Welcome to the EB410 Wiki page.

Basic Stats/Features:
  • Shaft drive (tapered AL for light weight and straightness)
  • Gear differentials (all 3)
  • Low Angle CVAs (with captured pins so no ejecting them!)
  • Durable stub axles with 12mm hexes and optional offset adjustments
  • Reverse bellcrank steering system
  • Quick access bulkheads (for easy diff maintenance and tuning)
  • Spllt center diff holder (for easy diff maintenance and tuning)
  • 8th scale style motor mount (for easy mesh adjustment)
  • 13mm big bore shocks
  • 3.5mm shock shafts
  • Droop screws

Servo Horns
Tekno included a plastic servo horn but also offers an aluminum one. This is highly recommended. Here's a list of servo horns that have been found to work:
Gearing:
Works out of the box for mod or 13.5.
  • Start mod gearing around 21t pinion
  • Start 13.5 gearing around 29t pinion with the stock spur (81tooth). If using a Tekin Spec R 13.5, start with a 24t pinion for medium sized indoor tracks.
  • Internal Gear Ratio: 2.5:1
  • For comparison:
  • B64 is 2.47:1
  • 22-4 is 2.4:1
  • YZ4 is 2.6:1
Wheels
  • B6/22/rb6 wheels direct fit
  • 22-4 front wheels direct fit
  • B64 front wheels will fit, but you need the +1 hexes (can use #TKR1654X, which is a +1mm hex)
  • 22 2wd front wheels will also fit, possibly a good option for carpet.

Setup Sheets and other documentation
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here. Please be sure to try our recommended setup. It works very well on most tracks.
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:
Aftermarket Upgrades:
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!


Build Tips:
  • When fastening the steering posts with a 5.5mm socket wrench, you can back space the socket with some nuts to help drive the post into the bulk head

  • Place an alcohol swab over metal threads and drive screws through the swab to clean both sides of threads before applying thread lock

  • Use a metallic marker to indicate what fluids you have filled in your diffs for easy identification

  • Apply thin layer of grease on crown gears to help hold gaskets in place for easy hole alignment

  • Bags F and H have 2 different size set screws, be sure to use the smaller 3x3mm screws for the hexes or you may run into problems installing wheels over the hex if you use the longer 3x4mm screws
  • To make is easier to slip the o-rings on the shock cap bleeder screws, apply a drop of shock oil and slip them over a 1.5mm hex bit, then line up the bit with the screw and transfer the o-ring over using fingernails or needle nose pliers
  • Use HoBao Hyper10 3x35mm hinge pins for the rear arms
  • pinch+rotate shock caps in 17mm hex wrench to improve roundness

shorties have become pretty standard, so curious what they go with.

12mm hexes for sure. If you check out IFMAR's rules, there's an outline for standard wheel dimensions. It looks like all the manufacturer's are heading toward that.

I really look forward to this so I can easily go back to being 4wd only, even during indoor season, when running multiple classes.

At one point I was a 4wd only kind of guy too. I'd be game for that depending on if an entry point was offered for 4wd like 13.5 spec and I'd pickup vehicles for the kids too.

Will the EB410 look into doing 2 variants of the vehicle for carpet and dirt? Seems like a slipper setup is desired for carpet and gear diff for dirt from what I am hearing for other vehicles. If you could make the vehicle out of the box with both options that would be excellent.

Yeah, that probably wouldn't work too well. I know a few guys have tried turning a few 4wd's into 2wd and they were not even close to competitive in 2wd. Super hard to drive considering they were not designed to be that way...

to do that I would think you need to be on really high traction. Durango's DEX210F basically looks like the dex410v5 just in 2wd mode. It was super fast on carpet.

I hope they have same battery dimensions as EB48.3 or SCT410.3 or ET48.3...
I own three of Tekno Vehicles and I am very happy that parts are all interchangeable... one type of battery can be used all around...
Only thing was SCT410.3 had shorter battery strap compared to the 8th scale vehicles.

Please allow EB410 to have same battery dimensions as the previous vehicles

When you look at all the 4w buggies out there, they are all tight configurations and using 2s Shorty packs.

Trying to use a full size 2s lipo would not work with the layout of the chassis, length of the chassis and width.

I'll be very curious to see how they do there own take on this buggy. Seems like al ot of the designs are converging on one particular layout. Biggest diff I see is on how durango did their servo layout (centered) versus others like xray (off to side).
