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.

great. 6s is cool with the good esc. I used a very basic esc, that's why I didn't get the best of a 6s setup for controlled 1/8 buggy driving

I like the XR8 a lot. I ran an RX8 first, then a Viper VTX8, and now an XR8. To me, it's the perfect combination between the two. The VTX8 was soo smooth, but really lacked the power of the RX8. The XR8 is very smooth as well, but packs lots of punch. It does run a slight tick warm, not anywhere near the Viper though.

I'll throw this out there as another option, the Castle MM-X works excellent and is waterproof. I have been quite impressed by it.

I've no issues with my XR8 and it definitely feels smoother than my friends RX8 both paired with the SMC 1900. I do wish it had a built in switch but it's not a deal breaker...

Thank you
I have been running one. It's fairly large but fits fine. There is a little gap between center brace and side guard and plenty of room for the sensor wire. It is a very good ESC, smoother than Tekin. I'm just not a fan of all the wires hanging off of it.

I'm currently testing the REDS TXX ESC and have been very impressed by it. Once we verify the kinks are worked out this will be what you want. It's a clean setup and feels great on the track.

Almost finished with mine. Just need to build the shocks and install electronics. It's a nice piece of kit for sure. Every step has it's own bag which I love. Only issue I had was a incorrectly machined and bent screw. Shot an email to Tekno and they are sending me replacements. Everything went smoothly until I got to the turnbuckles. Man those turnbuckles are a #$%^&^ pain to do by hand. If you have a drill use it. Your hands will thank you.
