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 had the same problem until I moved the camber length in on the front wheel side. This gave me a lot more steering to where I was over steering. I calmed it down by moving the shocks one hole out on the shock tower. This is assuming stock setup.

Finally got another race day on the Tekno .2-3 with the upgrades. Last time I had a lot of push issues with it in some of the tight turns and 180s and not the best finish.

This time I out I switched to the Lutz Enats setup but using 7-7-5 in the diffs instead and also Green fronts and Yellow Rears. The car felt super planted and tons of steering. I was able to keep tight lines in the 180s and hammer thru the sweepers no problem. I could drive in and out of the corners a little harder and faster.

Default A arm wear.

Is anybody getting somewhere like this on there a arm from the screw that secures the rod to the steering knuckle of the hub? I'm going to clearance it with a dremel just curious if anybody else has seen this.

Yes. Then I limited my travel so my shock length is the same as the Lutz set up. No more rubbing.

Also you can put more washers under the head of the screw to limit how much of the screw hangs down below the nut. That's what I did as well as slightly limiting droop by 1mm

It's too much droop. Gotta take some out and no more rubbing.

Lutz's setup from Amain.com labor day race... Thinking about trying this setup out, even though the track i run on is more loose than Amain. What do you think?

This setup has been getting great reviews and is apparently possible on both the EB48.3 and NB48.3

I plan to give it a try as I've made quite a few adjustments to both vehicles already. Worth looking into if you're interested.

+1 This is a very good setup. Great base to start with.

Yea same boat here with only couple races left for Outdoors. I'm definitely happy with the Lutz Enats setup, so already filled out my setup sheet for next year.

It will be interesting to see what changes I need to make for Indoors in a few weeks.

This looks like it is for high traction. I am looking for a good starting point or base set up for low to mid traction, dusty track that is outdoors. I am having a mid corner push. I am not the only one, another local driver and some people on line are having the same issue.

^^^^ Try the Lutz Enats setup, the buggy felt planted and tons of steering.

+1 Or can use a shorter screw, forget the exact length.

Agreed. Easiest is to just use a different screw or dremmel a small portion off quick. No need to change your setup to accommodate this change.
