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!

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.

So cutting didn't help much for you?
The cutting helped tremendously... I mean I'm still a total newb but it was night and day different in how it ran after I hacked up the body. I'm not gonna lie, that think took a beating on my first day out. I was able to work that nose dive issue by keeping on the throttle after a jump as well...

I'll be heading out to the same track with tires made for clay and not the knobbys I had in there previously as well as thicker shock oil... just trying different setups..

What's your take on how this guy handles with the different size wheels?...I've been thinking of picking of some sct wheels to use with the stock 12mm but not sure if I want to spend the $50 or so just for a test...

The nose dive issue isn't an issue at all for those who have done these things.
It just blows my mind how many times these things have been said and are done by many pros who run the TEKNO, yet everyone that complains about these things generally don't do them. There is no secret about it. This truck is nose heavy and needs re-balanced to perform correctly on large jumps and rear end plant. The things I said takes care of this

Once I pick up a dremel I plan on cutting out the back part of the tray for the battery mod. Maybe someone at the track tomorrow will have one I can use after I see how it handles with what I've done with it so far...
I've done the other two already but have not done anything with the anti squat. Can you point me in the direction of how I do that and if I need anything that didn't come with the stock setup to do so?

*edit*. I just got the antisquat moved. Do still have a question for ya regarding placement of the rear holes. Right now I have them on the outer edges. What does bringing the rear inwards do and vice versa?

Just wondering, What do you do when somebody shows up with a Durango truck? Is it ok if trucks have 17mm hex's with SCT wheels? The Berrago wheels from DR look like buggy wheels but are SCT size- 2.2/3.0.

DO you know if those wheels have the correct offset to fit the Tekno?

Here's another video of my SCT410.3 from this wkd killing the Losis on indoor clay track. The truck has the esc mod and receiver box removed for better balance .
YES,I'm a little rough on the white/blue Losi....because he has been racing me that way for the last 3 races !!(really don't like racing that way)
Enjoy...

I believe the wheels has zero offset which is good but the conversion will make them too wide.

Too wide as in illegal for sanctioned racing?...

I'm just at a point of learning all the ins and outs of handling and adjustments... when I'm comfortable with that I'll possibly look into some type of official racing...

Btw Lowe's... I appreciate all I've read from you when going through this thread from the beginning...

Yes too wide for sanctioned races. You are welcome and enjoy testing and learning. Don't be afraid to try different setups.

Exactly what I'm doing.. run a battery... adjust something... rinse and repeat... each time I pick up something new and with all the knowledge around here and the interwebs it all makes more sense as things progress...

Do you run a 1:10th or 1:8th motor in your comps?.. I assume 2s as well?

Yes, they are the correct offset for Tekno if you get the SCTE model.

The hex isn't the issue. It's the rim profile and the type of tire that gets mounted on it. If they are 1/8th scale buggy tires and rims I don't let them run them in 4wd short course.

So the having 17mm hexes on the tekno is fine, if using the DE wheels with SCT tires then eh?
