Exotek Exo-Six chassis conversion for Evo6

Exotek Exo-Six chassis conversion for Evo6

Made for Tamiya’s Evo6 shaft-driven touring car is Exotek’s latest Evo-Six chassis conversion kit. Targeting stock and VTA racers the kit offers a new inline motor mount plate that eliminates one of the three Evo6 gearboxes for improved top speed, motor efficiency and reduced weight. The motor plate with a centrally mounted and triangulated base insures solid motor mounting and superb gear mesh while being independent of the top plate to reduce tweak and to provide better top plate flex traits. Furthermore the 2.25mm quasi weave chassis is stiffer than the stock chassis for improved handling in higher grip track conditions. With a left side motor position also torque steer is eliminated while a motor position further back helps with high-speed steering and low-speed stability. The included one piece, hard anodised spur mount/input shaft eliminates the play and vibration of the stock unit and a new LiPo cradle system with adjustable sliding holders allows to adjust the weight balance to your liking. The conversion is compatible with the Evo6 kit and also the TB04 v1 and v2 when combined with the new Exo-Six to TB04 parts pack.


Also new is the above mentioned Exo-Six to TB04 parts pack that allows to convert TB04 v1 and v2 kits using the Exo-Six chassis conversion kit. Included are alloy steering cranks, a 1-piece servo mount, 42mm front hinge pins, steering crank bearings, top plate posts, a steering turnbuckle as well as mounting hardware. Last but not least is a battery tabs and post set for the Exo-Six, Exo-Five and Pro4x2. Machined delrin tabs bolt onto threaded alloy posts which in turn bolt into the alloy battery rail holds on the chassis for secure, tapeless battery holding. Included with the set come shims to adjust the post height to match the LiPo height.
