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.

Default 1. Attempt to race...

That was a very crapy weekend...

The Tekno (full stock) went very good, predictable and smooth. (had to rebuild one shock, the bladder cap was not in correct position and lost all oil). Until i hit a wooden corner and broke the "A" Block and the differential outdrive on the right side in a free practice session.
The car gave me a very easy and exact feeling, felt like beeing fast. But at the free practice session there was no time measurment, so i can΄t proove it.

Changing over to my old SC 10 4x4, i killed the controler by changing the poles...
Changed the contoler and the motor of the Tekno into the SC 10. Drove 2sec behind the field.
Races were on sunday, broke the servo saver 1. round of 1. Heat. 2. heat was ok, but slow. 3. Heat was wet, but faster and 4. - 6. heats were cancelled.
Finished 9. of nine competitors.

Hmm, wonder if they should have included the alloy version of this like they did with the gen 1 kits...

sounds good if they do, fully understand trying to give the most bang for the buck but if it helps with durability would be a plus for sure. I know with the V1s I really appreciated them doing that as they could have just said screw it and left it for upgrade duty.

I think it had a lot to do with getting the truck out to the public, and keeping the initial cost down.

For anyone that ordered from Tower, check and make sure the coupon code was added, their system had a glitch apparently.

My son is a novice driver, so we built his SCT410.3 with the following for maximum durability:
Aluminum A/B/C/D hinge pin braces
Aluminum diff cross pins
Aluminum ackerman plate
Aluminum shock caps
Aluminum shock bottom caps
Delrin shock cartridges
Lunsford 5mm Ti camber links w/Gen 1 5mm rod ends
Lunsford 4mm Ti steering links





He raced it over the weekend and nothing broke. Success!!!

I can't comment on the performance of the truck or the stock setup as I didn't get a chance to drive it, yet...

yeah my daughters first outing was with a tekno SCT410 and it was a tank. turned the power down a bit for her level and she did really great with. I know people will dissagree and thats fine, but I think with the right speed, having a vehicle that is easy to drive and durable are some of the most important things to keep someone in the hobby who is new. Getting frustrated because you are fighting the vehicle due to it wanting to spin out (on loose tracks here, 2wd can be a bear if new) or lack of durability is not the way to go.

Heck, would love to see a "stock" class for 4x4 SCT, something turned down to make the class acessible to more. Just seems to me odd that 4x4 means default mod in offroad.

I'd call tower personally and explain what you are hearing from people. You never know, worse case they can do something.

I wish I'd gotten my son a 4x4 instead of a 2wd two years ago.

He's pumped about his new Tekno!
