Exotek F1Ultra Carpet Works chassis set

Exotek’s new Carpet Works chassis set for F1Ultra is designed for maximum performance on carpet tracks. The weight forward design enhances corner speeds by moving the servo forward and running the battery inline for more front tire bite. The modular chassis design allows you to position the battery for optimal weight placement depending on your tracks traction because not all tracks are the same. The stiff 1-piece carbon chassis is also lighter for more responsiveness while keeping the front section as carbon fibre that is proven to resist tweak and bending that alloy F1 chassis can experience on small indoor tracks. Exotek also now offer the F1Ultra race kit combined with the Carpet Works chassis set.

ARC R8.3 & R8.3E adjustable front & rear shock base

From ARC, the adjustable front and rear shock base are the latest option parts designed for the R8.3 and R8.3E. This allows the shock angle to be adjusted by adding or removing shims. Compared to traditional shock towers, racers can adjust the shock angle in much finer increments to better fine tune the handling of their car, the more shims below the shock absorber the harder the suspension. Both shock bases also feature a 3mm carbon brace that bridges the left and right sides of the shock base. This brace can be added or removed to adjust the flex of the front bulkhead. With the plate installed in the front there is an increase in initial corner speed, while when the rear version is installed there is an increase in rear end stability.
