Exotek DEX210v2 carbon fibre main chassis

Exotek DEX210v2 carbon fibre main chassis

Exotek Racing introduce a carbon fibre main chassis plate for the Team Durango DEX210v2 2WD buggy. Made from 2.5mm USA-made material the chassis scrubs 35g of weight, it is of a heavy duty design and usable with both mid and rear motor converted vehicles. The lighter weight makes for a more nimble response and with slightly more flex than the alloy chassis it also increases overall grip, making it ideal for spec class racing. Included is also a 7075 alloy nose plate for longer wear and extra strength at the chassis bend while machined pockets at the rear of the chassis allows the use of LRC option suspension hangers.
