I can't for the life of me figure out these pill placements and what they do. It just doesn't register.

What combination are you using for 1 degree antiquat?

Thanks in advance.

If you use the center pills in the A and B block you get 10 of kickup and no arm sweep. If you use the center pills in the aluminum C and D blocks you get 3 of toe in and 2 of antisquat. To get 1 of antisquat we typically go to center dot down on the C block. Alternatively you can go to double dot down on the C block and double dot up on the D (this should keep your roll center is the same location as running center center), or you go to center dot up on the D block which also slightly raises your roll center. The plastic C block moves the pills up one degree so center C / center D would give you 3 of toe and 3 of antisquat.
Basically, you need to just remember what the center dot pills give you then add or subtract degrees based on what pills you change to. Here's a chart showing all the possible pill locations -

Body question, after this weekend my 410.3 ran amazing. I need to tweak her a lil bit but she was just plain insane. My question is, are there any other body options for this? I would entertain anything but the SCT body, I was curious about a truggy body or even a buggy body. Our 1/10 class is sort of open to SCT's and 4WD 1/10's, sort of a free for all. But our 1/8's and 1/10 2WD's are legit. Any thoughts?

Any body for the Team Associated, Losi, and Slash 44 will fit the Tekno SCT410 with minor changes to the body hole locations. The only direct fit body is the Losi SCTE body and it come pre-cut and the body post holes already reamed out.

All of these bodies

8th scale buggy body. This basically turns it into a eb48sl

Thank you.....I like the idea of that also. I had a body lying around for my 22T I fit today, I ordered the front bumper, wing and wing mount for it. Thought about doing the 17mm hub kit and going buggy tires. Like I mentioned this is a balls out class we run for fun, anything 1/10 4WD goes. lol. Thanks again

so heres another body question, the 410.3 sores threw the air like an acrobat and sticks the landing like an Olympic Gymnast, if I did decide to change to a buggy body (like the idea) will this change the characteristics of the way she handles and jumps?

I would say it will jump even better. Big SCT bodies don't do much for airborne aerodynamics.

I do believe she may, but for some reason that big turtle shell sores over the triple as smooth as my TLR 4.0, I'd almost say with a slight advantage to the 410.3. I have everything on order so I'll try the buggy body first.

That is great that it is jumping so well for you. I have an EB48 and it jumps great. It does have the wing though, that helps I'm sure.

I'm going to put the wing on and run it too, I'm actually going to drop my 4.0 body on it and see if she can handle running with the 8's lol.

If you are going to be running in the 1/8 class and have wheels/tires, I would suggest getting these-
http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5570-...gy-width-2pcs/
They allow you to run 1/8 wheels which are stronger and it brings the buggy to proper 1/8 width. And the axles are much stronger
