CRC Battle Axe 3.0 is the result of continuous refinement and product development at Calandra Racing Concepts. The Battle Axe gets its roots from CRC's 12th scale on-road racer, the Gen X, but this latest kit has been designed from the ground up to produce a well-balanced, highly adjustable, and user friendly tenth scale oval racer. Move over T-Bar cars, the Battle Axe is coming through.

The 3.0 generation oval car is all new and does not use much of anything from the 2.0 other than the front end. The biggest differences that make the car superior to the old one are the center pivot, rear pod, and even the chassis plate itself.

The center pivot is now offset Left to improve drive-off without jacking a bunch of wedge in the car. This allows the car to have a heavier Left front tire which helps the car get into the corner and roll the center without being too free off the corner.

The chassis has gone on an extreme diet. An incredible amount of material has been removed from the right side and all of the old NiMh cell slots are filled in to increase Left side weight. Overall, the chassis is smaller and lighter, but has increased Left side weight percentage.

Another awesome feature is the ability to add "static" (or "a fixed amount of") rear steer. All link cars (or "monoBall as some may call them) have the ability to add reactive rear steer by raising the front of the links. While this increases steering and response, it can make the car feel inconsistent or unpredictable depending on how hard you turn the wheel. Having static rear steer gets the car into the corner harder without the degree of rear steer changing as the chassis rolls. This makes the car feel much smoother and more predictable while making it turn-in like an animal. On many larger CRC Fastrak carpet surfaces this may not be a huge deal, but on really small short tracks and especially on "hook-n-loop" type commercial carpets, it's huge.

There are some other cool new features as well.

  • The vertical rear shock tower allows more adjustability of the side shocks without having to add or remove shims. It also allows for much shorter, stiffer body posts that help in the overall consistent, predictable feel of the car; as the body will not flex and move around as much while going around the track.
  • Molded, bolt-in battery bumpers locate the pack in place where you want it and make it so 1 wrap of tape is more than sufficient. This may not seem like a big deal, but we've seen some cars that have tape wrapping 3 ways around the battery, and in multiple layers. This not only looks ridiculous, it's expensive! good strapping tape isn't cheap, and even if it was, encasing your pack and chassis in multiple layers of tape looks awful and reduces ride height, forcing you to raise the whole car.
  • 3 CRC Encore Shocks and off-set rear pods with the correct length hubs.
  • Also now standard equipment in the kit is CRC's slider pods that are also standard on the new XTI road course car. They make ride adjustments super easy and feature a perfect bearing fit for a very free Axle fit with no play. They do NOT ever move when used properly; Worlds, Vegas, Cleveland, New Year Dash, Snowbird's, ROAR Carpet Nats... many events and we have not had the pods move, crash or not.
  • Nearly everything is adjustable on this car; wheelbase, width, shock position, rear steer, roll centers, battery position, shock angle and more. Kit now comes with a super lightweight foam bumper as well!
  • The car will come out of the box more track ready, more consistent, faster, lighter, & overall less expensive than ever before. There is not another oval car on the market that comes this complete out of the box within this price range, ...and is ready to go from the bench to the winner's circle. The only thing that will slow you down is all of your friends and competitors stopping you to take a look at the new ride!
