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

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

I agree.................this body jumps very well due to the angled cut outs in the rear, it acts like a wing. I just picked up another one.

Wow, that is pretty much exactly what I had in mind. I think I'll be ordering one of those to try.

The longest lasting body I have owned. Whole year worth of racing.

The only thing I don't like is the side portrutions because tires rub against it. The body would be perfect with more clearance on the sides and the ass little shorter for the Tekno.

I was wondering if anyone was using shorty packs in their SCT's or using standard size packs? Thanks

It was Neumann or Hönigl at a EOS-race who used one with a Durango. But they disallowed it or something.

Don't know what the the comment by Mathew was to imply. That the nose down issue (which I never had) is remedied by a wing?

If Tekno would have thought that a better balance is achieved by putting the battery back they would have changed it in the .3. It was one of the first things I checked when they had pics out.

Also what's interesting is that the new setup sheet has lower rate springs again (thank god).

I believe a wing could make a big difference as long as it's positioned in the air stream. The first time I took my D413 to the track I didn't have the wing cut out so I dropped it on the track and took off without it. It was nosing over very similar to what my SCT410 does if I try to drive it "normal". As soon as I put the wing on that went away.

I had never really thought much about the wings on my buggies before that. Pretty much just installed them when I built the kits and then forgot about them.

I ran a wing a few times at the track on my sct410 with the evo body was better, went through entire truck freed up my suspension and changed over to delrin inserts single oring and delrin pistons and the truck was 100 different truck. Make sure your suspension is free moving. Helped me a ton.

If referring specifically to the nose down problem, Tekno may not necessarily change the battery tray if the mod doesn't cost you anything to do versus them redoing the mold for the battery tray.

Tekno reps themselves will mention modifying the battery tray concerning the nose down issue to move the battery back to help with the problem.

Part of it also could be relative to how often its seen, and who knows, maybe this new suspension geometry will help things as to me, its more of an issue on tracks where the common fixes cause traction issues due to the stiffness of the springs.

But if tekno ever decides to revise the tray so you can have that full range, i'll get it.

Thanks for the insight sir.

Do the wing needs to be straight up and down like the 2nd photo? or a angle?

I'm currently running shorties, but my truck weighs just under 6lbs RTR.

+1 on the JC F250 body I have been using it since it came out. Very durable and the rear wing really makes a difference.
