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!

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 don't have personal experience with Fioroni pistons so I can't give you a good starting point. If you think 25 sounds good then start with that and drive it on the track and see how it feels. Changing shock oil is a pretty easy/quick setup change so if it's too light just go up 5 or 10 wt and rerun. Continue tuning until you get it where you want it. Biggest thing to remember is that it will feel softer on the bench then the old truck truck with the old arms so be sure to run it before assuming it's too soft to work well.

So I put my order in at towers for the new 410.3 last night😀. This truck is going to be used primary for club racing, 10 min races. I'm going to be running the hobbywing sct 3400 combo on 3s. I plan on ordering some smc 4300mah lipos today. My question is how long of run times should I expect? Should I buy a bigger lipo?

Thx guys

I'd say keep may weight of the lipo to the same as a 7000+mah 2S setup. from there see what is out there for 3S usage. I think in general that is what I am hearing guys do.

Cain is correct. Side to side balance is a bit off. I run a 6500 mah and had to still add a bit of weight to the back left corner to get things balanced. Wish I had gotten the 7200mah.

Thanks for the advice guys. Anyone have a idea how long of run times I will get with the 3s 4300mah? Just want to make sure I can easily make a 10min race

Great isn't it? I raced this truck for the first time this weekend and over a year since pulling the trigger on a car. I didn't know a car could tumble like mine did and survive.

We have our upgrade kit on the site. Carbon is coming, not sure how long.

Default Wheel Choice

While waiting for my truck, I got my wheels/tires glued up. I noticed the wheels I picked (Avid Sabertooth) are much more pliable/easier to squish than what I have used on my SC10 (JConcepts, AKA, AE). I imagine this could have a large affect on overall handling and be frustrating changing from one set to the next. Does anyone have any experience with different wheels and how it affects handling? I have done some quick searches but can't find much.

Data point for reference to those of us still waiting and checking hourly...order March 31, not shipped yet (Tower).

Ordered my 410.3 over a month ago from Tower Hobbies. They still have not shipped it. I understand completely that this is an extremely popular kit and it could take some time to get it in. I am very bummed to here that Tower had some in stock, in limited quantities, yet I still havent had mine sent out. I am waiting patiently and am looking forward to racing it this season.

If you want the truck now, both Stormer and Amain are showing the kits in stock, and there might be other online retailers that have have them as well.

I don't think they handled the preorders correctly. I preordered over a month ago too... yet got no updates when they got a batch in stock last week. Looking at my backorders page it said both "backordered" and "in stock" at the same time. So I dropped the backorder, reordered immediately, saved an extra $10 ($60 coupon -> $70 coupon) and got email that it shipped the next day.

If I had waited 24h would it maybe have shipped from backorder anyways? Possibly. But if things were working properly then everyone with a backorder should have got a shipping email before things showed as in-stock for the rest of the world (like how Amain works)
