CRC Race Results: Battle Axe 2.0 and Black Diamond dominate Oval!
TeamCRC Racing - events and results

CRC Battle Axe 2.0 and Advanced Black Diamond Speedo

Reign Supreme at the Spektrum R/C New Year Dash

presented by CRC Raceway



Frank Ulbrik, Tom Firsching and Brian Wynn (not shown) used their Advanced Black Diamond LV speed controls to dominate the 14th Annual New Year Dash Carpet Oval Challenge in Oneida, NY. With it's debut in Las Vegas in September 2009, Advanced Electronics shook the world with the stunning performance of the Black Diamond. Now, with Advanced schooling other companies how to build a fast speed control, others have attempted to duplicate the speed, but the Black Diamond just keeps on winning. Ulbrik took his Prototype Hyperdrive machine to a dominant victory in the TOUR Expert 7.5 with the Advanced Black Diamond speed control powering his ride. In the 1:12th scale 10.5 class, Brian Wynn took his Razor II to a T.Q. and win with the Black Diamond providing the power.



Tom Firsching used his CRC Battle Axe 2.0 to win the Pro-Stock 10.5 class. Tom used the new option offset rear pod plates (1964 - top, 1966 - bottom, & 3274 - X-brace) and new wide body mount graphite cross plate (1970). The offset plates moves the motor left to the maximum. The new pod shifts the weight to the left, which is very critical with the lightweight 1s lipo packs. The new cross plate brings 2 changes to the Battle Axe. First, it is a 1-piece cross plate that stiffens the rear of the car by connecting the 2 side plates. Secondly, the cross plate widens the rear body posts to meet the flat area outside of the "greenhouse" on the current crop of 1/10th scale oval bodies. This allows the racer to use shorter, lower and lighter rear body posts.

While CRC is known for dominant road course cars, victories at the Snowbirds and now the New Year Dash prove the CRC Battle Axe 2.0 and CRC is very capable on the oval scene. And with the Battle Axe priced hundreds below the competition, it is a great car at a great price. Check it out!

The Battle Axe brings doom to the competition at a

price they can only dream about!



The 14th Annual New Year Dash was sponsored by Spektrum R/C. The race was held at the Kallet Civic Center in Oneida, NY. The competitors were greeted with super smooth CRC Fasttrak carpet in a beautiful theater setting. The pits were comfortable, the sound clear and booming. A concession stand on site kept the racers happy with coffee, food, water and pizza. The field of racers was very talented with teams from many manufactures present. To name a few, we had Tekin's Salvas brothers, McPappy's James Van Horn, RIP driver Mike O'Brien, Hyperdrive/Thunder Power racer Frank Ulbrik  and a good group from the CRC team.

The event was broadcast on Live R/C and used the superior scoring of R/C Scoring Pro. CRC also used a "seeding" round of qualifying where competitors were timed in a teched "practice" round. The best 4 consecutive laps in a row seeded the racer into a qualifying heat, a first on the oval! This seeding round made qualifying very clean and fair.
