Tekno RC's presence in the 1/8th E-buggy class has been steadily growing since the release of the EB48 in August of 2012. Now we are introducing an updated EB48.2 buggy that is not only more competitive, but also represents the best value in the marketplace. Tekno RC has improved performance and durability without increasing the price of the kit.
The list of improvements on the EB48.2 starts with our XT suspension arms (TKR5030XT, TKR5036XT) as standard equipment which improves durability tremendously. We have included the +1.5 degree rear toe plate (TKR5013B) along with a new 0.5 degree offset insert to go along with the 1.0 and 0.0 offset inserts (TKR5021). New shock cartridges and shock bushings (TKR6008) improve handling consistency and reduce shaft deflection.
The differentials have been overhauled with new cross-pins and internal gears (TKR5149, TKR5150, as featured on the SCT410) as well as new straight cut CNC diff ring and pinion gears (TKR5151, TKR5152). The new gears are quieter, smoother and more efficient than previous gears and feature lightweight cutouts to reduce rotating mass. Lightened differential outdrives (TKR5112X, TKR5114X) are used throughout. The lightened aluminum center driveshaft (TKR5077) is now standard as well. A lighter drivetrain results in faster acceleration, higher top speed, and reduced wear. Our new angled rear gearbox (TKR5016B) and larger bearings (TKRBB05134) round out the driveline improvements. The new gearbox reduces wear and increases efficiency by minimizing the drive angles.
Up front the EB48.2 features a new HD servo saver spring (TKR5101X) which helps to keep you pointing in the right direction. Lightened steering posts (TKR5102A) as well as lightened suspension sleeves (TKR5054A, TKR5055A) help reduce weight without any sacrifice in durability. Aluminum hard anodized pivot balls are used throughout (TKR5049A, TKR5052A, TKR5053A, TKR5058A, TKR5079A) to reduce weight. A more durable servo horn has also been included.
Combine all of this with an improved out-of-the-box setup and you have the best 1/8th Electric Buggy on the market. The EB48.2 raises the bar once again!
