Exotek have introduced new option parts for the Xray XB4, XB2 and XT2 kits. First up is the Flite 72T centre spool set for stock class racing with the XB4 4WD buggy. The ultra lightweight centre spool set greatly reduces the rotating mass of the drivetrain for that extra boost in 13.5T and 17.5T spec racing. The Exotek spool set weighs 18g with the spur gear and the included coated hard steel outdrive cups. The machined 72T POM spur gear is included and bolts on to the lightweight alloy spool. The set is intended for non-boosted stock classes only and it is also compatible with 48 pitch Kimbrough-style spur gear.
Exotek have introduced a set of collars for the popular MIP hex wrenches. The identification collars complete the wrenches with easy to see colour-coded polished and anodised alloy collars. The items are also laser etched with matching metric size labels for the most popular sized 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm and 3.0mm. wrenches. The set includes four direct fit collars but no wrenches.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Tekno RC EB410 buggy is an aluminium steering crank set. The reinforced 7075 alloy design eliminates the problem of the hex bearing posts stripping in the plastic cranks, allowing for easier maintenance and disassembly and the set includes steel bearing posts that doesn’t mushroom when assembled which also makes for easier bearing removal. The steering cranks come in a special glossy navy blue anodising to match the remainder of the car’s optionals and they are compatible with both the stock and the Exotek steering rack.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Tekno RC EB410 buggy is the new Edge lightweight body shell. The body was designed to sit 8mm lower than the kit shell to lower the overall centre of gravity while offering a new look. Exotek have also taken great care to still allow the mounting of the fan above the motor and still allow normal height or low profile servo use. Clean lines are used throughout for a clean “aero” downforce package yet allows easy custom painting thanks to the smooth and rounded corners. The Edge body weighs in at a svelte 27g unpainted versus the 37g stock unpainted body thanks to a premium lightweight thickness polycarbonate that is a proprietary custom produced material only for Exotek that is much stronger and longer lasting. Included with the body come window masks but no wing.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Xray XB2 and XB4 line of buggies are new aluminium and carbon fibre option parts. First up is a 3-gear laydown motor plate with spur gear shield for the XB2. The 1-piece motor plate weighs in at a lightweight 12.5g with vent opening improving airflow and cooling. An integrated spur gear shield keeps the buggy’s body from rubbing for increased spur gear and body life. The plate comes polished and black anodised for a factory look.
Exotek have introduced new option part for the Exo-Six conversion kit in the form of an aluminium gearbox set, carbon fibre shock towers and a 48 pitch main gear. Starting with the gearbox, the bulkhead is machined from 7075 alloy and provides a solid tweak-free design that is about 8g lighter than each of the stock plastic gear boxes for a substantially lower centre of gravity and thus improved chassis roll. New camber mounting points are more inboard for smoother handling when running longer camber link lengths and more robust to resist breakages as in the stock plastic mounts. Additional features include new centre hold sway bar guide for less weight and easier alignment and raised 2mm top plate mounts allow for easier access to the motor screws and battery plugs. Last but not least do precise bearing guides make for a much more free drive train versus stock.
Coming from Exotek and made for the TLR 22-4 2.0 1/10th 4WD buggy is a 13.5 spec centre spool set. The super light slipper lock-out conversion greatly reduces the rotating mass of the 22-4 drive line for improved acceleration and lower motor temps which is needed in the very competitive 13.5 spec classes. The complete stock slipper assembly weighs in at 32g while the complete Exotek spool is only 19.7g. The axle is made of titanium to reduce weight but maintain durability and the locking plates are lightened polished aluminium. These eliminates the heavy steel shaft, slipper pads, springs and plates all while using the TLR spur gears and pulleys for easy replacement when needed. Due to the lightweight nature of the conversion it is recommended for 13.5T and 17.5T motors.
Exotek have introduced a range of new option parts for the Tekno RC EB410 1/10th 4WD buggy in the form of rear locking hinge pins, heavy duty steel and brass suspension blocks as well as an aluminium steering rack. Starting with the rear hinge pins, the titanium locking/captured hinge pin set with 2mm hex head eliminates the problem of the rear hub hinge pins sliding out of the arms during impacts. The design securely holds the hinge pins and hubs in the rear arm, thanks to the captured pin and lock nut design.
