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.

Is that a good diff setup or is it too low? The reason I went thicker is because everybody has been saying you can push the buggy harder with thicker oils and it is more stable. I want to try 5-5-3 but from what I read it is too low for this buggy. I just don't want to waste my time changing the diff fluids if I don't need to but I do want more off power steering so the buggy doesn't push so hard around this one particular 180 turn after a high speed strait. The buggy turns fine around the rest of the track with 7-7-5.

I think tekno wanted the buggy to feel easier with this thin 5k oil

I run on a loose outdoor track with a hard packed base and is really dusty and rutted. Today was the first time it felt really good. I went 573 in the diffs. No sway bars and bottom of shocks in on A arm. Also shortest camber links front and rear. Double dot out rear toe ,3 degrees of camber all around. And also used the 48.2 10 degree blocks and spindles.
I no longer had to use the high bank turns to get a decent turn in, I was ducking and diving inside of everyone. This buggy needs allot of steering help on a slippery track and that setup gave me great turn in.

Ordered my EB48.3! Hopefully SMC doesn't have their shipment of 6500s delayed or I might cry...

What's the hit setup for a super mega ultra loose soft and hard pack mix track?

For me, it depends on the track. On higher grip tracks, I like 10-10-7 ptrc oil. However, my home track is very dusty so I prefer 7-7-5 or 7-7-4 ptrc.

Personally, I love the stability of the bug at 10-10-7 ptrc. I hated changing it out, but home track was too dusty and I had to. If it's handling great everywhere else, I would prob leave it as is and try a few diff ways of hitting the turn. Any other .3's there?

*****Posted this in the EB48SL thread, but it doesn't get near as much traffic as this thread, so figured I'd post it here as well, one additional comment for this thread, I wish my EB48.3 was a little lighter, be nice if it was a bit closer to 3200g*****

I weighed my buggies and just thought you guys might find it interesting.

EB48SL - HW XERUN pro SCT esc, Tekin 3300kv, 6500mah 3s vant lipo, DS1015 servo
EB48.3 - Tekin RX8G2, Tekin 2050kv T8i, Vant 6500mah 4s lipo, DS1015 servo

I'm interested in trying to get the SL up to 3200g, i'm switching to a Tekin Pro 4 HD 3000kv motor that will add 28g, so I think I'm down to needing 116g to reach 3200g. Any recommendations on what to use to add 116g?

Thanks.

I have 8-7-5 in my car right now and I like it. The 8 just makes it a little easier to drive. My NB48.3 has 7-7-5 in it.

I also have 37.5 AE front and rear with the 6x1.6 pistons, pink front, orange rear.

I'm running AE fluids in there at the moment but plan to switch to PT. Just have to put an order in.

I'd start 20. 21 if track is huge and 19 if it is tiny.

Completely new suspension geometry on the .3, along with convenience items like the split center diff (which can be added to the .2).
