Dakotah Phend teams up with Picco?

Source: Dakotah Phend (Facebook)

The 2018 Dirt Nitro Challenge just started with some surprises in store. The first is to the credit of TLR’s Dakotah Phend. Dakotah unveiled two photos of his 8ight 4.0 with a Picco engine instead of a Reds engine. The change is quite unexpected, Dakotah still using a Reds engine at the “One Race One Man” in early January in Padova, Italy. Another interesting point is that Dakotah seems to use (or at least for his photos) an 8ight 4.0 stock. In recent times it was impossible to photograph his buggy because of prototype parts being tested to determine a final configuration for the next TLR 1/8 buggy that will be released this year.

Exotek 22-4 “Spec” center spool set

See: Exotek Racing

Exotek Racing have introduced the new “Spec” center spool set for the TLR 22-4. The super light slipper greatly reduces the rotating mass for improved acceleration and lower motor temps which are needed in the very competitive 13.5 and 17.5 Spec classes. The complete stock slipper assembly is 32gr and the complete Exotek spool is 19.75gr. The axle is made of titanium to reduce weight but maintain durability and the locking plates are lightened polished aluminum. These eliminates the heavy steel shaft, slipper pads, springs and plates all while using the TLR spur gears and pulleys for easy replacement when needed (works with the TLR alloy small pulley as well).
