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.

Don't know if this was addressed before. Has anyone used the 2mm offset wheel hubs yet? How would they affect a cars setup?

With the stock Tekno body or any body for that matter does anyone know what motor fan to use? It gets rather hot where I race so I have to gear and tune according, but I feel like that would help out as well.

Changing my rear links to #2 on tower and D on hub carrier with 0 camber helped me get more control last race and now have changed to 10,7,5 diff. Hopefully this will help bring it into control for my driving..

I run a Tekin RX8 / 1900kv motor combo with a 19t pinion. I don't run a fan on the esc or the motor and can run 10 minute mains in 100+ deg weather with no temp issues. I don't even have cooling holes cut in the body.

That's a perfectly ok temp. Worry when you get closer to 200 at the end of a 10 minute run, then look for binding in places.

I used them on the .2, but haven't played with them on the .3 at all. The concept is pretty straightforward. The wider the car is the more stable it will be at the cost of traction. So if you put the +2 hubs on it will slide around the corners more, but be more predictable and controllable. Where it really comes in handy is making one end of your car wider than the other.

Is it worth spending the money on TiNi shock shafts? Is there a noticeable difference in smoothness? My stock shafts are pretty dang smooth already

Not really. The stock shafts are really good, even better if you polish them. The Delrin bushings make a bigger difference than anything.

When the upper shock eye bushings wear out, which will be almost instantly, grab a set of the M2C delrin bushings. You'll get a lot more life out of them too.

I agree the best option is the delrin bushings if I had to choose one or the other.but I did both at the same time
