Exotek Micro RS XPro chassis conversion & optionals

Exotek Micro RS XPro chassis conversion & optionals

Exotek introduce a range of option parts for the HPI Racing Micro RS4 in the form of the XPro chassis conversion, front steel CVD axles and an alloy front spool. Starting with the conversion kit, the set’s race-inspired design utilises micro servos and LiPo packs for true 1/18th scale micro style performance and looks. It makes use of 1.5mm USA-made carbon fibre for lighter weight and factory racing looks and includes a 1.5mm fibre glass T-plate for improved rear suspension flex and handling. The chassis allows to run 140mm or 150mm wheelbase settings with the T-plate being mounted via a steel block. The weight of the block also adds weight to the rear end for better handling with lighter micro sized LiPo batteries. Furthermore the set includes secure adjustable alloy servo mounts for use with micro-sized servos, it comes with a machined alloy front suspension arm pin holder and also an adjustable ESC tray that also serves as the micro battery strap.

Exotek T5 & DEX210 Flite titanium front axles

Exotek T5 & DEX210 Flite titanium front axles

Exotek have new Flite-series titanium front axles for the Team Associated T5 and the Team Durango DEX210 available. Starting with the Team Associated part, the precision machined front axles weigh in at only 5g a pair while stock axles are 11g meaning a significant reduction of rotational mass as well as unsprung weight. The axles are nearly as strong as steel and they come in a polished finish for added looks. Also new are titanium wheel axles for the Team Durango DEX210 buggy. Offering a 12mm hex and an offset design the shafts allow to use standard B5 front wheels. Like the T5 Flite axles they significantly reduce unsprung weight and rotational mass compared to steel axles and they come machined to an eye-catching finish.

Exotek DEX210 RM HRC bulkhead conversion

Exotek DEX210 RM HRC bulkhead conversion

New from Exotek comes the rear motor 7075 aluminium bulkhead conversion for rear motored DEX210 series cars including the v1, v2 and ST. Co-designed with the Team Durango race factory and produced by Exotek the new concept rear motor bulkhead was used by Jörn Neumann to win the 2014 Euro Championships. Made of high-strength 7075 alloy and machined down to reduce overall weight, the new RM bulkhead provides lower inner camber link mounting points for improved high roll centre options as well as chassis mounted alloy inner ball stud mounting. The construction also re-locates the shock tower to be in front of the rear shocks and it changes the flex characteristics of the chassis and gearbox. On top of that the design makes for easier gear box access and removal and the wing can be mounted more forward or in the rear stock gearbox location. The set is available in factory gold or black anodising and it is recommended for experienced modellers as it requires hand cutting of the stock plastic gearbox.

Exotek DEX210v2 carbon rear shock tower

Exotek DEX210v2 carbon rear shock tower

New from Exotek and made for the Team Durango DEX210v2 is a rear carbon fibre shock tower. Offering a heavy duty design and a stealthy matte finish the tower, made from 5mm thick material, is much stiffer and stronger that the stock part for consistent damper action while being still light of weight due to its extra machining. Also the wide open shape allows air to pass through for better wing aero. The shock tower weighs in at 12.5g and fits the original DEX210 as well.
