Thumbs up EXOTEK R-TEK GT

I know the R-TEK GT has been out for a while, but I have to say I really like it. It's awesome to paint, handles well on the track for me, and is very durable. The bodies I've used previously have cracked and deformed from impact very easily compared to the R-TEK. I'll be using one again for sure after this one bites the dust eventually.-*---

Yes you need to use spacers .5 or 1.0, I'm running .5 in front and 1.0 in rear on my Xray T4'21 and solve the issue, I use these shims
worked perfect! Click here to see

Are these required for the 2018 T4?

I see a lot of guys running Bwoah, but I'm really tempted to try the new Ahura since it looks so nice. Any feedback on it yet?
My personal experience has been that the Seven20 does not provide as much steering as some of the other bodies out there. My personal favorites right now are the Bwoah and the Exotek Akura.

Exotek makes one called A type that is more like early 2000s NSX. Works well from what i've seen

Default Bittydesign Ahura

Has anyone tried the new Bittydesign Ahura body yet? It looks cool but looks to only be a neutral body. Opinions?

I have three waiting downstairs but itíll be mid-late summer before I get to painting them. Cool looking body. Very low roof line. Should be interesting.

Maybe, first put on the new set and see what happens, it may or may not rub against
the arms, if so then use the spacers, I needed .1 in the rear to clear and .5 in the front
to clear arms and the car handle very well.

I really like that RTek body. It looks more scale than some of the others. I painted up a Protoform Vittoria body for mine, and it looks a mile long and goofy.

Where does it rub on the arm? Think I would rather nick the arm a bit with a dremel rather than screwing with my track width. Depends on where it's hitting the arm I guess...

It rubs middle lower part, and yes you can dremel it, I did not want to mess with the integrity of the rim. Racers will figure out other solutions,
I was just sharing what I did and it worked perfect, to be total honest my car felt better with the wider wheel base.

Speaking of wheel base, how do the new rims sit on the car? Wondering if the offset is the same as the old rims. It would explain a lot if the offset was deeper.
