Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:

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.

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

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 updated NB should be rolling around about the beginning of summer, they are waiting for both kits and parts to be in stock before putting them on sale. Check back then.

Just pulled the trigger and ordered a sct410.3 and was wondering now that they have been out for a while, is there anything i should replace or upgrade from the get go, i already bought the aluminium clamping hexes and was wondering if theres anything else i should consider. Also what bodies have people gone with to get the best handling out of the truck. TIA

Guys, buy a tap and tap the holes in the diffs first. It makes threading the screws in easy, leaves a flatter mating surface between the diff housing and gasket, and reduces the stresses on the diff housing itself. It takes like 30 seconds per hole tops.

Aluminum servo horn. Some are installing the aluminum "A" hinge pin bracket. I plan on doing that. Make sure to get SCTE wheels. The air control guards help too.
Bodies that handle well - for me Jcon Titan (endurance issues tho - do any sct bodies last?) and Proline Flotek Chevy. People like the Jcon F250. I haven't tried it yet, but I have it. Just gotta paint it. I haven't heard anything about the Proline evo. I'm curious as to how well it works.

Thanks for the quick feed back. Also I'm really struggling to choose a motor an esc combo, I'm down to 2 and can't for the life off me decide which one to go with, I'm tossing up between the RX8 GEN2 with pro4hd or the hobbtwing pro sct with hobbywing 4 pole motor.
I love hobbywing its a great product when you consider the esc and motor is the same price as the RX8, money isn't an issue only because when it comes to my motor and esc i don't mind paying the extra for a better product but is the tekinn really worth almost double The HobbyWing. Im looking for the best performance, most reliable and most importantly smooth power delivery, i would love to here from people running these set ups and if anyone has run both which they prefer and why again TIA

You just need to use Loctite, and just snug them up. no need to torque them down.

I have the hobbywing sct pro combo. It's not bad, has some programming hiccups. But for the price it can't be beat. I personally am not impressed by tekin at all. If I were to get a different esc, it would be Orion. I have an Orion in everything else after dealing with a couple bad tekins. Orion is worth the money for reliability.

Is the aluminum D hinge block an LRC like the optional one I can buy for the V1 truck?

So the pills allow an HRC or LRC setting?
