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.

I like the idea of the fueling bay and single cockpit design. I think it looks sharp but I'll have a better opinion once I see it up close and painted dependant on how the windshield is masked off and how functional the refuelling is. Very progressive changes to car design as well.

My hope is that everyone appreciates the functionality of the body. The refueling bay was the main thing I wanted to incorporate into the design. It also allows the body to be more rigid around the cockpit. There's also an embossed ring around the engine head, again to create a stronger body that doesn't flex as much as a traditional body would.

I plan to. I like doing that as a baseline, then I'll make changes from there.

Any particular reason people go with more torque for their throttle brake servo vice their steering servo? I'm looking at the hitec 9370/9380s and I see people running the 9380 for their throttle brake and the 9370 for their steering. Seems to me the 9370 would be just fine for the throttle brake. Thanks for the input.

Yea my son uses 8370 combo.. 9380/8380 is a lot of torque. Adam uses the 9380 for throttle. 8370 is enough in my opinion. Some like more powerful breaks.

I think it's the best way to start off . Because someone set up might be good for their driving style but may not suit your style of driving so I'm gonna start with stock settings on my Nb48.4 and take notes from Ryan Lutz and incorporate with my ideas till it suits me. I hope this helps bro.. oh Why hasn't anyone posted pics if the .4 yet lol mine still has clear body as I can't find a color scheme yet

I already asked this question in the electric thread but I can't have an answer actually ( it seems there are not so many available kits ).
I thought about this steering ackerman style :
I would like to study how asymmetric the system is, like I have already shown for the Losi Eight with long ackerman plate... ( the proportional side is always for the right wheel )
With this set up, you will have differents curves so, differents EPA...between left and right...
Can I ask you dimensional measurements, in millimeter, for A, B, C and D ?
( each time from the center of each pivot point )



Thanks,
Bye !
