The Tekno ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit shares many of the parts and design elements first introduced on the EB48 2.0 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 ET48 2.0. Features from the 2.0 buggies have been carried over, 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 center adjustments by adjusting the axle height, and the active rear toe system has been carried over as well. 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. The quick access differentials with increased volume have also been included to improve consistency and efficiency with minimal maintenance time. 

The ET48 2.0 body has an industry-first exposed front shock tower design as well as a more truck-like appearance. The body is lighter, creates more downforce for increased steering response, flies through the air with greater ease and closer resembles a full size vehicle. Finally, during testing, the body was found to last longer than “standard” truggy bodies.

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
My son has built the first kit and told me the build quality, fit and finish, strength, innovative designs and friction free movement of suspension components is even superior to our
Mugen Seiki vehicles. I went ahead and ordered another ET48 2.0 and have plans to purchase two EB48 2.0 soon. So basically we're gonna replace our whole 1/8
scale line up of truggy's and buggy's from Mugen Seiki to 100% Tekno.

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
The long wait actually ended a couple months ago and I got the new version of my favorite RC vehicle of all time!! I decided to try a new brand of kit back in the summer of 2018, and I knew I wanted to start out with an E-truggy. I had heard of Tekno but honestly did very little research before deciding to order the ET48.3, having really only read the description on here, AMains site, and I had heard that Tekno rigs were known for being one of the most durable and heavy duty of the brands that pros get paid to race. Anyway, I picked up a tekin combo, new Protek LiHV packs and a high end charger, a Futaba 7px.... basically dove back into the hobby big time after several years off as I could actually afford to do it right this time. In short I was so happy and impressed with the ET48.3 that within the next 2 weeks I had also ordered the EB48.4 and SCT410.3, and as soon as the EB410.2, ET410.2 and then the EB48 2.0 came out they were added to the Tekno garage. But this ET48 2.0 is really what Ive been waiting for, eapecially after getting and seeing the EB 2.0 I knew I would like it more than the .3. Out of all the Tekno rigs, hundreds of laps at the track and hours messing around in parking lots and in the yard I have had maybe 5 things break between all the vehicles. Ive had 5 things break with certain brands in a couple of days before. Couple the durability with the performance and ease of maintenance and Im a huge fan. 5 big stars just like every other Tekno rig Ive got.

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
Awesome truggy tekno did there homework to bring a very well designed truck
I built the truck by the book and raced it and took 3rd and in my next race I’m not changing anything. During the build be careful on the diffs screws and the ones that go into the bottom of the gear boxes there super tight ( a little grease goes a long way)

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
The ET48 2.0 is my second Tekno vehicle. The manuel was the beat of the best. Every part went together smooth. Remember to use chapstick and or grease in tight plastics like the rod ends and the bottom of the gear box to chassis. Take your time and the build will reward you. The decals are pre-cut also. The aluminum Caster blocks are. A marvel to look at and super light weight. A main got my package on time to me great service as always. Everyone DONT THINK TWICE GET THE ET48 2.0 And see u at the podium

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
Parts, finish, and material is absolutely stunning not to mention the engineering that went into this kit. I've build over 60 kits from various manufactures and I have to say the innovations in this kit is just ahead of the time. As far as how it went together, it's on par or surpassing the finest Tamiya TRF kits. Other than a steel center diff gear, this is the first vehicle that I feel there is nothing needed to upgrade. Smoothest drivetrain I've ever seen. Better than Xray and Mugen. You won't be disappointed.

Truck is really aggressive yet easy to drive. Jumps great with no issues with corrections mid air...very response. Build quality is top notch with excellent part fitment. Very happy with purchase and no regrets on switching to Tekno from the Losi 8XTe...

Tekno RC ET48 2.0 1/8 Electric 4WD Off Road Truggy Kit
I'm new to Tekno have been racing buggy for some months now but when I tell you this thing box stock is the easiest thing to drive ever. Practiced 1 day with it and got 4th out of 9 racers in the first time ever racing it and I am by no means a good racer. Tekno seems to make decent parts as well their kits are nice and the parts feel like you're never going to have to replace them ever. Buy this thing and a have a great time building it and racing it!
