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!

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.

[QtUOTE=King DORK;14379554]Lol. I had a Copperhead system (louder than most) in an Axial EXO buggy which has a very loud drivetrain. Thing was hilarious running down the street. Sounded similar to a kid putting playing cards in the spokes of his bike rims. Motor was actually very ballsy and plenty fast in the EXO, which was a heavy pig.[/QUOTE]

Default center drive shaft

Anyone aware of the physical differences between these two drive shafts? Clearly one is for the lighter SC and light buggy and the others for the 4S powered chassis. Wondering if it's just weight and durability.

The buggy/truggy models have bigger pins that wouldn't fit into the truck input/output shafts. I tried it by mistake.

SCT410/410.3 and EB48SL all share the same driveline with the same size outdrives, The EB48/48.2/48.3/ET48 and ET48.3 all share the larger outdrives so larger pins as said above.

Midway through the build at the servo install part. I'm using an Airtronics 94915 servo and it will not fit in the plastic sleeve provided. I've been trying to file down the walls of the stock opening provided in TKR5511 Radio Tray / Mud Guard however its taking forever..

Is there a quick way to make the 94915 Servo fit? This is not any bigger than the full size servo's I've used in the past but it is a lot bigger than some of the Savox and Hitec servos I've used. Thanks!

i just dremeled the back side wall out to fit a heavy duty futaba servo in there. it doesnt need it to hold servo strong.
After replacing the cheapy A block,the car has been much more durable,I removed the center brace and bent the front alum driveshaft in a crash that cart wheeled it. to bad the above HD one wont work in the SL model

...so did i...
the Sanwa servo was not just 0,5mm to thick, but 1mm to high also. I had to mill out the chassis, too.

Had to shave some on the side plate myself to get the Futaba HV-9352 to fit as well. This is going to be a part that needs revised on Tekno's future models.
You can see the swell bow still there between the servo and ESC.

That was probably my girlfriend and I! We both run those 66 Ford shells and love em! They have a definitive presence about them and just look way cool making hot laps around the tracks!

Anyhow looks good man! You'll end up owning more than one before it's over with, once you drive it a little bit you'll start to like the way it handles!

Anyone know of a good place to get a good quality pre painted body? I'd like a truck body as I purchased the mounts for it but honestly I'd settle for an SCT body if the price was right. I'm not looking to spent another $90 on a body I'm only going to beat up in a month or so.

Diggin' it. I might have to do this with my old classic colors at some point, though they were always 1 color jobs, so to put them together, black with blue flame.
