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!

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

am I right if you find someone parting out an EB48.4 you can just grab the belcranks and ackerman from it, but you dont' want the turnbuckles that would connect to the belcranks?

are the diff oils for the recommended setup PT Racing oil brand? If so, from what I recall AE brand need to go slightly softer right? Thinking 10-10-5 here using AE. Right now at 15-15-5.

I find PT oils to be slightly thinner. So 15-15-10 would be like 13-13-8. I'm just estimating. No facts. Just a feel thing.

Why is part number TKR8027 needed for the setup?

That setup also calls for the aluminum suspension hangers, like the ones on the EB48.3 instead of the included composite ones...

You do need the aluminum C block to match that setup, but the rest can still be composite.

Oh I didn't realize there was a difference. I've never used the plastic A,B,C,D blocks. My apologies.

When you run the aluminum emulsion caps, this stand off gives you a little more clearance from the shock tower. I've never tried the plastic caps so I can't say if you still need that extra clearance or not.

All in all, if you put on all of those parts and freshen up any worn parts on your truck (if needed of course), you essentially have an SCT410.3.5. Not quite a .4, but way more than a .3. This was my experience with the EB48.3 too.

If you are a serious SCT racer and race this truck, IMO these option parts are all must haves. If you aren't, then clearly you may not get the value out of them. Only you can make that call

The truck comes out of the box with plastic shock caps and work just fine with the included stand offs. The only difference is if you go to emulsion on the truck with the plastic caps is how the cap itself is prepared.

Correct, but if you initially prepped those shock caps as vented, you'll need new, with all the o-rings. Might be the cheaper way to go, but I haven't compared myself yet.

The stand offs are for the aluminum emulsion caps. They are not the same as the plastic. And personally I won't run plastic caps on anything that's bigger than a 10th scale buggy. It's a personal preference, so please, do as you feel is best for you.

new steering turnbuckles (or just cut 3mm off each end of stock ones. That's what I did)
LF springs (I think it was Orange and Yellow Front, Green Rear)
HRC rear Hubs

Once you do these things, you'll have a totally new truck. It's crazy how much these change it.
So 50mm turnbuckles are needed for the steering?
