Calandra Racing Concepts introduces the Carpet Knife Twenty5. The 2018 version of our World Championship winning line of 1/12th scale road racing cars. We are excited to mark our 25th year in the R/C model car racing industry. Yes, 25 years of making products, meeting people, enjoying this great hobby and of course, racing. We have met many racers and have won countless Regional, National and World Championships in all these years. This new release, the Carpet Knife Twenty5 or “CK25”, marks a great milestone within the organization, 25 years. Our first car released was the original Carpet Knife and now with 25 years of company history, we bring you the CK25.

Building on the World Championship winning heritage of the CRC Xti-WC, the CK25 takes all the race winning features and adds changes and improvements to adapt to current racing conditions. The new CK25 now features CRC's LCG (low center of gravity) Slider Rear Pod; the only rear axle housing that allows you to make infinite ride height adjustment WITHOUT molded plastic inserts or pucks. No fiddling with inserts. No 1mm "steps" to deal with, pure infinite adjustment. You want to add .3mm of ride height, you can do it with the slider pod. With inserts you are limited to .5mm or 1mm steps. This LCG slider pod allows very small tires and lowers the center of gravity almost 20% over our earlier pod. You want to make ride height on bare rims? You can with the CK25, this car makes the 3mm ride height minimum with bare rims on the car.

The new CK25 features some changes to the front end to respond to the changes in modern racing, small tweaks to better handle extreme high-grip and also low-grip, bumpy conditions. The front body mounts have been moved to a raised bumper/body mount plate. The bumper/body mount plate protects the chassis. Because it sits on the chassis, it allows for more chassis movement without touching the ground. The chassis has been substantially shortened to limit the front overhang past the tires and reduce the chances of the chassis touching the racing surface during high speed racing.

The CK25 also features an easy and convenient way to mount the servo. This hanging servo mount is suspended symmetrically from standoffs on each side of the chassis. With the symmetrical mounting on 2 screws, no chassis tweak is induced on a major impact. This system makes servo mounting and maintenance a breeze by having front-to-back and side-to-side adjustment slots.

Even the left rear clamping hub has received attention. Our new double clamping hub is perfectly balanced and the 2 symmetrical clamp screws provide more secure mounting than the single clamp screw used by every other manufacture of 1/12th cars.

CRC's "stock" or standard carbon fiber is of higher strength than most "standard" carbon fiber panels used in radio control. By using higher grade carbon fiber strands, CRC's standard material is a full 32% stronger than other standard grades.

In this day and age of big batteries with a lot of runtime, the importance of the race-ready weight of the car is sometimes forgotten or dismissed. In stock-spec style racing, lightweight equals fast lap times as it takes energy to both accelerate and turn a heavier car. The CK25 is the lightest competition 1/12th scale available weighing in under the weight minimum with competition electronics. As with all CRC designs, the CK25 will get you at or under the IFMAR/ROAR weight minimums to give the performance advantage needed to win.
