Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:
TKR6106 Orange 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.

Edit: These wheels are actually not LOSI compatible, they are Associated compatible. I wonder if that's the problem? A fellow racer at the track hobby shop may have given me the wrong wheels. The part number 3352B is the LOSI SCTE wheel. Crap. Good thing I checked before I glued them.
That's probably the issue, they're not the SCTE wheel. Even though the AE wheel has that +3 offset which you would think would give more clearance, there's usually less because they have more webbing inside.

I had the same problem with some older Proline wheels. I picked up these hexes and then added about .5mm worth of shims just to be on the safe side.

Yes thanks, I also found that out in my research today. The Borrego is a disk looking but stronger, the Trinidad is a little cooler looking but not as strong from what I read.

Here are the DE Racing part numbers that I plan on using:
Borrego DER-SCB-LB (black, front and back)
Trinidad DER-SCT-LFB (black, front only)
Trinidad DER-SCT-LRB (black, back only)

Hi folks,

I've been following this forum for a bit and I'm a big fan of Tekno.
Just about to pull the trigger on a sct410.3 and would thought i'll ask for opinions about the electronics.

I'm planning to use it for casual racing at outdoor loose coarse dirt BMX tracks some the size of 1/8 and some 1/10th. It's mostly going to be fun with friends and no RC clubs so no requirements for ROAR legal electronics.



I'm leaning towards Hobbywing for the ESC + Motor. Should I be looking at 3400, 4000 or 4700 KV for these sort of tracks?
My budget is up to $200 for ESC & Motor and I'm open to other suggestions besides HW

Cheers!

Until the bearings go and you DNF due to a blown diff housing...The inferior engineering, and inferior plastics...Also won't take long to slop out...Yup, I'll stay away, thanks.

You don't want the ones that say front only...They're bearing wheels, not hex.

Yup, the 4000kv motor with a 18t pinion is nice...Or the 4700kv with a 16t pinion. Both should keep a smile on your face.

Thanks a lot I guess 4000 with 18t it is then!

Should I pair it with Hobbywing's 120A SCT-PRO or the newer 140A XR8 SCT PRO

I would suggest the newer sct pro, since it can now go up to 7.4v for BEC

So I have a 3000kv on 3s, and a 3500kv on 2s

What pinion should I try first for each of these,

LOL, is a 20t to much for the 3000kv?

I see 16-18 on the 4000-4700kv motors, wouldnt a lower Kv motor necessitate a larger pinion?

What SCT body do you guys run and are there any that arent roar legal not like I think I would be stopped at my local race track but its probably good to know.

Id like to get something a little unique like the Ford Bronco.

On the other hand I race outdoors alot so maybe getting a gimmicky body isnt the best so in addition which one would you guys recommends for jumping and racing performance.
