The Tekno Universal Driveshaft Set is CNC machined from high-quality steel alloy and black oxidized for wear resistance. Extreme working angles are no problem and as a pure Tekno part, they are durable and will wear very well. They are also light weight as the excess material has been removed without compromising performance or strength.
Universal driveshafts excel in bumpy and rough conditions. The suspension is allowed to work more efficiently without the increased binding of a CVA assembly. Reduced binding 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 (pistons, springs, and oil).
The basic design of a universal driveshaft means virtually no maintenance is required and dirt and dust won’t foul the operation of the joint. These are ready to drop into your ET/NT48.3 with the use of additional 8x16x5mm bearings. One bearing is required for the inside of each wheel hub assembly. The ET/NT48.3 come stock with 8x16x5mm outer bearings, so you only need four extra bearings to complete the conversion.
- Improved handling in rough or bumpy conditions
- CNC machined and black coated for wear resistance
- Light weight and virtually maintenance free
- Direct fit on ET48.3 and NT48.3 1/8th truggies
These are compatible with the original ET48 and NT48 but require the updated EB/NB48.3 spindles (TKR5193) and spindle carriers (TKR5194) as well as the 48.3 rear hubs (TKR5199, TKR5199A, TKR5199B).
