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.

most likely he means shock oil. Running PT Racing oil here shoudl be interesting to see what the conversion will be.

As for springs, I personally may give these Xrays I have here a try if they fit. Ran those on my DESC10 I had and they worked excellent for it on carpet and outdoors, and they are really short too.

Glad to see you back running Tekno Cain.

And yes, setup sheet meant TLR oils...Basically just go up 2k for ptrc oils...if TLR 553...then PT 775

yeah I figured either maintaining 2 custom vehicles if my daughter really likes RC or 2 vehicles that I know I can easily do that for.

To add to that, you also get some tower cash still at this time. I am hoping mine tekno comes in before it ends so anything else I need I'll just pick up.

From what you guys are seeing, how does PT Racing versus AE versus Losi compare for Diff fluid weights? I use AE mainly as they had more cst types available, and PT Racing for my shocks.

I use PT in everything. Makes it easier to compare apples to apples of what everyone else is running.

unfortunately the oil weights don't go high enough from what I am seeing on fierce rc solutions site so I end up keeping it at least in the family with AE oils for the diffs.

PT goes up to 25,000 on the diffs which should be sufficient for anything other than maybe center diffs on 4wd buggies.

I'm still getting holes punched in the centers of my shock bladders even after screwing the rod ends on all the way. I'm going to dremmel off the end of the rod where the nut goes to hold the disk on. Hope this does it. I depleted my local track's supply of bladders.

Thats very odd. I've owned 5 410 sct's .3 and original, eb's, et's, never had a hole poked in a bladder? There has to be something messed up in the way the shock is put together. Have you looked at the stack of orings and spacers in the lower shock body? I'd bet there is something wrong there.

Is it just fronts or rears?? If so maybe the shafts are in the wrong bodies (rear shafts in front bodies?)

You should not have to dremel anything.
