See: XRAY

The PDX Open originated to settle the local debate on whether mod cars were in fact faster over a five minute run than their 17.5 counterparts. The small track has seen comparable lap times between the mod and stock classes and many argued the more manageable power of the 17.5 and 13.5 classes provided an advantage. After 2 rounds of qualifying, XRAY’s Travis Harker was able to put in clean runs in both classes to start on the pole position in both Mains. In the 2WD Open, T.Harker was able to get off to a clean start and he took the lead in both Mains to secure the victory with a comfortable margin.

Exotek TLR 22 5.0 aluminium adjustable rear hub set

See: Exotek Racing

Exotek Racing have introduced the new aluminium adjustable rear hub set for the TLR 22 5.0. CNC Machined from high-quality aluminium, the rear hubs come polished black and sport a silver chamfer finish and only weigh 2gr more than the hubs them replace. Tested with team driver feedback, this is a key tuning aid for matching the adjustable differential height (keeps the axle and bones level as you raise or lower the diff height inserts) and makes it easier to lower your ride height for high grip conditions. Designed to be use with 67mm bones, the default setting matches the 22 5.0 stock geometry while the full wheelbase adjustments similar to the stock hubs. Exotek Racing have deleted the 2 rearmost ball stud holes that are rarely used. The adjustable rear hubs come with precision machined Delrin hub height inserts that allow to set the hinge pin at stock level (+0) or raise the hub in 1mm increments (+1, +2, +3). Please note that the hubs also matches the same geometry as the B6.1 except the TLR ball stud height is 2mm taller.
