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.

Yes! Super durable, turns on a dime and handles bumps like no other with the extra long suspension. If you are thinking of getting one, go ahead, you will not regret it one bit

What type of track will you be racing on, what is the size of track you will be racing on, and is the track smooth or bumpy?

Outdoor, clay/dirt, bumpy, dry, sometimes wet, I think about medium size.

I run a different vehicle now but was running a lot of tekno previously, checking out the new eb48.3 I have to say it does look much better on the loose rough stuff here. If i was in the market again for another buggy, it would definitely be getting a good hard look from me.

One thing I do wonder, with the price drop, is there something new on the way, maybe some running changes, etc?

You'll do fine with any of the vehicles you listed at speedrc. It's a smedium (smallish medium) size track that is pretty tight to where you really can't stretch your legs out 100% with ebuggy, so it's more so technical than it is a fast track. The eb48 will do just fine there seeing as how fast it turns.

Wow! That's crazy because I have a 20t and thinking about running maybe 21t. I can't imagine keeping the thing from doing doughnuts with a 16t.

So I got everything installed and running. This set up is pretty quick. How quick? Not sure. I've only done street runs and didn't put it in the track.

I did notice that my center diff was pretty hot after zipping up and down the street. Not sure if that's normal. Don't remember my center diff in my other teks getting warm or hot.

street offers so much grip that the center diff has too much torque ( coming form the rear wheels ) to deal with.
I think it will work more cooler on a track

Yeah I figured the heat was from the 50ft wheelies. lol. Other than that, I have to wait for my body to come back to get to a track. She feels good though.

This buggy should do really good there. I would recommend getting the universal driveshafts though if it's bumpy.

Default Arm Mod

http://https://www.3dgydesigns.com/collections/frontpage/products/tekno-diff-shim-kit-1-5mm-and-2-5mm
Is that the arm mod in the second picture in the link? Also what does it do to the buggy's performance?
