Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

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 TKR8702 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.

If you are looking at going back to a 2S, the new Reedy Zappers 8000 are great. I run on a medium sized outdoor track and after a 10 min main, still have 7.8 v left in the tank.

If ROAR rolls into town the zappers won't work for you either, the high voltage lipos aren't ROAR legal. At least yet.......

I'm almost done building. I have a few questions with the ride height and shock length. My shock lengths are Front-101, Rear-119, (measuring the mounting holes, right?) I have zero tension on the springs and the droop screws are all the way in, is it possible to make them longer? My ride height is Front-34 Rear-29, how do I lower the ride height since I have no tension on the shocks already ?
My set up is stock, with pink springs front and back, front shock oil is 40, 35 in rear

I think you may have put the droop screws in from the top of the arms, they need to go in from the bottom so the button had hits the chassis. Note that the other end of the screw has a space for an Allen so toy can adjust it from the top.

Drop screws are installed correctly. They are all the way up in the arms, not even touching the chassis

are you measuring the front ride height behind the kickup in the front of the chassis? Also, are you measurinng with electronics and battery installed?

Take off you shocks and see if your arms move freely. Once installed, the droop screws compress the hole the hinge pin goes thru, creating too tight of a fit. Take a 4mm reamer or a round chainsaw file (I got one for .99) and run it thru the arm a couple times.

Next, compress the springs a few times to let them settle.

Finally, if needed, you can take off the upper spring collar and file it down to half thickness, which should lower your possible ride height by a couple mm.

The arms move freely. I'm not even close to being a few mm's off, I'm 10 mm off.
