Tekno RC V3 Brushless Kit for Mugen MBX5T (42mm Castle/Tekin Motors)
I used this kit for my first 1/8 conversion & could not believe how complete this kit is & how easy it was to install.Running a very large 6s 6000 mah battery this conversion handles better than the gas version.They moved the weight around to give what feels like double the steering of the gas truck & pretty much the only setup changes from gas to elec was minor oil weight changes.I have since talked to the guys at Tekno & found them about the most helpful knowledgeable company I have ever dealt with.A plus on value & service.I also have bought another of their conversion kits for one of my buggy's.)

Tekno RC V3 Brushless Kit for Mugen MBX5T (42mm Castle/Tekin Motors)
Recently got back into RC racing and seems most everyone in my area as switched from Nitro to Electric. Decided to buy this conversion for my MBX5T instead of getting a more up to date kit. So far I am really impressed with the quality of this kit and the finished product seems to be just as competitive as other electric truggies at my local track.

Running this with a Tekin RX8 Gen 2 and T8 Gen 2 2250kV motor with 4S LiPo's just fine at my local track.)
