Default Tekin removal

Its a fan boy thing. Waaaa I want Tekin tattooed on my scrotum. Who cares if he removed Tekin. His thread. His prerogative. These Tekin sluts are as bad as the MaxAmps lovers club.

I gotta say it surprises me that Salad would pull the tekin stuff off as it's been on the front page forever ago. Now he's promoting Viper (and that is fine with me). I love hearing about all new products. But come on Salad you ONLY took tekin off the front page and no one else. That to me is a little biased. If I am brand new and reading the first page I would like to know all my options. We all know tekin makes damn good products and they should be on the front page.

Now I could care less as I know what's good and I may try viper products. But now it feels like you are "advertising/selling" it to me (instead of letting the products speak for themselves).

Just the .02

So i painted my clear stock body today but only got the base coat on, It's Orange Base coat and red design with clear or white windows haven't figured out what will look better yet. I did it with R/C spray paint.

Question is i use masking tape to make my design but it like leaked through some pots and on one two parts of the body the paint didnt stick and just make bubble spots. I didn't prep the body at all, I think maybe it was from my fingers touching it but I didnt touch some of these spots.


Also what do the Shock Stand Offs in the TLR kit do exactly. I'm waiting on my TLR kit to come from Nitrohouse or w.e its called. I looked online but didnt find any information. Is it the part that goes into the lower arm on all the shocks?

good point. i will keep an eye on that. hard to see in that picture but the wires are pretty short with no flop or play in them to move around.

i didn't PREP the body is the reason for your troubles...

the shells are injection plastic molding....
so there is a ton of residue left behind from that process...At the very mininum...you should wash it with soap and water and dry it well before painting.....still might get issues.......

when i do paint one....after the WINDOW masking is applied...i use a steel wool scrubber on it....It makes the paint stick at Ton better....Oh,you have to wash it after because of the fine metal particals left behind from doing that.....

Paint should do alot better...

Some painters wipe them out with chemicals......


on masking....the bodys have so many lines .....it is hard to use regular tape....you should use a painters grade tape......still might bleed....
best cure for this is ...Liquid Mask.......3 coats of that stuff...no bleeding....best of all is draw on the outside to get what you want then trace on the underside with a blade......peel and pain as needed......

GoodLuck!

P.S.....where it leaked.....take a Q-Tip with some denatured alcohol.....small amount needed.......dont soak it ,just a little on the end......and you will be able to cleanup those Bleeders a bit.....carefull not to be to aggressive with it...lol!...

If you do a good job of soldering the wires should be ok...

I have to say that the last few pages this thread has taken a sad turn... Lets just try to get this train back on the tracks...

The first page is just options for this truck, from what I hear it is a great truck box stock and the TLR tuning kit makes it bullet proof. As with all other kits, the electronics are your choice... That being said I will go with the old standbye for myself, MMP/550 4.5t and go from there... If anything has to change I will throw an RX8 and a Pro4 in it...

I'm not sponsored by anybody but IMHO Tekin has been the best for me! Also IMHO Viper is a new company and I will keep them on my radar but I really think their stuff isn't priced competitively enough for a new company...

But that's just my opnion...

This is, after all, the official TEN-SCTE thread and not a Viper sales thread.
he works for viper why would he support his single biggest competition?

so you are gonna not buy what appears to be an awesome systme because they dont want to support there direct competion?
