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.

Thumbs up Vented Bladder with aluminium cap

I recently got the "Full option" shock kit from Amain. The aluminium caps already got 2 wholes, one to the side for bleeding and one in the middle of the cap upwards to the pivot ball for vented bladder.

I'd prefer tekin, but they don't do waterproof.

Assuming it can fit, give the Mamba Monster X esc a look. It is waterproof and does sensored mode with the buying of the harness they sell.

As for motor, I would say look into the HW 3656SD 4000Kv motor. Its sized like a "545" motor, and ran really well on even a 1/10 esc I had in the past, a Speed Passion GT2.0 Pro. I feel it has good raceable grunt, but can be tuned down.

I think the big problem is that guys don't seem to understand that you can tune your punch levels to suit your driving skill.

At the same time, for people who are new who are running the class, they really need a better entry point than default mod.

Something like a spec motor on the cheap, say a 2500Kv motor limit on 2S could do the trick. Vehicles offer a lot in that they are highly durable, easy to drive since they are 4wd, just match the appropriate power to the skill level and you are golden.

That, or just turn your EPA down too can help wonders. But I still think there needs to be something more than just default mod for 4wd classes in general for 1/10 scales.

I'm a smoother/lighter throttle kind of guy myself so I try'd some softer combo's and even with a 550 2pole with the punch turned way up I was getting walked in certain sections and definitly didn't have the bottom end the other guys had. I found a good middle ground that works well for me which is the Hobbywing Xerun 4 pole 4000KV. My 550 2pole was super smooth and easy to drive but just didn't have the grunt I needed to run up front with the fast guys and didn't have that extra power needed when you come off a jump wrong with the nose down and trying to pull out of it..........it simply couldn't do it. Just my opinion on what I try'd as I'm sure the track layout and the guys that run there has a big impact on whats needed to compete.

+1 Dan. Matching the motor capacity with the truck is the key. 540 2pole motors are not designed to take the load a tekno puts on them because of weight, and will not be able to give you that low end grunt. Also, Tekno states in the manual to use a 4-pole 1/10th scale motor.

I compromised and went with a 4700kv 4 pole 3656 motor. Something between a 540 and 550. Also, I didn't know the Mamba Monster X was waterproof AND provided sensor motor support! That's a game changer!!!! I think I'll be selling the Tekin RX8 if the MMX does indeed fit.

I bought a used Tekno sct410.3 and now I need tires. Can anyone tell me if these rims will work without modification or do I need to buy more tires and wheels?

Panther tires on white wheels

Or

JC barcodes on black wheels

For some reason I can't post more than one picture per post, so here is the other tire option

Don't kid yourself, that motor is no compromise, it definitely is an a$$ kicker for sure! Have fun...

That's why I provided pictures, because I'm really not sure. The only tires I have on known wheels are electrons attached to DE Borrego SC rims. I'm not sure what the offset is on any of them.

That's no compromise....Most of the guys that kick my a$$ on a regular basis run that motor....I've tried it, in one of their trucks....I found it just too much for me.

The white wheels look like jconcepts hazard wheels. They will work. They may rub on the screw that holds the tie rod on. Mine did a bit and I dremeled the screw down just a little. The black wheels are losi 22sct wheels. Those will work with know issues

Thank you! Both sets of wheels were purchased for my TLR 22sct 2.0 but they didn't perform as well as the electrons on my clay track. I think they will be better suited to the sct410.3

Default Hinge pins

Have the hinge pins changed on the .3 cars? I never had any hinge pin bending issues on my first 410, but now I am on sct and nt. Havent run the nb and eb enough (1 and 2 races respectively). Just wondering what the deal is?

I have had 0 hingepin issues even with some pretty wicked crashes with both the 410.3 and eb48sl.

I've bent a couple on my EB and SCT. and one on my ET.
I do keep spares just in case. I usually end up crashing a fair bit so you never know.
