NB48 2.0

Tekno RC has shared more information and features of their new NB48 2.0 1/8th Scale Competition Nitro Buggy. Below some quotes from drivers on their experience with this new buggy: Joe Bornhorst, Jared Tebo and Alex Zanchettin.

Joe Bornhorst:

“The first thing that comes to mind when I think about the 2.0 is drivability. No matter the condition, the 2.0 feels more in the track and more comfortable to drive than any Tekno buggy in the past.

Also, with all three diffs now being ‘easy access’, it’s a dream to work on. Going to the races recently, my confidence has never been higher, and a big part of that can be attributed to the 2.0.”
