CRC have announced details about their new Open-X pod for their 1/12th scale chassis, which features a new pivoting center standoff that moves with the rear pod. This center stand off braces the center shock mounting area and the top plate, allowing the racer to remove the left hand side of the top plate and the left hand side of the bulkhead. This open side frees up a good amount of space for motor wires and sensor wires as there is no interference with the wires on the Open-X pod. This was all possible because of the original Gen-X design with the vertical X-pod rear brace. This rear brace, combined with the center pivot standoff, allows the use of the new Open-X graphite top plate and the wide open left side aluminum bulkhead.
