Default I was curious about this setup as well?

This looks like the old top deck cut. I already did the mod ages ago, nothing new really.

It is right that! The Worlds chassis is thicker and has less flex than the standard one. So with the cut top deck I think Juho tried to regain the "traditional" flex situation. The topdeck on the picture is just a spare part of my TC6 which had a date with my Dremel. Not a new part, just a Juho ETS copy to fit the new chassis.

Thanks. I was beginning to think, with the lack of response, that no one knew the reason for this.

Heh, WE chassis is more stiff then std one.

That is reason why Juho was using cutted top deck

Btw, I'm wrong that I use on my carbon part 90deg cutter cnc device to made deeper holes, all holes?

Head of screws are slighty up then flat chassis (ti from 3racing).

Looks like Tower got a few more TC6.1FT kits to sell. For the same price as the WCs.
