Coming from Exotek are the new Flite front axles for the TLR 22 4.0 and an aluminium top shaft for the Yokomo YZ2. Starting with the front axles, the Flite titanium front axle shafts include a 12mm front hex and at 3.5g per set they greatly reduce unsprung weight over the stock axles. Machined from high-quality titanium they are almost as strong as steel but much less prone to bent as the aluminium axles. The rounded and angled hex profile makes wheel installation extra quick and easy and the axles are a direct fit on the TLR 22 4.0.
Coming from Exotek is a motor fan clamp-on set for most of today’s 1/8th scale electric brushless motors. The mounting bracket has multi-mount features that allow the fan to be angled or parallel with the motor can. The mount is designed for use with high power 40mm and 30mm fans and it is machined from high-quality aluminium and available in anodised black, blue or orange colour. The clamp fits all motors with a diameter surface of 39.5mm to 40.5mm.
Coming from Exotek are new option parts for the TLR 22 4.0 buggy and the 22SCT 3.0 short course truck. Starting with the buggy-related part, new is a carbon fibre battery strap for laydown gearbox’d 22 4.0 kits that features a special “V” shape that will not interfere with the speed controller wires when taking the battery mount, meaning shorter wires can be used. The carbon strap includes an alloy hinge plate for secure mounting and it works with the stock clips and posts or the optional Exotek 22 3.0 twist nut post set.
Exotek have introduced two new aluminium steering bellcrank sets for the Xray XB4 and the HB Racing D216 buggies. Both are machined from high-quality 7075 aluminium and they are of a heavy duty yet lightweight design. Four extra bearings replace all bushings and crunch sleeves for the steering plate make for wobble-free, smooth and long lasting operation. The XB4-specific set fits the current and also the older spec kits while the D216 part is also a direct replacement, matching the stock geometry.
Coming from Exotek are new aluminium option parts for the Team Associated B6 and B64 off-road kits. First up is an aluminium front camber mount for the B6 and B6D. The heavy duty 7075 alloy bulkhead is intricately machined to reduce its weight to only 15 grams, which is only four grams more than stock, while insuring its heavy duty construction. The part maintains stock geometry and it is available in polished factory blue or black.
Coming from Exotek and made for the HB Racing D216 buggy are a carbon fibre side rail set as well as titanium front axles and quick change shock mounts. Starting with the chassis rails, the set is made from high-quality 5mm carbon fibre material and it increases the stiffness of the chassis for sharper handling on all race surfaces. Attached to the chassis the parts also help to seal up the body when used with optional hook and loop straps. The kit also includes heavy duty alloy battery posts and steel hardware but the stock plastic LiPo holders can be trimmed down if it is preferred over the included alloy posts.
Coming from Exotek are new option parts for the Kyosho ZX6.6 and the Team Associated B6 buggies. Starting with the Kyosho parts, new are the heavy duty 5mm carbon fibre front and rear shock towers for the company’s current 1/10th 4WD buggy. Made of high-quality 5mm carbon fibre and weighing in 11g for the front and 13.4g for the rear shock tower, the parts add durability and overall rigidity by replacing the standard composite plastic shock towers. This results in a more consistent handling especially on high-grip tracks. Both towers are cut from glossy finish carbon fibre and they are available separately.
Exotek have released a bunch of new option parts for Kyosho’s RB6 series of buggies. First up is a 5mm carbon fibre rear shock tower for the RB6.6. Mid motor specific, the shock tower is of a heavy duty design yet lightweight at 16g with the more robust material than the stock plastic part making for consistent handling on high-grip tracks. Designed with a reinforced cut at the shock posts for added strength and a low centre cut for improved wing air flow and a lower centre of gravity.
