Plastic spur? Please, at the least make an aftermarket metal gear available. Yeah, I'm probably in the minority I know. But I will buy if you make it

Default RCX unvelining

This machine looks legit

It will be my next 1/8 e-buggy.

Tekno says they have been testing, so I trust them when they say it has stood up to the abuse. Everything looks great. I will say the turnbuckles looked a little thin for 1/8 scale, but time will tell.

Stuff I really like:
  • Smart chassis and geometry design
  • Straight center drive shaft
  • looks easy to work on with low screw count
  • integrated mudgaurds with electronics mounting
  • all components centered with super narrow chassis
  • shocks look and feel top notch
  • super low CG
  • nice looking motor mount that keeps the motor and pinion centered in the mount
  • use either direct drive or Tekno tracktion drive or clutch system
  • mechanical brakes can be used with a nice integrated servo mount in the mud gaurd

And here are the pics:





Great stuff, and it was nice talking to the Tekno guys

Well done on what I would call a true 1/8 electric buggy that was well thought out and designed from the ground up without any nitro influence on layout.

Looking good! I'm a bit weary since its a totally new car from Tekno, but I have faith in them. I'll maybe wait a few months after release to see if there are any other bugs to be worked out.

I previously asked in PM, and was told they are always looking to expand. I then sent an email out. Unfortunately I never did get a reply back Good luck if you do.

There is a write up from Austin Blair on the amain hobbies blog regarding the testing he has done with the car. He says he has raced it with a Castle power system designed for the 4X4 short course trucks. Any chance of releasing it in SC form? It would be nice to have a reliable truck based on 1/8 drive train parts.

Got a question, how will the layout look like with the mech brakes? I noticed you guys have gone for a key/slot motor mount and I believe this may interfere with the front/rear brake discs if there were to be mech brakes.

The previous Tekno conversions used a longshank pinion for clearance.

Take a look at the picture, behind the battery is a mounting point for a brake servo, just add a diff center diff mount, throw on discs, and brake cams. Bam ya got brakes!
