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.

As long as they are the standard size 2s they should work. Tekno's use two horizontal straps then one vertical so as the batteries put together are about the size of a 4s pack you can make it work.

Those are the ones i've used for a size reference

I posted in the original eb48 thread about pushing. I run on a hard dusty track and just can't get enough front traction to make tight turns. I gotta slow wAy down and walk it around the turn till it's straight. My sct410.3 turns on a dime on the same track with same tires. I still say the new front suspension geometry doesn't allow enough weight transfer on loose tracks. It's to stiff when the suspension gets into it's compression.

You guys that are haviing pushing issues how many bump steer washers are you running inner and outer? Sometimes increasing bump steer will help mid corner push. I noticed on Lutz's buggy he wasn't running any washers. Maybe something to look at.

Just noticed on his latest setup he runs 1 washer on rack and 0 on outer.

I don't know for sure if it'll fit as they're using the longer clutch bell whereas our was using the shorter 3 shoe style clutchbell. It should fit, but again, I'm not sure.

other than just having to flip your diff i don't know. they are not out yet. i was told mid of sept. so we'll just have to wait and see. but don't see any other reason it wouldn't work.

I was having the same problem with my truggy,another driver helped me and I changed to a 2.3mm sway bar up front and a 2.8 in the rear. On the truggy I like to let the back end swing around to get the front pointed straight. This helped plant the front and let the rear move a little.
