This is the Tekno RC ET48.3 1/8 Scale Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit. The original ET48 was a huge improvement on what an electric truggy platform could be and was an incredible success around the world. Now its time to introduce the future of the ET48 platform with V3, the new standard in the 1/8 Electric Truggy class.

Updated rear hubs (TKR5199) allow the option of using the stock CV axles or upcoming universal driveshafts. Also offered are the rear hubs in aluminum as an option part (TKR5199A). At the front of the vehicle are updated trailing steering spindles (TKR5193) and spindle carriers (TKR5194). The trailing components vastly improve high speed bump handling in addition to smoothing out the steering response. The vehicle initiates turns more predictably and finishes corners better than ever before. Larger bearings are now fitted to the front spindles for improved durability. The spindles will also accommodate the upcoming universal driveshafts.

The V2 hinge pin braces (TKR5161, TKR5162, TKR5163, TKR5164, TKR5165) have found their way into this kit. They provide more adjustability than ever before; changing the roll centers at the hinge pin is now an easy task and allows you to set up the vehicle for any conditions. Front arm sweep, kick-up, rear anti-squat, and rear toe are all adjustable.

The Tekno low profile wing mount (TKR5181) is included to lower the CG of the whole vehicle while a revised front bumper (TKR5166) increases front ground clearance. Straight camber link rod ends (TKR5187) were produced to improve consistency in corners. Maintenance is easier with the addition of the split center differential mount (TKR5260, TKR5263). Clamping spring perches (TKR6140) and updated shock boots (TKR6144, TKR6145) are also included to keep the shocks clean, smooth, and trouble free.

Finally, the box setup has been tuned by some of the best drivers in the world to give customers a vehicle that they can confidently drive in most conditions. With the extensive list of adjustments and improvements, it is easier than ever to tune the vehicle to your driving style and track conditions.

Tekno RC ET48.3 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
I can not describe how tight everything fits. There is no slop. I've I have a revo 3.3 and a mrevo and this is in another league. I'm running a tp 4070 1440 kv motor, hobbywing esc, trunigy aspec 6s 5000mah battery with a savox servo along with a 23 tooth pinion. I don't race as there is no track within 300 miles of me. The handling is excellent. Very well thought out. I honestly think you would bent a hinge pin before you ever broke an a-arm. Make sure you bevel the diff housing where the diff shims go with a file. It makes installing the shims much easier. 5 stars all day.)
