Exotek have introduced the version 2 heavy duty turnbuckle set for the HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 touring car. The V2 set includes special polished gun metal finish steel turnbuckles whose 4mm section allows for easy adjustment of the camber and front toe settings using an optional 4mm turnbuckle wrench. Also updated are the heavy duty v2 nylon ball cups for toughness and greater durability as well a perfect fit on the stock ball ends. The set includes a total of six links with the single servo link being not included.
Coming from Exotek and made for TLR’s 22 3.0 series vehicles are an aluminium steering set and a RF brass LCG hanger. Starting with the steering set, it is designed to replace the standard parts on the 3.0 buggy with a more sturdy and precise affair. The new design adds four 3x6mm ball bearings and two crush sleeves for longer wearing, smoother and more precise operation. Included are aluminium bellcranks, an alloy steering rack and miscellaneous small parts and the set is usable on the 22 3.0, 22SCT 3.0/2.0 and the 22T 3.0/2.0.
Exotek have introduced two new option parts for the TLR 22-4 2.0 4WD buggy in the form of a ball-raced aluminium steering link and a machined aluminium wing mount. Starting with the steering link, the part is machined from high-quality 7075 aluminium and it utilised four 6x3mm bearings to minimise slop and make for smooth movement and long-lasting wear. Included with the black anodised part are also two machined crush spacers for the bearings.
Exotek have introduced three new Flite-series topshafts the most popular 2WD buggies as well as a Flite ultra light direct spur mount. Starting with the topshafts, the parts have been drilled and the teeth narrowed for increased acceleration and a cooler running motor. Less than half the weight of the stock topshaft and slipper assembly and lighter still than Exotek’s standard spur mount set, when combined with the special light weight spur mount, the assembly weighs in at 9.5g complete with hardware and 72 spur. The topshaft is available for the Team Associated B6, Kyosho RB6.6 and the TLR 22 3.0.
Coming from Exotek is a new aluminium clamp-on fan mount for 1/10th buggies, trucks and touring cars. Machined from aluminium and available in anodised black, blue or orange colour, the included mounting bracket has multi-mount features that allows the fan to be angled or parallel with the motor can. The angled design allows easy mounting of fans in 2WD buggies and trucks with laydown style gearboxes while for sedans the secure bracket holds the fan at a distance from the armature to avoid the magnetic fields of the motor disrupting the fans motor. The mount can also hold the fan at the end bell in cramped 4WD buggies by using camber shims for spacing. The mount is designed for use with high power 30mm fans and it fits all standard 540-sized 35.8-36mm diameter brushless motors.
Exotek have introduced an aluminium rear bulkhead for laydown converted Kyosho RB6.6 buggies. A heavy duty 1-piece design and high-quality 7075 aluminium material mean improved durability and less chances to strip a ball stud mounting hole in hard crashes. The part matches the stock geometry and includes mounting points for the RB6.6 sway bars and at 10g the bulkhead is also about 1.5g lighter than the stock nylon part.
Coming from Exotek are the Exo-Six 2mm flex top plate and titanium rear axles for the Tamiya Evo6 and TRF419. Starting with the top plate, the part is made from 2mm carbon fibre and its design, with a full-length slot down the middle, offers more flex and traction for the Exo-Six conversion. The part is cut from US-made carbon fibre and it is available now.
Coming from Exotek and made for Kyosho’s Lazer ZX-6.6 4WD buggy is the heavy duty steering set. The fully 7075 alloy set included steering bellcranks, a steering rack and small parts and its design is based off of Exotek’s popular D413 steering. The improved construction removes all of the plastic parts and bushings and adds four ball bearings and two crush shims for long wearing, smooth and precise operation. The kit includes two steel TiNi-coated bearing screws, four ball bearings, two crush shims, two alloy cranks, an alloy steering rack and two alloy steering post spacers while making use of the stock ZX-6.6 posts and post bearings. The design matches the stock geometry and also allows mounting of the servo on either side of the chassis.
