Again it is 7075 grade for a stiffer chassis. We are taking pre orders as there is a limited supply. Available end of this month. (Jan 2013) Any questions feel free to post or PM.
Now were talking. I am very interested but would like to see some pictures, video, or some feedback from someone who has tried it. $120 is a big investment.

While your at it, how about a DEST210 version? That would be about 20mm longer than a stock DEX210 chassis.

+ one for the DESC210 would be cool.

Snapped a rear CVD axle outside of the hub just behind the rear pin. Tresrey hub and part of the axle stayed on the wheel. First time that has happened.

I was running one of the shims that came with the Tresrey hub upgrade between the hub and the outside bearing, but have noticed stock does not use a shim, and the Exotek does not appear to use a shim. Any thoughts from the gallery?

i've done that too. posted about it a couple months ago. same setup with tresrey hub. and i also have proline aluminum 12mm hex. snapped behind pin, and midway thru the outside bearing. needless to say, my hex and remainder of axle was still mounted on the wheel. came power sliding off the straight and smacked the side of tire into concrete barrier.

Can you run the Rcshox, or Tresrey camberlink mounts in Mid motor or just rear motor?

They need to be raised a little with spacers when running MM, to get the stock location. The tresrey ones come with instructions on how much you need to raise it.

From several people. I guess the metal is a little soft.
