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.

This is my new buggy. First 1/8 buggy (I had a 1/18 before). I have only bashed this buggy so I can't wait to take it out to the track. Also this is my first paint job I've ever done. I'll have to post the pictures later

What parts have you guys broken or what parts should I stock up on if you haven't broken any parts because I have no part support in my area. Thanks.

Also does the 2050kv motor accelerate faster than the 1900kv motor?

Looks great Matt

These buggys are tough, I would say hingepins, Toe block inserts, maybe some shockshafts, arms dont really break just change them when worn. And the normal maintenance items like diff and shock orings and gaskets. Maybe a spur but set right their tough to,

Hope that helps

My local track is an outdoor, rough, medium traction track. The minimal testing (due to rain over the past 6 weeks) that I've done, made me feel that the Universals were an improvement over the CVA's with little to no other suspension changes.

2 1/2 hours north of me is Flowood R/C in Flowood, Mississippi: an indoor, relatively smooth, high speed, hard packed surface. There's a huge Tekno presence there, with some very fast local racers (both sponsored and not). To my knowledge, none of them have been running the Universals (just yet).

I've raced there twice with the Universals and practiced a third time where I wanted to go back to back (Universals to CVA's) to see the difference. Long story short, my top 5, 10 and 15 lap averages dropped just a little over 0.5 seconds going from Universals back to the CVA's. Track conditions changed very little (if at all) in between these 2 tests. No other suspension changes were made during this test. Just simply running a battery with Universals, then swapping them for CVA's the next battery. I was faster with the CVA's.

I'm not saying that I couldn't have made some other changes to quicken the car up on this track while running the Universal's. I simply chose the CVA's as the racers that I am chasing down have long been running CVA's and going plenty fast with them on this smooth, high speed surface.

I hope to do the same back to back testing back at my home outdoor track. Just can't catch a break in this weather pattern that we're experiencing down here.
I recently switched to the universals myself but have only had 1 night to try them before the track was shut down for January Jam.

I'm very close to stock setup, and my lap times did go up by a few tenths. However, my car felt more consistent and predictable.

As others said, the universals freed up the suspension and made the whole car feel softer. So I'm going to stick with them for now. I should be able to tune more with the shocks and sway bars.
