TKR5542 Spindle Carriers - TKR5541B Spindles

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 used them on my v1. i cut the top of the post then drilled and tapped the stud.



i don't like how the "official version" has straight posts and doesn't carry the same offset or angles as the tekno front posts. it only takes a few minutes to make them and they work great. i have an extra set or two if you don't want to be bothered, pm me if you're interested in them.

Change the 20mm cap head on the steering knuckle for a 20mm round head and problem solved.

Those are play tires, rock crawler tires... "Run in mom's yard" tires. Definitely not made to race with.

race tires are relative to the conditions you run on. There are tire types we have hard time finding that are excellent out here for racing but are not the popular race tire here.

What if the track you're racing on has a surface that's similar to "mom's yard"? Not everyone has the luxury of blue groove or clay tracks to run your semi-slicks.

If you turned up at a loose dirt track with your chainlinks or dirtwebs, they're be laughing at you going "definitely not made to race with ... for this track"

Thanks. I have about 3 or 4 sets of posts so I'll give that a try. On your fronts, does the set screw go thru the body rests? If so, no problems if you crash?

What size drill bit did you use to drill the stud holes?

they don't go all the way thru, only half the length of the set screw. they've held great so far, altho the truck hasn't seen much abuse. the screws have a tendency to pull out (based on having them on my slash 4x4s) which is why i made a couple spares. the tekno plastic isn't as flexible as the proline plastic so they should hold better.

i don't remember if the set screws are 2.5 or 3mm. i probably just dug thru my bit box for something that was a tad smaller than the screw, then marked it at 1/2 the length for depth.

Shark's original post at rcshortcourse when he used the proline caps.


lol, my badlands... <3

Ok so I'm almost done my sct410.3 build. Just installing my electronics. I'm running a tekin 2650 1/8 motor and I can't get it to fit. The can seems to be hitting the servo wire retainer right under the motor before I can get it into place. Does the 1/8 motors not fit? Or am I missing something

for a 1/8 motor you will need the regular non-lcg style motor mount insert

.3 Race report
With only a couple of hours of practice on stock set up,the truck handles well on all aspects.Qualified 6 in the first heat , after more changes ended up 2nd on the second heat. Started 3rd in the main , after a few racing incidents felt back to 5th but fought back up to 3rd.
Summary: Great platform,tons of potentials. Need more time to tune and track time and this truck is for sure podium material day in day out!!
This coming from a Losi guy !!
