Default Tekno Race Trailer

I was at a big race in Ohio and saw this cool trailer in the parking lot. Had to take a pic. Then one day on my way to work I saw the same trailer in my neighbors drive. I could not believe that I live right around the corner from this guy and we don't know each other. Anyone know who this guy is? PM me if anyone knows. Thanks

Talk me into building this kit. Found one left at the LHS, picked it up with a Hobbywing 4700kv motor and Xerun ESC combo, 1256TG Savox servo, and haven't opened the packaging yet except to read the manual.

I just can't pull the trigger to start the build.

I really like buggies more than SCTs and am considering putting it all up in the FS section. That said, I've only had RTR trucks, but feel this was impulse.

Are you guys loving yours?

If you are a racer??? Build it and you'll have the best and complete 4x4 shortcourse to date ! And NO i do not work for or sponsored by Tekno...the matter of fact i was a Losi guy !!
This was my first build as well and it took me a day and a half ....taking my time. It was easy, very straight forward and fit very well.
Go ahead.....do it !!

I've built a B5M without trouble.
Not much of a racer yet. Been practicing when I can. I really value buggies for their size and agility. Thanks for the info. More to think about.

The Hot Bodies one fits perfectly. It's the proper length, and the linkage sits perfectly horizontal below the horn without rubbing anything:

You are probably hitting the mud guard mounted to the front of the rear arm with the ribs on the inside of the rim. Dremel the mud guard until it easily clears. You don't want that thing grabbing the rim when it flexes.

i initially intended on using it as a basher so they're 17mm DE trinidads with badlands tires (which is why i said it was an old pic). since then i've left the 17mm conversion on the truck and use panther slicks and dirt webs mounted on 17mm hex trinidads. m2c makes 17mm conversion kits for stock axles (v1 and .3) or the superlight axles and drilled out revo hexes work well (this is what i currently use)

It handled exactly how I expected it to from box, and was very predictable. Accept for a couple bonehead moves by the driver, it was a great day of racing. The rest of the truck is box stock, even ride height.

Thanks to fastpete, for the truck, and the PT racing oils, and tekno springs so I could play around a little bit. I finally had people looking my way, as I won both heats I was in, and held 2nd place for 90% of the main, but fell back to 4th place due to a boneheaded off track excursion...

For those assembling their trucks, i would start with 350cst in the rear, it'll get you close.
I've resisted changing the rear end. It has been planted. This weekend, I got a couple of those donkey kicks. Appears to happen when nailing the throttle while on the jump. I might try the pinks. On ver1, the greens made my rear end too loose - track was loose too tho.

I love the truck tho. It handles. Gotta quite oversteering and remember to brake early and drive thru turn off straight. For me, it had been just as tough as ver1. I've had some bad wrecks...no breaks yet. Thinking I need to go down to 2 cars, but I can't give up this truck. Too fun running it.

This is by far the best kit to work on and race so far. I've only raced two weekends but for a returning newbie this kit races well, survives really hard hits like a tank, and is a breeze to work on.

Get one and don't look back.

I've only been able to run my truck once about 3 weeks ago. It ran pretty well and I don't think I had the best tires available to make it totally planted. However, even given that, I felt my rear was too loose. (I don't think the tires were that far off from optimal)

Has anyone messed with the rear anti-squat? My rear toe is already at -4 deg so my next step would be to try to decrease the anti squat. thoughts?

Just curious as to when the rear end gets loose. Is it when trying to make a turn after a high speed section or all the time? Mine is pretty planted. I did drop my brake strength and decreased my rear droop because my nose was drooping too when I hit the brakes at the end of the straight. However, I felt that was on me. I need to brake earlier and no so hard. I was also oversteering trying to get into the turn. I did some 360s last week at the end of the straight, but, after making the adjustments, I was good.
