I cant get the threads started on TKR9059 . Iam using chapstick like i did on the other turnbuckles . I have extras and got one threaded on to a Lunsford titanium version of TKR9123 .
Its my first kit build , i thought maybe there’s a trick iam missing . 🙄🤔 i would appreciate any tips or tricks ! Thanks in advance ...

Greetings,

So for my DB48 kit, I first marked which rod ends were going where, and to what side of the turnbuckles. From there I was able to take a turnbuckle and mount it in my cordless Makita, and carefully thread all the ends.

I use silicone grease to lube the threads when doing this, and on slow RPM. You will need to flip the turnbuckle to get the right thread direction, as well as getting the right rotation direction selected on the driver.

Once that is done, then I power thread one side in with the driver, leaving me to only need to do the other side by hand. Went much smoother and the threads are straight in the rod ends.

Hope this helps.

i figured they didn’t mention the reverse threads like they did earlier in the instruction manual with the other pieces that these where the same direction 🙄 , live and learn i guess , such a great instruction book you would think they would be consistent with the details .... thanks for your help !!

Industry standard to have reverse threads on one side of each turnbuckle, also important to have all the reverse threads mounted on the same side of the vehicle to make tuning easier. Very important to break in the threads with a drill like this:

I highly recommend you review all the build tips here:

I have more build tips on this thread here which are universal for the buggy:

Yeah,

Tekno notes in the instructions to have the small groove in the turnbuckle hex always on the left side of the setup. This allows you to know which direction to turn the wrench when adjusting the distance between to rod ends.

Because I'm a super nerd, I actually read the instructions completely before I open the first bag, and highlight things that I either didn't know already or that are unique to the product. That section I had made a few notes on as well. It was my first Tekno build.

There are a few very minor nits I would change to their instructions, but overall they did a very good job. Things like turnbuckle assembly is just something you learn the first time and then you know how to handle all turnbuckles in the future; the revers threads is a design necessity to make them work. It's all just a learning curve everyone goes through.

Also, keep a silver sharpie handy; I use it to make small marks on parts during assembly, such as "L" or "R", just so I don't get them switched up. The sharpie comes off with a bit of solvent after you're done.

how do you know which side of the setup is left ? do you determine that by looking at the buggy from the front or with it in front of you looking forward from behind the rear wing ?

Have you seen my build guide? Many of your questions have been covered in the videos. You may find it useful.....
I also cover electronics......
https://www.teknoforums.com/threads/tekno-eb48-2-0-complete-video-build-guide.1658/

I also didn't need to use any drill to break in the threads for the turnbuckles. A tiny bit of grease on the threads, then used the Tekno wrench to hold the rod end while you push the turnbuckle in and turn. As soon as you feel it bite you can use a turnbuckle wrench to easily screw the rest of the turnbuckle in. I found it quite easy to do this way.

I cover the process I used in Bag F of the above video guide.
