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.

So my 48.3 will arrive in a few days now and the building will start.
Do you guys suggest stock oils setup or something else? Can't find any team drivers setups.
I was driving Losi 3.0 this season and found 5/7/2 diffs to suit best with my driving style and track type. Will that work the same on Eb48.3?

Teknos page has driver setups listed in the support section.
Most Teknos seem to be happy with 7-7-5 for diff with others experimenting and finding what works for their area and tracks

Generally the team likes to start out with 775 as a base for any track they travel to. It's a pretty good starting setup for most drivers and it feels balanced.

However, most of the guys use PTRC fluids which does make a difference. 775 PTRC feels closer to 553 with Associated oils, and most likely varies with other brands as well. Just a good thing to keep in mind when looking at setup sheets

I've been wanting to swap to PT oils but haven't made the swap yet.
Thats the kind of information I was wondering about, thanks for mentioning it!
In AE oils I like 773 or 753

^^^ Sounds like you need the SL Buggy if running 2s.
Chances are you'll run into heat or thermal issues with 2s and a smaller motor like that.

You might be better off running a 1700 1/8 motor instead.

The Tekin Pro4 HD in 4300 KV will move it along just fine and the only over heating issues would be if you over or under gear it. I have mine geared 15\44 and after ten minutes of heavy throttle use it is temping at 145, well below what Tekin says to keep this motor at. This is geared for a small indoor clay track with pretty high bite, I might try a 14 tooth pinion as the buggy is rarely ever getting close to full throttle. If you are worried about heat you could add a can mounted fan and there is plenty of room to place one.

If you two have a clay track, I would seriously pick up a set of the Losi street tires, prep with some PB and try them out on your track. They are super gummy and the traction is almost too much for our prepped clay track, better than the Electrons so far and seem to not wear at all, only four packs so far through the buggy. I picked up one set and one of the tires is badly glued to the rim, I might pester Losi and see if they replace but they are so cheap I might pick up a couple sets and select out the best ones for racing and the rest for play.

Great suggestion right there Our local track is a toss up for the big buggies, there can be some dust but tires like the Prime or the Losi's you mentioned work when its wet. Otherwise Electrons are the ticket on our weird Midwest dirt.

I kept my .2 and I bought the .3 upgrades. So far I'm loving how it feels and reacts.
Plus at the time of the decision the market was flooded with people trying to sell .2s so prices were all over the place.
