Welcome to the EB48.3 Wiki


What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

Springs:
Low Grip Track:
TKR8772 Yellow Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8762 Grey Low Frequency Front Springs

Low to Medium Grip Track:
TKR8773 Orange Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8763 Black Low Frequency Front Springs

Medium to High Grip Track:
TKR8774 - Red Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8764 - Pink Low Frequency Front Springs

TKR5199B HRC Rear Hubs (L/R, CV or uni, EB/NB/ET/NT48/48.3) - Improves stability of the rear on mid to corner exit. Able to be on power earlier on corner exit.

TKR6146 - CNC Delrin Shock Cartridge Set

TiNi Shock Shafts
-TKR6017T (front)
-TKR6061T (rear)

This car is very durable. Here are the spare parts that I recommend you keep on hand:
TKR5020 Hinge Pins (inner, front/rear)
TKR6061T Rear Shock Shafts w/ TiNi Coating and TKR6017T Front Shock Shafts w/ TiNi Coating
TKR5286 Front Suspension Arms and TKR5184 Rear Suspension Arms
TKR5194 Spindle Carriers
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.

Page 3 Step K-3
Put the screw in upside down so that the head of the screw is in the hex spot that's molded into the spindle. This will aid in clearance in full droop / full steering.

Page 12 Step I-2
Use no less than 4 shims on the steering spindle to limit steering throw. I actually just use one 2mm ball stud washer from my 10th scale stuff since each shim is .5mm.

Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here.

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.

TKR6035 are the front pink springs. I tend between those and green, which are stiffer than the stock black (black<pink<green).
TKR6034 are the red rear springs. These are 1 step stiffer than the orange that comes in the kit.

So I have an eb48.3 that my lhs got from hrp in about late December or so. Someone said the new kits have 40+ improvements since then? My kit does not have the lightweight motor mount, which I guess the new ones have.

Default About to buy a kit

I'm about to buy a kit and I was wondering, some of these kits being sold through other dealers and whatnot, are they the same kits with all the updated parts or is it luck of the draw type of thing for not buying direct through teknorc?

Is there a way to tell without actually buying the kit and looking at all the parts? Numbers on the box type of thing?

I'm not certain what updated parts / kits you are all talking about. I bought both my NB and EB back in November and they are current. As far as I know, there was no running changes in the kit since the .3 came out.

I would go back to the sources of your info and question it. If you still believe them, call Tekno and ask. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

Just to add, the reason I know I switched to Pink fronts was because I wanted a longer spring. The black spring puts the collar all the way at the bottom of the threads.

As the gentlemen above stated, he purchased his kit new but it didn't come with the lcg motor mount as it advertises on the teknorc site. I read somewhere on here many pages back about revised parts. So it shows that if that customer received a kit with a mount from .2 kit then he must've not received a kit with the most updated parts list.

That would be really stiff. I've heard of people running rear springs on the front, but not the other way around.

The front tower on the .3 sticks way up compared to any other buggy around. I hate to say it, but I would crash less. I don't think anyone makes an aftermarket front tower that I know of.

I did bend one, but completely my fault. Would have killed the front end on any other buggy. Just a bent shock tower on the .3.

I don't crash that often and the tower bent from normal driving. I only go to the track. I have never bent a tower on my other tekno's, 8ight 3.0 or my mugen truggy.

Default Pinion size 6s setup

Going to be running my eb on 6s (1350kv) what pinion should I start with? Most tracks I run will are medium to big to huge.

I'm confused. The Tekno Site says the following about the Motor Mount under the EB48.3 kit. Did you not get a motor mount included or do you feel it's the wrong one?

Motor Mount:
2-piece CNC aluminum motor mount with precision dual clamping gear mesh adjustment.
Split center diff mount for easy maintenance.
Lightweight direct-to-diff mount design.
Uses standard MOD 1 pinion gears (TKR4171-TKR4190).

Source: http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5005-...ric-buggy-kit/

Show us a pic of what you feel is the wrong part and we acn help you get it sorted.
