Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

7.26.17 - BB
In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:
TKR6106 Orange LF Springs
TKR6114 Green LF Springs
TKR6018 composite shock caps (built to emulsion) OR TKR8702 Aluminum Emulsion Shock caps
TKR8027 Shock Stand Offs
TKR6051 8x1.3 pistons(drilled to 1.4mm)
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.

Totally depends on the surface. Hard question to answer. I started a few years back making them out of 2.5mm, I believe, and people didn't like how thick they were, so I made them thinner, now at the 1.4mm I seem to get an overall approval. This does shorten the life span of the aluminum's. The stainless last a long time, probably longer than you will own the vehicle, unless you are running on a super abrasive surface. According to many of my buddy's who are chassis sponsored, they don't like to run them in fear they may change the projectory of the vehicle on take off from a jump. The other reason some can't run them is contract prohibits it. I personally haven't seen this projectory problem happen, but it could be possible, and there will be a slight drag with anything that hangs below the surface of the chassis. Hope this helps!

Just purchased the aluminum from Sumo and will let everyone know how they hold up

I have the same question, do the regular screws work and how does the front skid go under the bumper? any advice on setup.

Also looking to get another set for a used SCT410 on ebay. Aswild - is $175-$200 a good deal for a roller?

thx

Good price for a used one...lightly used ones go for a lil more. The chassis tells the story.

Default RE: Tekno on Ebay

Bottom in normal shape on 1 but seller looks like he took great care of it. $170 for roller plus 8 wheels/tires 50% tread.

There is another sct410 that has been built except for the shocks. Never used. Just the kit almost completed currently for $195 bid...

Just would need motor/esc combo and a reciever. already have the rest... thx for your help! Was thinking of running this one on 3s/4s on a low KV Xerun setup for practicing on the track and bashing...

Default Shock Towers

Would there be any interest in 7075 alum shock towers from M2C racing? I have already bent two of the stock rear shock towers. Just purchased the cf, but I prefer to run alum. If there is enough interest, they would probably make them. Idk if they need to be 4 or 5 mm.
