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.

fiercercsolutions also stocks them. Had a nice sale going on too.

I bought a bunch I think last year as they had a sale where they were willing to match cost to cost with AE oils, so a 2 oz bottle or whatever the size was came in at $2.50, so they did the 2oz units at 2.50 and the 5oz ones at 5.00 . I should have picked up the diff fluids too. Not liking AEs twist caps as they keep breaking.

I read through the thread and believe I'll start with the wicked weekend setup, but I was confused, are people using the eb or nb set?

Yes The NB setup actually works on the NB and EB pretty well.

Joe's AMS setups are also posted now, so worth looking at that too.

Default Motor Questions

Ive been waiting for months for this 1900kv to come in stock on hobby king and it seems it never will

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...or_1900KV.html


As a result would this one work with the 150a? Im guessing no because its sensorless

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...or_1900KV.html


This is the ESC I already bought

on the cheap, the SMC 1900kv motor works quite well.

That esc can drive sensorless motors as well so they will work together. I would get the SMC motor though; the wires on that small hobbyking are quite stiff and hard to work with.

My center diff after this last race has lighty dusted the area with a moist dirty ring. All my diffs seem to leave a moist dirt ring around them or on components. To me it seems they may leak and if so why or what am I doing wrong? If not is this normal or is there a way to fix?
If normal and not a big deal, thanks for your time and have a good day..

For me its normal on a build/rebuild (some oil gets on outside). I clean it up and after a couple of race days, I usually don't see it anymore.

Default Shock bladders

Shock bladders!?!?!? Has anyone or does anyone know if other shock bladders work for the eb48.3? I'm trying to stock up on bladders cause they rip or get big after a few changes and don't seal. So instead of getting the tekno one that comes as a rebuild kit, I just want the bladders, but unfortunately they don't sell those alone. I'm thinking other 1/8th bladders would work. Because I see other companies sell like 8 packs for like 6 bucks vs 2 and rebuild kit for like 9 bucks.

Thanks

I figured it was normal but thought I would ask. I did think I cleaned it up good tho so shocked to even see it.
