New from Exotek come two aluminium option parts for the Team Durango DEX410 and DETC410 kits. First up is the Flite vented motor plate for Team Durango’s 2WD buggy. The 100 percent CNC-machined vented motor plate keeps the motor running cooler and longer for that extra edge. Aggressive cut-outs allow the heat that builds up inside the gear cover to vent out thus lowering overall motor temps greatly. The extra machining reduces the weight down to 16g, making the plate over 5g lighter than stock, but the critical motor mounting areas are still intact to maintain solid motor mounting and gear mesh. The plate is available in gold or black anodising and it easily mounts as MM3 or MM4 configuration with the Exotek logos laser etched on both sides of the plate.

New from Exotek come 7075 aluminium rear wheel axles that are usable on the Tamiya TRF419, 418, 417, TB04 and Evo6 as well as the Team Durango DETC410. The parts are designed for expert touring car drivers who seek for an extra advantage in spec class racing as the alloy axle scrubs weight on the expense of some durability. The parts weigh in at only 1.55g per piece and they greatly reduce rotating mass and unsprung weight but due to their aluminium construction they are not recommended for modified racing or tracks with hard track barriers. They are compatible with new G clip or older screw type TRF CVD axles and come polished and hard anodised.

Exotek have three new aluminium option parts for the Team Associated B5 buggy available in the form of a 3-gear motor plate, an angled front hinge pin brace and a B5M rear hanger set. Starting with the motor plate, the part is specially designed for the use with the new 3-gear transmission and it comes machined from high-quality aluminium. The vented design with heavy machining not only reduces the weight but also allows for improved heat dissipation of the motor and slipper clutch. Weighing in at 13g the plate is around 6.5g lighter than the stock part and it is available in blue or black anodising.

Exotek Racing have new option parts for the HB D413 1/10th scale 4WD buggy available in the form of aluminium wing mounts, an alloy diff cap and a spring perch set. Starting with the wing mount set, the sturdy looking parts are CNC-machined from 7075 aluminium and they offer a lightweight design to minimise weight gain. They are designed to use low-profile M3 screws to mount the wing and they allow to run high and low wing positions by simply rotating them by 180 degrees. Included with the factory orange anodised parts are four M2.5 tower bolts for easy installation.

Exotek have new option parts for the Team Durango DEX210 buggy available in the form of a 12mm aluminium hex set and alloy wing mounts for mid motor converted buggies. Starting with the wheel hex adapter set the precision machined parts are of a clamping design and made for the use on the rear of the DEX210 2WD and the front of the DEX410 4WD buggy. They allow the use of industry standard 12mm hex wheels such as the ones from Team Associated, TLR or the pre-glued Schumacher EOS handout wheels. The hex adapters come gold anodised, in sets of two and including 1.6mm hard steel pins and 2mm screws.

New from Exotek for the TLR 22-4 4wd buggy are a new rear camber block and front shock tower. The rear camber block has been made from heavy duty machined 7075 and they have added 2 additional and important higher roll centre mounting points at the bottom of the camber mounts. The new lower mounting points are excellent for freeing up the buggy at the rear for more mid corner steering but also increased on power traction and stability. The front shock tower has been made from stealthy matte finish 5mm thick carbon fibre. Much stiffer and stronger for consistent damper action yet still light weight due to its extra machining and the wide open shape allows air to pass through for better body aero. The one piece shock tower eliminates the lower camber mount for improved durability and uses flat head screws for better shock tower alignment onto the bulkhead.

From Exotek comes an aluminium front bulkhead for the Team Associated B44.3 buggy. Machined from 7075 material the part incorporates two rubber arm bushings that help protect the front factory arms from cracking. The bushings coned shape holds the arms firmly in place but compresses down to absorb hard forward hits and the sleeved rubber portion dampens the arms and hinge pins further. The bulkheads also fits the B44.2 and it comes blue or black anodised and laser-etched.

Exotek introduce new carbon fibre and aluminium option parts for Losi’s Mini 8ight-T off-road truck. First up is the carbon bottom plate set that includes a 2.25mm thick main chassis plate and a heavy duty machined alloy nose plate. The main chassis offers a sleek factory carbon look and a lighter weight while the machined motor area allows the use of some larger diameter motors. In combination with Exotek’s 8ight-T servo mounts a larger 1/10th low-profile servo can be used for extra steering performance while the new optional shorty battery blocks help to fit 2S LiPo shorty battery packs. Included with the set comes mounting hardware and a decal sheet and the set can be used with the stock top plate or Exotek’s optional top deck.
