Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:
TKR6106 Orange LF Springs

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.

The body should come with a guide that will tell you which holes to drill. The truck was designed to have the same mounting points at the SCTE. There are 2 different front body posts included in the kit. Its to offer a different mounting location if the body has a feature that interferes with the normal hole location. SCTE bodies are direct fit.

Its cold here in Germany...(but sometimes wet).
Thought of using the Tenshock 411 5200kv with a small pinion (12, 13, ) to get more punch on the ramps for longer jumps.

I use the Tenshock 411 4600kv already. Power consumption changed to 4000mah in a 5 min race from 2000mah with the SC 10 4x4 driven by LRP 2-pole x12L 4,5.

it didnt quite line up perfectly with the scte holes. I just drill a small pilot hole
before I paint.

so for the new vehicle, what appears to be areas of upgrade to get right away? So far looks like:

- Aluminum Servo Horn
- Aluminum Front hingepin brace

Hexes "might" be an issue but seems its more so not cranking them down. That about sum it up?

[QUOTE=FAO;13996033]Repairing my damaged car, i noticed that the smallest pinion to mount is the 14 teeth, you cant get the motor nearer to the spur gear. So, ordering 11,12 and 13 was sensless. (this may become a problem with a 5200kv motor)
17 and 18 may be critical concerning motor temperatures, so 15-16 are the right ones.

Can anyone else comfirm this?
I'm planning on running a hw 3400kv on 3s and wanted to gear for efficiency/power. I don't want to run into issues with pinion fitting. Anyone have a idea what pinion size I will be using? I was thinking 14 or lower? I will be racing med/large outdoor tracks.

this could be because the .3 comes with the lightened lowered motor mount. possibly with the regular mount this won't be an issue ?

With just few ride's behind I'll think you have it right. I hope the second issue will be corrected by Tekno with new kitt's. Aluminium servo arm sure will not be in the box when it would not be a wise move ( should be many for all spiline's).

More traction and tighter turning in 180s.

14 is the smallest on the old mount. Maybe try flipping the new mount around to see if you can get smaller.

I did a search on here and saw one person asked this question, but I don't think it was ever answered. I've built more kits than I can remember including my last SCT410, but I'm feeling like I did something wrong here and can't figure it out.

The lowest front ride height I'm able to attain with the kit set-up is 27mm and that's with the front shock collars all the way up. The kit set-up sheet says the front ride height should be 25mm. I must be missing something, but I can't figure it out. The new locking shock spring perches have the knuckles pointing to the outside of the vehicle, and I verified I'm using the correct springs.

Thanks . . . Matt

I've had my new truck for 2 weeks and tomorrow will be my first time to run it. I'm excited to get this one on the track.

You will need to run it a bit to get the springs to settle in.

Could you expand a bit on the springs "settling in"? Thanks
