TKR8104 .4 bellcranks

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

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.

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.
Cool thanks!!

Got most of my SCT410.3 built over the weekend, how is everyone building their shocks? Recommended way is vented, I've never built shocks as vented or emulsion, just the traditional way w/the bladder.

The hobbywing sct pro and hobbywing 4000 is a awesome combo also that's cheaper than the Tekin.
What did u set up the esc at do u recall?

Stupid question time: Are those clear fins mounted on top of the nerf bars part of the kit or something extra? What are they called?

The castle esc I used was straight factory settings. All I did was calibrate it to my spektrum radio. I geared it properly also and constantly kept a check on temps but the esc still croaked. Might have just been a defective unit from the factory IDK. Once I went hobbywing I never looked back. I use Hobbywing sct pro and xerun sensored 150A and rx8 escs with good luck so far.

Does anyone know how each of these effects the truck? I've built emulsion and bladder but never vented.

Need help please. I just got my kit the is the absolute first time building a rc in general. I'm at the front shock build but I made a mistake I was going for the vented build and drilled the vent for the top of the cap right but drilled the bleeder where it's supposed to be for the emulsion build. So my question is am I screwed or can I put the screw in and drill the other hole. If I can use that as my bleeder where do I find the oring for the bleeder screw. Also I saw a link somewhere of a step-by-step shock build for these could some one point me in the right direction please and thank you

Myself, and many others, use the emulsion hole as the bleeder hole so that we have the option to build the shocks either way. You are totally ok to just leave that hole unplugged and not drill the other one. Or you could plug it with the included screws and drill the other one.

Just the one on top would be my suggestion if you already drilled that hole.
