A lower deck? I've had bad luck with Serpent/Arrowmax carbon fibre, mine have always been warped pretty badly

Quality issues aside, this would definitely be something interesting to see. The chassis included in the carbon kit is 2.0mm IIRC - would be interesting to see the effects of a 2.5 or maybe even 3.0, but at that point, I would imagine that suspension geometry might begin to alter... or am I wrong about that?

Is it a 2.0?

Is it maybe 2.0 quasi?

Most kits come with a 2.25 chassis these days.

I know this is not a direct answer but I know Xray gear diff fits the X20. So if Awesomatix fits Xray then YES. Perhaps one step closer to your answer. lol

Short answer is NO, most TC's use 10x15mm bearings for the drive cups but Amesomatix uses a smaller bearing for its gear diff

The RSD 2.0mm top deck is worth the money on crc black carpet.

Would like to see a 2.5mm version.

Absolutely!! I just got back for racing at the Beachline track near Cocoa Beach and the RSD 2.0 top deck was the ticket to keep the car planted on the track and gave it a very consistent feel. Tomorrow I will post here my full review along with changes I made as the traction increased. I will also post a link to my setup that I used with the RSD 2.0 top deck.
