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.

I believe what you need to do is induce a little more roll in the rear. At high speed this will help plant the rear so it doesn't want to rotate. Be careful with inducing too much roll as this will prevent the truck from steering in the corners. Best thing is to move the rear camber link up on the tower. After you've tried that, possibly going to one spring lower on the rear or moving the rear shocks in on the rear tower could help too. Wouldn't recommend the last two until you tried going up on the rear tower camber link.

Matt, wouldn't a softer rear sway bar be a tuning option to address this?

Try something new if not fit to your driving skills. I have tekno 410.3 with ton of upgrade I just sold here. I am not bashing this thread I love tekno products most durable kit that I have same with xray but my driving skills not fit so i try to get SCTE 3.0 and my driving skills fit easier to drive than tekno. My local track never beat tekno guy sponsor since we're both tekno but when i got the SCTE 3.0 lucky i beat him twice in race.
Thanks for the input (other guys too). I think you nailed it though on driving style/skill. I'm going to try the suggested changes this weekend, but i think you might be right. Yeah Tekno's awesome. Ran an EB48.2 all spring and summer and it was great. The .3 is in my shopping cart as we speak. But for SC...we'll see. Thanks guys

Don't give up on the SC just yet. I'm still working on my setup now, but I had my last truck pretty close to dialed. Kinda wish I didn't sell it. This truck can be really, really good. Just have to work on setup to find what you like. Make a change, run a pack. See how it feels. Best way to figure out what each change does, and which way you need to go.

If you are hepped up on getting the Tekin I would say compare that price to what they go for in a range on ebay and that should give you an idea if thats a fair price.

For sure, anything to induce a little more roll in the rear will help with high speed sweepers.

To be honest the SCTE 3.0 is amazing easy to drive with stock set up and more planted and faster entering/Exit in the corner. The tekno guy sponsor i always got him inside the corner with 180 turn. My SCT410.3 i mod battery location with BCE chassis but my driving style is still not good. I think if you running indoor track i'll go with SCTE 3.0 but outdoor SCT410.3.

I have this, the proline screw on body mounts, and the MKS 599 servo (up from Savox 1267/1268)! I can't wait to try em out.

Aside from the Ford Bronco, any other good bodies to try that are different? Mainly looking for various practice bodies... I love my Jconcepts Ford Raptor Xflow for racing....

Super excited to try out my MKS 599, it was supposed to arrive today but it got delayed, so looks like Monday i'll get it!

I'm glad that by the sounds of your description the SCTE 3.0 is finally able to provide the Tekno some competition. Tekno just had a huge unfair advantage prior. Let the racing begin! :-D

I am glad to see the vehicle battles still going on in 4x4 SCT. Enjoy the class and hope it stays around. Its popular out here with Tekno leading the way from the vehicle types I see. the make excellent vehicles for those starting out who want a tough vehicle that handles well too.

Yes,here at our track too. The battle between Tekno and Losi is alive and well. The matter of fact we've been running B main in our club races lately

I'm having issues with the inside of wheel rubbing on the rear A-arm. Am I supposed to space the hexes off using washers or something? This is the second set of wheels that rubbed. They are Jconcepts Hazard wheels, 3mm offset. the Tekno FAQ says that LOSI SCTE wheels are compatible, which these are (wrong! see below Edit)..

https://www.amainhobbies.com/jconcep...o3344b/p212763

Edit: These wheels are actually not LOSI compatible, they are Associated compatible. I wonder if that's the problem? A fellow racer at the track hobby shop may have given me the wrong wheels. The part number 3352B is the LOSI SCTE wheel. Crap. Good thing I checked before I glued them.

Ive always been happy with DE racing wheels amongst a number of my cars and cant recommend them enough.
