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.

Well my first though is the .4 feels easier to push harder, easier to drive with out feeling like your over driving, turns on a dime with only small changes from box set up, I went up rear sway bar, up 50 wt shock oils and one heavier spring all round, rest felt really good on a loose blown out bumpy track, 3 day event this weekend on a grippy grooved clay so get back to you next week

Hey bud I know one thing so far as I haven't ran my new .4 yet but quality is very much and every bit as much up there with Kyosho all day long . The build was flawless and fit and finish was incredible.. I can't wait to get this buggy on the track.Ryan Lutz told me it's so much easier to drive fast without pushing it hard . I hope this helps sway you to a Tekno .. I'm so happy with my purchase and I paid about 350$less and the quality is just as good . Kyosho is a legendary company and the mp9 is a great buggy ,but to me it's like buying Jordans ur paying for the name . but ask a Kyosho driver and they'll usually say If a person is complaining about the price then they couldn't afford it .. so Ive heard . But the TEKNO is every bit as good if not better specially in performance.just my Opinion

This is my first tekno, it's a top level buggy out the box. Toughest buggy on the market. New buggy is supposed to be way easier to drive compared to th .3, been racing Mugen for the past 5yrs. Felt right at home with this buggy. My son said he felt he needed to push the mugen harder to go fast compared to the tekno. Above all, the company is really supportive!!

totally agree, how's the driveline, a k car, you can blow on it and it rolls?? ZERO resistance=less power needed=less fill ups= extra lap??? if your at that level, I time my tanks and driving, I can drop any car on any track and honest box setup, ILL ADJUST TO IT,LOL, IT MORE about fuel consumption and how many pit stops in a 30 min a main, local, 1 hour , race....IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE,


I see these guy slamming the heck out of the throttle, try feathering the throttle like a electric, and put ear lugs in so you don't hear every goof ball revving to the moon, and tell me your not noticeably faster.......you WILL be, thanks I think ill order a couple kits now.....

Here is some video footage from the first heat ( first event with the new car ) ACT State Titles, I made some changes during the event and buggy feels great.

Went 2.5 rear sway bar, 600/500 shocks, 8/8/5 diff oils and pink front springs and red rear springs, now the buggy feels teknotastic for my driving style, everything else is still box set up

+ YouTube Video

Nice video SAM, I run almost same setup except for 6k in center. Easier to get on power on Med loose conditions.

Who painted this body?
