I don't know if it is a good financial decision for tekno to make a truggy but would pre-order one the second I could.

I understand where you're coming from, I do. E-Truggy is big in the northeast, and is growing more and more. More companies are coming out with E-Specific built Truggies. The big point I'm trying to make is all the guys who run the EB-48 would also run the E-Truggy class if this was an option from Tekno, well maybe not all of them, but I'm sure a lot would. Very fun class to run, and they make great basher's no doubt. 1/8 e-buugy and Truggy is always packed here and I would love to have a ET48 to compliment my buggy. I would prefer to run the same brand.

As far a finacial stand point, the design is already there with the EB48. Just build off of that for starter's. God I want this so bad I can taste it

From a business standpoint, I believe a Truggy is going to happen. Tekno buggy fans will buy them. Loyal Truggy fans driving other manufacturer's cars could be more inclined to switching to the tekno brand if a Truggy was available, benefiting et48 sales and eb48 sales. A full 1/8 scale e line makes the most sense for brand growth and being cost effective. I imagine a et48 is going to be in the works soon.

part reuse is always a plus, so from that perspective a truggy could make sense.

Even a Tekno ET48 Conversion would be cool versus coming up with a complete new kit. Chassis, arms, towers, etc.

heck, I wonder if you could bolt on some brands a-arms, cvds, etc. You would just need to get a chassis made at that point. Not as a good as a direct Tekno, but, could be a start lol.
