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.

I have finished the build, you can expect all the same great things Tekno is known for! The kit went together great, and the parts quality is superb. I am planning on running it with the bone stock setup tomorrow on a tight high traction clay track! I will report my findings.



I have put all the pictures with remarks on building the shocks in a story format on photobucket in the name of not photo bombing the whole page! Click the link, and scroll to the right. If you have any questions on how the build went, ask away!

Thanks to Tekno for a great kit, and true passion for the racing scene.

So in your opinion Matt do you believe if you are doing say a 4S 1/8 motor setup to upgrade to either the steel or aluminum pins? (sorry question is more EB48SL on regular buggy electronicc oriented)

To use the Lunsford SCT410 titanium turnbuckles (LNS2600) on the SCT410.3, you'd just need a set of the old SCT410 camber link rod ends (TKR5051) to use on the 5x50mm / 5x55mm front and rear camber links? Correct?

According to the manual, the pistons are part number TKR6008 which looks like the same as the original sct410.

Here is a link to the manual http://www.teknorc.com/tekno5/wp-con...structions.pdf

question on the setup sheet as shown in the manual.

Are the aluminum hingepin blocks the same as the composites as far as position settings or is there a difference on some? Reason I ask is that looking at the setup sheet, the "C" Block is listed as "-1" for the aluminum one?

For the stock setup, what kind of "conditions" is that considered for? If I recall correctly the stock setup for the V1 was considered for "smooth" tracks I think.

Would this one be worth running as is for rough loose 1/8 tracks or what should be changed right away setup wise?

I plan on ordering this kit. New to Tekno, somewhat new to the hobby (about a year). I have an SC10 FT and it's ok. I'm going to sell and move on to this beast. Many of the guys at my track have the current Tekno and they tend to beat up my SC10 a bit (lol). Few quick questions, although may be too soon yet, given this truck is just starting to ship. Thx

1) Budget friendly body suggestion?
2) Have a new Solar Servo D771 in the tool box (.08sec@7.4v 64g metal gear high speed). Any ideas if this would fit? If not any budget servos you guys recommend?
3) More of a general SC question, what servo horn do you guys use most often? 23t-25t?

Yes this is my understanding, I'll have to do some tests later to see how it works out.

The kit comes with the same pistons as before, normal plastic off of a sprue. Most of you guys probably have a Delrin piston collection by now though! If not, it is a worth while investment to get both the pistons you want, and the shock cartridges in Delrin!

I have the Alu set here with me, they appear to be the same from my examination, the aluminum one has no markings on it as would be typical from Tekno. The plastic on the stock blocks is really beefed up though, I will run the plastic until something goes catastrophically wrong (Which I think will need to happen to break these!)

For 1. I would say there is a body that was being discussed, It think from JConcepts that has like a "wing" built into its rear area, not the Nissan body though. I would probably give that one as it may help with any nose down effect isues.

For 3. it depends on your servo but I think 25T is pretty common.

Yes! The Jconcepts Ford F-250, now believe me when I tell you I'm not a ford guy, but that body is done really well. I've been trying to give myself an excuse to paint a 3rd body.

i personally like the evo bodies on the truck. someone mentioned that the evo body is meant for 2wd trucks, but i like the way it looks and fits so i roll with 'em. there's not really a whole lot budget wise you can do for a body, but paint up a shell yourself.
that solar a pretty nice servo spec wise. you MAY need an extension to get it to the rx box, but i don't see a reason why i shouldn't fit.
i'm currently using the tekno horn on my ds1015, but will be using the serpent horn when i switch to the radiopost green servo. they tekno horn fits well and looks great. either way, an aluminum horn will be your best bet and there should be a few choices on page 1.
