Exotek WR8 Speed Chassis conversion & shock towers

Exotek WR8 Speed Chassis conversion & shock towers

New from Exotek and made for the HPI WR8 line of cars are the Speed Chassis conversion and the Speed Towers. Starting with the chassis, the carbon fibre conversion kit is made for the electric-powered WR8 Flux and it removes all extra weight and hardware for a super streamlined, race bred, speed run chassis. Rigid but light of weight the chassis is mated to a reinforced alloy nose plate for durability. Optimised weight balance is achieved via extra mounting holes that allow the motor and battery to be mounted at the rear of the chassis for improved rear traction and jumping balance and part of the package are also alloy battery cups for 2S or 3S hardcase batteries. The chassis is topped off with an alloy centre chassis brace and alloy servo mounts to also improve on lowering the overall centre of gravity.


Also new are the on-road optimised carbon fibre shock towers for the WR8 Flux and 3.0. Added geometries help reduce chassis roll and improve corner speeds and stability. Two rows of mounting holes accept the stock dampeners or 80mm 1/10 big bore front shocks such as the ones from the popular B5M or TLR22 buggy with the upper holes are used to lower the ride height on tarmac and the lower holes are used to raise the ride height for rally crossing. The towers are cut from 3mm thick carbon fibre and they are available separately.
