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 notice a little residual oil that comes out afterwards... it was not leaking.

Only the nitros are set up to run the larger (higher tooth count) spur gears. They also use shims to raise the diff mounts to allow for it. I would've been surprised if you didn't have clearance issues running the larger spur on the SC.

Curious as to how stiff the lower arms on the front end should be, it seems stiff. Should it move freely or have some resistance? If the screws that I have shown in the last picture aren't very tight, it seems to free things up, shouldn't they be tight?

Most of the pivot press in balls on my truck were tight needed working in with a drill. As well as some hinge pins needing to be un snagged. Common practice..

Take a reamer to the arms. The bind after the limiting screws are put in.
A chainsaw round file is the same size, very effective and $1.00 locally. It is the 4mm size (or inch equivalent).

Looks like you have the spindle sleeves and the arm sleeves mixed up, 5554A and 5555A. The ones for the arms are longer.

I also ran into a problem with hinge pin inserts tkr5165 . When using a random hole insert location on one side of the hinge pin . I needed to end up using a insert on the other side of the arm that is pretty much in a straight line. Or it causes hinge pin to twist in the arm & get binding .

New build ? - ( Nose down advantage)
1. Anyone mess with cheating there esc back to further gain advantage over slamming it in the middle of mount?
2. Rather then cut rear of battery tray . Or purchase modified chassis . Maybe Just slot the tray and move entire tray back 10mm? Which I believe would lead to separating tray just behind battery & removing 10mm of mount for clearance ?? Hope i'm explaining right..

For anyone who remembers the issue I had the with the RX8 Gen 2...Tekin responded with a brand new ESC! (Tekin rocks!) While the seller (from this forum) never bothered to respond period...boo!!! I should be back in action now, but the local track seems to be winding down for the season.

Outdoor season is just gearing up. Wolcott in Waterbury Connecticut this weekend, and RCM in Enfield CT was just last weekend. Barnstormers in Chester NY was also last weekend.

My Activ8-V2 Novak ESC barely fits as it is. I don't think there is a big problem with forward weight. I've checked the weight distribution with a 2S-8000 battery and the heavy Novak ESC and my 76gram servo its 50/50 weight distribution.

At first, this seemed nose heavy but then I learned to work with it and I rarely land on the nose - only short super steep jumps that you have to take slowly because another set is coming, only those jumps present a slight issue because you can't correct it with throttle.

the benefits are huge, you can have a lot of rear grip, very heavy rear diff fluid yet still get excellent turn in. 50/50 weight distribution is the goal.. and this truck gets it right.

The problem im running into is ,, I went with a 3S set up & Im having problems finding Quality lipos that fit . Wanted to stay in the 5300mah - 5800mah range. Soft packs MAH are perfect. But the soft pack is to long to fit tray. Also, people are in my ear that im going to puncture. Which I find hard to believe. Hard case is limited to 5000mah or upper 6000mah +.
