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.

Thanks. They do look about the same size. I have several EC5 connectors and thought about using them.

I agree, XT60 is the best I've used. Doesn't melt, doesn't wear out very quickly, easy to separate, and super cheap.

If money wasn't an option, which servo would everyone use. I have always used the Hitec 7955(I'm a Hitec fan) but if there is a better servo that Hitec makes, I would be more than happy to spend a few more $$$.

What about something like this?

HSB-9380TH Ultra Torque, Brushless, Titanium Gear Servo

is it too much?

I know some of you may use a $40 servo, and I'm sure they're great, but that's not what I'm after.

Too much is better than not enough in my book, can't see it being a bad thing.

Steering is unreal and to the point it's recommended you run 3-4 washers to limit it.

Your towers are fine. They looked shorter in one picture. THey are the correct ones, no aftermarket ones available.

That is odd, though not the first one I have heard of that happening to. They may have had a batch of bearings with a few bad ones. All that I have heard of are rear hub bearings, too.

I use a tekno center diff and the dogbone is eating the outdrive quite fast !

They did have issues with bad outdrives earlier in the year they will replace them with pics and a proof of sale.
