Hi,

It depends ons the servo you use, a safe bet would be around 65mm (Overall length). When setting up your linkage make sure your servo horn is parallel with the servo saver arm. Let us know if you need any further help!

I have two that I use, the Ofna Blue Box that is close to 10 years old and then an Ofna 10244. The 10244 is much small but still starts my 48.3 with no problems and is also the one I take to the track due to it's size.

I use the Ofna Blue box for both. No adjustment needed from buggy to truggy.

It should be fine out of the box. The only thing you may need to change will be diff and shock oil weights. The stock setup is fairly dialed out of the box, but you may need to make basic tuning changes depending on your track.

I believe the .3 comes with 10 deg brake cams. I would get the alum servo horn, alum diff cross pins and delrin shock cartridge set. And rear mud guards maybe.

Guys, I'm trying to pick up a new Truggy and at this point I am very interested in the NT48.3, but the only thing holding back is the front steering spindle and tekno has no option for aluminum spindles. I do a lot of jump landing with steering and I really don't know if it'll hold up for my abuse. I tend to drive with a lot of oversteer instead of off power steering and this truck seems to suit my driving style or am I wrong?

How many of you guys have broken the spindles so far?
THanks for your help.

I had the truck from the beginning and drove it like I stole it. almost 2 years and never broke a spindle. It is a very solid truck.

I would be impressed if you manage to break a spindle or carrier on this truck. You'll rip the
hinge pins out of the toe blocks before you break an arm or spindle and that takes a HUGE hit
to do that. I am literally talking about hitting another truck standing still at full speed.

As far as driving style goes you can adapt the setup to suit just about any style you want.

I have broken exactly 1 plastic part in 2 years and that was a rear chassis brace, as soon as
I started running both rear braces I have had zero issues with it.

Thanks for the feedback guys. It's definitely the truck I want to try now, just waiting patiently until the used market prices settle down, if not i'd rather just buy a new kit.

Just ran the nt48.3 for the first time and wow no wonder this thread is slow.
The truggy is perfect in its natural state. Hands down the best truggy i've had.
Truggy doesnt need a single thing. No headaches and no worries. Im in love.
Theres literally nothing to talk about besides the fact that the truggy is perfect and has tons of steering like no other. Has more steering than my buggy. Simply put I would say the Tekno NT48.3 Is the perfect truggy that Ive always dreamed of. 2 thumbs up to Tekno.
