Exotek Racing have new aluminium option parts for the Team Durango 210-series 2WD vehicles in mid motor configuration available. First up is a rear bulkhead conversion made of high-strength 7075 aluminium and machined down to minimise weight. The part provides standard width but lowered inner camber link mounting points for improved high roll centre options. Also gear box access and removal is much easier as the suspension stays fully in place when the gear box is removed. The stronger inner ball end mounting makes for more durable camber link mounting and the design also reinforces the gear box mounting. The part, that fits all versions of the DEX210, DESC210 and DEST210, uses stock Team Durango type 2 or Exotek type 2 rear suspension hangers and included come spacers and hardware. The conversion is recommended for experienced modellers as it requires hand-cutting of the original gear box.

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.
