Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as Toy Propellant Devices and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Services Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction


Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

For all buggy kits, the Losi 8E body (LOSA8097) is a great fit, allowing plenty of clearance and a tight fit around the narrower chassis. The ProLine Slipstream for the Losi 8E also works really well. We recommend using velcro and ditching the rear body mount for buggies.

For all truggy kits, all bodies made for their respective chassis will fit.

Tekno RC brought you the first 'electric specific' 1/8th chassis, the first 1/8th slipper system, and the strongest most secure motor mounting system.

The V4 kit represents the new state of the art in 1/8th Electric Offroad. With 50/50 L/R balance and 50/50 F/R balance, no other platform comes close. Throw the lowest overall CG available into the mix and you have a package that outperforms the rest of the market. This translates to a car that is more consistent, uses less power, and is easier to drive faster.

All New Chassis Layout:
To start, the center differential was moved towards the rear of the vehicle to make better use of the space available on the chassis. As a result, the battery is tucked as close to center, as far forward, and as low as possible. This allowed the driveline to be straightened for most of the popular platforms providing better efficiency, higher durability, and less heat. The motor is turned around and moved forward for better steering response while balancing perfectly with the battery L/R and F/R. Lighter components such as the ESC and optional brake servo are placed low and towards the rear.

Power Delivery Options:
No other platform on the market provides as many useful power delivery options (pinions, Traktion Drive, Elektri-Clutch, clutch bells, and shoes are sold separately)

* Direct Drive (standard pinion) + Motor Brakes
* Direct Drive (long shank pinion) + Motor Brakes (moves the motor forward for better steering response)
* Direct Drive (long shank pinion) + Mechanical Brakes
* Traktion Drive + Motor Brakes
* Traktion Drive + Mechanical Brakes
* Elektri-Clutch + Mechanical Brakes

New Radio Box, ESC Tray, and Transponder Mount:
The V4 radio box is a very versatile little box. Plenty of room for today's most popular RX's and a modular design allow it to be used on both V3 and V4 chassis, as well as DIY projects requiring a compact RX box. It can be mounted on any V3 chassis where the mechanical brake servo would normally be mounted. On the V4 chassis, it can be mounted along side the steering servo in front or in back where the mechanical brake servo would go - it's your choice. An integrated antenna mount completes the RX box package.

The new ESC Tray is lighter and mounts lower to the chassis than V3. The softer plastic material safely cushions the ESC and sits a mere 7mm off the surface of the chassis.

A new transponder mount makes transponder placement an easy task. It's lightweight, versatile and durable.

Battery Tray:
The V4 buggy kits feature a new battery tray (142x52mm, ROAR spec). The tray is actually sunken into the chassis for even lower CG. The proven durable 3-strap system ensures your battery doesn't move during use. The tray is secured with countersunk screws and has a compact footprint for those DIY projects.

The V4 truggy kits include a longer 165x52mm tray for use with bigger batteries that are better suited for truggy use. It is also sunken in to the chassis for lower CG and uses the same 3-strap system.

Kit includes:

* Hard Anodized CNC Machined 7075 Aluminum Chassis
* Black Anodized CNC Machined 6061 Aluminum Motor Mount (42mm, for Castle, Tekin)
* Hardened Steel Front and Rear Center Driveshafts (except Losi kits)
* Battery Tray
* Battery Straps
* RX Box
* ESC Tray
* Mud Guards
* Servo Mounts
* Transponder Mount
* Kyosho and Hot Bodies kits (TKR4505, TKR4502, TKR4507) include a CNC Machined Steering Brace.
* Truggy kits include rear chassis brace and longer battery tray.
