Made for the Awesomatix A800 MMCX mid motor car is RC Maker’s new MMCX CentraFlex top deck set. Complimenting RC Maker’s successful “SlimFlex” top deck, the CentraFlex aims to offer a larger range of flex tuning options and characteristics for the A800 MMCX. Conventionally in mid motor setups, the front of the top deck is entirely split in order to be able to slide the top deck over the front belt. This provides a significant amount of flex to the front of the car only, creating quite an imbalance in the top decks flex characteristics. The CentraFlex has been developed to slide in from the side under the belts, and due to the single sided design, can be joined in front of the spur gear to prevent excessive front top deck and bulkhead flex, bringing back the balance of front to rear flex provided by the top deck. As well as this, RC Maker have also added an additional post in front of the spur, to add more options when tuning chassis flex. By installing or removing the two ST019 screws either side of the spur gear, racers can change the flex point of the car instantly, either moving it forwards or backwards to adjust the balance of the car.
As well as this tuning option, the part also has braces which can be cut on the top deck to even further alter the flex characteristics, by changing the flex between the bulkheads, and also moving the flex closer to the bulkheads. This provides a lot of option in not only adjusting the flex point of the car, but also the overall flex. Combined with the options provided under the chassis by the motor-mount, it can be a very powerful tuning option in getting the absolute most out of the car. Drivers report a smooth driving feeling, coupled with increased mid-exit corner and high speed steering over the original top deck. It is very adaptable to all different kinds of tracks, with the inserting and removal of ST019 and also cutting braces making substantial differences in the feeling and balance of the car. The set includes the 2.0mm carbon fibre top deck, 6061 alloy top deck post, 1.75mm post shim as well as a AFEP carbon adapter for the top deck post for drivers using RC Maker’s AFEP floating electronics plate.
