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

TiNi Shock Shafts

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.

Hello, i've been looking at getting a 410.3 but I was wondering what 1/8 buggy tires would be like and how it would effect the handling? I'm only going to be doing club level racing and my club will let me run the 1/8 tires with no issues.

100% exactly my thoughts. The green fronts are the right spring rate... They're just too long. My ride height in the front was like 33, and I seriously laughed out loud, because the rear was at like 15 box stock.

Once you put a battery pack in, and the springs settle a bit you'll be able to get it down to about 27mm up front. Or you can just run the softer Pink springs... The Black shorter fronts are too soft I think (I have them). Pinks are the way to go Front & Rear. Actually, Pink front and Rear should have came stock to be honest. Theyee a much better fit across the board. The black rears are ridiculously too soft.

Are you guys building them with the bladders?? Or emulsion?? I went emulsion and am curious to how the bladders feel.

You'll need to buy the 17mm adapters to run buggy wheels. I would just run normal SC wheels so people don't accuse you of being a cheater.

I've built them with the bladders only so far. Might try the emulsion as people seem to get a lower ride height with them, not sure how but hey it's worth a try?

I am trying emulsion on my .3. Seems pretty good so far. I also dropped the shock oil to 30/25 to soften it up a bit. 35/32.5 with the Trifex pistons seemed way too stiff. I'm still running the green front but I went with pink rear. I have my ride height set at 27.

Have you tried fully compressing your springs? I have a first run .3 and built to kit specs with bladder shocks and have no problem getting the front low.

However the reason for my post is, after building the kit to book setup running the emulsion style shock i couldn't get the ride height under 28mm but exactly the way it has been suggested i ran 4 packs threw it then checked my ride height and it now sits at 23mm to get 25mm i actually have the shocks screwed down about 3 threads on the shock body, so I'm not understanding why some trucks can achieve 25mm ride height and some can't, i wonder if it has to do with emulsion vs vented, but like i said earlier i built it to book setup with the emulsion style shock and 0% rebound and have no problem getting 25mm.
Thanks TEKNO another awesome addition to my tekno fleet.
Emulsion here as well and i'm getting the 25mm ride height with no problems

Fully compressing the springs would raise the ride height? I'm talking collars all the up way, box stock set up... No batt, my front was way way higher than 25, more like 35mm. With battery it was at approx 32. After a few runs the springs have settled a good bit.

He meant compressing the springs by hand off the shock to break them in quicker so they will settle easier.

I'm able to get the box ride height. Running green in front and pink in rear. I have 3 or 4 race days on it now though.
