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.
“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. We ask a lot out of our cars during races, and now thanks to the new driveline and newly designed differentials, the buggy remains consistent during a race. 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.”
“The new NB48 2.0 is a great chassis platform, with a lot of new and exciting design features and concepts. Being new to Tekno, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but from lap 1 in testing, I’ve been very comfortable. The design aspect of this car was to give the driver a much better racing experience on bumpy and challenging track conditions, and that’s exactly what the car gives you. Add on all the adjustability, this car is also the best handling car I’ve driven on smooth and fast tracks. The Tekno customers expecting bulletproof durability are not going to be disappointed either, and the hardcore racer that wants to #RACETOWIN will be very pleased with the performance.”
“I remember when I drove the 2.0 for the first time, everything was easier :). The new geometry and larger diffs increased consistency during long finals, allowing me to push the car harder and faster. The new 2.0 platform is also so much more consistent in rough and high grip conditions. But the thing I like best is how the car works well at all the different tracks I visited with very minimal setup changes.”
