Press release from Calandra Racing Concepts:
New LCG rear pod for the World Champion CRC Xti-WC car
New from Team CRC is a low CG (center of gravity) rear pod for the Xti-based cars. The new LCG motor pods are great for modern racing with tiny tires! Even with 38mm bare rims, 4mm of ride height! Slider adjustments make ride height changes a snap.
The new rear pod plates from Calandra Racing are made from super strong 7075-T6 aircraft quality aluminum, anodized in CRC's blood red with silver double machining. These new pods are designed for modern high-grip 1/12th scale racing with very small tires. The ride height adjustments are done with CRC's innovative "sliders", often copied, but never duplicated. No inserts, no spacers, no little washers to count or lose, just loosen the 4 screws, set the car on the desire ride height and tighten the screws! The pod is designed to allow plenty of ground clearance, in fact, 4mm of ride height is available even with bare rims on the car.
The center of gravity on this pod system has been lowered greatly. The overall height is lower, the bulk of the weight is near the bottom and even the upper motor screw has been lowered. The sliders are smaller and the upper plate now uses 2 screws instead of 3. Much lower CG with added strength and the ability to run tiny tires with a lot of ground clearance.
New rear brace with "CRC" machined in.
Strong, lightweight and allows SUPER SMALL tires!
CRC invented the Slider EZ adjust pod, now in LCG!.
To convert, just bolt to your existing bottom and top plate.
The new pods use 2 mounting screws on the top plate. You can leave the top plate or chop the 3rd screw section with a rotary tool as shown above
