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 .3 buggies use the truggy size shocks now, so they probably aren't compatible.

Unfortunately, the buggy shock towers changes the truck geometry vs the 410.3 shock towers.

I'm having an issue with my servo horn and linkage.

I have the single hole 25T Tekno Horn, if I gap my servo linkage to 1mm like instructions say, I cannot get the linkage to be parallel like the manual says to? Page 22 of the manual. I end up having to gap it like 3mm, is this ok?

Also I had to remove the 2 washers above the ball end so my wheels would clear, do I need to remove any other washers to compensate for this?

Also, how are you guys running your antennas, I notice a lot of short tubes, where can I find one? The one that comes in the kit sucks.

I've also read were some people just wrap them and keep them inside the receiver box?

Thank you

I wouldn't worry about the servo horn linkage. Just do what you need to do to make it work.

Oh, and as for the antenna, I don't run one. Not really a need for it with today's 2.4 technology.

I run antennaless receivers so I don't use them but what do you mean about "The one that comes is the kit sucks" ? Cause its long? Just cut it to the length you need. And yes you can wrap most of them and still be ok for most situations if you decide to go that route.

It doesn't fit tight in its mounting hole, it's like the hole is a little too big for the antenna tube. I was going to cut it to about 3-4"

Who makes a antenna less receiver?

That is good to know that it can just be wrapped

This had me too, see how there is 2 holes where the antenna tube goes? 1 is for the tube and the other is for the little grub screw that hopefully you didn't throw away. It tightens the tube right up and it won't go anywhere.
Oh and I just rap the antenna up in the receiver box now with no side effects on coverage.

I was trying to transfer a picture of my steering link, but I'm having problems. Anyway, I would say as long as the line drawn between the screws on the servo horn are pretty close to parallel to the line drawn between the screws on the servo saver, u r good to go. I just do that visually...i don't actually measure.

I use a button head screw on my steering linkage at the wheels. You get a little more clearance that way. Removing washers won't hurt. It's just there for storage until u need it to change bump steering.

I run a shorter antenna. I cut the antenna tubing to the length I want. Only the very end of my antenna is in the tube. The rest is rolled up in the box.

Right on, thanks, I am using button head screws but I still needed to remove the upper washers. Rolling the antenna up in the box sounds like the way to go

LOL, I don't know if I can find that screw

The manual doesn't say anyrthing about that screw or antenna mounting,
But the NB48.3 shows what you are talking about. I might have a extra set screw.

Futaba makes antennaless, not sure about the other makers.

I cut the antenna tube the length that the antenna stick out of the box then use a heat gun and put a 90 degree bend in it so it's well under the body.
