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.

Castle says you can run the 3800 on 3s, just be sure to gear it correctly.

Try those, see how it feels for you. 35/30 is a good start for me...I'm running 450/350 and want to soften it up just a hair.

My last body was the JConcepts Manta. It broke in 7 places in my first 2 races. It was BAD. JConcepts sent me this Titan for free, and its night & day stronger than the Manta. The bodies with more detail, more creases, more lines seem to be weaker than the more simplistic body designs. This is simply my opinion, but I do believe the added creases create weak points.
Thanks for the heads up. I have been using the JC high flow and it's beat up pretty bad. Where can I get more tips on how to reinforce it?? I hate getting breaks and cracks by the mounting holes.

Default Xerun 4000kv 3s

I'm getting conflicting info regarding a 3s setup with this motor/esc combo and low pinion. Is it a consensus 3s is too much on the 4000 kv at a low 11 tooth pinion?

Get some shoe goo and some fiber mesh drywall tape. Smear a layer of goo around the post holes, then lay the mesh in, and a final layer of goo on top of that. It also does help to not tighten the post mounts so tight that they don't wiggle. Keep them a bit loose and make sure the holes in the body are slightly bigger than the post.

HW rates the 4000 good for 3s, but running it at that voltage does seem to heat it up a bit from reports that ive seen. If youre that low on a pinion youre probably very undergeared.

There's 3 set up sheets available on Tekno's website. Most people seem to be running 35 front 25 rear. Just keep in mind Losi oil is slightly lighter than AE oil. For example, 32.5 Losi oil is 30 in Associated. Keep that in mind.

Also, one of the things I noticed from looking at the set up sheets was the droop the sponsored guys are running. They are all running 105 Front & 120 Rear which surprised me. That's limiting the down travel quite a bit

Its not very limiting. Droop is measured by measuring the length of the shock, and at full extension the rears are 122. So 2mm isnt that much at all.

Switched from Hobbywing SCT Xerun setup to a Tekin RX8 GEN 2 and Pro4 motor and it seems a good amount faster. Pretty excited to make it to the track Saturday!!!

The smallest pinion that will fit on the split diff is a 14 tooth, which might work depending on how big your track is.
