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.

The car doesn't drive itself, you don't even notice the input. And it's definitely not traction control. Apparently you guys have no idea what your talking about.
Turn it off and see if you notice a difference. You already said your results improved with it on. IMHO, whatever is legal at a track is legal at that track. Personally, I think its not right and I don't want it. According to the Spectrum website, AVC makes minute corrections in your steering and throttle output. What this means to me is that a computer is helping you drive. I prefer to learn how to drive my car without computer assistance, but that's just me. I think each track/event should address whether it is okay to use AVC at their track/event. I believe the consensus will be not to use it, but who knows. Just my 2 cents.

WHAT?!?

Sorry, I don't want to pile on and poo poo your use of this technology, especially if you say that everyone at your track is aware of its use and is okay with it (which I'm a bit suspicious about personally), but AVC type technology (basically a gyro inside the car feeding corrective input to the steering and throttle control) is NOT made for racing.

Its specifically against ROAR rule for examples, and every track I have raced at is against it. You can say that advancements in technology have always been used to help RC racers go faster (slipper clutch, ESC punch settings, etc.) but the line has to be drawn somewhere and it has already been drawn by many to exclude uses of gyros in RC race cars.

Agree or disagree, the discussion on AVC has to stop here. Good grief people...most of my recent posts have been reprimands! C'mon, lets grow up a bit and use our thinker-thingys.

There are a few FB groups out there with a pretty big amount of people already active. So if your group doesn't take off you can use these.

Those seem to be watered out brand specific, rather than platform specific like hers.
Sorta like the Losi pages out there, there is also one called SCTE Territory, which covers that specific truck.

Thank you. I know it takes a lot of work to admin a busy page... But please DO not make it a "4 sale" site.

Your welcome!
I made the page in hopes to bring the (410 series) owners and community together for a useful hub of information, setups, hop-ups and modifications to facebook. Pictures, race locations and general platform discussion are the main goals. I do not plan to allow for-sale items on the page and will make a note of it on the page rules I intend to post. Thanks for your input and hope to see you there!

(EDIT) The page suggestions and rules are now posted.

Hoese37, I decided to purchase one of these. However, the motor wire terminals appear to be some type of quick connects - they have set screws like the qteq terminals. Is yours like this? If so, did you use the quick connects? I'm wondering if they will vibrate loose.

Thanks.

I did use them at first. They stayed plenty tight. I ended up removing the motor one time, and lost 2 of the screws, so I just ended up soldering wires direct to the motor.

I'd use threadlock on them, and not worry about them. The screw into it isn't making contact, the screw will hold the stud close for the contact.

I did the same, also didn't match the shock package, the geometry layout is very good.

I couldn't get exact, but I'm close. For some reason I don't have enough spares of the right pills.
