Any test yet? Looks like a CEFX body with more downforce

Good eye Tres!


So far, all the response we've had towards the body (from people who have ran it) is very good. Steers very well, but it's not overly aggresive where it wants to toss the rear of the car around. It's plenty stable, without sacrificing steering.

I'll have to get one as soon as AMC in the UK get them.

Want to see how it will compare to my current shell of choice, the Corally Mercedes!

I haven't had a chance to run them back to back yet, should next week.



Here is the press release that was put out today -


CRC Press Release - 9/15/04

CRC is proud to announce the release of our new 1/12th Courage C60 Evo 3 LMP body (p/n 4160). This marks CRC's first entry into the world of lexan body molding. The body is the result of the CRC boys' love for Formula 1 and LeMans style race cars, and the fact that there is just not enough open cockpit style bodies available for 12th scale. The product was enhanced with extensive testing and design work from our European race team.

The open cockpit design of the C60 Evo3 is perfect for 12th scale as it keeps the CG down and creates less wind resistance than closed or "bubble" type cockpits. The aggressive styling of the front end helps the car to steer very well, while the rear deck and side dam area are shaped just right to keep it planted on the track. Also, the C60 Evo is molded out of lightweight .020 lexan to keep the weight down, with clear film on the out side to simplify paint cleanup. IFMAR and EFRA legal, soon to be on ROAR's list as well.

We are very pleased with the performance of the body so far, and we are proud to have this be the body that introduces us to the racers as the hobby's newest body maker. We hope you'll give it a try and let us know what you think. For questions, comments, feedback, etc., please visit the Team CRC forum at www.teamcrc.com

Default Nice Body, BUT?

OK, This is a GREAT looking body for the 12th Scalers, but can we talk CRC into doing something similar for the 10th scale pan cars
in preferably the 235mm width?

I think it's ugly and it looks nothing like any 1:1 car.

i dont think it looks ugly..but i do agree it looks nothing like a 1:1 scale car..which is one reason why it won't be legal for BRCA use as they state it must look something like a 1:1 scale car

which is a shame because this shell looks like it will handle real good.
