Tekno NT48 1/8 nitro truggy kit

Tekno NT48 1/8 nitro truggy kit

Tekno RC have released first images and information on the forthcoming NT48 competition nitro truggy kit. Building on the EB48 and SCT410 platform Tekno’s first nitro truck is designed with performance and durability in mind and thus features newly designed “solid” lower A-arms, sturdy 6mm front and 5mm rear shock towers as well as extra long 122mm and 137mm big bore shock absorbers to make full use of the up and down travel the suspension design allows. The truck is based on a 4mm 7075 hard-anodised aluminium chassis that allows for a front or rear biased engine position to alter weight distribution and the drivetrain is equipped with straight-cut hardened steel gears, lightened outdrives and captured CV driveshafts all-round. The stopping duties are taken care of by steel brake discs and semi-metallic brake pads while the kit comes with an adjustable 4-shoe clutch system. Other features include lightened pivot balls, steering posts and wheel hubs, an easily adjustable wing mount system, the kit offers a wide parts compatibility with the other Tekno RC vehicles and it comes with a newly designed body that snuggly fits around the chassis and the side pods. The NT48 will become available early 2014.
