Who knows if the front end screw holes match the Assoc pieces and if the distance from mounting holes to inside axle edge are the same. You know where I'm going with this of course !!

Looks like real progress. Nice car Calandras.

Yes it is...But it comes fully loaded with all the red alumn hardware and parts. It comes with the lightweight Diff rings and diff kit. It comes with the CRC center shock and best of all it comes with Franks very adjustable front end that you wont have to buy small axles for it or caster blocks or anything...Its dialed right out of the box. I would say that the price increase is just from the front end alone as the cost of molds is NOT cheap!!! Compared to what we pay for TC's its still a bargain for almost twice as much track time

The holes are the same and you can use the New CRC front end on other cars. The only difference I have noticed is that the upper arm is a little shorter but I think that there are also different upper blocks to change that...Ie the upper mount can be flipped around to make the upper arm longer or shorter for more/less camber gain and roll movements.

I dont know for sure but would assume that it comes with 0, 5 and 10's....but someone from CRC would know the answer better on that part.

I like the looks of the car and the direction of the products. It is good to see an organization making new products and leading the market, especially in 1/12th scale. As soon as I can, I plan to order one.

sweet, front end is droolicious

but the trans mount and xpod seem slightly gimmicky, mainly because the x brace has to be beefier than is really necesary, and I question what the actual change in cg height is (partly because of the spacers used to bridge between the transponder ears and the chassis), or increase transponder countability.

but like EA said the front end looks pimp!!!!!

The reason behind the X pod more than anything is to allow ample room for motors (especially brushless) to get in and out and for the motor wires (brushless wires) to be run out the side of the pod with plenty of room. no more worrying about the pod binding up. Thats the reason the motor pod plates are designed the way they are too. By using the same one for each side it cuts down on machine time, cuts down on parts customers need to keep, and the "dip" in the top motor plate allows the motor wires to clear the body with no problem and stay away from the rear tire.

I would say that the X brace does lower the CG a little as the top plate is very small....every little bit counts!! The transponder hole is great...Its a proven fact that transponder signal strength is cut down when on top of the chasis or farther away from the track. The way it is on this car its completely flush with the bottom of the chassis so you get it lower and closer to the loop....I dont see how this could be a negative anywhere.

We shall see how it runs in a couple of weeks!!

Can't wait to check it out this weekend, Team CRC is heading north for Fastcats' Fall Classic/Cleveland warmup.

I was going to inquire about a conversion, but I see absolutely nothing on this car that would have come from a 3.2... it's all-new. Great work!
