Introducing the first in our SlimFlex range of Enhanced Carbon Chassis’, the Awesomatix A800 Mid Motor Series, MMCX and MMX. Tested and developed for over 6 months by Ryan Maker, and several team drivers around the world, we have developed a chassis that we feel improves on the original chassis.
We have narrowed the chassis all round to provide less scrubbing in corners, leading to increased corner speed. We have been able to do this on the sides, thanks to bringing the battery mounts in slightly to allow a overall narrower chassis. The very front and rear of the chassis have also been narrowed thanks to removal of the additional holes for “short arms” which are not often used anymore. Removing this material reduces scrubbing in the major spots on the chassis under chassis roll.
One major change on the SlimFlex chassis is the removal of the “through” spool and diff cutouts. We have pocketed these only 1mm deep, which provides a much more rigid front and rear. This directs the flex back the the centre of the chassis for more consistent handling. Many setups now are without the front C26 brace on the bulkheads, leading to excessive bulkhead flex, giving more steering but also making the car inconsistent. Thanks to the pocketed cutouts, there is now significant less horizontal flex between the bulkheads, so you can run without the C26 brace and not get as much flex in the bulkheads on the horizontal axis, but maintain the “caster flex” to increase steering. As well as this, the pocketed cutouts also improve aerodynamics by not allowing as much air up into the chassis, which ultimately improves the downforce.
Finally, the chassis profile has been slightly modified to move the overall flex point of the chassis forward. Featuring a standard width profile in the middle-rear section and narrower profile in the middle-front section than the standard chassis, providing the car with more steering, which is very often required on asphalt tracks! To add increased rigidity to an often hard wearing part of the chassis, the very rear has been extended by 0.5mm to prevent the chassis holes or surface becoming fragile and breaking under high wear.
All of these features combined bring you a chassis which we believe provides more steering and corner speed, whilst making keeping the car easy to drive and stable.
Our chassis are precision cut and countersunk on our CNC machine, in house in Australia from high quality 3K 2.2mm carbon.
- Significantly reduced footprint for less scrubbing and more corner speed
- Recessed diff and spool cutouts for optimum flex and aerodynamics
- Removed uncommonly used “short arm” holes from chassis for increased strength and allowing narrower footprint
- Precision CNC Machined in Australia from High Quality 3K 2.2mm Carbon Fiber
