Welcome to the EB48.3 Wiki


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

Springs:
Low Grip Track:
TKR8772 Yellow Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8762 Grey Low Frequency Front Springs

Low to Medium Grip Track:
TKR8773 Orange Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8763 Black Low Frequency Front Springs

Medium to High Grip Track:
TKR8774 - Red Low Frequency Rear Springs and TKR8764 - Pink Low Frequency Front Springs

TKR5199B HRC Rear Hubs (L/R, CV or uni, EB/NB/ET/NT48/48.3) - Improves stability of the rear on mid to corner exit. Able to be on power earlier on corner exit.

TKR6146 - CNC Delrin Shock Cartridge Set

TiNi Shock Shafts
-TKR6017T (front)
-TKR6061T (rear)

This car is very durable. Here are the spare parts that I recommend you keep on hand:
TKR5020 Hinge Pins (inner, front/rear)
TKR6061T Rear Shock Shafts w/ TiNi Coating and TKR6017T Front Shock Shafts w/ TiNi Coating
TKR5286 Front Suspension Arms and TKR5184 Rear Suspension Arms
TKR5194 Spindle Carriers
TKR6009 Shock O-Ring and Bladder Set (for 2 shocks)

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.

Page 3 Step K-3
Put the screw in upside down so that the head of the screw is in the hex spot that's molded into the spindle. This will aid in clearance in full droop / full steering.

Page 12 Step I-2
Use no less than 4 shims on the steering spindle to limit steering throw. I actually just use one 2mm ball stud washer from my 10th scale stuff since each shim is .5mm.

Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here.

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.

The Bornhorst setup uses pink front springs, not the black. With the black springs I can get 28mm of front ride height with the spring adjuster all the way down to the bottom of the threads. With the stiffer pink springs, the adjusters sit about 3-4mm further up the threads for the same ride height.

PT racing oil. It's thinner than most other brands so take that into account. For example 7-7-3 in PT oil is closer to 10-10-5 in AE oil.

anyone have some time in w/ the universals? Seems like it will be a lot harder to clean with the inner bearing so far in the hub, leaving a lot more space for build up? Or does it stay pretty clear/clean?

Thinking of ordering a eb48.3, I was set on an eb48sl but I am leaning towards the .3 now. I am new to electric other than a 410.3 I just bought for the kids but I have kinda taken over. I was gonna go with the eb48sl so I could stay with the 2s batteries I had for the 410.3 but it seems as though a 4s system is the way to go with a buggy. My question is, will a hobbywing sct pro combo with the 2250 motor be enough to power a full sized 48.3. I will probably be ordering everything from fierce rc is the reason I'm curious about this combo

On 4S buggy systems, most will run the XR8 and a 1900 to 2100 motor.

PT told me Mugen visosity is about the same as theirs. However, I just runt the PT so I know I'm comparing apples to apples when looking at the team setups.

couple months and they seem fine, the bearing is deeper in the carrier so its protected better from the elements. I blew out at least four outer bearings in half the time ive ran since the swap, tekno did seem to have a bad run of bearings but to me it is better
