Introducing the RC MAKER SlimFlex 1.6mm Top deck Set for the Awesomatix A800R or A800MMX!
With Awesomatix introducing a new evolution of flex technology to the market, we now have more adjustment than ever before. However, we believe changes must be made to the top deck designs for this new system.
The A800R/MMX/MMXA Top deck features two separate short top decks, drastically reducing the leverage on the carbon. This means we need to make top decks narrower and thinner than normal to achieve similar flex.
We also must now note, that the flex of the top decks front and rear is entirely symmetrical, so in order to achieve the optimum flex point, we need to use different flex settings front and rear to achieve optimum balance, which is to shift the flex point forward of centre.
Our SlimFlex top deck has this built in. We have optimized the profile of the top deck such that with the same ST019 flex setting, the flex point is shifted forward to provide the perfect, forward bias flex point as what we achieved in our super successful Awesomatix MMCX Top deck!
We have reduced the width of the main struts of the top deck front and rear, to provide more flex overall throughout the whole length of the top deck, to provide more consistent flex than a very cut "tweezer" style top deck. The footprint of the front top deck is also smaller than the rear, to shift the flex point forward. The rear also has our signature flex brace, which allows a medium amount of flex across the rear bulkheads, and has proven to be very successful on a very large number of tracks and conditions!
We also have provided a second hole for an additional ST019 screw, which allows the top deck to be stiffened if necessary, in high traction conditions. There are also small bridge braces front and rear, which can be cut to provide additional flex.
Our SlimFlex Top deck has been tested on asphalt, ETS Carpet and CRC Black Carpet with great success on all surfaces. Our drivers reported the top deck making the easier to drive and more consistent, with increased corner speed, and in the end, faster lap-times!
