Introducing our brand new set of bulkhead/Topdeck flex dampeners for the Mugen MTC2.
We realise these look a bit crazy, but they work extremely effectively. The idea came about due to the directly straight link stiffening the bulkhead and caster flex too much, and the removal of this brace on the MTC2 provides too much flex in this area which can make the car inconsistent. The main issue was the bulkheads flexing together under compression of the suspension causing inconsistency in the handling and the inability to tune to different tracks, which can now be minimised with these brand new flex dampeners!
Made from super thin 3K carbon, they attach to the bulkheads and Topdeck directly and provide consistent dampening (restriction) of the flex either on the bulkheads at the very front, or of the topdeck front or rear.
We believe this brace is an absolutely key tuning option for the MTC2 chassis, and now instead of only "On or Off" directly straight braces, we provide medium options to give the perfect balance for your track.
We recommend the stiffer variant for higher traction, and softer variant for lower traction. These braces provide more consistency and predictability overall on all traction levels, and allow you to fine tune your corner speed/steering balance. You can also double them up for increased stiffness and less flex.
Here is a list of options for this area of the car ranging from hardest to softest
