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.

Truck is a tank so not much needed really. Some guys bend shock towers ( I haven't) I personally have enough spares to build another truck but thats because IF I do need something I like to have it with me. With that said I ran it for all of our summer series plus quite a few practice days and didn't get to use any parts Truck is amazingly durable.

I have the Hobbywing 3656/4700kv set up and it hasn't given me any problems. (knock on wood) I don't have too many packs through it yet.

Troy9696: The only thing I changed on my build was a round head screw on the steering knuckles so the wheels wouldn't rub. Different shock pistons, Spring strengths and fluid weights are a good thing to have on hand.

Here's my 410.3 getting dusty.

I go thru mine every 4 race days or so but clean after every race and check everything over to make sure its all smooth and right. Sometimes I go longer and sometimes I change early trying different weights, of course I'm not Lutz though

TKR5161 - Aluminum "A" block... the plastic one seems to have a breaking point where one of the screws mounts into it. Mine broke with a fairly timid ht on some piping, but it just happened to catch the tire just right so it broke the A block in two.

New war paint for my 410.3. Thanks to Pistol Designs (Australia)

I still have to cut out the body vents.

Body looks great, I would do something like that if I was not crashing so much.

Ok, so I finally finish my kit this afternoon after work, put a battery in and roll it forward and back to set the sub trim on my remote to straighten the servo/steering. Then I roll it round the living room (slick tile, large room) and the next thing I notice is the rear wheels aren't really doing anything, upon closer look the little dog bone is laying on the chassis. Apparently the drive cup came apart, like broke a section off. I have a photo of it but I need to figure all that out from my iPad....

Anyway anyone else had this happen??? I could somwhat understand it if it was on concrete and I was trying to push it against a wall or something but on slick tile and two quick blips of the throttle would not be unreasonable I would think.

Any thoughts? I need to find and source a set before the weekend.

Theres only really one part Ive seen break more than once, and that's the front steering spindle. I usually just keep a full set of arms, hubs and spindles on hand just in case. Also a good idea to get the Alum A block.

I usually do it every few races. Not really on a tight maintenance schedule.

Hoese is pretty meticulous with his rigs. If he doesn't do it regularly it isn't hugely important. Dude cleans his sealed bearings on a regular basis.

Our local area is completely over-run with Teknos and I can not recall actually seeing a part break.

JConcepts Illuzion SCT High Flow.... Great body. Loved mine. That paint job is very unique and looks killer. Very nice work. Would look badass with the number plates bolted on, painted that same blue with white & red outline Numbers ����
