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.

I don't know what they've changed the rules to for the FS forum now (used to be something like 50 posts and a month), but you're gonna love the Tekno once you get it!

Where is a good place to mount the rear shock for minimal bending because I don't want to buy another shock shaft soon

Does anybody know where I can get the FTW (snow designs) body? Cant seem to find it anywhere except hooliganRC and I have never heard of that place and I don't like buying from somewhere I haven't heard of. Unless maybe someone here buys from them and knows they are reputable?

You can bend/break about anything if your persistent enough Towers are strong as is everything else in this buggy but I'm not a basher so maybe don't beat it up quite like you do perhaps. Make no mistake these are a TOUGH buggy. Some guys are reporting some rear shock shafts bending and with what your doing may be a good idea to pick some up.

yeah I read that about the rear shocks. My solution is to use the shocks I kept from my hobao hyperstar ( I already put hyperstar shocks on the front on my mugen ! )

by the way, what is the lenght of the rear eb48.3 shocks ? hobao hyperstar are 129mm from eye to eye

The shock lengths on the Tekno are longer than other buggies as they are truggy length shocks. If memory serves the back is something like 137mm (not at my vehicle to measure right now).

You need to use both the older spindle and spindle carrier if you do this, as the newer .3 vehicles use a trailing design for this so the parts won't work together correctly unless you change both. That being said, yes, you can get more steering out of the old ones in some situations, with the side affect of being a slightly more darty or twitchy vehicle.

Back when the .3 was new, several folks went back to the old steering to get more. These days most everybody has gone back to the .3 parts as setups have gotten better.

Some tracks break ebuggy classes down, especially on bigger races. Sportsman is basically intermediate and Expert is more seasoned guys... You would run in whichever class you feel is appropriate for your skill level

I am thinking about going to a big race and the classes for ebuggy is sportsman, open, or pro. I would have about 3 months of experience and less than 10 races by the time of the race so should I race sportsman or open? And would sportsman be beginner and open be intermediate in that situation?

You would definitely want to start with Sportsman, more fun for you and the guys your competing against. Open will be advanced drivers up to the "sponsored" guys. Depending on the event and type of sponsorship, you may encounter "sponsored" drivers in the open class.

Most important thing to remember, have fun and enjoy yourself, after all we are grownups playing with really expensive "toys".
