Exotek F1ULTRA R5 Formula 1 Chassis | CompetitionX

Exotek Racing has announced the F1ULTRA R5, an updated version of their stellar F1ULTRA Formula 1 car.

This car isn’t necessarily an all new design but instead a culmination of quality-of-life updates from the original car. New features include 1-piece heavy duty side links, new motor mount with pinned carbon parts for reduced flex, 1-piece suspension hinge pins for less play, stand-up servo with new horn, high-tolerance front axles for less play and a double bolt front wing mount to reduce movement.

That’s just a tip of the iceberg! We’ve raced this car in the UF1 Series and finished 2nd behind the new car – it really is a stellar F1 ride!
