Tekno NB48 2.0 tall wing mount

Tekno RC have announced the release of a new tall wing mount designed to further enhance the performance of the new NB48 2.0 buggy. This wing mount raises the wing 10mm and moves it 12.5mm forward, helping to move weight more towards the front of the vehicle while improving roll characteristics. Intended to be used when racing on low grip conditions, this wing mount will reduce the mid-corner “pendulum” effect while keeping the rear more planted. The tall wing mount is a direct replacement for the standard wing mount and does not require additional hardware.

Leadfinger Racing NB48 2.0 Tactic A2.1 body

Leadfinger Racing have introduced their Tactic A2.1 body shell for the new Tekno RC NB48 2.0 buggy. First introduced in mid 2019, the A2.1 Tactic body design form has proven it self on the track with a handful of different platforms. For the NB48 2.0 the designers had to adapt the A2.1 design to the buggy’s unique layout with these differences resulting in widening the cab and adding to the size of the side pod scoops for clearance. To keep performance in check, additional downforce was added to the rear of the side pods and rear centre of the body. The cab is topped off with a shark fin for stability and to finish off the design a front scoop was added. The body is available now and it includes window masks and a sticker sheet.
