  • Quote: Do I need any spare parts for this truck what breaks the most
    I haven't had anything break yet (knock on wood) and it has been thru some hard landings. I did bend two rear stock shock towers (same problem I had on v1). Went with the carbon fiber and so far so good (got two weekends of racing on them). If you decide to get carbon fiber shock towers, you probably could just start with the rear. I've never bent a front one. I'm running an aluminum A hinge pin block. Structurely, thats all I've done. Its may be wise to get an extra set of a-arms, but I've never broken one v1 nor v3 and I learned to jump and race on v1. You may eventually want to get some springs for your shocks for tuning purposes. I do think the stock rear is too soft if you have bigger jumps or whoops.
  • Quote: broke my first thing on the SCT410.3... and it's a strange one... shock bladder! Somehow got a hole in the middle... was very small, hard to notice until you kind of stretched it out, but it was leaking a good amount of oil because of the hole... a bit messy and annoying, but at least the truck still actually drove pretty well for about 6 packs after I noticed the leak, just filled a little oil every once in a while.

    Question, I ran the stock vented setup, if i were running the emulsion setup I wouldn't have to deal with holes in bladders... think it's worth making the change for?

    Thanks.
    You definitely wont go through bladders that way. Ive never seen a bladder fail that way unless it was already defective from the factory. I personally don't like an emulsion build because I feel that the shocks become too inconsistent during a run. The first lap feels good, but seems too loose itself more as the rece goes on and the shocks heat up.

    Quote: anyone knows whether this kit shares the same body posts position as the traxxas slash 4x4?


    reason for asking this is because I intend to get a ford 150 svt body shell and it's designed for the traxxas (which requires extended body posts). but it doesn't seem to have pre-cut holes for body shells.
    Truck shares mounting holes with the SCTE. You may have to drill the body.

    It really is a tank, but what I most commonly see break is the front caster and steering block, and the front pin mount "A". Its not very common. I think in the 3 years ive run this truck, Ive seen maybe 2 of them break.

    Dog bone pin and the rest your good.
  • Can you change the driveshaft pins like the eb48 with the mugen pins?
  • Thanks for the info, I ordered the replacement bladders and I'll just chalk this one up to bad luck. The truck really is awesome, ordered an EB48.3 because I loved the SCT410.3 so much.
  • I was wondering if anybody had problems with the rear pins tighting up after i reamed them out seems they get grit in after a couple runs..have to pull out with pliers?
    Just seems rear end gets stiff .. ordered new graphite shock tower,the original got slightly bent...

    thanks jeff
    p.s. never had this with ver.1?
  • Under acceleration, the nose of the truck wants to come up. Does anobody else have this issue? Or is this suppose to happen ?

    It depends on how far up. Is it uncontrollable? I see this on all my cars. Its probably more noticeable on SCTs. You probably can play with droop, antisquat and shocks to reduce this.

    You mean you are pulling the front tires off the ground?? Youch, turn your power down. If you are just lightening up the front end and ballooning the front tires that's a different story. Increasing the center diff oil weight is an option. You could also try increasing rear anti-squat or reduce the front kick up.
  • Have you guys have any issue with the front bumper at all
  • Yes, I broke the front bumper in the first couple of races I had it. It came out from the bottom. So I used my old sct410 front bumper, works much better if you dont need the extra clearance. Overall I'm very disappointed in this version loved the original. Ass end too soft tried all kinds of pistons 8x1.3 6x1.5 10x1.2 springs oil changes.not sure at this point, I feel like just selling my .3. Not happy at all TEKNO.......help
  • Also, their are 4 other people at the track having same issues as I am.we are working together trying to find a decent setup.btw I'm outdoors low grip red dirt big doubles very fast track.any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll try anything at this point. Sorry dont mean to bash tekno.like I said in prev post.version 1 was awesome.
  • Quote: You may find this of helpful. If you already have a lightened chassis. ... I think you can select the drop down and ad additional .3 items.

    i don't quite get this website or the upgrade kit.

    isn't the kit supposed to upgrade the 410 to 410.3? so what's with the drop down menu parts?

    Can you post your setup and the issues you all are having? I'm pretty sure some people on here will have some ideas to try that hopefully will work.
  • Snarf, what is the truck doing that you need to correct? You say the rear end is too soft but that isn't a characteristic that makes you run slower laps. Is it blowing through the travel and chassis slapping on jump faces? Try moving the shock mounting position out on the tower. Maybe post a vid showing what it is doing.
