Exotek 22 2.0 & SC6 carbon front shock towers

Exotek 22 2.0 & SC6 carbon front shock towers

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.

Exotek have new option parts for the Tamiya TRF201 and the Xray XB4 available. Starting with the Tamiya-related part, Exotek’s direct spur mount is now also available for TRF201 series buggies. The slipper eliminator hub is ideal for stock and oval racing as it weighs in at only 3.8g, making for improved acceleration and cooler running motors. The part also increases gear ratio options and it is simply swapped for the original slipper clutch when conditions call for it. Also new and made for the Xray XB4 is a 4-piece set of shock bottom caps. The parts add some visual impact thanks to their orange anodising.
