Coming from Exotek and made for the Tekno RC EB410 buggy are a couple of new optional parts. First up is a machined heavy duty 81T spur gear and mounting plate set for the stock centre gear diff. The much stronger machined delrin spur gear reduces the chances of stripped gears and includes the machined 7075 mounting plate with hardware. The 2-piece design also makes for quick and easy spur gear changes as owners do not have to open the gear diff and remove the outdrive, or refill the oils. In addition the alloy mounting plate provides cooling of the diff fluid for more consistent diff action. A 81t spur gear is included and the alloy mount also works with Exotek’s optional 72T spur.
Coming from Exotek and made for the HB Racing D216 2WD buggy is a machined 7075 aluminium main chassis plate. It is designed to provide a more consistent handling and lowered CG for today’s highly groomed indoor tracks. The plate is machined with a chamfered edge on the bottom to improve ground clearance and the top is machined to a have 2.5mm thick main section to reduce weight and 4mm thick side rails area to maintain stiffness. Also machined pockets are added throughout to reduce weight, bringing it to 145g. The chassis works with the stock side rails or the Exotek D216 carbon side rails.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Tekno RC EB410 1/10th 4WD buggy are new aluminium and carbon fibre option parts. First up is a set of rear hubs machined from 7075 aluminium and matching the stock geometry. The hubs are of a heavy duty design for high-powered applications, they come in Tekno team colours and are machined a second time to ensure precise bearing fit.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Axial Yeti 1/10th scale rock racer is the new HDX aluminium chassis set. The heavy duty 7075 alloy chassis will transform any project truck into a true trail dominator. The hard-anodised billet 7075 machined chassis adds about 55 grams of weight to the lowest part of the truck which dramatically lowers the centre of gravity which means less roll overs and increased traction over all terrains. Key design features include a 12mm narrower chassis width and smoothed bottom surface for reduced chassis snagging of terrain. The smooth inner chassis and open rear chassis design makes for less debris collecting and easier clean up after hitting the trail and a separate nose plate makes for easier maintenance. Carbon fibre upper plates add that factory racing look while lightweight, super adjustable and also more secure hook and loop battery straps hold the battery tight. Integrated, machined rear suspension link mounting directly to the chassis helps with precision and durability and a lowered ESC position and alloy servo mounts increase the truck’s performance. Not included in the conversion is the needed Axial 1/10th scale Yeti donor truck.
Exotek have released a limited edition run of their popular GT-Z Mini Apex Touring body shell as well as a drag link set for the Team Associated RC18, Apex and Rival kits. Starting with the limited re-release of the GT-Z body for the classic Team Associated 18R and 1:18 Apex. The lid is all about performance with its high down force wing, sculpted fenders, sleek hood line and super low profile roof line. The GT-Z is designed with extra room in the wheel wells to eliminate wheel rub. The body comes clear and it fits 155mm to 165mm wheelbase cars.
Coming from Exotek are new optional parts for the TLR 22 4.0 and Yokomo YZ-2 2WD buggies. Starting with the TLR-related parts, first up is the Flite motor plate with spur gear guard for all laydown converted 4.0 kits. The vented 7075 aluminium motor plate is of a lightweight design for a lower centre of gravity while vent openings ensure improved airflow and thus motor cooling. The integrated spur shield keeps the body from rubbing the spur gear which could destroy the spur gear and body paint.
Coming from Exotek is the XT6 1/10th 2WD stadium truck conversion kit for the Team Associated T5M and B6 kits. The kit is an essential laydown type chassis conversion and it features a specially designed 7075 alloy +6mm chassis that will help update the ageing T5M to the laydown type platform that is needed for today’s high grip tracks. The design allows the use of the newest B6 components such as the gearbox, battery layout, rear bulkheads, front bulkheads and steering, which then uses the T5M suspension components and body. The conversion includes heavy duty USA made 5mm carbon fibre front and rear shock towers that matches the stock T5M geometry and also included are front and rear T5M body mount adapters along with a detailed instruction sheet. Required for the conversion are a donor T5M and B6 kit or new parts including bulkheads, steering, gearbox and suspension.
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.
