Hello my name is Sean, just joined the tekno forum! Let's get right to it. Going to be covering a Father / Son build I did with my dad.

Little intro, I myself got into RC about 3 months ago. Starting with a Slash Ultimate 4x4, getting my girlfriend a Slash VXL 2wd. Then getting a Traxxas Maxx.
I'm having a blast! Got hit with the "bug" I'm begging my dad to get back into RC as he had a Losi xxt stadium truck when I was a little kid! He said, "well if I'm getting back into this hobby, I'm not getting a Slash, I'm going all out"! So he goes with the latest and greatest ET48 2.0! Naturally I had to join him and be apart of this. So I myself bought a ET48 2.0 the same day. Here's our builds (Identical)🤘

⬇️Quick rundown of build⬇️
-Tekno ET48 2.0 (TKR9600)
- Hobbywing Xerun XR8 Plus Brushless ESC/G3 Motor Combo (2250kV) (HWA38020431)
-Tekno RC "M5" Hardened Steel Mod1 Pinion Gear w/5mm Bore (15T) (TKR4175)
-ProTek RC 170TBL "Black Label" High Torque Brushless Servo (PTK-170TBL)
-ProTek RC 30x30x10mm Aluminum High Speed HV Cooling Fan (PTK-2111)
-Exotek 1/8 V2 E-Buggy Clamp On Fan Mount (EXO1914BLK)
-Tekno RC Aluminum Single Sided Clamping Servo Horn (25T) (TKR5253B)
-Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver (FUT01004353-3)
-Spektrum 5000mAh 4S 100C Smart 🔋(SPMX50004S100H5)

After alot of time spent building, with lots of frustration. The build wasn't as easy as we thought (Noobs). Some parts were just plain hard but overall things went smooth and we couldn't be happier with the end result! They came out great and run even better !

Unfortunately for my dad , reasons unknown his original esc went out at the track. With alot of going back and forth with hobbywing he decided to try the Holy grail setup and went with the tried and true Tekin setup!! RX8 Gen 3 2250kV
It does look good. Hopefully this setup works out better for him and we'll be getting back to the track.

I run the Tekin setups in all my Tekno rigs as well as my other 1/8 stuff. I tried the hobbywing combo in my 8ight-XTE when I got it as I run them in ally 1/10 rigs, but it had issues on 6s so I picked up another 2250kv Tekin combo and like all the others its been perfect. Enjoy those rigs!

We’re going to the track tomorrow. Revelation Raceway in Montclair CA. First time with the Tekin set up. Hoping for a good turnout for the truggy. Thanks for your feed back

Great day at the track. The new Tekin Rx8 held up great. I was able to hook up the Hotwire and do some fine tuning. One of my Spectrum hard case battery packs split open. When I tried to charge or discharge it says incorrect battery connection. I’m looking for batteries now. I don’t want go with Spectrum. Any suggestions?
