Is it me or do the two piece top decks look like they don't use woven carbon fiber?

pre-production so it may have been fiberglass

It is a fiberglass composite that they have used in lower end kits typically. It has more flex than carbon so perhaps they are trying to use that instead of a thinner carbon deck. (example Xray 2mm versus 1.6mm upper deck)

Its fiberglass they call S2 and used for exactly that, it has more flex then CF of the same thickness.
But it also breaks down from use over time.

Its a good tuning option and material/part price is pennies compared to CF for the user budget.

I was going to buy one then I saw the h2e, that's clearly a development MI15.

In Europe the s2 top decks are pretty well always used with alloy chassis on carpet, and occasionally if you want a lot of top deck flex on asphalt. They’ve been around since the introduction of the Hgt.

Possible active rear tower down the track... just pure speculation, but separating the body mount from the tower makes that easier to do.

Schumacher released split S2 top decks for the Mi8HGT as a high flex option.


Mi9 carbon kit has a single carbon top deck. Mi9 alloy kit has split S2 top decks, but they don't really say why.


Split carbon top decks are an option they say makes the car safer to drive. I'm not sure if that comment is for the carbon or alloy chassis.

HGT owners can keep their chassis and top decks.
U8645 Alloy and U8563 CF are the same plates.

Explains what the extra set of servo mount holes were for in the HGT conversion.
HGT drivers can use a lot of the Mi9 parts if they dont want to pull a full kit.

To those of you who can read part numbers: do you think the top solid a-arms from the mi8 would fit?

Thanks!
