Tekno RC V4 Brushless Kit (Losi 8T 2.0/42mm Motors)
Tekno RC V4 Brushless Kit (Losi 8T 2.0/42mm Motors)
michael fosdick - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Sunday, December 23, 2012
A few probs with assembly. The BIG prob. No droop screws were provided with my kit. The chassis is tapped where I assume they should go. The holes that are tapped at the droop screw location are unusually small. If you run your stock droop screws the FRONT ones get caught in the chassis droop screw holes. I just wanted to get the damn thing built so I ended up filling the holes with screws and grinding them 2mm above the chassis so I could run the front droop setup as stock. I run the rears the same way but did not need to fill the chassis droop screw holes as the droop screws did not hang up in the rear. I read the instructions which stated "Don't forget to remove the droop pad screws from your old 8B chassis and make sure to install them now on the new V4 chassis. For the 8T, we have included the droop scews in the kit. Be sure to install them before moving on to step 2." My kit did not come with droop scews. Im not sure what system was even intended. I also surfed the net for 15 minutes and didnt find any solutions either. I guess Ill hope the droop wear on my chassis isnt accelerated or that it doesnt drastically change my droop. The underside of the battery tray gets thick with the horizontal/vertical velcro straps so it seems like its uneven but once you tighten all of the screws it seems better, but be careful here not to overtighten when leveling the tray. The motor mount had to have the small countersunk motor face holes enlarged to screw to the face of my tekin motor with the screws I used. I could not get the RX box to mount at the mech brake servo location because it hit the mudguard so I mounted it like the pic. I had one screw strip in the plastic while mounting the RX box to the chassis without being overtightened. The chassis is a very hard well machined lightweight metal. The layout is pretty good. The parts are well tooled. It seems well thought out. The problems I had slowed assembly a bit, the droop screws issue mad me mad because I had higher expectations for this kit as I have had Tekno stuff before with no issues. Im glad I bought this because I have not had one single strippes spur or pinion after switching from the Losi 8t 2.0 brushless conversion kit. For that reason alone I would buy again! I can drive my Tekin 8T 2.0 again, no breakage after 10 packs through it! I have also discovered the radio box is very small.
