Available soon from Exotek is the F1R2 Pro conversion kit for the Tamiya F104 and F103. The follow-up model of the F1R received a make-over in order to create a chassis that is not overly complex but strong and consistent. The chassis kit makes use of what Exotek call a hybrid link technology, it basically combines all positive aspects of the classical T-bar suspension with the responsiveness and tuning possibilities of a link-type car to create a platform with improved bump absorption capabilities making it ideal for rubber tyre racing. The new rear pod geometry makes for more progressive damping and increased forward bite while the new twin side dampers allow for equal side-to-side dampening.

Exotek Racing introduce new low roll centre aluminium suspension mounts for the Team Durango DEX210 buggy. Available are a RF Hanger with shims, and two LRC mounts with standard or +0.5° toe-in setting. Starting with the RF mount, the part allows to use a 2mm lower roll centre with 0° or 1.5° kick-up or the standard roll centre with 0° or 1.5° kick-up by adding the included shims under the hanger. The easy shimming option does away with the need to disassemble the whole rear end of the vehicle only to change the roll centre or kick-up settings. The set is machined from 7075 aluminium, comes anodised and works with the DEX210 alloy chassis, DIMEC type A or the optional Exotek chassis both in MM and RM configuration.

Exotek introduce this heatsink for the use with pan and F1 cars. The special design allows the air to flow through the large fin section while the back of the heatsink gives enough clearance for high axle F1 or low axle 1/12th cars. The low-profile design also gives adequate body clearance and vented openings allow ‘open can’ motors to breath. The heatsink is machined from 6061 aluminium, comes in blue or black colour and simply clips onto the motor with no fasteners needed.

Exotek Racing have new option parts for the Tamiya F104 chassis available in the form of alloy side spring mounts and a fibre glass front spacer plate.

The plate is machined from black G10 fibre glass and is placed under the front lower arm set.
