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.

How do you guys find the narrow chassis of the Tekno when the track gets rough. Do you find it as stable as some of the wider chassis buggies?

That's the beauty of the shocks. I have never been able to push a buggy so hard.

No fear of rough conditions, the tekno handles it like a champ.
Especially with the .3

Just watch how you put the wires in. A lot of people (like me) went with the shortest path to wire, but want to make sure you have plenty of slack for flex. Also make it easier to work on stuff when you can pull the motor out and have some slack vs. having to solder off the wires every time.

Is it just me or are the spring part numbers from the .2 to the .3 the same part numbers on the tekno site?
I'm looking for red rear springs for the .3

Correct. Longer shocks, but same spring offerings.

Does the nitro buggy and e buggy drive the same or does it feel like your driving two totally different cars.

I have the same setup on both my cars (Bornhorst) and they feel very similar to me.

I haven't driven both back to back, but I have tried a nitro, and I have to say. The throttle and how you drive a nitro is different. I could definitely get used to it.

But where people seem to like Joe's NB.3 setup for both, I can only imagine they would handle the same.

Default steering stop screws

I installed the steering stop screws in my buggy with 3 washers as recommended and it looks like they will not do anything. With max steering input the screw is about 5mm from touching the spindle carrier.
Has anyone else noticed this?

You have something off on your setup. Either your end points in the radio are limiting the servo throw or you have a mechanical setup problem. In my 48.3 with an MKS servo, I can move way past the stops if they were not installed. I had to use end point adjustment to reduce the throw both sides of center.

Make sure you're setting your end points while the vehicle is on the ground. If you have a lot of droop on the stand it can stick some. If you have set end points while in the air, then you may just not be getting full throw while on the ground. You should be able to hit the stop location even without any stops in.

If you can't get there, or the servo seems to want to keep pushing but it can't...pull the servo horn off and use your fingers to push the steering connecting link and see if there's full throw then. If there is full throw, something is probably up with the servo or it wasn't centered when installed. If still isn't full throw, check the mechanical linkages and servo saver to see where your issue may be.
