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.

Anyone out there running aftermarket front bumper on their ET410? I know I'm getting ready to give it a go with a TBR piece bolted on the front end. I'm hoping the bumper absorbs more energy than transferring it to something else. We shall see.

Yup I am running a T-bone front bumper on my ET and I am pretty sure it has saved me a few times from having to replace a part or two.

Ya I broke my rear bulkhead as well on my first time out with my ET but the hinge pins were all straight still. The second and third times out I brought it home in one peice. Friday though on my 4th time out I broke a rear hub. Again though all of the hinge pins look good. Has anybody else been breaking rear hubs? I was thinking about getting the Trinity aluminum hubs but somethings got to give and the a-arms seem pretty tough so if I go aluminum I'm affraid it's the bulkhead that will go every time. And hubs are cheaper and easier to change.

Iím sure there would be far less broken parts if the owners didnít crash as often, especially myself lol. I can count a good 20 ET410 owners at our local track, yet we still donít have a dedicated class for racing.

As for the front, Exotek makes a nice heavy duty brace that reinforces the shocktower with the bulkhead.

As for the inner hingepins, it might be designed to snap before the bulkhead or arms do.
The problem I saw was that inner hinge pins didn't snap, they would bend and arm would snap. The McMaster Carr ones I posted earlier seemed to have solved it for me, on a hard hit, pin snaps, arm usually still good. I have a stock pile of front arms I may not need for some time now lol, but I am good with that.

Ran a couple of packs through my eb410MIP to et410MIP to et410. I honestly believe the MIP chassis is not cool for a et410. It now jumps a lot more predictable. Love how it powers through the corners. Yes, I still race a eb410MIP, and love it. I have kept the Rear shock in front of rear towers all the time for testing. This was on indoor clay. Now just have a bit of a heating issue. Reedy 510r speed control with a Maclan 6.5, 15 pinion. Fans on both, seems like it was just making 5 minutes without getting to hot. Both are older and a bit abused. Ordered a Maclan Pro and their new 5.5. Bet either the Motor or Speed control were going bad. The other couple et410's were goofing around for at least twice as long, with similar setups.

i can can go a solid 20min and have temps come off on Moyer and speedo around 1210 to 120

glad to hear that MIP chassis was the culprit of the jumps being off

i run the 510R and a reedy M3 6.5T, but i have a 13.0mm torque rotor installed. with a 16T pinion, my esc and motor temps were 80-90 degrees this past weekend (motor has a fan, esc does not). ambients were low 50's. it has been an awesome combo for me.

unfortunately there was no class at the track i ran. i ended up running the ET in two classes (1/10 buggy and 1/8 buggy). TQ'd both. ended up second in 1/10 and first in 1/8. was completely dialed with kit setup and 40 gram weight in rear.

I wish there was a longer Chassis available, longer rear drive shaft, and Shortcourse body mounts.
