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 was able to run my .4 for the second time last night at an indoor medium sized track. My first outing was just trying to adjust to the car (coming from a Losi 3.0). I was working on dialing in the car a bit more last night and spent some time ahead of getting on the track setting camber, ride height, etc. I was still struggling to find off power steering (diff fluid is 775). I changed my ride height to 22/28 (was at 26/29) and that alone brought a whole lot more off power steering. After that change I felt allot more comfortable running the car into the corners deeper and faster...last night was the best I have felt with any Escale buggy yet. I am no pro by any means and just enjoy hanging out with some good friends and have fun doing this. Can't wait til next time!!!
Seeings as you're from Dover, I'm guessing the track you're talking about is NEO in Hartville? Hopefully I'll get a chance to try out my new .4 next sat for the 1st time. Interested to see how it feels to drive a diff brand after all these yrs.

That would be the one. We just started going there this year...I bought my Losi 3.0 late summer so I am still pretty green about most of this stuff. The new layout is the best of the 3 I have driven on IMO. They do a great job up there!

Without a doubt not the 1258tg.

The stats on the s6280 look decent at 7.4v. I have no direct experience with that servo though.

SC-1258 does not have anywhere near enough torque for 1/8 scale.

I think I have a 1258 in mine, been there for 2 years. Never had any problem needing more torque. Not saying I would recommend it, but it has worked well for me.

I have been running the S6280 in my .3 and i love it. I run mine on 7.4 and it has plenty of power and it is smooth when cornering.

That would be 7.4 volts. You'd either need an esc capable of 7 4v on the BEC or have an external rx lipo battery

I recommend this one for a little more. It has an adjustable bec so you can run 7.4v to the servo.

Yeah although you would be limited to 6v which the servo is capable of. But it would benefit from a higher voltage in the future.

What is the benefit of running it at 7.4v?
