The latest touring car to receive Smokem Racing’s MYD carbon fibre top deck treatment is Yokomo’s BD10 mid motor kit. Developed during the recent months, Smokem ultimately settled on a design that features a narrow 9mm front section which was found to deliver balanced flex characteristics despite the asymmetric design. The result is improved traction, increased in-corner steering and corner speed. The MYD design ensures the top deck will never make contact with the motor as the chassis flexes, with clearance for large-pinioned spec class gearing. The top deck can also be easily removed, making spur gear and belt changes a breeze. A distinctive feature of the MYD top decks is the large tuning hole that utilises a bearing to be fastened through to the top deck post. Using the Smokem MYD tuning kit, racers can tune the amount of float the top deck has to deliver different flex characteristics to best suit their needs.
