This new body was specially designed for 1/8 electric buggy Tekno V4 conversions and will allow enough clearance for tall LiPos and larger sized ESCs. Checks out the press release below for all the info:
FTW Racing Components today introduced Exabyte, the only purpose-built body for the Tekno V4 conversions. Sleek styling belies Exabyte’s spacious interior, with clearance for 50mm tall LiPos and large ESCs. Intakes direct cool air toward the ESC while the rear of the body is open to evacuate hot air. For optimum fit, Exabyte is available in two versions to fit the body mounts of the most popular Tekno conversions—the Mugen MBX6 and the Hot Bodies D8. Both fit all Tekno V4 conversions when secured by Velcro in lieu of the body mounts.
“Considering the popularity of the Tekno conversions this is long overdue,” said FTW co-founder John Riewe about the Exabyte. “No longer will an ill-fitting body designed for another marque have to suffice.” In discussing the design process for the body, co-founder Joshua Riewe explained that “designing around a big LiPo and ESC is a challenge, especially if the goal is to create a design that is functional yet is simultaneously an expression of the creative styling trademark of FTW. We believe we have achieved that goal.”
Exabyte for Tekno V4/MBX6 and Tekno V4/D8 are molded from clear .040” polycarbonate and come in clear with a protective film and molded cut lines. Window masks and decal sheets are included.
