Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:

TKR8104 .4 bellcranks

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.

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

TKR5542 Spindle Carriers - TKR5541B Spindles

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.

Lowes was just trying to help you Mr. AVC racer, what are u 12? You sure seem like a goof.

Back on the 410.3, wheels wise I really like the DE speedline plus with 0 offset, awesome wheels that fit and hold up great. Everyone is right that no one setup is going to fit everyone's style/track, sometimes they will get you close with minor changes though. I try to listen and learn from the guys on here and at the track that know what there talking about and I also try to learn things on my own......the tuning and learning setups is another fun part of the hobby to me.

I agree with you. The zero offset DE speedline are my favorite as well due to the fact that they are the stiffest and more consistent than other brands.I found in many tests that your set ups will have to be reconsider if you switch wheels or even tires/foam.

Gentlemen, appreciate the advice. My first SCTE wheels were 0 offset and rubbed the inside A-arm at full turn. My second set of DE's (Trinidads) are +3mm offset and don't rub the A-arm --but they seem really tight relative to the CVA assembly (I can only get a single sheet of paper through the gap between the set screw on the arm and the inside of the wheel.)

So, I'll try the J-Concept Hazard SCTE wheel with a Proline Trencher for our carpet races -- will a 0 offset fit without rubbing the A-arm at full turn? ROAR rules doen't apply to the racing we do.


Thanks,

Steve

If you guys want to run the wider offset wheels and keep it within the body width you can always run the front and rear pills on the inner locations. Don't know what effect it will have on the handling, narrow pivot and wider offset, but it's something to look at. It won't fully offset the different wheels if they are 3mm per side though. I think the narrow pivot will change 1.5mm per side.

I'm considering picking one of these bad boys up. I'm wondering if there are any must upgrades? Ive heard to get the carbon towers and aluminum suspension holders, those are a must?

Carbon towers are nice but not a "must" in my opinion, I haven't hurt a stock tower yet BUT I'm sure it can and does happen. The alum blocks are nice, I built my kits with alum A and D blocks and recently put in the alum C block to get a little less antisquat if needed. Alum servo horn and upgrade the wheel hex's is a good idea and I personally run all the CNC shock parts as I feel its money well spent. Truck is solid and performs VERY well.

if you have to run rear oil thicker than the front to make your car drive half way decent then your set ups are off. Just sayin. .....
But hey....do what you want!! Lol
My set up is way off eh? I got 3rd today out of a stacked field of 17 CORR Mod trucks.... all fast Teknos and 2 Losi. But 40/45 is too heavy to run with Green/Yellow springs right?

Pretty cool man! I am thinking about getting the adapters myself. Would like to know how the ARRMA Senton wheels fit. I think they are really nice looking, especially with some trick wheel nuts
