Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:

TKR8104 .4 bellcranks
TKR8100 .4 ackerman

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.

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

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.

Next I tried a set of yellow HB front springs. They are 2mm shorter and the rating was 3.81 vs 3.83 (front pink). I was able to get the ride ht down to 25 and my truck ran great. Driver error allowed for, but I ran a very fast main, the truck felt great.

$30 on springs this week LOL

Question... how do you compare manuf-A spring rating from manuf-B spring rating?? I doubt they use the same testing equipment??
I doubt you would ever know without having a spring rate tester handy

Spring rate tester

3 out of the 5 times I've had my truck to the track, I've had one side pop out of the front bumper ( the very bottom where it meets the chassis) Is this common ?

Mine pops off the chassis all the time too. Was just thinking about going back to the first Gen bumper if I can

On the old truck I ran green all around with the 8x1.3. With the new truck I have been experimenting a little. Ran green all around with the 6x1.5. This past weekend tried yellow all around and it felt great. This was on a low bite hard packed indoor track. Going to try same setup outdoor on medium bigger jumps. I didn't have any nose dive problems and truck felt planted all around. I didn't loose any steering, that I noticed. Running the Jeremy McGuinen set up from willow farms.

can anyone help me with setup on the old truck, im running stock settings but with a few changes, rear:shocks leaned in to innermost hole on tower, 8x1.3 kyosho white pistons, 32.5wt ae oil and black rc8b rear springs.
front has:rc8b silver springs, 45wt oil.
the truck handles fairly well on our rough 1/8th track but i have to roll any of the higher speed jumps or else its front flipping and bending rear towers. im not really into the electric thing so im just using a traxxas 7200 7.4 pack i had to cut the batt box to fit as its so large(it sits against the brake servo mount in rear).
id really like to run the truck but tonight i got so frustrated with it i pulled it off the track halfway through the main.
anyone have a decent setup sheet for a rough 1/8th track with highspeed/large jumps

And no glue is necessary if you use the right kind of foam. It's not going to go anywhere if you cut it thick enough that it expands over the top and bottom of the hoop.


Your best bet is to get some EVA foam and cut it to size. You can find this stuff in abundance anywhere you can buy interlocking mats, like these>

With those springs I wasnt able to get ride height down that low.. Unless I brought shocks all the way out . Shocks all the way out werent working on tracks with alot of jumps..
Indoor ,high bite, alot of jumps , Fairly smooth: I started with yellow , then to green. These were to high and bouncing around to much. So now using pink. Going to try blk next. But as of now IMO anything heavier then say pink is maybe more for a heavier 1/8 set up. Things might be totally different outdoors ...
