Exotek Exo-Six alloy gearbox & CF shock towers

Exotek have introduced new option part for the Exo-Six conversion kit in the form of an aluminium gearbox set, carbon fibre shock towers and a 48 pitch main gear. Starting with the gearbox, the bulkhead is machined from 7075 alloy and provides a solid tweak-free design that is about 8g lighter than each of the stock plastic gear boxes for a substantially lower centre of gravity and thus improved chassis roll. New camber mounting points are more inboard for smoother handling when running longer camber link lengths and more robust to resist breakages as in the stock plastic mounts. Additional features include new centre hold sway bar guide for less weight and easier alignment and raised 2mm top plate mounts allow for easier access to the motor screws and battery plugs. Last but not least do precise bearing guides make for a much more free drive train versus stock.

Made for the use exclusively with the alloy gearbox are USA-made 3mm carbon fibre front and rear towers. Two mounting positions allow the use of standard TRF short or option super short dampers. Also new for the Exo-Six, Tamiya Evo7 and similar cars is a 48 pitch 58T heavy duty spur gear. Th machined, lightened delrin gear offers the perfect site for 21.5T and 17.5T spec gearing ratios.
