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.

Just ordered my Tekno SCT410.3. Will be here tomorrow.

Will post back with pictures, and I will start building as soon as UPS pulls up. Any tips, or recommendations?

Thanks everyone!

Think you could spoon-feed me on how to get 2 degrees antisquat and the stock toe? I've been trying to figure out that chart and it just doesn't jive.

Maybe 1 while you're at it?

Thanks,

But I appreciate the positive feedback
I wasn't trying to insult you, just figured you might not have understood how 2.4ghz reception works vs the old whip antennas that needed to be fully extended, hence the long antenna tubes.
And again no offense, but if you want positive feedback for what your doing, it has to make logical sense based on my experience.
"Speaking for myself" in this case, it doesn't.

I honestly don't care what you do with your stuff, and wouldn't have said anything about it at all. But I'd hate to see someone read the suggestion and think it's a good idea only to end up getting their antenna ripped out because they had it poked out much longer than it needed to be.
Same goes for those that bend the tip over the end of the tube and then put the end cap on it to secure it in place.
I have seen both accounts cause antennas to be ripped out, so any arguments are void as far as I am concerned.

While this might sound unlikely, it does happen.
One time it happened was because one vehicle broadsided another at the end of a long straight and completely jammed their chassis completely inside the other. That's all it takes.

Josh, I'm certainly aware of the evolution of transmitters/receivers/antenna length and what not. My antennas are only a few inches long anyway so they're by no means flopping around under the body. Either way, anyone reading either suggestion is free to do what they please. The Tekno has plenty of room under the body so do what you please. I read all of your posts and appreciate the knowledge you bring. You can discredit anything you want that doesn't make logical sense to you. No offense here big boy Have a nice day now.

Look at the very bottom of your setup sheet - the small row of block inserts along the very bottom.

The confusing part is that it shows a 9-square (3x3), but it really is a 25-square (5x5). Reference is 3degrees toe and 3 degrees anti-squat for center hole/center hole. From there it's 1/2 degree increments. I'll try to post a pdf from images gathered from the first page of this thread I think and some verbage I put on them to make it easier to understand.

Try something in the middle of what you want.
Use the .5 degree down "two dot insert" (center/bottom) on the C block, with a 1 degree "one dot" top center on the D block.
This will give you 1.5 degrees antisquat, while maintaining 3 degrees toe in.

Fair enough. I can't really recall who knows what on these forums, so I often just assume things by the way a subject is worded.
Again I didn't mean to come off rude.
I probably sound a lot more blunt on here than I actually am getting to a point when I type.
I read in this last comment you're only using a few inches, but when you mentioned your considering bending the antenna tube into the shock tower a few post back, it came off as more than a few inches worth in my mind.
So you can probably see how I might have interpreted that the way I did. Anyhow anything I say is just an opinion, it's fine with me if you take or leave it. I appreciate your input in the group as well.

We're all friends on here Josh Thanks again for all of your input. I particularly value your knowledge in the area of shock/suspension tuning (along with everyone else's) and look forward to trying some things out. Have a good one!

I have a couple of questions :
1- What chassis braces are you guys running for indoor med bite and outdoor
2- I am having a problem with getting a 14 t pinion to work it will not get close enough to mesh with the stock spur.I have tried to move the motor mount around and that did not work Currently runnnig 16/44 and 4700 kv hobbywing motor thanks

I ran the 4700 Hobbywing in my "old" Tekno. 15-16 tooth on med bite med size indoor clay was the sweet spot. I'd be concerned with over revving going down to a 14.

Fully agree with what King said^

The 4700 is the only motor I run, and it likes a taller gear with zero timing.
15 is as low as you will ever need to go. I can run a 17t 40 spur in my SCTE 2.0 all day long. Still has loads of bottom end and the top speed is ridiculous.
If your going to beat me, your going to do it in the turns, cause on the straights I have a rocket ship!

My 4700 was ballistic. Medium track and a 15 tooth pinion and it never got above 135-140 degrees. Trying the 4000 Hobbywing this time with a 17/18 pinion. Has anyone tried the Durango aluminum opinions?

My self and most guys I know only run the front brace, hardly ever find I like it better with the middle or rear.

The 4000 is a great motor, super snappy and great top end. I find I like a 18T on it best for the most part.

I'm running the Team Durango 18 pinion with great results. The smallest aluminum ones start at 17.
To compare the weight of the pinion >>
solid 18 pinion - 14 grams
lighten Tekno 18 pinion - 10 grams
Team Durango (aluminum) 18 pinion - 3 grams

Rotating mass on the motor shaft?

Wow...that's huge.
