Looking to pick up a kit.
No racing tracks near me so I generally just bash about with my brother.
I have a bashing truck already, and am considering the Tekno kit as more a build project and on road buggy rather then for racing.

Whats the main difference between the EB48 and EB10? Theres quite a price difference between the two, is the EB48 the 'one to go for'?

The EB48 is 1/8 size and built a little more rugged. The EB410 is 1/10 size and more nimble.

My 2 cents

for on-road bashing, either option will perform well, 1/8 will tend to be easier to see (because it's significantly larger) when doing speed runs and will also offer longer run times. There will also be a wider range of tire choices for 1/8 street treads, there are some 1/10 buggy street treads but just fewer choices compared to GT8 wheels. The EB48 will be significantly more durable, also will be more expensive to fit electronics, if you can afford it, I would go with the EB48, if money is tight, then the EB410 will do fine.

Another option to consider is the SCT410 which is based on the EB48 chassis, since it comes with body mounts, you can fit any 325mm body to make it a street beast!

There is a huge difference in the two.... I have both. In case you are new to Tekno, the model names have meaning:
-"E" - electric (vs Nitro)
-"B" - buggy (vs Truggy or Short Course Truck)
-"4" (4wd, although Tekno has no 2WD vehicles)
-"10" (10th scale, vs 8th scale)

So the EB48 is an 8th scale electric buggy, and the EB410 is a 10th scale electric buggy. Although the names are quite similar, the vehicles are completely different.

The EB410 is more of a "race track buggy" and has features (or doesn't have features) accordingly. For example, it has no servo saver, because people who race don't crash quite as often as us bashers do. This can cause you to strip servos (happened to me).

The EB48 is technically a race buggy, but Tekno's 8th scale line-up is so incredibly strong and tough that this line of vehicles is the go-to for many bashers. This is definitely the high-end of the price range (easily $1000 by the time you are all set, although you don't have to spend quite that much).

There is one downside to the EB48: it needs a lot of space. It is so powerful, and so fast, that you need a lot more room to enjoy it than you do for the EB410.

With all that said, I bought the EB410 for on-road use, and so far I am pretty happy with it. It is extremely quick and nimble. You might want to consider the truggy as well: ET410.

I had my EB48.4 setup as an on road racer for a while and it is a beast. With a 1900kv motor on 4s it feels unstoppable and like it could run forever.

if you are just bashing, i wouldn’t go with sensored electronics. There is almost no cogging on 4s anyhow. You can find very reasonably priced 1/8 electronics and motors (see juiceRC).

But if you are bashing with your brother, at the end of the day I would take the same scale he is using. Otherwise racing and bashing around won’t seem balanced and fun.

Buggies rip!!

Thanks for all the replies guys, mega helpful.

By bashing I don't mean Im a heavy basher - no huge jumps etc. Just general running around at the local park with a few very light jumps from bumps in the ground etc. I think the EB48 would be great for that, although its the build I'm looking more forward to! lol

Do you have an on road setup sheet? I normally run my 48.4 buggy off-road racing but with the corona virus shutting down the off road season I have been messing with it on road and have no idea what adjustments to make from my off-road setup. I got street tires for it, but that’s it. Do you have any setup adjustments you recommend?

Hey,

Just for you to know, I quickly moved back to off roading and off road setup for very simple reasons:
1) on-road racing on a parking lot is more of on-road bashing than anything else. Curbs and posts and all the stuff that is out there is not forgiving on an RC. You can destroy your RC in no time. I was learning RC at the time, it didn't help...
2) parking lot terrain is far from the smooth surface used for on-road racing. Which means that an off road rigs, particularly buggies, do actually great on parking lots with minimum modifications. When I occasionally drive it on the road, I don't change the setup anymore.

However, with minimum changes you can turn your buggy in a perfect on-road beast:
  • get stiffer orange springs in the front and put the stock front ones in the back
  • increase thickness of all shock oil accordingly (I kept this minimal and close to stock)
  • lower the ride
  • turn your old off road tires into on-road slicks and drive them till the end of them. I found my old off road tires to be better than on road tires (GRP S3) because of the very unclean nature of roads and parking lots
In short, with $10 shocks and whatever you have available in term of shock oil, you can do great.

Check this thread and the amazing support from @Billl DeLong. He gave me some great advice.

Thanks, I’ve only used it on freshly paved/asphalt parking lots with cone course in the wide open lot. I’ll take a look at my setup.
