Exotek have introduced new titanium Puck bones for MIP bi-metal driveshaft systems as well as a heavy duty 81T POM spur gear for the B64 buggy. Starting with the driveshaft dog bones, they are available as 76mm front bones for the Team Associated B64 buggy and also as shorter 67mm bones for the TLR 22 4.0 and AE B6 67mm CVA/hub/axle sets. At half the weight of steel and twice the strength of aluminium the driveshaft dogbones increase durability and reduce wear and tear. The replacement parts for the MIP bi-metal bone puck sets are machined from polished and laser-etched Ti 6-4 titanium and they come as pairs and separately for the front and rear of the buggy.
Made for Xray’s XT2 2WD stadium truck are new 5mm carbon fibre shock towers from Exotek. Cut from USA-made glossy-finish 5mm material the towers are light of weight and they offer a more consistent handling especially on high-grip surfaces compared to the standard composite parts. The towers match the stock geometry and are available as front, rear laydown and rear standard gearbox variant – the latter two include mounting hardware and utilise countersunk screws to keep the tower squared up on the gearbox and tweak-free when used with the supplied csk hardware.
Exotek have introduced the Flite 75T centre spool set for the Team Associated B64 buggy. The ultra lightweight centre spool greatly reduces the rotating mass of the B64 for that extra boost in 13.5T and 17.5T blinky spec racing. The set weighs 18g with the spur gear whereas the stock diff weighs in at 42g in total. A machined 75T POM spur gear is included and bolts on to the lightweight alloy spool. Included also are coated steel outdrive cups for long lasting wear and are machined to accept the stock steel B64 centre bones or the super light weight MIP puck bone system for the B64.
Exotek have introduced an aluminium front pivot mount for the TLR 22-4 2.0 1/10th 4WD off-road buggy. Machined from 7075 alloy and coming black anodised the part offers a heavy duty design and it prevents costly and time consuming DNFs from failures of the stock plastic pivot mount. The mount is machined out for lightness and it weighs in at only 17.6g. Included are two M3 set screws to lock down the hinge pins.
Exotek have introduced a front camber block with integrated anti-roll bar mount for the TLR 22 4.0 and 3.0 series of buggies and trucks. The heavy duty alloy front camber block was designed for the use with TLR sway bars and it is machined down to seven grams to minimise weight but made with 7075 alloy to increase the strength over the stock piece. The part uses set screw holes to remove excess play from the sway bar and it comes polished, anodised black and laser-etched for wear and looks.
Exotek have introduced a 74T 48 pitch spur gear for the Xray XB4 1/10th scale buggy. Aimed at 13.5T stock racing, the main gear allows to gear higher thanks to the smaller tooth count, and to run bigger pinions without cutting and modifying the stock motor plate. The heavy duty machined delrin gear includes M2.5 hardware so that it reverse mounts to the spur while allowing the spur teeth to clear the hardware.
Coming from Exotek are new option parts for the Team Associated B6 series of 2WD buggies. First up is the upper steering brace and sleeve set. The kit strengthens the steering assembly from bending at the mounting screws as well as provides support to keep the steering crank bearings from binding and breaking thanks to the included crush sleeve set. The brace is shaped to fit into the pocketed area of the upper plate and keeps the steering from bending or flexing at the bearing screws. At only 1.2g for all three parts the set hardly adds any weight to the front end of the vehicle.
Coming from Exotek is the P-Zero GT 190mm USGT class body shell. Exotek’s first ever body for the highly competitive USGT/GT classes features an aggressive splitter, flared fenders, low slung hood, downforce inducing side skirts, compact cockpit and extra rear spoiler elements for the most aggressive aero package with minimal drag. The body has two trim lines marked on the bottom; one for low profile shock towers and the 2nd mark for extra low body mounting on cars such as the Awesomatix A700 and A800. The wing has also has two trim lines; one is the 10mm USGT legal trim line and the second is a 20mm trim line similar to sedan wings for extra downforce. Details such as the extra rear spoiler elements increases rear downforce to compensate for the small 10mm USGT wing regulation. Designed with ample tyre clearance in the wheel wells to mount the body low without rubbing the tyres and a specially shaped splitter provides steering while being durable thanks to the modified angles. The body set includes the 0.5mm clear unpainted polycarbonate body and wing, steel wing hardware, window masks, logo stickers and an instruction sheet.
