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.

600+ posts and nothing about how the truck performs on the track? Come on guys. How about some feedback for those of us sitting on the fence?

Mine just showed up today, but I don't have time to build it until at least next weekend. :\

One of the other guys at the track had one though, and while he's not expert level, he was slightly faster with it than his original (he ran a soft suspension setup on the original and stock on the .3). His comment was that it felt like the .3 was more planted. He broke the frontmost hinge pin holder though during a qual, so finished up the night with his original.

I'm going to build mine stock when I do it to see how the setup is, with the exception of aluminum hexes and aluminum diff cross pins. If I tune to a point that I can get with the old hinge pin holders, I'll put those aluminum ones on. Once I play with the hinge pin holder locations, then I'll likely switch to aluminum and put the composite ones on the previous truck.

Stock setup is amazing out of the box. I know it's hard to believe. But those guys really nailed it. Obviously you might wanna do something to customize it. But it's so close it's hard to believe.
Ps. All surfaces.

If the issues with anyone not winning races are related to the vehicle being driven, then the driver should probably upgrade. In other words, unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket, stick with what you have if you are winning.

What kind of videos are you looking for? Build videos or tips and tricks type stuff? In a lot cases, the manufacturer isn't the one putting out those types of videos. Sounds like the kit setup is the ticket at this point.

Thank you Hoese37!

Thats the part I was a bit concerned about as I recall the first one including the alloy hingepin brace due to durability issues.

Hopefully its just a one off situation and not something that becomes a trend.

Glad to hear though that in general the suspension package is more confident, looking forward to more reports in really loose "dirt" track conditions.

The local track owner has one of these, and he is doing great with it! You can tell it handles better. He moved up two spots with it.

First weekend running this truck. First of all it's very forgiving to a newer driver like me. I had to get the truck dialed in but once I did and addressed some bad driving from myself the truck really shined. My only gripe, and this is probably true for all Pro 4 trucks, is that dirt seems to get in the battery tray and the motor / esc area. I'll probably look into a secondary cover. I still finished my heats last but his isn't the fault of the truck, just my skill. I look forward to running this truck all summer and beyond.

One question:
"where should I put "screws that build the endpoint of steering are not mentioned but are in the bag"?
