Exotek have introduced the Exo22SCT aluminium and carbon fibre conversion kit for the TLR22SCT and SCT 2.0. With its simple and efficient layout, the chassis design offers improved rearward weight positioning of the battery and electronics to better suit a variety of track conditions while also allowing for the faster and easier to drive side ways mounted shorty battery positioning. The chassis set includes the machined and black anodised 2.5mm 7075 aluminium main chassis, 5mm carbon side rails and a redesigned battery mount that also acts as the top deck. The increased chassis footprint allows for more electronic layout options and proper weight balancing while maintaining a low centre of gravity. The conversion kit is available soon and it requires a TLR22SCT or SCT 2.0 truck in mid motor configuration.

Exotek have introduced a battery post and twist nut set for the TLR22 3.0 buggy. The lightweight and secure design does away with the stock body clip system with the set including two machined aluminium posts, two knurled twist nuts as well as mini rubber O-rings that stop the twist nuts when tightened them down, to prevent the nuts from accidentally loosening.

Exotek have introduced an aluminium main chassis plate for the Exotek Exo-Five conversion kit. The chassis is machined from 7075 aluminium, polished, black anodised and laser-etched for the full factory treatment. The chassis is intricately machined to reduce overall weight but retains stiffer flex traits than the carbon fibre chassis and is 23 grams heavier to insure the lowest possible centre of gravity for carpet racing. The chassis is meant to perform well on both carpet and asphalt tracks.

Exotek have new aluminium option parts for the TLR22 3.0 buggy available in the form of a steering set as well as servo mounts. Starting with the steering set, it contains fully machined 7075 alloy parts such as the steering rack and bellcranks. The new design adds four 3x6mm ball bearings and two crush sleeves for the longest wearing, smoothest and most precise operation. The parts are of an extra heavy duty design, the assembly matches the stock geometry and it includes four ball bearings, two crush sleeves, two alloy cranks and an alloy steering rack. It uses the stock TLR posts, hardware and post bearings and it fits all TLR vehicles with TLR 2.0 nylon steering sets, such as the 22 3.0, 22SCT 2.0, and 22T 2.0. The second new part is the alloy servo mount set for the TLR22 3.0. The precision machined heavy duty alloy servo mounts are of a solid design that installs easily into the buggy while weighing only 6.7g total for both parts. The mounts come polished and anodised in factory black.

Exotek have new aluminium option parts for the RB6 2WD and ZX6 4WD buggies available. First up is a heavy duty steering rack for the RB6, SC6 and RT6. Machined from 7075 alloy and designed for the use with the included 3x6mm ball bearings and crush sleeves the brace makes for smooth and precise steering operation. Available in factory red or black anodising the rack matches the stock steering geometry. Also available is an aluminium wing mount set for the RB6 and ZX6 buggies. Lighweight yet extra durable the machined 7075 alloy parts use low profile M3 screws for wing mounting instead of the usual body clips, equalling more precision and durability. The mounts are available in black colour and weigh in at 10g in total.

They allow for easy camber and toe adjustments and included is also an assortment of suitable nylon ball cups. Also new is the alloy differential gear made from 7075 aluminium. The ultra lightweight machined alloy gear comes hard anodised for durability and it scrubs nearly 50 percent of weight compared to the stock steel diff gear with better machined tolerances for smoother bearing fit and gear mesh.

Exotek have new option parts for the F1R3 formula kit available in the form of an alloy main chassis plate, carbon fibre chassis stiffeners and new IFS soft spring sets. Starting with the chassis, the part is machined from 7075 alloy and made especially for the F1R3 conversion. The 2mm thick aluminium material makes for a stiffer chassis feel which helps to make the car easier to drive on carpet and less prone to traction rolls. This is further helped by the additional weight of 12 grams, making the chassis ideal for high-grip carpet and asphalt tracks.
