Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

7.26.17 - BB
In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:
TKR6106 Orange LF Springs
TKR6114 Green LF Springs
TKR6018 composite shock caps (built to emulsion) OR TKR8072 Aluminum Emulsion Shock caps
TKR8027 Shock Stand Offs
TKR6051 8x1.3 pistons(drilled to 1.4mm)
TKR8104 .4 bellcranks
TKR8100 .4 ackerman
TKR5545B HRC Hubs
You also need the Aluminum C Block (others can stay composite)

What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

TKR5161 V2 Adjustable Hinge Pin Brace A block, 7075 CNC, EB/NB/ET/NT/SCT) - Helps to improve durability on hard crashes.

TKR5163 V2 Adjustable Hinge Pin Brace C block, 7075 CNC, EB/NB/ET/NT/SCT) - Helps to improve durability on hard crashes.

TKR5545B HRC Rear Hubs (L/R, CV or uni, SCT.3/SL) - Improves stability of the rear on mid to corner exit. Allows harder acceleration on corner exit.

TKR6146 - CNC Delrin Shock Cartridge Set

TiNi Shock Shafts
-TKR6004T (front)
-TKR6017T (rear)


What spare parts should I keep on hand?
TKR5020 Hinge Pins (inner, front/rear)
TKR5516 Front Suspension Arms and TKR5515 Rear Suspension Arms
TKR5542 Spindle Carriers - TKR5541B Spindles
TKR6009 Shock O-Ring and Bladder Set (for 2 shocks)

Tips and Tricks

List of Vehicle Setup Adjustments and Build Tips can be found here. There are several videos and articles detailing the building of shocks, diffs, camber links, etc.

Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here. Please be sure to try our recommended setup. It works very well on most tracks.

Warranty Policy:
Tekno RC is the only company in the industry that will give 50% off of parts if returned to them using the General Warranty return policy found on their website. The parts can be lightly used or completely abused, as long as the part is still being produced it's covered!

Piston Drills:
Some of our setups recommend using pistons that are enlarged. For instance 4x1.9 or 3x2.0. To drill the pistons we recommend the following:
GMK Supply Piston Drill Set
16PC Metric Bit Set Metric Sizes 2.00 to 3.00 MM.

A few op the part numbers may have changed. All you really need are the stub axles, hexes, wing and body mounts, front bumper, and front and rear bearing carriers.

This is the official list from the original 410 to the SL.
http://www.teknorc.com/tekno5/wp-con...LPartsList.pdf

Items you will NEED to convert an SCT410.3 to an EB48SL current kit version will be:
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5166-...ised-ebnbetnt/
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5181-...b48nb48eb48sl/
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5245-...40-lexan-eb48/
2x http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5570-...gy-width-2pcs/
and a wing (linking white, but pick any):
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5037-wing-white/

You will also want to either clip your existing SCT side pods or replace them with:
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5011-...rd-right-side/
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5010-...ard-left-side/

There may be a couple screws that aren't perfect length, as I haven't done the conversion in a while, but those are the major bits in linked form to make loading up a cart easy.

Option parts worth looking at for both vehicles are the AL v2 hinge pin holders, specifically the "C" block as it allows for lower pill locations, and the "A" block as it takes the most abuse, and of course the AL servo horn as the only real required upgrade for all the Tekno vehicles if you don't already have one.

What upgrades do you guys highly recommend I get for my new .3?
Cost isn't an issue, so I am interested in getting all the goods upfront rather than later so I can install then right off the bat.
For electronics so far I have decided on getting the RX8 ESC primarily for it's customization ability, with things like curve and BEC settings over many others that don't offer these things. I already have a Futaba 9352HV servo and it likes an external BEC generally if the ESC can't offer enough current. Not sure about the motor quite yet.
I was told that metal hinge braces are a good first thing also?

Hinge pin brace Front/Rear and aluminum servo horn. For the rest parts are durable.I've been running four months my truck nothing broke. This SC truck is a tank.

There's basically 3 motors I would consider, assuming 2s running, all of which I've run and been happy with.
Tekin Pro 4 HD 4300kv http://www.teamtekin.com/pro4-hd.html
SMC 4 pole 4500kv http://www.smc-racing.net/index.php?...product_id=264
HobbyWing Xerun 4700kv http://www.hobbywingdirect.com/products/xrm3656sd

The RX8 Gen2 has a pretty good built in bec that I've never needed more than (not even a glitch buster), even running some fairly power hungry HV servos. An external bec can still be stronger, but is unlikely to be needed.

I like the AL hinge pin braces on stuff myself, and also on the SC like the carbon fiber shock towers.

Does anyone know the weight difference between the stock aluminum and Carbon fiber shock towers?

Thanks,

The SMC and Hobbywing where on my list to consider, so I am glad to see those two mentioned again. I have run the hobbywing 4700 before with an SCTE 2.0 and it really moves along. Seems to stay nice and cool compared to a few pro4 motors I have seen. But that could be gearing and other various issues from chassis to chassis, driver to driver. I have not owned one personally, but am concerned about the possibility of heat issues more than I might normally due to the heavier weight of the tekno and higher cost of the Tekin it's self.

The SMC motor was recommended by another local driver the other day who had a lot of good to say about it from those he has seen with it installed.

I already have a Hot bodies servo horn I think will fit? HBS67169
I will go ahead and order the hinge braces.

Has there been any diff issues to consider?
The SCTE has some things that needed addressing in order to make them last reliably, but it was cheap fixes.

Ublock is what I use. Read an article about it suggesting it uses less resources than many of the others. It has yet to fail me. The best thing about these ad or popup blocker extensions is when you watch youtube without the annoying commercials anymore!

Yep it sure will ☺



Motor wise I use the SMC 4500 (with a SCT Pro) and it works really well. I also have aluminum A, B, C and D blocks.

I also recommend the original aluminum clamping hexes. The new lightened version with the grub screw that comes on the .3 have broken for me. The grub screws worked loose for me one race and the hexes stuck inside the hub. I went to snug that grub screw back down and both rear hexes cracked at the grub screw :-(

You absolutely have to barely barely barely snug the grub screw in the stock hexs. It's a poor design, or poor material used I should say. I've never seen such a fragile metal in my life. It almost seems like they're ceramic they're so delicate!

Clamping hexs are mandatory.
