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.

If you're steering is working different one way vs the other then you should make sure everything is on in the correct directions and especially that the ball ends aren't flipped on one side vs the other. It should go the same amount both directions. I'm assuming no servo issue/etc since this is during the build.
Thanks Poet.....Yes the steering works fine..just. Was just puzzled as to why they would use those values. Can't wait to finish this build!!!

I ran the crap out of mine all year on rough outdoor track. At a few points I was running 8 packs two days in a row each day.
I broke an Ackerman plate and wore out a rear pinion bearing. That's it! All year , hundreds of crashes and cartwheels. Tekno did a great job. I have reputation for running for hours on end and going home dirty but still running.

Only bad thing is my teknos ruined my thoughts about my other trucks that I thought were reliable. They aren't

Do some parts interchange between the new Tekno buggy and the new Shortcourse truck?

Yeah. If I had to guess, I would say almost 30%, but not sure about that.

Diffs except outdrives
Diff cases
SCT rear shocks and buggy front shocks
All internal shock parts are the same
Springs
Sway bars
Just to list a few

Awesome body. I had to trim the rear though as it was hitting on the mud guard screws.

I have an EB48.2 and want to slowly build it up to a 48.3. I thought I saw somewhere a list of parts that you can do without needing others from the .3. Anyone have this off the top of their head? Just want to upgrade it slowly over 2 or 3 parts orders.

I could buy that kit, but what I'm asking is can I get say the new arms and install those by themselves without any of the other add ons, and then keeping adding on piecemeal?

Add the trailing spindles and hubs if you want them . The .3 suspension blocks when your ready for them . The car is really different now. I have to give props to Pete at fierce , when I ordered , I did not add the new size bearings to my order and he promptly emailed me and made sure I didn't miss something . That's how you earn somebodies business right there !!
