Ive already sent him a couple chassis so that he could design me a lipo upper deck (the one ive just posted about) and hes told me that he thinks the s400 could really benefit form having more flex.

the design costs would be $300 which I cant cover by myself. - pm me if you are interested or email mike at [email protected]

Yep - thats a reality that everyone who has been driving this car has had to live with for two years now. Ive tried a 416 and a hot bodies and I can honsetly say that nothing so far is as stable as this car. - Worth it


You are right $300 is alot - thats why im hoping a group of us can go in on it.

Count me in on the chassis. I could definitely go for one of those. Just keep me in the loop and i will support it in any way possible.

Ok sweet right now its me you and I think Flywheel is in.

I think the way this would work is we would split up the design cost (which at the moment is $100 per person) and then we would buy however many chassis we want individually. Hopefully we can get a few more in and get the design cost per person down even further.

Getting information re quantities for guys here in AUSTRALIA. If the demand is good then this might be a definite go ahead.

Awesome -

If you guys want the upper deck you can order it right now by emailing mike at exotek at the above email. Its already in production - i ordered 6 myself

For the lower deck we'll try to get a group together and get the money for the design to him. Im not sure how we would to that logistically but im sure we could find a way to account for payments. Mike told me that the turn around for design of the lower chassis would be 6 weeks so even after we pay it wouldnt be an immediate thing

Best regards

Im gonna take this idea from people who do race sign ins on tech threads and make a list that I will update continuously

This will be the list of people who are interested paying to have the S400 exotek chassis developed.

so far I have

1. wstuart
2. flywheel
3.venom54
4. rodb
5.lucapatrizio - ?????are you in? Im not %100 sure from your post?????
6.KweetNiet - pending finding out how much the actual top deck costs



I would like to get at least 10 guys then it would only be $30 a piece for the design fee.

Also just so everyone knows this is only a design fee - this payment would not technically buy you anything, - it would just cover the cost of design -the cost for buying an actually chassis would be in addition to the design fee. I realize this may look super shady but I know mike and have raced with him since he started exotek. Im thinking once we get to 10 ill have mike post on here and then we can come up with a way to collect payment that everyone iwll be comfortable with - try to get the word out to other s400 drivers

The upper deck has already been designed. I paid the design fee out of my pocket for it ($75) so Exotek could start production.

To get design pics and to place orders for the top deck email exotek at the email I gave in the previous post. Like I said ive already ordered 6 for myself and was told ill get them in a couple weeks

The lower deck (chassis) has not yet been designed (i didnt have $300 to put up myself). If we can get enough guys and pay in Mike can start designing. It would then be at least 6 weeks before we get the chassis

Already placed order for top decks from Mike at EXOTEK. Looking forward to these when they arrive.

Have advertised on store website and have huge number of hits re the upper deck. I have included information for the chassis as information as well with good feedback.

Link below for interest.

S400 top deck.



Cheers
