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.

Personally I'm going with either the Hitec 9360 or 9370. I like newer stuff regardless of price. Plus these are designed to run @ 7.4 and have hardly any pull on your battery. I don't recall who but they did a strain test by hanging a weight on a servo horn and went full turn. An attached volt me registered barely any draw.

[QUOTE=wreckya;13937910Running the M2C chassis with the battery mod and don't have the nose down issue.[/QUOTE]

is this due to the battery mod chassis or have you found the magical rear end set up for your track ?

I think the rear and nose diving is highly driver dependent. I had the opportunity at the dirt nitro challenge to have both Danny of Tekno and than lutz drive my truck. Danny immediately drove it and liked it as I do. Ryan had nosediving issues and wanted more cornering ability (my truck is set up more stable and less aggressive). After a couple laps Ryan still drove the heck out of my truck and was able to stop diving, but for him it required a change to using more throttle up the face of a jump. For me, I let off up the face and still don't dive. That middle where you basically stay constant is where it was a problem. Different setups and mods will change how it works for you and your driving style. For the stay the same speed folks, the battery mod is probably reasonable. My truck has ALL the weight forward though, including receiver and transponder and the back missing some plastic.

I have to agree. I personally have not had any nose-diving issues but I can't discount the testimony of so many others. Pretty much with any car, if I have jumping attitude issues I look at my driving and approach to the jump first.

for me it may be that since I am going between the EB48 and the ET48 now, my driving style is such with those vehicles that when I got to the SCT410, it comes up.

I'm curious how some of the composite parts (hinge pin braces, diff cross pins, split center diff mount) will hold up. Durability and wear has been such a strong point for Tekno on their previous kits. Hopefully that's still the case here.

My 9 year old son will be the one racing it; I'm certain he'll thoroughly test the durability...

We're looking forward to getting this truck, it'll be our first Tekno!

The only part that is newly plastic are the cross pins and front most hinge pin holder. They should both hold up well, but all can be upgraded to aluminum if by chance you break something. Expect to see all those parts on the Tekno store website shortly after the truck ships.

I have seen things done to a Tekno that were amazing, and it still raced. I have never seen anything in this hobby as tough, nothing.

From my understanding, they are basically defunct, but if you place an order, your Paypal will still be charged. Stuff will never come and you will have to go through Paypal to get your money back.

this was not the case for me at all 3 months back. the order sat pending in my paypal for about 2 weeks, then was credited back to my account, no issues no hassles. i attempted to reach out to hotlaps a few times via email only to get no response.

Well, I had to call paypal to get my money credited back. In fact, Paypal called the guy from hotlaps and, according to them, actually spoke to him. If I never called, I would have been out the money with nothing to show for it.

Point still being, that orders go through and then no further response from hotlapsrc.

AVOID.
