Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8th 4wd EP truggy

Following the recent introduction of the EB/NB48 2.0 buggies, it was only a matter of time until Tekno incorporated all of the cool features into an all-new truck platform. The ET48 2.0 shares many of the parts and design elements first introduced on the buggy. A primary goal of this project was to minimise the additional parts needed to help keep drivers on the track or bashing at their favourite spot. You will find that quite a few of the parts you already have will work on the new ET48 2.0. They carried over features first seen with the 2.0 buggies such as the industry-first suspension arms with built-in caster. This allows a longer overall arm length, ideal front-end geometry and increased durability. It has rear hubs that provide roll centre adjustments by adjusting the axle height and they carried over the active rear toe system. A substantial amount of time was invested in developing the smoothest suspension package available to make the truck a breeze to drive in the roughest conditions. They also brought over the quick access differentials with increased volume that improves consistency and efficiency with minimal maintenance time. And naturally, it has the extreme toughness as well as the great handling that Tekno RC vehicles are known for.

JConcepts RM2 tuning screwdriver & wing button

From JConcepts and Ryan Maifield’s RM2 collaboration is this engine tuning screwdriver. The aluminium handle is custom machined, red anodised and spiced with 2nd operation silver highlighting to bring some luster to the pit area. The top of the wrench is capped with injection moulded JC plug and the handle itself is topped off with laser etched JConcepts logo for authenticity. The tip of any wrench is mandatory for function and control. The spring steel flat blade screwdriver is made of multiple pieces and pre-assembled. The tip slides into a sleeve which is secured with beefy set screw located on the adapter itself. The tip is precision ground for shape, angle, and thickness for the all-important engagement into carburettor adjustment screws. The entire steel tip assembly slides into the handle and snaps into place courtesy of the magnet located in the handle. The magnet has enough holding power to maintain position during use and the occasional drop and pop during normal usage. When it is time to pack-up the pits or drop the footprint, simply pull the tip assembly out and place alongside the handle in the toolbox or bag.

Schumacher Racing would like to welcome Tyler Jones to their team for 1/10th 2wd. Tyler’s main role will still be with Tekno for their 1/8th and 1/10th 4wd platforms, however he has chosen to run the Schumacher Laydown for his 2wd program. Tyler has recently been showing excellent pace at many events and is a great upcoming driver. Tyler had this to say, ‘I am so stoked to be joining Schumacher for my 2wd, I’ve tried many 2wd cars and felt the most comfortable and at home with the Laydown from the get go. It is great that we have managed to work a deal together to make this happen! My thanks go to Muz, Robin and the guys at Schumacher and I’m excited to be on track soon’. He will be competing mainly at local events, but when time allows he plans to do a few larger events later in the year.
