Exotek has had enough and they aren’t going to take it any more. Enough inconsistent chassis flex that is. So they developed this new carbon fiber chassis for the Tamiya TA-05 V2. It’s purpose built for lipo batteries, so one of the major reasons for inconsistent flex, the battery slots that are usually cut into one side of the chassis, has been completely removed from the equation.
Other features of the EX05 chassis include a narrower width, a carbon fiber battery strap with alloy posts, multiple battery mounting positions, and a bunch of anodized hardware for steering, the motor mount, and more. It is not compatible with any other version of the TA-05 chassis, only the V2.
This EX05 chassis kit is available now directly from Exotek for $114.95. Check out the Exotek web site for more info.
