Bob B 8/10/17 - Should I start with the kit setup?
The kit setup is a great place to start. One other option that many of us start with is Joe's rough track setup. You can find that setup here
In order to run it you need 3x2.1 pistons and 3x2.0 pistons. (They are marked on the sheet as 3.1 and 3.0).

Matt W 7/7/17 - What is overdrive and when should I use it?
The NB48.4 comes stock with a 12t pinion (TKR8152) and the 39t ring (TKR8151) in both the front and rear and the EB48.4 has a 12t pinion (TKR8152B) and the 40t ring (TKR8151B) in both the front and rear.

The two sets of gears are used to overdrive the front of the EBs or underdrive the rear of the NBs. If you have both vehicles and want to try underdrive it's as easy as swapping the front diff and pinion of the EB and the rear diff and pinion of the NB. Underdrive helps on very loose tracks, when you need more on power steering or if the rear of the car feels loose.

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.

Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here. Please be sure to try our recommended setup. It works very well on most tracks.

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.

I tried Lutz's setup last weekend and the car was better than stock setup for me. Large clay indoor track.

Box stock seems like the oil is light in the rear. I tried the car on a small tight indoor 1/10 scale track and I've run my other 1/8 scale buggy in there. The Tekno seemed to have less steering. I see some setup sheets where they remove the washer from the steering bump stop and also change the ride height (lower the front). I don't know if that is what is happening or if its the new akerman plate. Haven't had much time to mess with it. I figure once I get it on a bigger track I'll make a few changes. But that is what I felt on my initial drive.

I did change a few small things, setup was pretty much Joe's with the box oils.

Suspension was a little too stiff for that track but the car was still new so just wanted to break in the chassis a bit.

Very nice! Looks like she is handling pretty well on that bumpy track.

Looked decent, definitely too stiff. Good driving though despite it.

I have yet to upgrade any of my Tekno builds with a steel spur gear. What is the benefit of doing so in your opinion?
