Exotek DEX210 motor plate & DETC410 diff cams

Exotek DEX210 motor plate & DETC410 diff cams

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.

Exotek TRF, TB & DETC410 alloy rear wheel axles

Exotek TRF, TB & DETC410 alloy rear wheel axles

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.
