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.

That will happen if you land on the back end and lid a lot. The towers are just stamped aluminum, nothing too special. Im sure if the demand was warranted to Tekno, they would get the machined towers made for the truck, but then youd be adding about $50 to the cost of the kit. The kit materials are there to make it more cost effective.

how thick are the stamped towers? To be honest when I had the OG 410 it looked like you could darn near put two towers together and just bolt up if the other bolts were long enough.

What's the best $60 Servo to put in these? I bought a Turnigy TS920 and its fast, but after 5 races & some hard landings... It's got slop in it already.

I don't know what Servo to buy? I'd like a .08 or .10 for $60. HiTec? Spectrum? Savox?

Idk if it would have enough torque for you in one of these but the spektrum s6040 fits your speed and price specs...

not sure if amain has any discounts right now, but I have heard that the Protek 130T servo is good and its specs look fast and high torque.

Anyone have any opinion on the spectrum 6040 servo? I got a great deal a few weeks ago on a brand new 410.3 with a Tekin pro4/rx8 setup. Came with this servo. Bought a glitch buster as it was aittle noisy. The 23 tooth metal servo born looks a little small and seems to be angled upward. In any event, does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations with this servo?

While it has great speed and torque ratings for car racing it IS a helicopter servo..... It says it in the name.....while I do think it would work well in this car..... It is a heli servo
