What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

Aluminum Servo Horn:

-TKR5251B (23T)
-TKR5252B (24T)
-TKR5253B (25T)

TiNi Shock Shafts

-TKR6017T (front)
-TKR6061T (Rear)

This car is very durable. Here are the spare parts that we recommend you keep on hand:
Tips and Tricks
Vehicle Setup Adjustments and Build Tips

Tekno RC Instructional YouTube Video Playlist


Warranty Policy:
Tekno RC is the only company in the industry that will give 50% off of parts if returned to them using the General Warranty return policy found on our website. The parts can be lightly used or completely abused, as long as the part is still being produced it's covered!

Piston Drills:
Some of our setups recommend using pistons that are enlarged. For instance 4x1.9 or 3x2.0. To drill the pistons we recommend the following:
GMK Supply Piston Drill Set
16PC Metric Bit Set Metric Sizes 2.00 to 3.00 MM.

Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all of our vehicles can be found here.

What is overdrive and when should I use it?

The NB48.4 comes stock with a 12t pinion (TKR8152) and the 39t ring (TKR8151) in both the front and rear and the EB48.4 has a 12t pinion (TKR8152B) and the 40t ring (TKR8151B) in both the front and rear.

The two sets of gears are used to overdrive the front of the EBs or underdrive the rear of the NBs. If you have both vehicles and want to try underdrive it's as easy as swapping the front diff and pinion of the EB and the rear diff and pinion of the NB. Underdrive helps on very loose tracks, when you need more on power steering or if the rear of the car feels loose.

All of the manufacturers make their own IFMAR legal wings now, including Tekno. Not sure why so many chose to run the HB wing. Must have been some advantage to it.

of proline wing so he can use it. I know Tlr has a new wing for the x buggy.

I think what JQ is alluding to, is that many still do not, because their Team Drivers have a Body (& Wing) Sponsor as well of which they usually provide a compliant wing, and as such are not bound like the Kyosho Drivers were to run OEM Equipment.,

Our current wing, TKR5292, is not IFMAR legal. The wing on Ryan's car is not a HB, it's a proto wing from us that is IFMAR/ROAR legal. My understanding is that a lot of drivers run the AE wing on their cars, it's light and has less downforce and side support.

The shock shafts are 122mm and 137mm its likely that they are longer than anything you currently have. The Tekno buggy's have tall shock towers.

48.3 and 48.4 use the same size shocks. Earlier versions use different shock lengths.

Joe's Rough track setup maybe a good starting point Alum Servo Arm, Maybe center universals as basic upgrades.
