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 will give it a shot with cityblocks this weekend and see how it goes!
I use that setup with 7-7-5, and works for my driving.

48.4 rack, I also tried it before the .4 rack came out and had no luck.... I'm not sure if its better indoors, but at my track it was awful compared to 7/7/5 or 5/5/5. Anyone else from Florida try 15/15/10?

Hey guys- I recently bought my first Tekno car, the EB410. I'm so impressed by Tekno, I wanted to get rid of my TLR SCT and replace it with the SCT410.3. I heard this thing is a tank and wanted price it out. What are the MUST have upgrades if any? I also noticed its on sale on most sites. Are they making a new SCT? Thanks

It is probably here, but I'm lost. What wheels are good? Indoor clay? Ones that will not hit, and will hold up?

The AL "A block" (front most hinge pin holder) and what every Tekno needs, an AL servo horn. Several other upgrades are nice, but not required for most people.

Many wheels work, you can find much of the info in the wiki at the start of this thread. Probably the best ones are the DE Speedline wheels, as they're made for the heavier vehicles like today's 4wd SCs. The best tires to put on that for indoor clay will vary depending on the clay. Ask the fast folks that are running there what they're using, and use the same thing.

If its anything like the buggy. You will want to ditch the shock cap bushes and use fuel tube. Alloy servo horn. Delrin shock guides and the extended spring perches. You will want to replace the plastic hinge pin carriers (abcd blocks) with the alloy blocks. From memory the tekno sct has issues with the front hubs because of the steer stop screw set up. So be careful of that.

Shock cap bushes? Bushings? Fuel tubing for bushings? Please elaborate. I'm interested.

The upper shock cap bushings are horrible. Theyre too hard, and they constanly flog the caps out (they do on the buggy because of the metal caps). Even with the m2c bushes (delrin), the caps flog. Caps must be too soft also. You use fuel tube as the cap insert. It allows smooth shock movement and doesnt cause the shock caps to flog out. You cut a small section to fit the stand off, fit the shock onto it and then fit your nut. Dont over tension as you will cause binding. Works a treat. After changing about 6 sets of shock caps in a short period of time, i went to fuel tube and didnt need to change another set. Alot of people do it. Alot cheaper than buying shock bushes also.

Sometimes my job requires I step out of the hobby for a few months and up to a year.

Two things I never part with: my tools and my Tekno's. Build your SCT410 and you'll remember this post.

What exact fuel tubing type and size? This issue is happening to me now. I'd rather use something that lasts. My shock bushings are really sloppy right now.

I use dubro tubing. Worked a treat. You will never go back to the Tekno bushes or m2c after doing it.
