Exotek DEX210 RM HRC bulkhead conversion

Exotek DEX210 RM HRC bulkhead conversion

New from Exotek comes the rear motor 7075 aluminium bulkhead conversion for rear motored DEX210 series cars including the v1, v2 and ST. Co-designed with the Team Durango race factory and produced by Exotek the new concept rear motor bulkhead was used by Jörn Neumann to win the 2014 Euro Championships. Made of high-strength 7075 alloy and machined down to reduce overall weight, the new RM bulkhead provides lower inner camber link mounting points for improved high roll centre options as well as chassis mounted alloy inner ball stud mounting. The construction also re-locates the shock tower to be in front of the rear shocks and it changes the flex characteristics of the chassis and gearbox. On top of that the design makes for easier gear box access and removal and the wing can be mounted more forward or in the rear stock gearbox location. The set is available in factory gold or black anodising and it is recommended for experienced modellers as it requires hand cutting of the stock plastic gearbox.

Exotek DEX210v2 carbon rear shock tower

New from Exotek and made for the Team Durango DEX210v2 is a rear carbon fibre shock tower. Offering a heavy duty design and a stealthy matte finish the tower, made from 5mm thick material, is much stiffer and stronger that the stock part for consistent damper action while being still light of weight due to its extra machining. Also the wide open shape allows air to pass through for better wing aero. The shock tower weighs in at 12.5g and fits the original DEX210 as well.
