy caster adjustments. Just remove the screws, slide the shims where you want them and re-install the 2-56 button head screws. The upper cap "clamps" the hinge pin to keep it from moving. No more fishing the hinge pin through the block and the shim washers only to lose a bunch of shim washers during the process. The Pro-Strut front end uses an adjustable thread-in king pin, virtually eliminating the need to shim the front springs. To adjust the pre-load, simply loosen the locking 4-40 set screw and adjust the king pin to the desired pre-load. The adjustable king pin allows the use of different length springs. Simple and effective.

Thanks for the nice words regarding the new CRC Gen-X 10. The Gen-X 10 was a team effort here at CRC and all of us here appreciate the nice words.

We are very excited about the car. Our older Pantoura car (based on the Carpet Knife 3.2) was quite popular. It was a 190 - 200 mm pan car that accepted a touring or GTP style body. After the Gen-X 12th car replaced the 3.2, we phased out the Pantoura. We were shocked to see the number of calls and inquiries looking for a car of this scale.

This entry is targeted as an alternative to the more expensive 4wd touring cars. It is more durable, easier to work on and built to accept the cool bodies that exist in the 200 mm class. We will soon have pictures of our car with a sexy HPI Saleen mounted up. Any one who has been around a while knows that CRC’s first passion is 1:12th scale, and this is certainly not a replacement for 1:12th scale. We see the cars used more on outdoor asphalt tracks with Corvette, Mustang, Viper, McLaren, Saleen and sports car bodies.

In response: the new Gen-X 10. (we were going to call it the Ten-X, but Corally already has an SP-10X). The new Gen-X 10 is based on our popular 1:12th car. It has the new "Open-X" pod design that makes brushless motor use a breeze.

The Gen-X 10 also features our Pro-Strut front end, easily adjustable, easy to build and very durable. The Pro Strut is mounted on an adjustable front end plate that allows the user to change the wheel base of the car and width of the front end. Of course the Pro-Strut allows the use of trailing or inline axle applications without extra parts. In addition, CRC will offer a 235 mm kit for those looking to replicate the old “wide” cars.

Another real cool feature of the Gen-X 10 is the Lipo/NiMh battery compartment. The car uses different battery trays for flat Lipo’s or round sub C's. This allows the racer many power options; 4 cell Sub-C, 6 cell Sub-C and 7.4 Lipo packs. Also, the tray eliminates the need for that dreaded battery tape. When using 4 sub-C cells, one can move the pack back and forth for different weight balance. Speaking of balance, with the inline design and careful placement of the servo, the Gen-X 10 is balanced for equal weight left and right.

The car is suspended by a large body shock. For side-to-side suspension, the car uses CRC's proven "Uni-tune" side spring/damper tube suspension that has been often copied but never quite duplicated. CRC's Rocket tubes are carried over from the Gen-X 12th car.

A super-cool bumper that has CRC’s sunk personal transponder mount will be included. Other features are; 2.5 mm graphite chassis parts, a Pro diff, aluminum front shock mount and pre-drilled servo position holes with CRC’s aluminum mounts. The car is designed in house and all of the graphite parts are cut on our CNC machines at our Rome, NY based facility. It’s all good!

We will have some new cars (our new 1:10th oval car as well) on display all week at the Snowbirds. The car should street price at under $300 and be available around March 1.

Vu la "qualité" de l'aileron je miserai sur une carro HPI , non ? Y'a une Merco qui a de la gueule aussi.

C'est vrai que chez eux les carro 200 mm au look sympa pour ce genre de voiture , ca manque pas ... Par contre pour l'efficacité aéro , certaines vont pas trop mal , d'autres donnent l'impression qu'il n'y en a pas ...

Thank you for your interest in the new Gen-X 10. The car is shaping up very well and we are very busy trying to wrap up the car and get the initial release shipped. Unfortunately, some small issues and the basic complexity of the Gen-X 10 have caused us to fall a bit behind on our early release date.

The Gen-X 10 is much more than a basic 1:10th pan car. The Gen-X 10 has so many available configurations; 4 and 6 cell NiMh, 7.4 lipo, stick packs, side-by-side cells, 200 and 235 mm widths, servo mounts for multiple servo manufacturers… it really has a lot of flexibility.

Another item that has caused a slight delay is CRC’s new 1:10th Road Diff Hub. Most of the other manufacturers are using a 1:10 OVAL hub made from an OEM supplier as the diff hub on their Pro-10 Cars. This is a huge compromise. Why does CRC design a new hub for the Gen-X 10? In a word: balance. With today’s brushless motors, there is simply no way to balance the rear pod AND stay under the 200 mm rear width without a specific hub made for the 200 mm Pro-10 cars.

When compared to brushed motors, the new brushless motors must move to the right to center the motor’s weight in the car. When moving the motor to the right AND using an off-the-shelf oval hub, the car becomes too wide for the targeted 200 mm width specification. CRC keeps everything legal and balanced by ditching the OEM oval hub and manufacturing our own proprietary diff hub for these new Pro-10 cars. This allows CRC to move the brushless motor to the right AND still keep the car within the 200 mm width.

When retro fitting a brushed motor to CRC’s pod, it is quite easy to balance the pod using motor spacers to move the smaller brushed motor to the left. However, with the other cars on the market, the reverse is not true as it is almost impossible to balance the motor pod area on a car designed around the old oval hub specs. The only way to do it is to add lead weight in an effort to balance their poorly designed pod. It didn’t take too many staff meetings here at CRC to determine adding lead may not be the most effective way to balance the pod.

In addition to the pod being balanced, the Gen-X 10 chassis is also balanced. We believe that because the pod is articulated from the chassis, both components must be balanced. A balanced chassis and a balance pod, not just an overall balance but each component separately. With the Gen-X 10 chassis, the receiver and servo offset is to the right, with the brushless speedo to the left. For tiny receivers, the transponder can also be moved to the right. This results in a balance chassis portion of the race car.

Another great feature is the 235 mm wide conversion kit for the Gen-X 10. In Europe, Canada and some parts of the USA, these cars are run using the Pro-10 rules that allow a 235 mm width. Unlike some other Pro-10 manufactures who dictate to the racers which width they should run by making their car a 200 mm only, CRC allows the racer to make the choice by offering a 235 kit. And don’t let the other guys fool you, a 235 mm car will eat up and spit out a 200 mm car under almost any racing condition. Wider, lower, lighter; those 3 aspects produce performance most every time.

With the 235 mm kit, you can run front widths from 214 mm to 232 mm and rear widths from 220 – 235 mm. This adjustability fits the Protoform 905B, P35 and most nitro GTP bodies made for 1:10th 235 mm nitro racing.

So, in summary, while the Gen-X 10 is delayed a bit, the car is truly worth the wait. A plethora of goodies come on the car; CRC’s aluminum damper tubes, 2.5 mm pure carbon fiber chassis material, Pro diff with our exclusive diff hub, large-body threaded hard anodized center shock with adjustable height, red aluminum hardware, CRC 1:10th Pro-Strut Front end, its all good. I can tell you that we have seen many a cool car come through the shop here at CRC, but much like a hot blonde in a bikini, the prototype Gen-X 10 is attracting ALL the attention lately.

D'apres les conseils avisés d'un certain CB, pour les pneus en outdoor, purple devant et green ou yellow derrière.

Tyre tweak la veille, et tc2 20/25 minutes avant le roulage en ce qui concerne le traitement.

Pour la carro, la plus belle sera forcément la plus rapide !
