Rebellion-RC A800 MMCX narrow main chassis

RC-Carbonstore have introduced the new Rebellion-RC narrow carbon fibre main chassis kit for the Awesomatix A800 MMCX mid-motor touring car. Due to the use of much harder carbon fibre material compared to the stock main plate, the designers were able to create a chassis that is 8mm narrower than the stock plate, without sacrificing overall stiffness and flex characteristics, which results in a lot less chassis scrubbing during hard cornering. To further gain advantages of the new narrow design, the old short lower arms mounting positions were removed in favour of a streamlined design that further adds ground clearance during cornering or while riding curbs. In addition to making the chassis slimmer, the main plate also features a 4.5mm more forward battery and a 2.5mm more forward servo position in order to gain smoother corner apex steering while getting a more stable rear end under acceleration. The slimmer chassis design also allowed to reposition the anti-roll bars without having to change anything to the wires or mounts. Other new features include slightly enlarged motor cutouts that allow for easier ESC wire routing underneath the motor can while also preventing the motor from touching the chassis. In order to optimise overall flex, the under-spool and under-diff cutouts were reshaped while additional mounting positions for Rebellion-RC’s new MMCX weight set allow easy mounting of the floating receiver and fan mount plate as well as the forthcoming new Y-stiffener. The chassis is rounded out by mounting positions for Rebellion-RC’s signature under-battery rubber dots, a 0.3×45 degree lower chamfer for looks and durability and it is available in 2.0mm, 2.2mm and 2.5mm thickness.
