The MYD top deck revolution continues with the release of the Xpress XQ10 version. The MYD top deck design was meticulously developed with numerous designs and prototypes evaluated over a range of conditions by the Smokem team over a 4-month period.
We settled on a design that features a narrow 9mm front section which we found to deliver balanced flex characteristics despite the asymmetric design. The result is improved traction, increased in-corner steering and corner speed. The MYD design ensures the top deck will never make contact with the motor or the spur gear as the chassis flexes. It also have plenty of clearance for large-pinioned spec class gearing. The MYD top deck can also be easily removed, making spur gear and belt changes a breeze.
A distinctive feature of the MYD top decks is the large "tuning hole" that utilises a bearing to be fastened through to the top deck post. Using Smokem MYD tuning kit, racers can tune the amount of "float" the top deck has to deliver different flex chracteristics to best suit their needs.
