adds another National Championship!
John Wiita wastes the field in 12th 17.5!
CRC driver Mitch Witteman joins Wiita on the podium!
Minnesota CRC driver John Wiita takes his CRC Xti Altered Ego to a T.Q. and win at the ROAR Nationals in Omaha, NE.
CRC driver John Wiita took a deserving win at the 2014 ROAR Carpet Nationals held at the beautiful Hobbyplex in Omaha, NE. This venue hosted the 2008 version of the ROAR Nats and 6 years later the Nationals returned. As usual, a strong, deep field of competitors were present at the event. In 1/12th scale 17.5, a full 50% of the A-main competitors used CRC chassis. In the triple A main format, Top Qualifier John Wiita won 2 of the 3 A-mains to take the National Championship. John used CRC Pro Cut tires to hook his Alter Ego chassis to the CRC Fasttrak Racing Carpet. The dominant Black Art R8C was the overwhelming choice in the 1/12th 17.5 and 13.5 classes.
John's car was basically bone stock, no fancy option parts needed. The CRC Altered Ego is already the most affordable car in 1/12th racing, and again John Wiita's victory proves the race capabilities right out of the box. Of course, the CRC Xti Altered Ego can be run in most any configuration, inline battery (truly inline with the center of the car, not slung off to the side like an oval racer) or transverse. In this case, John chose the adjustability of the transverse position.
