There are a few reasons we went wider. The first is to have more space on the chassis for electronics, specifically the ESC. The second is that we wanted to decouple the different parts of the car from each other on the chassis. With the previous design everything was as integrated as possible. For example, the battery tray was also the mudguard, the servo mount was attached the mudguard and the rx box. This caused the car to be not just stiff, but unevenly stiff. The new design allows a more even flex across the chassis which makes for a more predictable handling car. Both of these things forced the design to be wider. As a result we were also now getting a third benefit, a greater polar moment of inertia. Often our cars (the electric versions) have been described as "twitchy". This extra width helped to "slow" the car down in left to right transitions.Awesome thanks for the info!
Wonder why they went so much wider after all this time with ultra narrow chassis... the chassis on my et48 is so skinny...
Matt, I am impressed that you answer so many questions so thoroughly! Thanks for the great explanation.
The EB48 2.0 will be my third Tekno... the easy-change diffs were the last major feature I was missing, so looking forward to taking delivery of the new kit in a month or so when the next batch arrives.
Ah, Im in the UK so places to purchase and find parts etc are a little more limited here!Tower. Pretty solid discount with coupon (more so if you are a member, but pretty decent even for non-members). I order all my parts from Amain (selection, shipping speed) but full kits from Tower due to the coupon discounts, which are pretty sizable.
Where did you place your order?
Hey dude, which ESC is this?
I am using the Hobbywing XR8 plus. I did not shorten the sensor cable, I just used some short ones (I believe they were 80mm, which is roughly 3") that I had already. I prefer to keep things tidy as far as wiring goes. I don't like a bunch of stuff flopping around inside the cab.Hey dude, which ESC is this?
Did you shorten the sensor cable or is this the default shorter cable (4 inch?) included in the box?
ESC power switch is seated nicely!
Otherwise, the way you have run all wires is exactly how I envisioned doing mine.....
Brill. I have also ordered the XR8 Plus, although I was a little concerned about whether it would be a tight fit and whether the sensor cable would fit into the rear of the motor - You've just shown me exactly what I needed to know!I am using the Hobbywing XR8 plus.
