This is the Tekno RC EB48.2 4WD Competition 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit. The EB48.2 has raised the bar in the 1/8 e-Buggy class once again! The EB48.2 buggy is not only more competitive than the first gen EB48, it also represents the best value in its class. Tekno RC has included a variety of updated and option parts that improve the overall performance and durability, without increasing the price of the kit!

The list of improvements on the EB48.2 is extensive. Previously optional items like the XT suspension arms (TKR5030XT, TKR5036XT), +1.5 degree rear toe plate (TKR5013B), an added 0.5 degree offset insert to go along with the 1.0 and 0.0 offset inserts (TKR5021) have been combined with redesigned shock cartridges and shock bushings (TKR6008), overhauled differentials with redesigned cross-pins and internal gears (TKR5149, TKR5150) as well as redesigned straight cut, lightened CNC diff ring and pinion gears (TKR5151, TKR5152) that are quieter, smoother and more efficient. Lightened differential outdrives (TKR5112X, TKR5114X) are used throughout and the lightened aluminum center driveshaft (TKR5077) is now standard as well. The redesigned angled rear gearbox (TKR5016B) and larger bearings (TKRBB05134) are also included to help reduce wear and increase efficiency by minimizing the drive angles.

Up front the EB48.2 features an updated HD servo saver spring (TKR5101X), while lightened steering posts (TKR5102A) and lightened suspension sleeves (TKR5054A, TKR5055A) help reduce weight without sacrificing durability. Aluminum hard anodized pivot balls are used throughout (TKR5049A, TKR5052A, TKR5053A, TKR5058A, TKR5079A) to reduce weight, while a redesigned, more durable servo horn has also been included. Combine all of this with an improved out-of-the-box setup and you have a high performance, competition level platform that includes everything you need to win.

Updated EB48.2 Features:

  • Updated XT arms front and rear (TKR5030XT, TKR5036XT)
  • +1.5 degree rear outer toe plate for more adjustability (TKR5013B)

  • Hard anodized aluminum pivot balls throughout reduces weight (TKR5049A, TKR5052A, TKR5053A, TKR5058A, TKR5079A)
  • Hard anodized aluminum front spindle and suspension bushings reduces weight (TKR5054A, TKR5055A)
  • Aluminum steering posts reduces weight (TKR5102A)
  • Aluminum front center driveshaft reduces rotating mass (TKR5077)
