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!

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.

This is the last body I was using (I never put the number plate on)


Ive made other changes to the truck besides the body, but it seemed like whatever diff fluid, tires, pills, etc I tried the truck handled terrible with the body in the last picture...Could the body play that much of a roll ?
SC bodies play a huge role in how they handle. Best way to confirm is back to back testing.

+1 big diff. The whole nissan titan body really helped with the rear end planting.

what would you change on this setup for carpet? Using the really high bite on right now, or I should say, will try it:

As for the different roll center hubs, would it be possible to do a hub that has a insert that allows you to adjust the pin height similar to say the Associated B6 hub?

No plans for that. It's a little more work to swap out the whole hub versus just an insert but it's a pretty quick adjustment to make.

Hi Cain,
You might be talking about an EB48.3 setup. Those have been developed for dirt. I personally dont have experience with carpet but would recommend using heavier springs and swaybars beyond that would roll center and camber link changes. Most likely moving the camber links down on the tower.

Will pass along the idea for the hubs.

Matt, tapers up or down on the shock pistons?

I have some time off next week and will try your suggested set-up and report back.

Thanks

And, can someone give me a best guess for the shock oil using Associated vs the PT that is listed in the set-up sheet. The PT website compares their product to Losi oil, and then I compared the Losi to the Associated. Below is what I am coming up with.
Cliff

PT 450 front = Associated 35
PT 300 rear = Associated 27.5

Did a little home work reading about the PT oils and looks like it is a 5-star product. I may have to order some in the future... for now, I have Associated to use.

Taper down. Curious what you think. I've had great success with that setup.

Before being sponsored by Proline, Jeremy McGuigan swore by the Jconcepts Ford F250 Super duty XLT supercab
It's the only body I know of that has as large of a built in wing as significant as it is and he said it really kept the rear down as well.
