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.

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.

New from Exotek comes a range of aluminium and carbon fibre option parts for the TLR 22-4 buggy. First up is the twist nut battery post set whose design uses alloy twist nuts instead of body clips for holding down the battery straps. The twist nuts have knurling for easy grip and include rubber inserts to keep twist nuts from rattling loose. The threaded alloy posts use steel lower screws for durability and have the upper post extension so that stock body clips can be used for the body. The set is available in glossy black or yellow and it is compatible with saddle or single shorty style packs.

Included with the rack come four ball bearings, two shims and hardware and the part allows to set the same bump steer and Ackermann settings as the stock rack.

Exotek has new option parts for the F1R2 IFS kit and Xray’s 1/10th servo saver available in the form of machined damper rods and a carbon servo saver plate. Starting with the machined damper rods for the F1R2 independent front suspension set, the highly precise parts are machined from black POM and they come with blue anodised alloy spring stands. The rods make for silky smooth damper action of the IFS assembly and they also include M5 shims to to raise the ride height further.

Made for HPI Racing’s Sprint 2 touring car chassis are new carbon fibre shock tower sets from Exotek. Coming as separate front and rear set including mounting hardware and orange anodised aluminium shock posts the parts made from 3mm carbon fibre are much stiffer and stronger than the standard towers for consistent damper action while retaining a light weight and offering improved looks.

New from Exotek come two aluminium option parts for the Team Durango DEX410 and DETC410 kits. First up is the Flite vented motor plate for Team Durango’s 2WD buggy. The 100 percent CNC-machined vented motor plate keeps the motor running cooler and longer for that extra edge. Aggressive cut-outs allow the heat that builds up inside the gear cover to vent out thus lowering overall motor temps greatly. The extra machining reduces the weight down to 16g, making the plate over 5g lighter than stock, but the critical motor mounting areas are still intact to maintain solid motor mounting and gear mesh. The plate is available in gold or black anodising and it easily mounts as MM3 or MM4 configuration with the Exotek logos laser etched on both sides of the plate.

New from Exotek come 7075 aluminium rear wheel axles that are usable on the Tamiya TRF419, 418, 417, TB04 and Evo6 as well as the Team Durango DETC410. The parts are designed for expert touring car drivers who seek for an extra advantage in spec class racing as the alloy axle scrubs weight on the expense of some durability. The parts weigh in at only 1.55g per piece and they greatly reduce rotating mass and unsprung weight but due to their aluminium construction they are not recommended for modified racing or tracks with hard track barriers. They are compatible with new G clip or older screw type TRF CVD axles and come polished and hard anodised.
