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:

TKR5542 Spindle Carriers - TKR5541B Spindles

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.

What shock pistons are the ticket on the 410's? I am sure this has been covered, but trying to set one up. CSI's , Fioroni's are pricey... but are they worth the coin?? I am at minimal going to use the CNC'd white tapered pistons. Would like to hear from some fast guys that have tested the different brands.....

Not many of us know what works best on the new truck yet. Its a safe bet to go with a variety of the Tekno CNC pistons and just test and tune.

That said, Ive tried a bunch of the 'fancy' pistons out there and haven't cared for most of them. Ive recently been trying the VRP pistons and they seem to be the best out of the bunch. Cheap too!

Default SCT410.1

So do most people here have the first version of the SCT410? If so, are you selling them as rollers and, if so, for what price?

I'm waiting for people to start running V3 and compare them to V1.

depends on condition and price. The big thing that helped with people selling V1s was the lack of vehicles out in the wild to buy and those who wanted a vehicle right away. You could still get a nice premium for the V1.

Once the V3s are out in the wild in force, you will probably see the market drop a lot for the v1. woudl still be an excellent vehicle though.

UPS delivered our kit this morning.

This is our first Tekno; looking forward to building it!

Might be a late night tonight...

Thanks for clarifying this. I decided to go with 5mm camber links and the old style larger rod ends for maximum durability.

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.
So to get to the 'box stock' setup ( 3 anti-squat / 2 toe ) using the aluminum C block, you'd use the 0 insert instead of the 1 ( 1 dot down )?

Is that correct?

we can change out the old pill adjustments, and remove the info about aluminum wheel hexes.

proline flowtek or jc f250. decisions decisions. leaning towards the flowtek since upgrade has a wrap and a 25% off sale. my last wrapped sct body is still going strong over 2 years later, i think the wrap is actually holding it together at this point..

Tower Hobbies is now saying "mid-may". On 4/15 it was "late April"

Sounds like it'll be several more weeks before there is decent stock.
