Tekno R/C Hardened Steel Front/Rear Universal Driveshaft Set. Optional universal driveshafts are now available for use on your NB48.3 and EB48.3 1/8th buggies! The driveshaft assemblies are CNC machined from high quality steel alloy and black oxidized for wear resistance. They are durable and will wear very well, and extreme working angles are no problem. Plus, excess material has been removed to make them as light as possible without compromising performance or strength. Package includes two driveshafts.
The design of a universal driveshaft reduces maintenance, and the movement of the joint will not be affected by dirt and dust. These are a direct replacement upgrade for your EB/NB48.3, but require the use of one 8x16x5mm bearing (not included) for the inside of each wheel hub assembly. The EB/NB48.3 includes stock with 8x16x5mm outer bearings so you only need 4 extra bearings to add these to all four corners of your buggy.
Universal driveshafts excel in bumpy and rough conditions. The suspension is allowed to work more efficiently without the extra binding of a CVA assembly. This allows the vehicle to absorb bumps better with a reduced risk of “catching a rut” and flipping the car while cornering. For smoother tracks, CVA’s will produce more traction and support, but universals are also well suited with slight suspension setup changes (springs and oil).
- Improved handling in rough or bumpy conditions
- CNC machined and black coated for wear resistance
- Light weight and virtually maintenance free
- Direct fit on EB48.3 and NB48.3 1/8th buggies
NOTE: These are compatible with the original EB48, EB48.2, and NB48 but require the updated EB/NB48.3 spindles (TKR5193) and spindle carriers (TKR5194).
