This is the Tekno RC V4 Brushless Kit, and is intended for use with the Mugen MBX6 1/8 scale buggy. Tekno RC brought you the first 'electric specific' 1/8th chassis, the first 1/8th slipper system, and the strongest most secure motor mounting system available anywhere. The V4 kit represents state of the art in 1/8th Electric Offroad. With 50/50 Left/Right balance and 50/50 Front/Rear balance, no other platform comes close. Throw the lowest overall CG available into the mix and you have a package that outperforms the competition. This translates to a car that is more consistent, uses less power, and is easier to drive faster.

All New Chassis Layout: To start, the center differential was moved towards the rear of the vehicle to make better use of the space available on the chassis. As a result, the battery is tucked as close to center, as far forward, and as low as possible. This allowed the center driveline to be straightened for most of the popular platforms providing improved efficiency, increased durability, and less heat. The motor is turned around and moved forward for better steering response while balancing perfectly with the battery Left to Right as well as Front to Rear. Lighter components such as the ESC and optional brake servo are placed low and towards the rear.

New Radio Box, ESC Tray, and Transponder Mount: The V4 radio box is a very versatile little box. Plenty of room for today's most popular receivers and a modular design allows it to be used on both the V3 and V4 chassis, as well as DIY projects requiring a compact receiver box. It can be mounted on any V3 chassis where the mechanical brake servo would normally be mounted. On the V4 chassis, it can be mounted along side the steering servo in front or in back where the mechanical brake servo would go - it's your choice. An integrated antenna mount completes the receiver box package.

The new ESC Tray is lighter and mounts lower to the chassis than the V3. The softer plastic material safely cushions the ESC and sits a mere 7mm off the surface of the chassis. A new transponder mount makes transponder placement an easy task while remaining lightweight, versatile and durable.

Battery Tray: The V4 buggy kits feature a new battery tray (142x52mm, ROAR spec) that is recessed into the chassis for even lower center of gravity. The proven durable 3-strap system ensures your battery doesn't move during use. The tray is secured with countersunk screws and has a compact footprint for those DIY projects.

  • Direct Drive (standard pinion) + Motor Brakes

I own the the older V3 conversion, which is of great quality. This new V4 is obviously the best design yet with the most optimal weight distribution, but one disappointment is the absense of the screws threaded in to the chassis that support the droop screws on the original V3. This could double the life of your chassis, and was an awesome feature, but it's not there anymore. Sorry, I usually don't rate something unless I own the exact piece, but I just had to point this out. I'll go ahead and give it 5 stars, as it is the most complete conversion on the market.)
