Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

7.26.17 - BB
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.

Yea, they call me the seastar. (not the snail, these are to fast)

Medium time for one round is about 1-2 seconds behind the top drivers. But with the lighter SC 10 i get 1-2m at the start and at every accellerating point, i am just to slow and not constant in the corners.

https://wwwapps.ups.com/ctc

standard shipping is the Best bang for the buck, and it always gets there fast, as others have mentioned. We have the SCT410.3 for $387 shipped. We ship every package, every day, no delays.

I suspect if questioned, most people here get there stuff from us in 2-4 days.


.
Punched in the info provided and i was at $45 for 2nd day shipping from UPS. So if $50+ is needed for handling, yeah that seems preposterous, and I did go to your website to confirm it still shows $99 for me (48 US states). Maybe having a better caculation based on where your zip code is (58104 here) would help?

But, if you want fast shipping, you got to pay to play.

I'm thinking this is going to be my first 4wd corr truck. I've searched the thread but somehow couldn't find the answers I have been looking for:

1. How much lighter is the .3 than the original?

2. Those that have driven it, are you experiencing the same nose dive issue as the original?

Thanks!

Hello guys I have been lurking on the site for a while but this will be my first post. I have decided to order the tekno 410.3 after all the good things I read about the 410 on this site. I have a few questions tho.

1) what replacement or upgrade parts should I order? I'm thinking tekno aluminum servo horn, air guards and aluminum hexes(just in case I have issues with the new lightened ones)

2) I'm think of running the zerun sct pro combo(3400kv) will be running mostly 3s but would like the option of running 2s also. Is this a good combo for that?

3) Is there any other tips I need to know before ordering and building this kit?

3) Its been a smooth build

welcome to the tekno world horby.
the tekno horn is a great fit, i tried the serpent horn, but it doesn't fit all servos, bla bla bla.. stick with the tekno. i like the airguards as well, there's noticeably less parachuting with them
2.what's you're intended use of the truck ? i personally like lower kv motors geared higher and run the 3500 range on all my sct bashers on 2s and love the grunt it gives.
3. i can't speak on the .3 kit, but the original kit built great for me. if you haven't already so thru the original sct410 thread here and over at rcshortcourse, there's an amazing amount of information in both places.

good luck with it and have fun.

Thanks guys for the quick responses.

I will be using the truck primarily for club racing and plan on running 3s as the 2 closest tracks to me allow 3s. But would like the option of running 2s if I go to a track where it's restricted to 2s. Would the xerun sct combo(3400kv) work for both 2-3s? if I changed the gearing?

Is it normal to have about 1/4 inch play between the outdrives of the front diff, drive shaft, and center diff?

I'm assuming you're talking about the really long center shaft? Yep, it's got a bunch of space to move around.

i think in the sct410 thread a few people put o-rings in the cups to take up a little of that slack and as a side bonus it quieted down the driveline a bit.

Yes, the play is there to allow for chassis flex and hard crashes without destroying that front shaft.

The SC10 is a hard truck to be consistent with, and also a hard truck to push hard without crashing unless on a tight and fairly decent traction indoor track. Don't be surprised if you get a bit faster once you're familiar with the new truck, just because it drives better.

Ready to go and excited for the first drive. it was a perfect build. Very curious to see how it handles especially with such light shock oil. Did find something a little disturbing when I put my tires from my V.1 to V.3 the rear wheels rubbed. I swear someone told me that AE SCT 4x4 wheel were the ones to use, they worked fine, but not so on V.3. So I believe SCTE are the correct offset? that's what the website says.

The scte offset was always the way to go. I think the ae offset put you over legal width even on the .1

Are TKR1654X the correct aluminum hex for the .3?
