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.

I have no problem getting correct ride height with the stock front springs, I even have a couple turns of preload. Running green front, green rear.

Green rears are stiff. But they're not bad. I ran them this past weekend. I switched to Pinks for this upcoming weekend. For a smooth track Green/green would actually be a good choice. For a rough track pink/pink might be the way to go. Tire wise, I like Impacts, Holeshots, Lil Chasers Blockades, Megabites for outdoor low grip.

I was on a blown out track last weekend, and was having a pushing problem. Threw some Gladiators on the front, and woke it right up. I'm running the gladiators on the front, and bowfighters on the rear. It's allowing me to get some sliding action going around the corners.

Mine pushes a little too. But its not horrible. I might have too much toe out. Yeah!! Gladiators up front, yeah that's one way to turn fast! Those knobs are like 1/4" tall lol.

Lil Chasers in Green are my new favorite tire. Theyre new from J Concepts. They work really well.

Default Shock Towers

Anybody have plans on using the new carbon fiber towers? I've already bent one rear shock tower and I'm curious how well the cf will hold up, but don't want to be the first to try...lol.

Mine are on their way. I ran them on my last 410 for 2 years with no issues.

The last generation CF towers had the cutout for the shock standoff. That weakened the part a little bit. This time around, we went full plate, no reliefs and the durability is even better than before. Additionally, the rear is now 5mm where the last generation rear was only 4mm. So all around more durable and it still saves weight . CNC aluminum towers haven't been designed for the SCT410.3/EB48SL since the CF towers are holding up so well. FYI.

They will, but the geometry is very different.

This is great news!

My wife managed to break a rear CF tower on the old truck, but it held up much better and longer than the normal metal rear, which often bent on the huge jump courses. With this change to the thicker CF and no milling, it should be practically bullet proof!

Well that was a complaint I had with the rear was it was so flimsy, you can move where the shock mounts so easy like it was plastic with just a little force from your finger. So we'll see how the extra mm helps then.

I'm about to order this kit and was wondering if anyone knew of build sheets or could help me. I'm extremely new to this hobby and have never built a kit. What parts could you recommend. I get discounts with tekin and Tekno both. Any help would be appreciated.

the tekno sct410 builds very easily. you can download the manual before your build and it has what tools you'll need as well as what other parts you'll need. read through the thread before you start and it will help you see any areas that you might want to concern yourself with of upgrade before starting.

good luck, have fun, and everyone here is always happy to help with any questions you might have.
