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.

The old steering somewhat prevented hard driving and confidence, but this update makes a very positive difference.

Most brands don't change their steering feel, but I'm glad tekno is willing to make changes for the better.

Other than the ackerman plate, steering bellcrank and two 3x10mm screws, cutting out extra space in the body for the new steering needs to be done. I'd recommend getting shorter turnbuckles because I have them as tight as possible without digging into the pivitballs, yet still getting toe in.
Do you have a part number on the shorter turnbuckles ?

There is another thread for the .4. There is no affordable way to go from the .2-> the .4. If you'd like to upgrade to the .3, which is still a very good car, then here is a package

http://fiercercsolutions.com/Tekno-E...kit-FRC010.htm

Add in the .4 steering stuff, and I think you'd be happy.

I just found the official .4 site
I DO NOT have time to read anything but it might be more feasible to
buy The New 48.4
My 48.2 is only 1 spring season old with TONS of parts!

Good question. I still have my .2 as well and may post it on here for sale. Probably ask $200obo(roller) as I have spare parts as well.

If you race any indoor, the .2 is an awesome indoor buggy if you lighten it up with a PRO4HD 1850 or T8i 1950 motor and the 4500/3600 Mah SMC 4s batteries. aluminum hubs, SCT410 center driveline and or carbon towers and you start to get a nice advantage.

In the process of installing the new Ackerman plate and bell cranks on the .3, what is the recommended starting setup for the ackerman? Are the newer setups on the tekno site with the new plate or old? I know it's probably been asked but I couldn't find the info.

The middle hole is the recommended hole to start with on the new ackerman bar. I don't believe the new bar was out at the time the setups came out, but I still would follow them if that's what you wanted to try out.

The .4's use tkr5050. Wish they would have just came out with a new part because it's a little thinner, the mark faces the opposite direction of all the other turnbuckles and it's from the 1st gen of the sct.

EB48.3 to EB48.4 upgrade.pdfThis Spreadsheet may help those thinking to upgrade to the .4 or parts thereof. Prices are correct at time of post and not necessary the best deal available. But will give you a good estimate. Sorry could not get the xls spreadsheet to load just the pdf.
