Introducing the new RC Maker SlimFlex 1.6mm Topdeck Set for the Awesomatix MMX!
Our SlimFlex Topdeck has been tested on asphalt, ETS Carpet and CRC Black Carpet with great success on all surfaces. Our drivers reported the topdeck making the easier to drive and more consistent, with increased corner speed, and in the end, faster lap-times!
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 topdeck designs for this new system.
The MMX/MMXA Topdeck features two separate short topdecks, drastically reducing the leverage on the carbon. This means we need to make topdecks narrower and thinner than normal to achieve similar flex.
We also must now note, that the flex of the topdecks 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 topdeck has this built in. We have optimised the profile of the topdeck 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 Topdeck!
We have reduced the width of the main struts of the topdeck front and rear, to provide more flex overall throughout the whole length of the topdeck, to provide more consistent flex than a very cut “tweezer” style topdeck. The footprint of the front topdeck 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 topdeck 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.
