Two new items from Exotek for the Drag Slash and Slash Street Eliminator, the first being this heavy duty 4mm thick carbon fibre front shock tower. Much stiffer for more stable high speed handling, it uses the stock shocks and body mounts. It has optional shock mounting holes for more tuning options but requires removal of the stock body mount. Next up is their heavy duty hardened steel complete CVD axle sets and diff cups. Reduced parts count and all steel construction insures reliable racing without fear of deforming or popping out the stock plastic axle sets. The new diff cups uses 2 set screws instead of the straight pin to remove all of the slop and reduces vibrations.
