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.

I did mods to my 48.2 to get as close as I could to the .3 from what we knew of it and it made the car more stable for sure. This new package is going to be SWEET for sure!

Thinking this going to be my new buggy.
I've heard that the Tekno buggies have great wear characteristics... This accurate??
Any weak ppints that need upgrading out of the box???

The only thing needed is a metal servo horn. The Hot Bodies servo horns have the best fit. The cars do indeed have great wear characteristics.

Hoping and praying my local shop can get in on the initial preorders. I have a Tekin RX8 Gen 2 and matching 1900 kv motor waiting. I just need a good servo and advice on which 4S batteries. Never ventured outside of my 2S world.

Smc and promatch both have quality 4s packs at good prices.

What mah should I shoot for. I like to typically have 2 practice batteries and a race battery. Let me know if that's too many batteries for 4S, not sure if that's overkill.

I can get by with 4600mah. Most will run a minimum of 5000. Smc has 6500 and 6700's right now. Promatch has 6000 and 6500's. If you go with the 6500's you will have plenty of battery if you ever get an e truggy down the line.

I have 2 packs for each of my cars, but if I would only run one class I would have 3.

I'm getting this as my first ebuggy I was wondering what are the essential spares/upgrades needed and if anyone can advise on a good 1/8 ESC/ motor combo as I've only ever ran electric 1/10 touring cars any advice/ help would be great
