RC Maker BD10 Slimflex chassis & weight options

RC Maker have introduced their new Slimflex carbon fibre chassis and floating electronics plate for the Yokomo BD10 touring car. Tested and developed for months the chassis will improve on the original chassis, especially in low-med traction conditions. The chassis is narrowed all round to provide less scrubbing in corners, leading to increased corner speed. This increases flex, so to counteract this, the designers have recessed the diff and spool cutouts instead of cutting them all the way through. Not only does this bring the chassis back up to the desired amount of flex, it also improves aerodynamic performance by not preventing air from under the chassis being forced up into the car, detrimental to downforce. Overall, the chassis is slightly stiffer than the kit chassis, and provides improved response.

RC Maker have also developed their famous Floating Electronics Plate for this chassis. Adding a hole to our chassis from the original allowed to develop and fit this plate to give another floating weight option. The Floating Electronics Plate weighs 17g total, and floats the receiver, transponder and fan off the chassis to provide undisturbed flex. The chassis also offers the ability use RC Maker’s Weight Shift front weights to the chassis, by adding extra holes for a perfect fit, giving a place to add weight whilst also being adjustable left/right. The original holes are there also if drivers wanting to use the standard weights. The chassis are precision cut from high-quality 3K 2.2mm carbon.
