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 route I took was to find a pro's setup from the tekno site that kinda matched the tracks around here & order Mods based on that.

Very true...completely forgot about the alu servo horn.

I really like the newer version (two hole). It has a larger 3mm cap screw rather than 2mm - a pinch more robust and a good safe upgrade.

You could never make a living building rc's lol
I use regular Parma servo tape and never had an issue. Clean the mount and esc with simple green first and then make its dry. It will stay put

I use the Zeal tape as well. I clean the surfaces with alcohol so there is no residue. Some will use a zip tie loosely as a back up. But I have had good luck with the tape alone.

Replace it with the same size button head. Did the trick for me and a few of my friends.

Same thing happened to me.. I had to file down the cap screws to gain clearance.

As mentioned, replace with button head screw. If you're not using all of the washers (if they're under the screw head vs under the link), then you can also use a shorter screw. I typically do both.

This is from my truggy build, but the concepts are the same. Fast forward to the ESC tray portion (about 8:15). This will make life much better for your ESC, and the tape holding it.

Yep, watched that .. Sweet vid , SIR.

Also, rather then adhering one slab of 2 face tape/zeal to entire bot of esc. Im using a 1/2' piece in each corner to further reduce trauma..
