Exotek have two new aluminium option parts for the Team Associated B5 and B5M buggy available in the form of the vented Flite motor plate and an aluminium rear ballstud mount for the B5M mid motor buggy. Starting with the motor plate, the CNC-machined part sports aggressive machining to make the part not only 6.5g lighter than the stock motor plate but to also improve motor and slipper heat dissipation. The critical motor mounting area was left out with machining to maintain a solid base for motor mounting and gear mesh adjusting. The part, that is available in blue and black colour, is designed for the use on indoor clay and carpet environments but a shaved bottom allows for debris discharge if needed.

Exotek have new option parts for Kyosho’s RB6 buggy available in the form of aluminium wing mounts for mid motor converted buggies as well as delrin big bore cartridge housings. Starting with the wing mounts, the parts made from 7075 aluminium are of a heavy duty design for extra durability while being light of weight at the same time. Threaded holes allow to mount the wing using low profile M3 screws, doing away with the need to use body clips. The mounts come red anodised to match with the remainder of Exotek’s Kyosho option parts.

Exotek Racing introduce a carbon fibre main chassis plate for the Team Durango DEX210v2 2WD buggy. Made from 2.5mm USA-made material the chassis scrubs 35g of weight, it is of a heavy duty design and usable with both mid and rear motor converted vehicles. The lighter weight makes for a more nimble response and with slightly more flex than the alloy chassis it also increases overall grip, making it ideal for spec class racing. Included is also a 7075 alloy nose plate for longer wear and extra strength at the chassis bend while machined pockets at the rear of the chassis allows the use of LRC option suspension hangers.

Exotek introduce two carbon fibre front shock towers for the TLR 22 2.0 and the Kyosho SC6 truck. Starting with the TLR part, the shock tower is made of 5mm high-quality carbon fibre and much stiffer and stronger than the original composite item resulting in a more consistent damper action. Extra machining reduces unnecessary weight while improving airflow through the shock stay at the same time. The tower fits both the 22 and newer 22 2.0. Also new and made for the Kyosho SC6 and RT6 is a 4mm front shock tower. Again made to improve shock action the part offers additional outer shock mounting holes for added tuning options while lower countersunk holes insure exact mounting and alignment which is critical for taller shock towers.
