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.

Question regarding the HRC hubs: are the team drivers using them in conjunction with rear diff housing riser, or without the riser? Thanks.

AFAIK, no team drivers are running the riser plate anymore.

My front driveshafts bent within 2 weeks of having my eb, and my nb bent one the first time out... I don't recall any crashes that would of caused it either. my sct however hasn't bent one yet, and that thing has had some nasty tumbles.. haha

so you guys run front brace only, and universals and dont have any issues with bending?

I've been running a Tekno EB48 since the very first version was released. Always with the front brace only. I have never bent a drive shaft. CVD or Universal.

the drive shaft is bent, but still works fine.... it doesn't make the car wobble or anything, but when you roll it you can see the shaft is bent... im not talking bent so much that it doesn't work, but it is bent. I want to try the universals, but i wanted to see if they were a little stronger first since they are kinda pricey

I wanted to know if they give any race advantages. So far I have learned "Made the car better through the bumps." You related they are pricy. I think i saw $50 a pair. I may try them as i run on a bumpy track. Im hoping for more feedback on them.

Jmcelroy42, easiest way to make camber is to cut the camber rods shorter. We typically remove 3-4 mm per side. Otherwise you can use our TKR5550 SCT camber rods which are shorter.

Matt, does the 1.8 vs 1.9 make that big of a difference?
