Welcome to the ET410 Wiki page.

  • 95% parts compatibility with the EB410 4WD 1/10th scale buggy.
  • Updated 3mm 7075 CNC chassis and revised A and B hinge pin braces.
  • 13mm hard anodized threaded shocks with locking spring perches.
  • New 32 pitch spur gear for ultimate durability
  • 3.5mm shock shafts with revised dual guide x-ring cartridge.
  • 7075 CNC machined adjustable hinge pin brace system.
  • Three high volume fluid-filled adjustable differentials.
  • Lightweight 7075 tapered center driveshafts.
  • Quick access to differentials and maintenance friendly layout.
  • Captured CVA front and rear driveshafts with heavy duty 6mm stub axles.
  • Fully ball raced reverse bellcrank steering system.
  • Uses 1/10th AE Offset Stadium Truck or Traxxas Slash Short Course offset wheels.
For you guys all discussing what power plant to run, I would take note of the following statement from Matt W.

Matt - Probably would recommend a 10.5 for something similar to 13.5 in a buggy. I personally run a 6.5 in it and itís pretty fast. Pro4 4600 will run in it but it has a lot of power and will need to be turned down in the esc.

For me the question is, what will be the best powertrain setup?

My question is where does this fit? Trying to build a class? Basher? Outdoor mini truggy?

If I had to speculate... I think they may be building a class.

Yep. Like mentioned before, I'm sure my local track will make a class. No doubt a few guys will be buying these up, so shouldn't be a problem at all, for us.

I would like to think they will follow the existing class rules for Stadium Truck, years ago the HoBao Hyper 10TT was a popular class, and I can see these being a direct competitor:

Do we have any guess at all as to when this will be out? Will it have a stronger chassis than The EB?

I am thinking Tekno will probably look into anything that they saw that could be improved on the EB410 to add that to the ET410.

One area I am looking to see is a nice durable body. I remember my old ET48 days when that was an issue (not sure if it is still now), so hoping that the ET410 gets a nice durable one.

These I bet would be a blast on a variety of tracks. 1/10 2wd on a large 1/8 track here the stadiums would clean up (we ran open 1/10 2wd, so anything 2wd), can imagine what a stadium truck 1/10 4wd would do.

Default ET210

This could lead to a ET210 conversion kit LOL.

It appears to use standard 2.2 St shoes, and Matt has stated he is liking standard 2 pole motors right now. I'm sure we will get many details and updates when the kit is fully released. Needless to say I'll have a fleet of these. I'll be the guy to show up with 4 to race and anyone with a spare receiver can stick one in and we can start the movement! (;

I just bought my first Tekno. There is no support for them at the shops around me but I took the plunge. So far I love it. I did break the the A block on its first run. It was a hard landing and it should have broken, but the fact that the shops here don't have their stuff means not quick fix. Otherwise I LOVE THIS TRUCK.

With that being said, Stadium Truck is my favorite class and has been since my old Stadium Blitzer way back when. I'll buy and assemble this thing the first day its available. WANT, WANT, WANT!!!! Please hurry and release this. TAKE MY MONEY, PLEASE!!!

i find it hard to believe standard 2 pole 540's can effectively power these. back when the TT came out, we had a 1/10 truggy class at my local track. the setup of choice were 550's and then the 4 pole motors when they came out. even some of the 2 pole 550's would heat up pretty good (especially the tekin ones. novak's weren't as bad). while i would imagine the ET410 will probably be a bit lighter than a TT, it will also be going through 3 diffs instead of 2.

i guess we'll see...

Setting up a motor is all about the gearing & the expectations. You can push a 1/8 ebug with a 380 motor & not over heat. It wonít accelerate quickly at all & wonít be fast at all, but it will work. The same applies to a 1/10 truggy. If you want it to be the fastest thing on the track go ahead & put a 2600kv 1/8 motor in it & run it on an SMC 4300 4s with a tekin rx8. Will that be fast enough for you?

My personal expectation is a 10.5 with some timing & boost, & geared properly, will be fast enough to clear any big triples & not have any heat issues on 2s.
