Did I just get lucky? I ordered my Neu at my LHS and had it in a week.

Yeah, Chris - you got lucky I would say. A lot depends on the motor ordered. I can get some motors in 3 days, while others take a month at times and slowly arrive. I typically have a running order.
I do think Neu is making efforts to step up production though. Small companies that get popular experience "growing pains" so some delays are inevitable.

Thanks for the kind words, Captain. Your custom Mugen project is getting close as well.

Hi Mike,

Good talking with you a few weeks back. Sorry I was rushed off the phone. The wife was in a pissy mood that day....LOL

My MBX5R brushless project should be done within a week or so. I can't wait!

Best regards,

This is the best news I have seen! It is great to see a major manufacture playing with the brushless 1/8th market.

Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

Jason you crack me up man . I think if you got a chance to run a lipo 1/8 scale vehicle with that nice brushless motor, you would love it.

So what is the cost breakdown it took you to do the conversion?

As far as I could tell the motor/batt/esc portion of the buggy & truggy worked well over a 2 day race 9/8-9/9. Congrats Tekin.

I raced against that Tekin 8T Truggy in that two day and all I can say is that it was a stunner. That thing could pull wheelies down the back straight! They didnt seem to have any electrical problems during the two day event and if it wasn't for a broken shock on the buggy and a tatered servo arm on the truggy I'll bet we would have seen at least one of these monsters on the podium.

Very cool stuff... I was very impressed.

Awesome news. Who do we send money to for pre-orders? Seriously. I want one NOW.

Now all we need is a class for these things. If there not going to allow Lipo's in racing then what's the use.

I've heard of people racing their electric 1/8th buggies in the nitro class, and they are just made to take a fake pit-stop to make it fair.

that's what we do at our local track in the summer, but in the winter we have a full heat and this winter we will probable have at least 2 heats of E 1/8.

I raced against that Tekin 8ight buggy and it was very fast and they didnt have any problems during the two day event, just some bad luck kept them off the podium. Great Job on the new stuff TEKIN.

Mate, looks awesome. I'd love to see video too. Does it rip like a nitro?
