Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

Exotek have two new aluminium option parts for the Team Associated B5 and B5M buggy available in the form of the vented Flite motor plate and an aluminium rear ballstud mount for the B5M mid motor buggy. Starting with the motor plate, the CNC-machined part sports aggressive machining to make the part not only 6.5g lighter than the stock motor plate but to also improve motor and slipper heat dissipation. The critical motor mounting area was left out with machining to maintain a solid base for motor mounting and gear mesh adjusting. The part, that is available in blue and black colour, is designed for the use on indoor clay and carpet environments but a shaved bottom allows for debris discharge if needed.

Andrew Poole triples at East Coast Offroad Series

Andrew Poole triples at East Coast Offroad Series

The 2014 East Coast Offroad Series tools place over six races and travels the corners of North and South Carolina while offering nitro and electric classes in both 1/10th and 1/8th scales. Andrew Poole swept the 2WD Buggy, 2WD SC and 1/8th E-Buggy classes to take a triple in this year’s series. Teammate Brandon Melton was also able to attend select events and put his Team Associated car in the victory lane, but missing out on a few events dissolved any chances of an overall championship. Chris Pace was able to take the runner-up spot, despite a misfortune with a transponder not counting a few laps. Unfortunately for Pace, the series director chose to award him with a ninth place finish rather than third, taking away points that would have given him the overall championship.
