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.

I run the OD setup, use the Truggy Ring and Pinion

TKR5151, TKR512

Use it in the Rear Diff

Have to use Truggy ring cause 9t Pinion is straight cut

What is the stiffest Rear spring anyone uses on a pretty rough outdoor track?

For the rough track was is the traction level you estimate?

Here our stuff is probably Low bite to really low bite, been running gray springs on the rear and really liking them.

Traction is fairly high when we keep it wet, I traction roll at times if I'm not watching what I'm doing. It's just cratered like the Somme in 1916

Is this a good race setup for my Tekno sct410.3?

That's awesome, and definitely not the first I've seen. Looks good.

In these pictures I do not have the extended hubs installed. I received them in the mail yesterday and they're installed now. ...but even without the extenders the big tires still clear the body. It's nice having the bit of extra width though.

[QUOTE=chainsaw10;15034808]Is this a good race setup for my Tekno sct410.3?

I think I have that same motor and esc combo. Are you running an adapter to fit the mod 1 pinion? also what pinion are you running?

It's a 2000kv gool motor....cheap but very good in my opinion. I have a few of them in different trucks. Motor has a 5mm shaft, so no adapter needed. I believe I have a 16t tekno pinion in there now.

Ok, Tekno experts, need a little help, please:

Although I liked the way my SCT410.3 drove with more or less of a stock box setup (only modified by a ton of hop-up parts and overdrive), I really hated the way it jumped: the (in)famous Tekno nose dive really started ticking me off. So I decided to try the new 2017 setups from Tekno's website ("Recommended Indoor/Outdoor Dirt" and "Joe Bornhorst's Medina Club"). As both seemed to be very close to another, I went for the "Recommended Dirt" one to use as a base).

So I got all the new parts: new steering (I know, that's not part of jumping problem ), LF springs(!) and I did all the other changes in geometry , etc. that these setups require - with two exceptions:

1.) instead of getting 8x1.3 (TKR6051) pistons and drilling them to 1.4, I simply bought 8x1.4 pistons (TKR6053) and
2.) since I already had the aluminium damper caps, I left the shocks with a vented setup, instead of emulsion.

I didn't yet have a chance to drive it again (due to weather and work), but just dropping it down from my hand, from a height of a little more than a foot or so, the chassis did a loud, full slap on the floor. I don't suppose it's because of the pistons, since they are 8x1.4 conical, as required by the setup, with matching oil and spring... or is it? Or could it really make such a huge difference (since I don't think that setup is supposed to chassis-slap so badly) between vented and emulsion shock setup? In other words should I bother and try going back to the plastic caps, or what else could it be? Any ideas?

Personally I would try it first and see how it actually track handles. I have seen guys have a vehicle that is plush on a drop test (and one of them was staring at me back in the mirror) and the vehicle was poo-poo around the track.

To, the SCT410.3 at least mine likes a really soft setup like what these news setups are using. I don't ever get a nose down issue, and it is easy to drive, very plush and can tackle bit tracks with ease, and other than setup changes and the rear hubs, mine is still with the regular SCT410.3 parts.

I went (some settings include stuff for the front just to give some balance):

- 8 x 1.4mm pistons all around
- 400cst front, 300cst rear PT racing oils
- Raise links on rear shock tower
- Lengthen rear link
- lean rear shock over (move to inner holes) on rear tower
- rear shocks to outer hole on a-arm
- Grey rear springs (if LF springs, probably pinks?)
- battery position to rear but I don't use the tray mod
- Move rear hubs forward
- Lighter center diff oil and rear diff oil (I am going all around to 10-10-5 but use 15-15-5 right now AE oils, 7-7-5 can work great or 7-7-3)

I like the Xray XB2 guide for quick setup advise other than it doesn't have diff oil settings since its for a buggy.
