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:

I would always cover the entire bottom of the ESC with your adhesive of choice. I just use the 3m outdoor mounting tape, but I run 2 strips of it so I fully cover the bottom of the ESC and get it really good and solidly stuck to the plate. Nothing EVER is going to knock that ESC off the plate (I actually saw somebody I did this for break a screw in the plate on a crash and the ESC was still stuck on and fine). The key is to make sure it is clean and FULLY covered. Openings invite dirt to creep in on the edges and reduce adhesion.

Generally the tire is better for this than the rim. On the rim when dirt gets in, the foam just gets eaten up over time as the dirt is spun into it. On the tire, most of it gets flung back out.

I prefer do punch the wheel so when I clean the tires I don't get water in them. I've never had an issue with dirt getting in the foam

My theorys are if I run indoor clay(wet) no dust situation I will drilled the wheels but for outdoor loamy,dusty condition then I punch the tires.
Or if you wash tires often over the course of the day then drill the wheels so you don't get the foam wet and ruin them.

Gotcha tks bro , Im kinda skeptical about punching holes in spanking new tires gotta say .These Jconcept rims already have holes. Need more holes, that would be 4 holes total. What size hole are we looking at? Also , Im setting up to run primes, Webs & Pressure points For high bite indoor & outdoor clay . These all need holes ?

Outdoor Racing and Tire washing the Tire Punch is the way to go. Holes in wheels is what lets water and dirt in the foam.

I would recommend you to run AKA black foam up front with the Primes and run the stock blue in the rear for indoor high bite track.

My take on these two options:
Wholes in the wheel trap dirt and water in.
While the whole in the center if tire allows it to escape when the tire expands. I've had better luck with the later
