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.

Default Ride Height

Anybody running with 26mm ride height? If so, what kind of track and what size are the jumps? I'm thinking about going 26f/27r on my ride height.

I went 26mm/26mm. Track is big and loose but not bumpy, with one big jump and several medium sized. Haven't had a good go with it, but tomorrow is my first race so I will have a play and see how I go. I had a practice battery last week and didn't like the 27mm/29mm at all for a loose surface. I am thinking 26mm/27mm might be a go.
I'll report back after tomorrow. Hopefully I don't regret my decision to get this buggy.

Picture is too small to see, but the servo should be installed with the spine on the inside of the vehicle. Page 20 of the EB48.3 manual shows the install.

I however am not understanding the real concern question here. Are you concerned about fixing it yourself? Wrenching on your RC should be something you become comfortable with, so this should be something you tackle if it's done wrong. The only other thing I can think of, if the individual has it installed in the wrong direction, that makes you wonder what else they've done wrong or how good the build of the vehicle is.

And I found the link, and yes it absolutely is in the wrong direction. Looks like it's brand new, but I would definitely give it a good check before running it to make sure everything else is built right, including the diffs.

The servo does need to be turned around, but if it works, no big deal. Car looks good. Lots of tires and I think pics shows a cpl of clear bodies. I would personally like to see the chassis, but car looks like new so I'm betting all is good there. Is the 2000kv motor the truggy motor or a typo? Just wondering - some people use the truggy motor. All-in-all, it looks good.

Is he saying it's never been run? I think for everything he is offering, it's a good price, especially if he hasn't run it and he did a good job of building the kit.

Not really, that's going to put unnecessary strain on the system.

So you are saying that the servo should be turned around and it will perform better steering wise

The servo should be installed as it's detailed in the instructions yes.
