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.

Thanks, running a Savoy 1258TG in my 410.3, overall been happy. What should I run on the EB48.3? Running Tekin RX8 Gen 2, so it should handle power hungry servos.

There will be many recommendations on servos but I run the Savox 1268 in both my buggy and truggy and have been more than happy. The performance is great on 7.4V but only decent on 6V so crank up the BEC on that Tekin.

get the Tekno al. servo horn.that should really be the only upgrade you will need.

the tekin gen2 esc and 1900kv motor is used the most.

Ordered the Savox 1283SG for the buggy. I figured this would be the best for what I'm looking to do.

Checked out SMC batteries. Price is half the Protek at Amain. The only problem is what connectors should I be running?? My 410.3 runs 4mm bullets and I would like to standardize them. From what I understand the SCT needs the best connectors as possible because of the amp draw while the 1/8 ebuggies can get by with less?? Any thoughts?

Most run Deans on there buggies, I too have bullets on my 410.3 and yes there is ALOT of amp draw on a heavy 4wd SCT with a 2s setup.

550 size motors continuously generates maximum power around1000 watts while buggy motors reach around 1300 watts(guessing from neu motor chart). Since buggies use 4s lipo compared to 2s lipo in sct, amp draw will be significantly lower in theory.

Deans really work fine in either.
