Coming from Exotek are titanium wing buttons for 1/8th and 1/10th scale vehicles. The 1/8th XL wing buttons offer the same design as their aluminium counterparts but they are made using the somewhat exotic titanium material. Measuring 22mm in diameter the XL buttons are ideal for 1/8th buggy and truggy wings and they offer a polished and laser-etched finish. Also new are the 16mm diameter Flite series titanium wing buttons for 1/10th scale vehicles. Made from high-quality titanium, coming polished and laser-etched, the buttons, that use 3mm countersunk screws, are ideal for off-road and on-road vehicles alike.
Coming from Exotek are the 1/8 XL aluminium wing buttons. The heavy-duty polished and anodised alloy wing buttons are of an extra large 22mm diameter and thicker than 1/10 buttons to securely hold any 1/8th scale wing while offering protection from crashes. They use a 3mm countersunk screw and are available in a range of colours including red, orange, blue, black and gun metal.
Coming from Exotek and made for the XB2 2WD off-road buggy are new rear/front brass and rear/rear aluminium suspension holders. Starting with the RF suspension mount, the part is machined from heavy brass material to add 18 gram of weight in front of the rear axle. Doing so will add traction and stability when track conditions call for it with the mount sporting a protective black coating while remaining the stock geometry. The RF mount is usable on both the Carpet and Dirt Edition kits.
Coming from Exotek and made for the Losi Mini 8ight Rally is a carbon fibre bottom chassis plate set as well as a carbon fibre top plate. Starting with the chassis set, the bottom plate is made from 2.0mm heavy-duty carbon fibre for durability and looks. It is much stiffer than the stock plastic chassis and it uses the Mini 8ight Truggy chassis side guards for a high-performance racer look. A machined motor area allows to use larger diameter motors and the chassis includes extra mounting holes for an optional gear cover and larger 1/10th low-profile steering servos. Also included comes a machined alloy nose plate and the chassis fits the Mini 8ight Rally and Desert Truck.
New from Exotek come two aluminium option parts for the Xray XB2 series of 2WD buggies. First up is the rear alloy camber mount for the Carpet Edition kit. The part is machined from 7075 aluminium and special countersunk mounting holes insure that the camber angle does not change in hard tumbles. It also helps keep camber plate alignment the same in case the plate is taken off for cleaning or maintenance purposes. A direct fit on the buggy the camber mount is available in orange or black colour. Also new and made for all XB2 series buggies are heavy duty 7075 aluminium rear hubs. Extra durable for high-power applications the parts are polished, anodised in orange or black and they are machined a second time to insure precise bearing fit. The hubs are rounded out by set screw holes for optional M3 grub screws.
Made for TLR’s 22 3.0 buggy is a range of new option parts from Exotek. First up is the vented Flite motor plate, specifically designed for indoor off-road racing. Excessive machining results in maximised motor cooling with the plate offering large cooling openings to reduce the motor and slipper clutch temperatures. Weighing in at 14 gram the plate also makes for a lower centre of gravity while still maintaining the critical motor mounting areas for solid motor mounting and gear mesh.
Following a first teaser image Exotek have now released full details on their all-new LCG gearbox set for the TLR 22 3.0 buggy. Centred around an aluminium gearbox with 3-gear setup the concersion let the three transmission gears operate in a straight line for an extra low centre of gravity and a smoother running idler gear. The diff case is machined from 7075 aluminium and the new motor plate is of a vented design to lower the motor temperatures. In addition to the lower centre of gravity the gearbox stiffens up the rear of the chassis as well as the shock tower for improved consistency on high-bite tracks. Using the gearbox requires to drill two extra holes into the chassis although the original gearbox can still be used, allowing for gearbox swaps if conditions call for it. Included in the set comes the black anodised and laser-etched gearbox, the alloy lightweight motor plate, a Delrin diff cover, carbon fibre battery strap with alloy hinge as well as alloy waterfall spacers, the chassis drill template, hardware and full instructions.
New from Exotek and made for the HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 club level racer are front and rear carbon fibre shock towers. Available separately the parts are cut from 3mm high-quality carbon material, they match the stock suspension geometry and improve suspension efficiency due to being much stiffer than the standard towers. Included with the shock towers, that use the stock hardware and shock ball ends, come M3 locknuts for the shock balls.
