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.

Sorry, I'm totally new to turf racing..lol..Turf track

Do you uses PL pins on front and rear or a Schumacher "Stagger Rib" style tire on the front with pin in the rear?

How and Why do you use electrical tape on the front tires?

For turf, I've ran the shumacher mini spikes, got about 7 or so race days out of them without any practice days.

I've ran the pin points for about 4 race days, and show minimal wear.

Cut the outside row of pins so tire is smooth. (All 4 corners) And then, squeezing the tire, use electrical tape, and go around the outside edge of the tire, just 1 width of the electrical tape. Pay attention to direction of wheel spin for the direction you wrap. This eliminated 99% of my traction rolls. Rarely happens now. Some say it's a bandaid for a bad setup, but it works, and all I change is ride height to hit turf, from my outdoor setup.

Another way to prevent traction roll on turf, is in turns, always be on power. When you just roll a turn, you won't be fast, or if you try to be fast, your rolling.

This is just my experience from limited turf racing. YMMV

Usually when my sct is traction rolling I take away some droop in the FR and RR. Do you remember your droop setting or did you try adjusting it?

What was your ride height the shock oil you were using?
I run the ions mainly as they were cheap to burn them out. however, I do have primes here on the daughters car.

For droop, my settings are the same as what Jesse Munn detailed. I left it there as in comparison to the other drivers who are fast it looked spot on. Ironically, one of the fast drivers actually runs a pretty high ride height and has like no traction roll issues, his vehicle is an odd one lol.

I also didn't want to mess with the droop as there are sections of the track that are bumpy and I felt this was a very close setup to being ideal.

The fastest guys at our track don't even use the droop screws.

It works !!!

Finally got to run the new set-up posted by Matt a few weeks ago and I have to say that it works great on our track. (large indoor / hard packed / high traction / bumpy).

What did I expect? My current set-up was working good and was not sure what would happen with making so many changes at one time... and surprising it felt a lot like my previous set-up with the difference being in the steering. A smoother control of how my truck goes in and comes out of a turn...

One change I made to the set-up. I went to a 2.5 rear sway bar.
Still running -20% steering expo and have my servo speed turned down 10% >old guy setting

I picked up a lap in the 10 minute main from 20 up to 21. Went from avg 29 sec laps to avg 28 second laps. (with a couple of 27's tossed in !!). Fast guys are posting 26 second laps... thats ok.... I was happy with my 3rd place last night.

Thanks Matt and Team Tekno for sharing the set-up.
Cliff

When you say your track is high traction, how would you compare it to say something like carpet or astroturf traction wise?

I have not run carpet or astro...

but I can say that running new m3 hole shots... I can lift the front wheels if not careful LOL, And my truck will do a 'stoppie' at the end of the straight without some smooth braking....

Here is a link to a you tube video from a few weeks ago... (B-main racers, they are running 30-31 second lap avg).

Nice track!

How did the vehicle feel on the rear end as on the vid sometimes it seems bouncy?

Did you do a comparison between how the 10 x 1.2mm pistons felt versus the 8 x 1.4s you made? If so, what were you thoughts on comparing the two?

As it sits for me I can make some 8 x 1.4s out of the stock pistons (seal and drill) but I am curious as I am running carpet if the 10 x 1.2s would be a better setup.

Thinking of putting the setup on my daughters car as much as possible and testing it that way

It's a fun track. It's the best layout they have done in a while. SCT's don't quad the jump in the front, but when you do the crowd sure likes it. I did it a few times back to back but most of the time I couldn't pull it off. haha
