0 Music, hey guys rich here from the rcnetwork.com and the two week wait is finally over. This is my exclusive unboxing of the brand new techno et48 2.0. This, of course, is techno’s newest 1, 8 skill. Four wheel drive electric competition truckee. Now i want to thank techno for sending this over a bit early, so i could shoot the unboxing and get it built up for you guys on the day of the release. So look out for my builder view today as well. Now, if you’re new to techno the et48 2.0 is techno’s complete redesign of their electric trucky platform, much like the eb 48 2.0 that came out in 2020. techno released the original et48 way back in 2013 and then updated it to the et 48.3 in 2015.. To my knowledge, there was never an et 48.1 or 0.2, but please correct me if i’m wrong down in the comments section so that’s been about six years on the et 48.3 platform until now. What i really like about techno is that they don’t come up with a new rc every year, just to say that they did. They want to make significant improvements for the consumer to justify the new rc, which is where the et48 2.0 comes in, like its smaller brother, the eb48 2.0. The et gets many of the features trickled down like the wider chassis plate, much of the same arm geometry and changes and overall improvement in performance like all of techno’s rcs.
This is a kit that you’ll have to build yourself, but these are so easy to build. You also need to supply your own electronics wheels and tires for the build, but stay tuned for my ready to run video coming out here soon, which will go over the electronics. I chose how i painted the body the wheels and tires and some interesting options. I added to my build and anything else you may need to make this thing really go fast. Alright enough, talking, let’s crack into this thing, with everything spilled out of the box, let’s check out exactly what you get now. Techno does a really good job of organizing the build for you. You get two main bags right here. The early steps right here likely steps a through like h. This thing is a lot of heft to it, so you’re definitely building up your differentials, your front and rear clips and other bits and pieces as you build along. Then you move on to the next large bag, which is going to be all of your shocks. Your steering assembly and everything that gets mounted onto the chassis in the center portion of the rig, starting with the main first bag. We have bags a and b being all of the differentials inside the new et48 2.0 bag c is going to be the front differential and also that shock tower super thick 70 75 cnc’d shock tower on this rig. The infamous d bag is the rear bulkhead.
Also, the wing mount and you get a look at that nice. Gigantic rear shock tower once again, 7075 cnc’d aluminum baggie is just massive with the rear arms. These things are ginormous all pretty much solid throughout, like we’ve grown to love with techno vehicles and, of course, the c and d blocks machined aluminum. The g bag has the front arms, which actually has that kind of twist in the arm that we saw in the eb48 2.0. We also have the cnc’d a and b blocks nice sway bars are included with that kind of bearing assisted feature that we saw also in the eb. The f bag goes into the rear, clip with the rear hub carriers, the rear drive shafts, all the pills. The second big bag of parts starts with bag h and we’re, seeing those cnc machined caster blocks that we saw in the eb version last year, they’re ginormous, as well as the ebs, were beautiful, machined aluminum. On the flip side. Here we are seeing the cvds and everything else that makes up the front drive shaft system back eye goes into some of the steering rack, the acremen bar all the additional bearings that goes into that system. Almost the smallest bag in the kit is bag, j that has the top brace and, i believe, the front center brace as well back k, we’re, seeing the center drive shaft as well as some of the center differential features like the guard up here, and also one Of the mounts for the center differential bags, l and m are all of the shock parts so pretty much.
Each bag is two shocks everything all in one bag. Very nice now back in actually makes up most of the center portion of the chassis, with the side guards the radio box the receiver plate, and also that huge, wide strap for the battery. The final bag in the second group of large bags is bag, o smallest bag in the kit, and that does house some of the servo horns and other small bits and pieces to get. Your steering linkage set individual bags that were inside of the kit, starts with bag p, which is a white rear wing, all of the wheel, nuts and body clips and the wing mounting buttons. You get all the fluids that you need to build your brand new. Et48. 2.0, including thread lock, black grease, 20 000 and 10 000 differential weight, oil and 700 and 600 cst shock oil, and finally, you get two supplement bags for bag c and bag d. These are the redesigned bulkheads, which i believe is what kind of caused the slight delay in the release of this truckee. The new chassis for the et48 2.0 is large and in charge and has all of the bells and whistles you’d want on a premium chassis plate. 70: 75 aluminum heart anodized machined. The thing is beautiful, definitely seems a little bit thicker that’s what she said, then the old version at four millimeters and all of the cutouts on here just to lighten it up a little bit and also stiffen it as well.
The final bag in the kit is the owner’s manual, the decals and the window masks and, of course, techno does a great job on all of their owner’s manuals. They do a great job of not only illustrating the build, but also has great dialogue just to help you get through some of the tricky parts like building the shocks and building the differentials. Now, of course, the sticker sheet has some cool hidden items in there. Of course, for the body which we will cover next and also some new graphics right here, we’re seeing that are kind of like a distressed, techno logo, all right, let’s. Finally, talk about the elephant in the room, the body now there’s, actually two things that i really like about this body. The first thing on the side of the box. They showed this thing kind of as a side angle, really low, slung down, and this thing looks amazing. Now i think, with the right paint job and no offense to whoever painted techno’s box art. I think this thing can look pretty good and finally, the second main thing that i like about the body is: it reduces the amount of parachuting effect that traditional truggy bodies have now originally when techno was racing. This thing earlier this year they got a lot of skepticism on whether or not it was a legal body, and it truly is. It does include a small section for the actual headlights. So, yes, it is a legal truggy body and i think it brings it back to the roots of what an actual truck is.
Definitely has that truck cab has a truck bed, and i think we can make this thing. Look pretty cool. Well guys. I got a ton of work ahead of me not only building this thing, but also filming it as i go along, so i can show you guys how this thing all builds up, but stay tuned for my build review. That video will show you exactly how this thing builds up with everything included inside of the box. A couple days later, i will have a full build reveal. That’Ll, have this thing all ready to run? Electronics wheels, tires paint on the body, everything ready to hit the track or local bash spot, but i do pose a question to you guys.
