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 use the buku purple loctite on those small grub screws. Still holds them in, but lets u loosen them with less risk of stripping the head.

I've decided to build one of these kits. It will be my first build, I'm looking at tower hobbies and what they suggest, I need a servo suggestion and anything else I might need. Here's what I have so far

Tekin Pro4 Heavy-Duty Brushless 2S 4300kV Motor-$136

Tekin 1/8 RX8 Gen2 Brushless Sensored/Sensorless ESC-$189

Any other motors or Esc's that might be cheaper ?

the hobbywin sct pro esc and the hobbywing xeron 3656 4000kv is an excellent option

Just don't cheap out on the servo. It's a heavy kit.

+1 on HW SCT Pro and 4000 KV.

The Savox 2274 is awesome and fast too.
I'm currently using a Savox 1268SG and its plenty for me.

I recommend running a Glitch Buster Capacitor in your empty receiver slot as well!

the weakness of sct pro is the bec. therefore, you need to use an external bec to benefit more from servo like sg2274 which will increase the cost. if you wanna go for cheaper option compared to pro4hd rx8 combo. buy the rx8 from tower with 40 dollars discount coupon from 170 dollars and buy an hw 4000kv motor or smc 4500kv motor.

I've been running the savox 1256th for almost two years and its been flawless. As for electronics...I'm not sold on hobbyking stuff yet. I have it in my eb48.3 and so far it's been ok. Not many runs on it yet though. On the other hand my tekin stuff has been ran hard with no issues.

Thanks for all your help so far. I ordered the kit along with the
Hobbywing SCT ESC/Motor Combo.... Is there a limit to battery size with this motor/esc ? Pinion gear suggestions ?

As said above 7000mah+, I usually run 18T with Hobbywing 4000.
