Exotek Racing have announced details of their new conversion set for the Team Associated RC18. Using a RC18 kit as a doner car, the conversion turns this car into a proper race vehicle, with 2mm carbon fibre chassis plate, optimised weight distribution, new bearing supported mono bellcrank steering as well as a carbon top deck and a host of other upgrades. Compatible with the RC18T, B and R, expect it to be released soon.
