When the TLR 22 was originally released, it revolutionized the buggy class with never before seen innovations that brought the buggy class back to new heights with many iconic features that the rest of the industry soon incorporated. Now, with almost 2 years of testing and development, Exotek introduces this new chassis upgrade that brings the 22 buggy to the forefront of mid motor clay track performance. With it’s simple and efficient layout, the EXO22 conversion offers improved weight positioning of the battery and electronics to better suit a variety of track conditions.

M2C machines new JQRacing White Edition alu chassis

M2C Chassis
See: M2C
M2C Racing has released their new aluminum chassis for the JQRacing THECar White Edition nitro buggy. The chassis includes skid plates as well as “A” and “D” suspension blocks, for use only with the M2C chassis. These updated blocks are necessary to adapt to the skid plate design. These blocks use the stock JQ inserts.
This chassis is made using 4mm thick 7075 aircraft grade aluminum materials and clear anodized. Use of this material greatly increases the overall life of the chassis.

The new chassis features unique skid plates that mount flush on the underside of the chassis. As normal wear happens, the replaceable skid plates will wear and can be replaced as needed, leaving the chassis fresher longer, making this chassis suitable for tracks with high wear characteristics. Additionally, since the skid plates mount flush with the underside of the chassis, they will not effect droop settings or scrub speed on landings.

Features:

  • Made from 7075 Aluminum
  • 4mm thick
  • Includes front and rear skid plates
  • Hardened steel droop screw stops
