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.

I'm sure this has been discussed but I don't want to read 222 pages.. Are people having problems with the plastic diff cross pins? I see they sell a lot of different options for these. I have had no problems just curious if it's a future issue. One other question. I'm currently running a Tacon 4800kv motor that is great except for the stiff wires that come out of it.. I have a Reedy 410r Black box on order. I've ran the Tekin Pro4 HD 4300kv is the regular Tekin Pro4 4600kv powerful enough for a Truck of this weight.. Is there a big difference in power?

Just looks odd on paper.
I've tried 4x1.8 taper up 500f/450r pink front/green rear on outdoor type track (Rocck racing knoxville) and it was too soft oil wise. Rear would donkey kick. I probably should have tried taper down. I usually run 6x1.5 pistons with 400f/350r at this track, but wanted to try something diff. Keep in mind the high temp was maybe upper 50s.

The setup u are looking at seems to be for indoor clay track. They tend have more grip, be smoother and have smaller jumps. If thats is the case, you want harder shocks.

Apparently some folks had the .3 wheel hexes break- seems like it was from over tightening the hexes and cause the aluminum to crack.

As long as you use some blue thread lock on the grubsrews and snug them down but not overly tight you won't have an issue.

Mine have been perfect thus far.

No upgrade needed.

Default Loc tite alternative

I use this stuff on every metal to metal thread on every Rc car I own, it even keeps screws in gas buggys. Best stuff ever made. Basically turns every connection into a nylock situation. In the rare occasion something does come loose, they do not just vibrate out.

Just a report regarding my problem getting zero rebound and uneven rebound. I got alu and delrin parts for my shocks, seems like it did the trick! Now I'm able to build my shocks perfectly

7 months and a half dozen set-up changes later and my Tekno is hooked up !!!

Thanks to all of the suggestions, set-up tips, and other items noted in the previous 200+ pages!!!

New track layout at our local track, fast and low profile (26 second laps) vs our previous track layouts that had big jumps and technical sections (33 second laps) and my current set up just rocked... I'm not the fast guy at the track, but taking a second place against my buds made my night last Friday!!!

Keep Trying New Things... Sometimes Go Back to Old Things... you will find what works for you.
