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.

I have found that many people switch to the blacks up front once they do the battery back mod, for the reason you explained.
Jeremy McGuigan runs blacks on his for example.
Also uses green to oranges on the rear with 6 hole 1.5 inverted pistons.
I believe he runs roughly 35-40ish weight rear to front for those particular pistons with great success. Might want to give that setup a shot.

That track looks fun! Rough and rowdy like a lot of east coast tracks I have seen around.
Setups out this way are nothing like most of the west coast types because of it to.

Using static bench test ( No fluid in shock)

Green REAR is way slow with Black FRONT.

Yellow REAR is slightly slow with Black FRONT..

Orange REAR -- Test Next ! with Black Front

Im definitely getting some chassis slap in the rear with ESC mod . Black anodizing is worn.. back there..

I have thought about the testing static dry shock frequency for a while now, but I have not found any good results basing any of my setups from doing that personally, no matter how I went about it.

The problem is the fact we are dealing with internal volume and travel distances since the shocks are different lengths. The oil weight and piston type certainly effects the pack and travel speeds.
Also there are a considerable amount of other variables that sorta negate a 5050 frequency balance like some like to suggest as optimal.
Such as the fact the rear is going to get more constant forces against it under acceleration while the front end gets lighter. I feel like the best thing to do is setup from what is known to work and then tune to your preference from there.

Now if your just doing this to see the difference of rebound force, I guess I understand the reasoning.

Do you have a theory on what your doing with this test?

Weight distribution is very different now with esc mod . On smaller indoor clay tracks balance is not noticeable. When I went to outdoor larger tracks the rear hopping around became noticeable . So Pretty much matching up front and rear rebound . Then tune shock fluid from there. I'm going with Fred's suggestion before I start throwing darts.

Regarding my light .3 with ESC mod i use black springs in the front and grey ones in the back, all with 37,5 oil for astro outside. Pistons are VRP 6x1,5. Droop is reduced to prevent her from rolling over. On our rough outdoor clay this is to heavy, i reduce oil to 35 front and 32,5 back an give her more ride hight at the collars and droop screws.

Default Shock boots Upgrade

Yes, you can find them here: www.rbproducts.com:

Front: 0230110 Rubber boot 38mm (4)
Back: 0230332 Rubber boot 48mm (4)

These last a lot longer than the Tekno ones...
