Episode 23, part two of the Tekno EB48 2.0 build! Time to install some electronics and get this car set up for the track. We are going with an RX8 GEN3, T8 GEN3 1900KV motor and a T-250 steering servo. Battery is a Tekin 4S 6500mAh Power Cell, look for those to officially release soon!Continue reading
The Tekno EB48 2.0 is Tekno RC’s newest iteration of the EB48 1/8 E-buggy platform. Lots of changes were made from the EB48.4, like the 4mm chassis plate, longer suspension arms, narrow suspension pivot points, high volume differential housings and easy access to said differentials. The new chassis is wider and the weight has been shifted forward a bit, giving great stability. The EB48 2.0 has proven to be a durable, fast and very drivable 1/8 scale electric buggy platform, so lets build one and see for ourselves!Continue reading
Let’s talk shims! Shimming. No, it’s not a dance move, I’m talking about positioning the rotor in your brushless motor and limiting its lateral movement using shims. Shims are included with your Tekin GEN4 motor and the rotor has already been shimmed at the factory. It’s not always perfect, so like gapping your spark plugs (yes you should) even though they are pre-gapped, you should shim your rotor (yes you should) even though it is pre-shimmed.Continue reading
Had a good time this weekend at the Golden State Arena Cross at Delta RC. Ended up taking the overall TQ and wins in 4wd Mod Buggy, 1/8 E-Buggy and 4wd SCT! The event also had a Dash for Cash but I didn’t end up winning that, it was fun anyways though. Overall a fun time just hanging out with some old friends that I haven’t seen in a while.
Thank you to all my sponsors for the continued support!
1:10 4WD Truck is a class that looks to be gaining some momentum in a few areas and Matt Dortmund showed the field how it’s done the last weekend at Round 4 of the Northwest Championship Tour in Pasco, WA. The track at Tri-Cities RC Raceway is a tenth scale racer’s dream with its smooth surface, good traction and fast, flowing layouts. There is usually very little room for error in Pasco and every single lap on the clay-type surface demands precision driving and calm nerves. Tekin Driver Matt Dortmund took both the TQ and the win on mains day with his full Tekin-powered 1:10 Truggy.
T-250 Steering Servo
Round 4 of the Northwest Championship Tour took place in Pasco, WA this last weekend at the Tri-Cities RC Raceway. Entries peaked at over 300 and the field was stacked with top drivers from all over the Northwest. Tekin Driver Tayler Wonders left it all out on the track with both of his Tekno 1:8 scale buggies and dominated the field in qualifying, securing TQ and ultimately took the win in both coveted classes!
