Are you referring to Bag O Step 1? If so those screws don't just fall into place. You'll need to push the clutch shoe towards the center and press somewhat hard down on the nut driver to get it all to line up. The springs keeping the shoes pulled in need to be under tension, that's what makes the screws hard to install.

Tekno much more durable IMHO. Drove the .4 for a year and never broke anything due to impact.

Iím curious as to why the rear bottom shock guide is longer than the front? Is it a performance thing, or a way to distinguish between front and rear.

Mostly because we didn't need or want the amount of uptravel the shorter guide provided. And since we didn't need or want more rear droop we decided to use a longer guide versus a shorter tower. As a bonus it does help easily distinguish the rear shocks from the front.

Edit : Speaking of uptravel, when running the rear hub in the 3, 4, or 5 position be sure to limit your uptravel and increase your droop to match your previous settings.

Will the shock guides be sold in a set specifically for the NB48 2.0 or will you need to purchase a full set of the short and the long guides? All my RC's have been Tekno's and I have had some people trying to convince me to get the Mugen for my first nitro buggy but after seeing the new NB48 2.0 there is no way I could do that, it just looks way to awesome and all the changes I was looking for have been done.

Had a racer running a 2.0 at the track yesterday. I would say very comparable to a well set up TKI 3/4 . Tekno is Much more durable and affordable tho. We have some big air that will put a beating on cars, The Tekno just soaked it up.

We don't have any plans for a shock guide set with 1 pair of each. If you're looking to keep spares but only want to buy 1 set I would buy the short guide set. Also pick up some TKR5125 o-rings to use as uptravel limiters. They're good to have for tuning as changing your uptravel can make a surprising difference on the track.

Curious if now the chassis is not quite as narrow if other bodies might fit...
