Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:
TKR6106 Orange 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.

Does your Order Status show
"ORDER NOW BEING PICKED AND PACKED IN WAREHOUSE/ORDER CAN NOT BE CANCELED"

I just noticed it a few days ago, but I had not even checked Order Status up till a few days ago when I heard of them shipping out from other company's.

I'm curious whats the downfall of using the new towers (6mm lower) with the current arms or vise versa with the new arms and old towers? Are they completely incompatable or just not recommended from a setup stand point.

Besides it being ROAR approved, is there any reason to go with the '540 can' Pro 4 4,600kv over the '550 can' Pro 4 HD 4,300kv?

Are the lengths the same but 4mm instead of 5mm?

I just got the following email from Tekno today, I preordered mine from Tower in late March.

It is impossible to tell if your order will be one of the ones that is filled. Tower Hobbies has pre-ordered a lot of SCT410.3 from us and we were only able to fill a small part of their order with our first shipment of kits. We received a partial shipment of kits from our factory in order to start getting the kits out in the market as fast as possible. Following shipments of kits will keep arriving until all orders are filled. Have patience and eventually your order will be filled. This should not take more than three weeks.

tower can be funny how they fill pre-orders too. Last go around with the new released SCT410s I saw several people get there orders filled who ordered a week or two after me get there's filled.

The advantage of tower is if you don't need it right now, you can save a lot.
