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:

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'm also fairly new to the hobby and just finished my 410.3 build. I was very impressed with the instruction and had no issues with the build. The only upgrades I did right away was the the aluminium servo horn and air guards. I'm running the stock wheel hexes and have had no issues. Just be careful not to over tighten them.

If you get a discount on tekin I would say go with the rx8 prohd 4300 combo.

I can't seem to find instructions on how to measure droop. Hoping someone can run me through the procedure.

Thx guys

The way the Tekno setups measure it is by the length of the shock when extended from the lower bolt to the upper nut.

Just so there isn't confusion, it's the center of the shock standoff/nut to the center of the lower shock screw. Not the ends of each.

As others have stated, download and read the manual.

Develop strong forearm muscles, the SCT410.3 is a beast of a kit. It's not like any 1/10 scale kit you're likely to ever see.

If you are getting the HW SCT Pro get the 3656SD 4000kv HW motor or the 4700kv if you want to go totally nuts with the power. 18 pinion on the 4000kv.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I was told the tekin motor would be better that the hobby wing

There is nothing wrong with either motor but personally I run a HW, for the money I don't believe they can be beat. I also have a Tekin but it sits in my box as a spare.

The Hobbywing 4000Kv motor is quite versatile in the truck. Works great on small and large tracks when geared appropriately and runs very cool.
