7075.it A800MMX LCG alloy chassis & top decks

Posted: 14 Jan 2020 05:07 AM PST

Coming from 7075.it and made for the Awesomatix A800MMX mid motor touring car are a new LCG aluminium main chassis and split aluminium top decks. Starting with the chassis, the main plate is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and it comes black anodised for wear and looks while machined silver edge details further enhance the visual appearance. Strategically machined holes make for optimised flex characteristics and incorporated into the design are also milled out sections to add brass weights that help to fine-tune the weight balance if needed. The chassis is available separately or including two front brass weights.

Another new part for the A800MMX is a split aluminium top deck. An optional part to replace the standard carbon fibre decks the alloy items allow to fine-tune the chassis’ torsional flex characteristics when using carbon fibre or alloy chassis. The top decks are machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium, they come black anodised and with machined silver edge details.

RSD X20 standard carbon top deck & bulkhead braces

Posted: 13 Jan 2020 11:54 PM PST

Reflex Racing have introduced more option parts for the Serpent X20 mid motor touring car. First up is a 2.0mm upper deck cut from standard carbon fibre. The top deck offers different flex characteristics than RSD’s Quasi carbon fibre deck, as it flexes similar to the 1.5mm Quasi deck side to side, but is stiffer fore and aft, giving the car a little more forward bite. The top deck is designed to increases response, gear selection range and belt clearance while being more durable than stock version and it comes with a matte surface finish to differentiate.

Also new are carbon fibre bulkhead braces for the X20. These were developed in order to change the flex characteristics of the chassis. By bracing the bulkheads at the top deck screws, the flex points of the chassis are moved closer to the centre line, which increases high speed stability and control. Additionally the braces provide more on power traction at whichever end they are being used. When using both braces, the car will stay a little bit flatter at high speed, will be easier on tyres, the response will increase in tight corners and the car will be easier to drive in sweeping corners. On the X20, as a bonus, the increased rigidity of the bulkheads protects the pulleys and top decks.
