ET48 2.0 Build (Bag D-F)

Follow along as we give some insight on how to build the new ET48 2.0 kit with both photos and videos from Tyler Hooks. This article focuses on Bags D-F.

The ET48 2.0 kits are starting to ship so here is a little guide to building your own.

Bag D

Bag D is the rear bulkhead build for the ET48 2.0. The kit comes with the tall wing mount, a new rear center universal, and ring and pinion.

Clean the set screw and use loctite just like on Bag C.

Little bit of copper grease on the ring gear, didn’t have to use any shims in the rear.

The rear shock tower allows you to put the wing in 3 different locations, I chose the tallest location.

Bag E:

Time to install the arms on the rear of the ET48 2.0 as well as the sway bar setup.

make sure to remove any flashing from the inserts so they sit flat.

The arm inserts are so rad, the suspension is super free.

The sway bars are a little larger as you can see in the photos so they are specific for the truggy.

Bag F:

In bag F we finish the rear end completely with the CV’s, Hubs, and Turnbuckles.

On the buggies we typically run the hubs pretty low in the arms, on the truggy the hub is higher in the arms.

I use a white grease when I install the rod ends on the turnbuckles.

Complete rear end all ready to go!
