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.

Parts Needed to convert from EB410 to ET410

I think RC*PHREAK is talking about a 2 pole motor being able to power the truck to its full potential, not that you couldn't run a 2 pole motor at all. You'd just have to settle for a slower vehicle to not overheat the motor. Driving a vehicle on the edge of it's capabilities produces the most fun is for many people, so the power plant has to provide the kick to get there.

Personally, I don't think a 2 pole motor will be popular in this vehicle for modified racing and especially for bashing. It would work, but you'd be at the edge of it's capabilities. Opting for a 540 4 pole motor will give you a cool running system with all the power a 4wd vehicle can handle on a medium to large track. 10.5 might make a pretty sweet spec class, though.

Think of it this way: For fast drivers, 2wd mod buggies run a 6.5 to 8.5 turn motor in mod. When you jump to 4wd, they drop 2-3 turns and run as low as a 5.5. 2wd trucks usually end up with similar motors as a 4wd buggy due to their extra weight and larger tire contact patch. Making that same truck 4wd would probably be capable of putting down the power from a 3.5 or 4.5 turn motor. Those motors are a handful to keep cool and are pretty brutal on the other electronics.

Also depends on the track. There are fast guys with a 13.5 that are putting pretty close to the same numbers as a driver with a mod 5.5-6.5 motor. The biggest difference is that those people that have the 13.5 motors also have to worry about weight where the mod drivers it doesn't matter.

Smaller tracks mod doesn't really mean quicker.

They are testing the ET410 at SDRC today. Might catch a glimpse of it on LiverRC.
Cain, rvrslt1 and Talon4U2NV like this.

You can see a white truck on the track at SDRC. It looks fast and seems to handle real well. It could be it.

I think they have two there. The white one, and a solid orange body with yellow wheels.

Matt and Danny for sure. Mason is a Tekno driver so he's probably getting some wheel time too.

Will it run 1/8th Scale Buggy Wheels andTiires? Or SCT Wheels and Tires? Gotta start stocking up on supply 🗄

no kidding. not sure what at all this has to do with what i said.

who said anything about wanting it to be the fastest thing on the track? or 1/8 motors? i said that from my experience in this class, a 2 pole 540 is not the best option. granted, like i said, the et410 will probably be a bit lighter than older iterations (hyper TT, ten-t). people who attempted to use them quickly found that they heated up to unacceptable levels. here is a video from that time. ten-t's (with 1/8 buggy wheels/tires) and hyper tt's. all using 550's. do they look ridiculously overpowered?

i want to see the tiny track with the tiny triples that this thing will clear consistently for 6-8 minutes with a 10.5. i run 13.5 wheeler and most tracks that have triples i cannot consistently clear for 6-8 minutes (and neither can anyone else in the class). i would imagine that best case, this et410 with a 10.5 would be comparable power to the 13.5 wheeler class. just saw that you mentioned boost. perhaps that could be doable as my 13.5 wheeler with boost is a totally different animal than blinky. unless 10.5 would be the spec motor for this class, why would you want to motor down with boost? only reason i've run my wheeler boosted is that i mainly run 13.5 but if the class isn't offered, i'll just boost it.
