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 definitely used to the faster servo

I have been thinking about the Castle products, but afraid to invest when lots of people at our track are running Tekin. I just like the idea of having people at the track helping out and having intimate knowledge.

I do build long range rifles, I am the owner at Short Action Customs.

I had the Ofna version of the Enduro, the TS4. Its a very light truck compared to the Tekno.

so would 35front 30 rear be a good setup with this truck and 6x1.5 pistons and pink springs....... That's what I've gathered from here and a local.(he said Pistons but not springs or oils lol)

I tried a castle sct combo and cooked the esc on the second track visit. Castle recommends it to be used in light scts only. The 3800 castle motor was not a good choice for a Tekno. I ended up going to a rx8 with a pro4 4600 and it was a massive difference. The tekin was more powerful all around and both esc and motor ran cooler than the castle setup did. The hobbywing sct pro and hobbywing 4000 is a awesome combo also that's cheaper than the Tekin.

I ran a Castle MMP in my SCTE for 2 years with no issues running a Tekin 4000Kv 4 pole 540 motor. The Losi is almost as heavy as the Tekno. I'm not a huge fan of Castle products (chinsy quality and pathetic BEC's) but I think it will do in a pinch. Just remember, running these vehicles with no current limiting and wide open throttle usually results in higher temps, more wheel spin, and slower lap times. Being able to pass someone on the straight is totally useless if they return the favor and blow you away through the infield. Also, if the ESC fan quits working, it needs to be dealt with promptly. Running without the fan will cook the ESC pretty easily.
