Tekno RC EB48.4 1:8 Scale E-Buggy Build

Tekno RC EB48.4 1:8 Scale E-Buggy Build

Tekno RC’s EB48 platform has been coming on strong over the past couple years. Their newest buggy has added a .4 to the name and features a slew of improvements over earlier models. Of course we were stoked to get one not just to review, but to post up an online build to help those that might need building tips.

Here’s the list of parts we’ll be using in this build – click the links for more information:

Before we get started, though, there are a few tools we suggest you have on hand to make the build process much easier:
MIP Hex Driver Set
MIP 3.0 Hex Driver
STRC Shock Shaft Pliers
Xacto Hobby Knife
Hudy 17mm Wheel Wrench
Scotch Mounting Tape
Tekton Needlenose Pliers

With any 1:8 scale builds, I also suggest using a cordless driver to make the build easier. If you have the budget, I suggest the following:
Makita DF010DSE 7.2V Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill
MIP Metric Speed Tip Set
MIP Standard Speed Tip Set
