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 run the f-250 body on the old truck and it jumped nicely. I am drawing 1 up now for my new truck and will post pictures when I`m done, the truck gets here Tuesday.

You definitely don't need to upgrade right away. You should be fine for a whole season on the composites. If and when you do upgrade, the aluminum pins are the way to go.

To use the Lunsford kit you listed, yes, you would need the larger camber link rod ends that accept the 5mm threads. If you don't already have that Lunsford kit and want titanium links I'd suggest you pick up six 4x55mm links (LNS1455) or six 4x60mm links (LNS1460) so that you can run the new smaller/lighter rod ends.

The kit comes with the molded black pistons.

They are the 10x1.2 pistons. We looked into including the delrin pistons but it would have increased the cost of the kit.

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?
The aluminum C block and the plastic C block are different. The aluminum block puts the inserts 1mm lower than the plastic ones. The plastic C block did not have enough material to lower it as far as the aluminum version. However, the current plastic version is the same height as the older pill style C blocks so any antisquat or roll center position that you may have like can be exactly duplicated
I personally like the new aluminum C block because it allows 1 degree of antisquat with the D block in a LRC position (or HRC) or even 0 degrees of antisquat when the D block is in an HRC position. My driving style prefers very little antisquat.

I'm expecting my kit any day now and need to get some wheels and a pinion. This will be my first SCT so sorry if I am covering old ground but my searches did not turn up much.
I have a Pro 4 3300 motor. Any recommendations on a good starting point for a pinion gear? I will be running on a loose outdoor track. What is the gear pitch?
Also any recommendations on wheels?

Mine has arrived from Tower @ Reno
going box stock till approx mid summer then perhaps al c,d, blocks and split diff

Cain, been happy bashing with Vants 4000mah just got some more with higher c rate from barnfloor/dirtcheap as per 4 plug vs 2 in the end it is still going back into 2 at the esc so I don't think it can make a huge difference, but time will tell. Right now I only have the four plug in shorty for b5m. The 6500 75c,hard wired vants I just got with 10 awg wire seams very beefy hope to run in about a week

I expect mine on Thursday (thanks Pete). I will have my bench ready for assembly Wednesday night, so I can come home Thursday, and begin assembly. Can't wait!

How can you tell which tower its coming from?

Thanks for the info on the vants. Do you know where to get them hardwired in the 7600mah size? Promatch won't be back in stock for about a month it sounds like, so on the hunt.

Speaking of batteries, other than SMC who else makes a reasonably priced 7000mah+ lipo hardcase pack that is in stock? Can be bullets or hardwired.
