Exotek EFX2 HD front bulkhead

Coming from Exotek is a 1-piece heavy duty aluminium front bulkhead for the Exotek EFX2 chassis conversion kit. The new design greatly increases the durability of the front of the car by removing the brittle plastic arm mounts and at 12g actually weighs less than the stock components. A simplified single-piece bulkhead design makes for tweak free geometry after race contact and with easier maintenance and assembly when in the pits. The all 7075 aluminium construction comes with a black polished finish and silver chamfered edges for a clean factory racing look.

Exotek FGX Evo EFX2 carbon chassis conversion

Exotek have announced the release of their new and improved 2nd generation performance pro chassis conversion for the 3Racing FGX Evo. The set completely updates the FGX Evo into a track worthy competitor by changing out the electronics layout for optimal weight bias and more importantly drops significant weight from the base car. It gives owners that competitive edge by combining the independent suspension of the FGX with an extra lightweight yet more durable chassis package. Key features include a nearly 100g weight cut versus the stock components, a 10mm shortened wheelbase for increased corner speeds and more on power grip as well as an adjustable forward or back LiPi cradle system with lateral battery mounting accepts standard shorty batteries. It allows adjusting weight bias on the fly as track conditions require. Also included are a heavy duty top plate system that provides better durability and lower centre of gravity over the stock plate. A new F104 style chassis mounted wing allows mounting of more durable and lighter F104/Xray wings. The alloy front IFS mounting plate ensures secure IFS suspension operation and a machined front damper set with a “soft” spring set has much softer yet plush damping compared to the stock units. This greatly improves steering response and the ability to soak up bumps.
