RC Maker have presented their new V2 Top deck range for the Mugen MTC2 and one-piece range for the Awesomatix A800MMX. Building on the development of their first MTC2 version, they wanted to produce their own pivot screws to improve the adjustability and efficiency of the flex, and also strength of the top decks whilst achieving maximum pinion clearance. The end result is the V2 & their new SlimFlex 1-piece. With the twin top deck being the standard on the A800MMX, benefits were still being seen of the single-piece design shifting the flex point forward for increased steering. RC Maker developed two very successful top decks for the MMCX years ago, and have optimised their design, adjustability and pinion clearance, to bring you the SlimFlex 1 piece & CentraFlex top deck range for the A800MMX. They also have a cool little turnbuckle holder tool. This concept was originally developed by MR33, they have tackled it a different way and think it helps a lot to keep your ball cups flat while making adjustments to your camber and caster.
