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

-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.

the dog in the video is awesome. My dog would want to be a part of the race, or at least chase them down.

I run the dynamic 3700 10L and depending on track I am 16-18. anything under 15 and it over revs on medium to large track.

I think you can order them from Proline with the body as extended body mounts. I have just ordered this body and the mounts. One wicked flamed paint job coming up!

Have any of you guys raced these trucks on astro turf? The only track within 2 hrs of me is all they run. Just looking for some tips or suggestions on how to set it up.

Thanks

Ive never raced but i fooled around on the astro turf track and the truck traction rolled a lot (with proline pin point tires, which do hook up really good). I need to get shorter front springs.

Decrease your droop and ride height.

I have only raced on astro or carpet and race mostly out of the box setup. As said above reduce the droop and on smooth carpet run droop horizontal. My truck is dialled on bumpy astro and I TQ and win most days. I am no superstar driver either. Tyres are Schumacher yellow mini pins with rears untouched but fronts with 2 or 3 rows trimmed from the outside and 1 row from the inside

On very smooth carpet on mini pins the truck was run with the front shocks std but rear laid down more. Run as low as you can get it and the truck is awesome. My truck won the last round of the UK Nationals (in someone else's hands) with this setup. We did trim 50% of the pins off the front tyres 25% inside and 25% outside and one row of the rears on the outside to help tame the grip roll.

Howdy fellas. Had a first version SCT410. Really liked it. Got caught up in work and family things and didn't get to the track for a while so sold almost all of my stuff. Looking like I'll be back to racing around spring . I think Santa might be bringing me a 410.3. I'm working on reading this thread in it's entirety and noticing (at least up to page 80 or so) that the common issue is with the kit suspension, particularly the rear. I'll be racing on medium grip indoor clay, smooth/slightly bumpy, with fair share of smaller/medium jumps (no huge air). Anyone have a decent suspension (pistons, springs, oils) setup that they're liking? Been seeing green f/pink r or pink/pink suggested often. Obviously not expecting dialed but would like to get th bits and pieces to build it with the first time to be in a better ballpark than stock. Have a Viper VTX8 esc and likely going to go with a Hobbywing 4000/18 pinion to start. Hot tires M4 Electrons where I plan on running if that helps. Thanks gents. Always liked the Tekno drivers for tips and such

Lots of things to do. Lower ride height, higher diffs, thicker swaybars. Tires: trim outer edges of pins.

Try this one:

Use the Jeremy McGuigan pill & link set up on Teknos website. Start at 26mm ride height. Go with Pink Front springs & Green Rears. Try 35 front 37.5 rear AE oil. Or Losi oil would be 37.5 front, 40 rear. And get the 6x1.5 pistons.
