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.

Pretty sure I never said anything bad about them and if you go through my previous posts I stated I like the HW motors.
Or it could be a lower markup, lower manufacturing costs, lower distribution costs, or other things that in no way effect the final product.

Just saying.

I wouldn't worry at all about HW sct pro.
I've just sold a Tekin RX8 gen2 to get more HW esc,I have 3 cars in the present time ....they are Tekno sct410.3:HW sctpro/Tekin 4300hd
Tekno SL.3 :RX8 gen2/ Tekin 4300hd (sold Tekin for HW)
Losi MIP scte :HW sctpro/Tekin 4300hd
The RX8 came with the superlite when i bought it and no matter how i adjust it , it never as fast as my other Hobbywing plus my Hobbywing have out last my buddys RX8 3 to 1 !!
Sct pro runs cool,fast and very efficient . I race every weekend...club and sanction races. The Hobbywing got me podium every time i'm out.
I'm not bashing on RX8 but you don't have to pay double to win races if you paired it with the right motor and set ups.
BTW:the HW is 3 years old in my SCTE and still winning !!!

That is true and I'm not disputing that. Just look at Novaks new motors. Just a marked up Tenshock. Theres always an exception.

I don't think things are better because they cost more, maybe it seems that way. I am willing to try anything and if it works without issue I will continue to use them.

To keep this on topic, do you guys sand the diff cases? I read over on the ET48 thread that they are having a problem with the diffs leaking and they sand the edge on the case to flatten it out. I've built three Tekno and a set of spare diffs without touching them at all and they don't leak a drop.

I didn't sand my diffs but did notice my center diff had a possible leak after building so I disassembled and replaced the gasket and made sure it wasn't overfilled. No issues so far.

I have never sanded my diffs either, but i do apply a very light coat of lucas oil red and tacky grease to the diff case interface w/ the gasket. VERY light. I have been doing this w/ my sct410 and my eb48 since purchase and no leaks ever. Tip came from a nitro racer w/ tons more experiance than I will ever have.

For some reason, when freshly built or rebuilt, the center Diff will splatter oil out for the first 1-2 runs. Then it will stop. Mine & my buddy's both did this. You'll see small amounts of oil (think its leaking) then it will stop. Not sure why... But I wouldn't be too alarmed. Wait it out....

If its STILL leaking after 2-3 runs. OR if it's leaking A LOT of fluid then you may have an issue. Make sure you put green slime on the gasket. Make sure you seat the gasket all the way down with no creases. And make sure the holes are lined up. You can use oil, slime, grease, or K&N filter seal grease.

Sanding the face may help a bit if it's necessary. There may be slight defects in the plastic that need smoothed out.

This setup is in about 50 percent of the 4x4 sct in my area. My truck is just as competetive as others w/ electronic packages that cost 2 to 3 times more. No reason what so ever to bag on these products.
^^Exactly.

How's this: "Most people" (where I race) run the HobbWing SCT Pro Combo. And most people I have spoken to all have good things to say about it, and recommend it to others. You don't need a $350 ESC to win races. When it comes to high dollar electronics, many people make the mistake of thinking expensive = BEST. We're racing toy cars. If it's budget friendly, and it works great... Go for it. Most of the time when stuff burns up its from user error or abuse.

Thats fine and I agree. Do people actually use a $350 ESC? I didn't even know somebody made one that expensive.

Most expensive doesn't alway mean the best but the best is often the most expensive. (or close to it and purely subjective)

I've also been using the same Tekin 411P for the past 24 years, granted a lot less these days, with zero issues. I think the HW guys were stains in their fathers underwear back then.

I never did until I got a NT48. I couldn't get the center to stop leaking. Haven't re-assembled yet so I dont know if that will solve the problem. Never had a problem with either of my SCTs.

What spring choice should be used for indoor high bite wet clay track? Thinking of pink springs in the front and pink spring in the back. Post any good setup sheets would help.

I have pink on the front and stock blacks on the back right now, I may try pinks in back as well. The kit setup was pretty good for me on the surface you are running on and think it would be even better If I could get 25/24MM ride height in front but I'm still at like 28+MM in front with no preload.

Yeah Pink Pink might be good. I ran Black fronts Pink Rears last weekend off-road, low bite outdoor. It's definitely hard to get 24mm with the green fronts. If the green Springs were 65mm, instead of 70 it would be nice. With the 70mm Green 28 is about the norm (with batt).

Pink front, Green Rears is also worth a try.
So far I like Pink/Pink best with 25/35 Losi oil.

Next rebuilt I'm going to 5/5/2 in the Diffs, and see how that changes things.
Is it possible to Reuse Diff gaskets?? Or must you replace them with each rebuild?
