Welcome to the SCT410.3 Wiki!

In order to run the recommended team setup, you need the following optional parts:

TKR8104 .4 bellcranks

You also need the Aluminum C Block (others can stay composite)

What option parts should I consider buying with a new kit?
None are required but we recommend the following:

TKR5545B HRC Rear Hubs (L/R, CV or uni, SCT.3/SL) - Improves stability of the rear on mid to corner exit. Allows harder acceleration on corner exit.

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
16PC Metric Bit Set Metric Sizes 2.00 to 3.00 MM.

One of the best handling bodies we've found is Losi Racing Hi Performance Pre-Cut Body, TLR8061. The other one we like is the JConcepts Illuzion Hi Flow. There are two versions of that , standard and lightweight, JCO0222 and JCO0222L. Jconcepts also has a second gen of the High Flow and I've yet to run it, but given how good the original is it's a safe bet it's as good or better.

Thanks Matthew, I looked at both of the JC bodies but newer one looks to not have as many cutouts as the 0222 body.
Anyone out there running the JC part number 0282 HF2 SCT Body (Rivkins paint scheme)
Heard the LOSI bodies do not last long at all! My JC 0222 lasted forever! Any SC body does not last too long anyway

I added quite a bit of weight by adding all of the aluminum Hinge Pin Holders (A B C D) and aluminum motor mount, and the aluminum vented shock caps everything else is stock plastics except ackerman arm forgot about that one. Should I try to lighten up elsewhere or run as it is?

Weight is not an issue with this truck... run it like you stole it !!!!

Definitely get the aluminum ackermann plate, it's a lot more durable and helps the truck hold it's line better in high speed sweepers. As far as weight reduction, that's more of a personal preference thing. Some guys like a very light and reactive truck, others like a heavier more planted feel.
If you do plan to reduce weight there's lots of things to do. Lightweight body for sure, various aluminum/titanium screws and aluminum nuts are easy items and can add up to a lot. Picking the lightest motor, esc, rx, and servo can help a lot. Running short wires and as lightweight of a battery that you feel comfortable with helps also. There are titanium upper shock mounts and titanium lower shock screws. Carbon towers, titanium turnbuckles (slightly shorter than kit length for even more weight reduction) and titanium hingepins. The mudguards can be shaved down a lot, as can the front and rear bumpers, you can even omit the rear bumper if your track is ok with it.

I did get the ackerman plate in aluminum for the .4 mods. My old original truck had the carbon towers now the front is available but the rear is DC'd. I don't think I'll do anymore to it, I do like a little heavier truck to not get pushed around. Maybe on indoor clay like the superlite sct conversions but htis is an outdoor 1/8 scale big track truck!
I only thought about lightening the side plastic guards by removing plastic where the 2nd servo option goes and maybe some of the bumpers

Excuse the dumb question, but that would make them. 16mm shock?

I'm trying to buy some different color shock spring adjusters

As the previous post states, 16mm inside diameter is the bore. The bore is what makes them 16mm. The below was copied from the detailed description of the 410.3 off Tekno's website.

Shocks:
  • 16mm bore hard anodized shocks Biggest-in-class!
  • 4mm 7075 aluminum shock towers are standard.
  • Innovative conical piston design (not just tapered) provides varied compression and rebound rates.
  • Fully adjustable long travel suspension geometry maximizes stability and traction while providing superior cornering and on-power steering.
  • CNC aluminum threaded shock bodies.
  • 4mm hardened steel polished shafts.
  • Triple guide design for true consistent shaft action.
  • Options for vented cap, emulsion, or standard shock configurations out of the box.
  • Optional springs and sway bars available.

one more question on the .4 steering update, about the washers when building, put the washers like the setup sheet says or build it like the eb48.4 manual shows it?
