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.

The single best thing I did to my .2 to settle it down and they made a huge difference. Run them on the rear, and its a pretty quick change.


Try either 2mm or 3mm if you find them. I don't run them on my .3 all the time , but they are in the box for those days when I just cannot get my shiz straight.

Full disclaimer : Your results may vary ....
Settle down? Do you have 4 washers in each steering limiter? Also Tekno has a set as well... http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5071c...et-wpins-2pcs/

I just ordered my setup, I'm re-equipping after being away from the hobby for a bit, and wanted to ask what size packs you guys are choosing for mains in the 8-10 minute range? Mostly running on medium to large outdoor tracks.

Looking at Lutz's setup sheet and he's running a 5000mah pack.

Cheers!

Springs, etc., Bornhorst's NB48.3 setup for wicked seems to be the starting point - pint front and red rear I think with 425f and 475r ptrc oil.

I use the MIP and Hudy hex bits and a Lowe's handle or small electric screw driver. Tekno shock tool and Lowe's Kobalt nut drivers. Needle nose pliers and Tekno or Hudy turnbuckle wrenches. 17mm wheel wrench. I have some other tools in the box, but these are my main ones.

Hey guys I am about to buy one of these buggies and I was wondering if it mattered which way the servo was on because the one I'm looking at has the knob on the right. I just want to know if it will effect anything or is it fine.

5000 should work on 4S. I have a 5200 and 6500 from SMC just because I wanted to see if there was much of a diff between 60C and 70C. I can't tell a diff.

How much run time do you get with the 6500 and what electronics are you running?

Honestly, I don't know. I only have two race days on buggy and other than a couple of quick practice sessions before the heats begin, I haven't had a chance to practice and see how long I can run. I'm using a Tekin RX8 Gen2 and Tekin T8 1900kv. I wish it was summer so I could practice.

I want to say after 10m main, 2/3 warmup laps included, the 6500 comes off around storage voltage, maybe a little less, but still in the 3.8x per cell range.

I get close to 15+minutes plus on a medium sized track.....but they are two separate practice runs .....not one straight

I've ran a 5000 at fear farm and hit Lvc. 5200-5800is ideal due to weight balance
