Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

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

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

-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.

Interesting about the bladders not staying put. I wonder if over tightening the caps could cause this. I no longer crank mine down that much. As tight as I can with my hand, then just a little twist more with an adjustable wrench. Like a 16th of a turn, otherwise the cap strips.

Can anyone recommend a setup station that would work for a 10th scale short course truck , 8th scale buggy and 10th scale touring car? or do these have to all be bought separately.

Looking for a Chassis protector, is the chassis on the 410.3 the same as the 410.2?

The shape and hole pattern of all the current chassis are the same, or very close, I think the droop pads might be the only difference.

I've read about some alternative to the Techno shock boots which are $10 a set. I remember a certain type of balloon. Can anyone point me to what worked for them. I just don't want to throw away $10 to something that will tear apart in weeks.

I'm personally trying at the moment modeling ballon (2inch diameter ones). So far they seem good. They tend not to go back down by themselves after an afternoon of runs. I may try something like a fuel pipeline cut as a ring to hold it at the bottom.
I'm testing them as the moment as I can buy 100's for 10$ or less here (+ you choose whatever color you fancy). At this price even if they only last a couple of race days they'll be very economical.

Qualatex 350q Onyx Black balloons, you can get them cheap on Amazon. 20x$5, 100x$14-16, or you can get any of the other 15+ colors....

Yeah that's what I'm going to try as well. Thanks.

well I decided to make another go of it with Tekno to keep things on the up and up with having a supported race vehicle that if I decide to expand with my kids we can share parts, etc.

Anyway, are there any carpet setups out there you guys recommend? This would be high traction carpet, with a tad bit of bumpiness to it in my opinion.

Do Xray springs work on tekno shocks?

For spare shock towers, is it worth it just having a set of the stockers in the box or should I got CNC towers? (will be coming with the graphite ones)

For the whole hingepin blocks, is there an advantage to the C block in plastic or do all the settings in general the C block in aluminum offers are sufficient for a variety of conditions (say carpet to loose dirt)

Cain check out the last setup sheet on the tekno site for astroturf. I use that as my starting point for carpet and I am pretty happy with it. Just have to work on the traction rolling mostly. Tires and ride height. Note the cut springs.

My son and I will be racing our new 410's on carpet as well so I checked out that sheet. On the shock setup where it says brand does he mean oil brand or are they running TLR shocks?

Also, the camber.....-4 on the front man thats a lot but I suppose that's to keep the front from grabbing and causing traction rolling.
