"I'm excited to be a part of the Tekno program!! I have driven the vehicles and have been very impressed with the speed, adjustability, and quality of the products. After spending some time with the crew behind the scenes, I was able to see how much commitment and passion goes into these vehicles." —Ryan Maifield

Tekno RC NB48 2.1 Overview:

Designed to push the limits of off-road racing

The Tekno NB48 2.1 builds off of the groundbreaking chassis platform of the NB48 2.0 by offering incredible rough track handling, extreme durability, ease of maintenance, and innovative design features. The Team at Tekno wanted to offer a major upgrade to the NB48 platform while also including never before seen features. With standard features on the NB48 2.1 such as revised shock towers, updated body, Ackermann spindle plates, offset brake cams, tall wing mount, more durable gearboxes, and chassis braces it's easy to see the incredible value offered with this buggy.

One of the major updates to the NB48 2.1 is the updated front end geometry. Lengthening the camber link is key to improving stability and predictability. With years of development, Tekno has been able to create a C-hub to accommodate a longer camber link bringing a significant improvement to the handling of this vehicle. Pairing this updated geometry with longer rear suspension arms that incorporate an adjustable roll center there is no doubt the NB48 2.1 offers an innovative design with performance to match.

Tekno RC NB48 2.1 1/8 Competition Off-Road Nitro Buggy Kit
This is my first nitro buggy build. I have to say it went together very smoothly. The instructions are top notch. Everything is explained throughout the manual. The kit came with everything. Out of all the cars I've built over the last 30 years, this was one of the best builds I've done. Electronics installation is a breeze. I highly recommend this kit!!
