Exotek Mini 8ight-T carbon & aluminium option parts

Exotek introduce new carbon fibre and aluminium option parts for Losi’s Mini 8ight-T off-road truck. First up is the carbon bottom plate set that includes a 2.25mm thick main chassis plate and a heavy duty machined alloy nose plate. The main chassis offers a sleek factory carbon look and a lighter weight while the machined motor area allows the use of some larger diameter motors. In combination with Exotek’s 8ight-T servo mounts a larger 1/10th low-profile servo can be used for extra steering performance while the new optional shorty battery blocks help to fit 2S LiPo shorty battery packs. Included with the set comes mounting hardware and a decal sheet and the set can be used with the stock top plate or Exotek’s optional top deck.

Exotek TLR 22 alloy motor plate & front camber block

Exotek TLR 22 alloy motor plate & front camber block

Exotek have two new aluminium option parts available for TLR’s 22 line of vehicles. First up is the Flite motor plate, a fully CNC-machined part that is of a vented design to keep the motor running cooler and longer for that extra edge. Aggressive cut outs allows the heat that builds up inside the gear cover to vent out thus lowering overall motor temps greatly. The extra machining reduces the weight down to 14.5 grams, making it 6 grams lighter than stock, but the critical motor mounting areas are still intact to maintain solid motor mounting and gear mesh. The is intended for the use on indoor clay or carpet tracks, it comes laser etched, polished and anodised in gun metal or limited yellow colour.

Exotek F1R2 IFS independent front suspension set

Exotek F1R2 IFS independent front suspension set

Exotek introduce the F1R2 IFS independent front suspension set that is designed to overcome the very limited suspension travel of standard can car type front suspension. The sweet spot is only about 2mm of travel which means abrupt and non linear car handling. With an IFS suspension the car handling becomes much more linear with real body roll characteristics which means you can drive harder into a corner while maintaining stability and confident road holding performance which translates to improved overall race time results and consistency. The 48 parts set contains all needed parts to convert the front suspension of cars with F104-type front suspension with parameter like droop, ride height, damper angle, spring rate, roll centre, camber and caster all being available from stock or using optional parts. Included are also two pairs of springs; black medium hardness for Ride tyres or low-grip conditions and silver firm springs for Shimizu or TCS tyres and high-grip tracks. The design fits onto the standard F104 bolt pattern but Tamiya type chassis are too narrow for the droop stop screws and the F104 servo mounting will not work. Exotek will work on developing the IFS set next to be able to work with standard Tamiya type chassis.

Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

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.
