Reflex Racing TC7.1 carbon fibre top decks

Coming from Reflex Racing and made for the Team Associated TC7.1 touring car are three new top decks. First up is the vertical top deck kit that was designed to make the TC7.1 take advantage of the adjustment characteristic of a vertical frame top deck. Vertical top decks provide better forward bite due to the increased fore and aft rigidity of the chassis. They also provide for a platform where flex adjustment can be isolated at different points of the chassis through using stiffening posts which allows for a more adaptable flex characteristic based on the track conditions. The vertical top deck setup will excel in outdoor tracks with long sweeping corners and also indoors when used in high bite conditions. Additionally, when used with Reflex Racing’s pitch control system, it allows for fully symmetrical flex characteristic on the car.

Next up is the 2.0mm high response carbon fibre top deck for the TC7.1 and TC7. It is cut out of 2.0mm quasi carbon fibre and is designed to increase the response in high bite conditions. It works great in combination with a carbon, flex aluminium or solid aluminium chassis when conditions call for it. Last but not least is the 1.5mm soft carbon fibre top deck for the TC7.1 and TC7. It is to be used in conditions where more side to side flex is called for. The top deck works great with Team Associated’s stiff aluminium chassis and also works great with flex aluminium like the Fenix or RSD chassis on asphalt.
