RC Maker CentraFlex BD10 top deck & post set

RC Maker have introduced their new CentraFlex top deck and post set for the Yokomo BD10 mid motor touring car. Conventionally in mid motor setups as seen on the BD10, 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 deck’s 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 the chassis’ flex. By installing or removing the flanged bearings either side of the spur gear, owners 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 design 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. The set is available as 2.0mm flex and 1.6mm ultra flex variant including a 6061 aluminium chassis post and two ball bearings with the upper decks also being available separately as an option fo either full set.
