Default New Hot Bodies Products from Tekno RC

***Tekno RC D8//D8T/Ve8/Vorza Hot New Releases***

New Stub Axles and Diff Couplers for the popular D8 series of vehicles. Hardened steel, precision tolerances & snap rings ensure worry free usage. Center shaft couplers and stub axles also come with 3 sets of drive pin holes to extend the life of each part. These are the latest must have performance parts from Tekno RC.

TKR20036 - Tekno RC Stub Axles (Hot Bodies D8/D8T/Ve8/Vorza, w/pin retainers)
MSRP - $24.99

TKR20037 - Tekno RC Center Shaft Coupler (Hot Bodies D8/Ve8/Vorza, w/pin retainers)
MSRP – $24.99

TKR20038 - Tekno RC Center Shaft Coupler (Hot Bodies D8T, w/pin retainers)
MSRP - $27.99

TKR20029 - Tekno RC Pin Retainers (Hot Bodies D8/D8T/Ve8/Vorza, 2pcs)
MSRP -$4.99

TKRH67819 - Tekno RC Lightened LCG Chassis for Hot Bodies D8T Truggy (nitro)
MSRP - $139.99 (available for ~$100)

Simply put, the Tekno RC Lightened LCG Chassis is the ultimate chassis upgrade for your Hot Bodies D8T Nitro Truggy. Here's why:

• 37g/1.4oz lighter than stock, stock chassis is 365g, Tekno chassis is 328g
• Low CG cutout design lowers engine and radio tray by 1mm, fuel tank lowered by 2mm
• Integrated droop screws for more precise droop adjustment and better wear (includes screws too)
• CNC machined (not stamped) from 4mm aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum
• Hard anodized for increased wear resistance
• Beveled (chamfered) underside edge to help cruise over rough terrain
• Alternate rear chassis brace holes for use with shorter Losi 8 rear chassis brace for increased flex tuning (brace included!!!)

Are these couplers lightened compared to the stock parts, or just made from a more durable product? I'm trying to understand why I should put all of these products on my D8T? Also, any factory guys have any comments having tested this stuff? Thanks much!!

I can't comment on these specific items. But the guys @ Tekno rock!. I've had very good service from them and excellent quality products. Would love to try these on my D8/T vehicles...but right now tires and fuel is more important :P Lol.

Not sure on weight, but they are stronger and have the CVD pin retainer

Thanks for the comments. The parts are not any lighter, but as bboard and fallguy pointed out, they are stronger and will be less trouble compared to the stockers due to the pin retaining ring. Also since they have 3 sets of drive pin holes, you can move the pin 2 more times after the first holes show any wear. This essentially extends the life of the part a lot.

does the front one add weight you think? I mean it has a different design and it is 5mm so id think if it did it would be very small amount

Default D8T tekno kit?

Hi, since this thread is about new tekno parts I was wondering if anyone had information on whether a V3 brushless conversion kit for the D8T is anywhere near release? I'm gonna convert a D8T to brushless and want to see if Tekno is gonna come out with a kit.
Thanks.

There will be very limited qty of these released. Better to check and ask in THIS forum for our brushless kits. Or even give us a call during our business hours. Check Tekno RC for details.
