Tekno EB/NB48 split shock towers & shock standoffs

Tekno RC is pleased to announce the availability of new split shock towers and shock standoffs for their EB/NB48 2.x 1:8 buggies.  These redesigned towers are lighter than the 2.1 stock towers and flex-tuned for better rough track handling.  Throughout testing we found the car to be more forgiving, and easier to push for improved lap times.  They are CNC machined from 7075 aluminium, gunmetal anodised, and are a direct replacement for kit towers.  No additional hardware is necessary.  With the new shock standoffs, instead of the previously used M4 nut, these standoffs attach to the shock tower with an M4 screw for improved durability.  Tests have shown them to be significantly stronger and more likely to withstand a direct impact.  These new standoffs are CNC machined from high-quality steel and have a keyed shaft that accommodates a Turnbuckle Wrench for easy installation.
