SlimFlex 2.0mm Carbon Topdeck Set for Yokomo BD12 (w/Screws)
Introducing our SlimFlex 2.0mm Carbon Topdeck Set for the Yokomo BD12!
Developed together with World Class Yokomo Factory drivers, this topdeck significantly improves the handling of your BD12! It substantially improves the flex characteristics and improves balance and corner speed, as proven in the lap-times!
The design of the topdeck is unique. Due to the shortened flex points, it was important for us to extend the topdeck material as long as possible, especially in the front, to get the desired flex characteristics. This shape shifts the flex point forward to improve balance. In the rear, we tested the same design as the front, however due to the A.T.F in the rear, we opted to go with a more conventional shape to ensure the ATF could work consistently. At the same time this gave us the optimal flex at the rear which needed to be a lot stiffer than the front due to the ATF.
The topdeck features 2 pivot screw positions in each for adding or removing flex (1 screw soft, 2 screws hard), which is a great way to tune the overall amount of flex in the front or rear of the car. The topdecks also feature "cuttable" tabs, which can shift the flex point forwards or backwards. Cutting the tabs will increase the flex of the car where cut.
Asphalt or low grip carpet, cutting one or both front tabs depending on the desired amount of steering (more cuts = more steering). However too much flex here could make the car hard to drive, so cut the tabs one at a time.
On Med/High traction carpet tracks or very high traction asphalt, it could be desirable to leave all tabs in place to stiffen the car and make it easier to drive on the high grip.
Our SlimFlex topdecks are precision CNC Machined in house in Australia from high quality 3K Carbon Fibre. They come with 2x Precision Machined Topdeck Screws which can be used to mount the front and rear topdeck (1 each). For additional flex tuning options and spares, you can grab the screws on their own HERE.
We also have a 1.6mm Option Available HERE for Low Grip Asphalt & Carpet (paired with Alu Chassis)
