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 eventually plan to get a Tekin Setup but for now this is what I have. I run this setup on 3s and I am wondering what you guys think a good pinion to start with is?

Thanks for any help!
That setup is fine if your bashing, 3s isn't allowed for racing though. If you plan to race, better choose a motor in teh 4000kv-5000kv range and run on 2s.

I'm not an expert on the SCT410.3 (or any of cars for that matter) I wouldn't even consider putting that castle system in your truck, I think it'll be a waste of time. I was a Castle fan and ran them for years but theres just way to many better options out there. Build the truck box set-up and save a lil money for the right system. take a look at the HW's, lota guys run em and since I've swapped out my Castle, I've been much smoother and more competitive.I bought mine with the SMC4500 and its a beast, I'm slowly getting her under control.

take a look here

Those are the aluminum diff pins. Some people have broken the plastic diff pins. That's why I recommended the alum diff pins. I never ran the plastic diff pins - I went straight to the aluminum.

The delrin inserts are smoother than the stock shock inserts. It's not a must. It does improve performance though.
When going to order the aluminum pins http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5149-...uires-tkr5150/

It says they require TKR 5150, do these come in the kit or do i need to order these with the pins.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll probably start with the 17t and go up or down from there.

The required gears are the ones in the kit. That note is there because the very very original release EB48 had a different set of pins and gears in them. Everything since has had this newer style (easy to tell because of the flat sections at the ends of the pins) and is all cross compatible.

Tkr5149a are the alum cross pins and you don't need anything else. You have the correct diff gears.

Default Motor Recommendations

I have a trackstar Shortcourse ESC im going to need a motor for.

Since I want to go cheaper then tekin for my first truck and the SMC is on back order. Im deciding between the hobbywing 4700 and Maclan 4200.

Which one would you guys get for a setup that I will be running inside on a 16ish lap time track along with a rather larger outdoor track every once and a while on the weekends.

Ill likely have it turned down so I dont fly off the track indoors but want to make sure i have enough for big straightaways when i run out doors.

I would probably go HW or wait for the SMC to come off of backorder.

The XR8 will handle up to 6S in an E-buggy or truggy, you'll be fine.

I run one. Works great. It is large and heavy though, which is exactly why I am getting the Hobbywing XR10 very soon.
As nearly always, regardless of what you run you should implement an extra cap pack to help knock out the voltage ripple that plagues low voltage setups running 2S.
