Both cars are 4wd. They are just different layouts and designs. The Tekno is cheaper but comes with less premium parts and less tunablity. It needs more parts besides what comes in the box to be competitive. Mainly front sway bars. The b74 comes with multiple sway bars and more carbon and aluminum parts but it is more expensive. Personally I would go with a b74 but either one could be competitive.

I see my tekno friends with spares for everything including bulkheads. Oh plus the chassis wears out where it gets real thin and can crack. New cars are thicker here I guess. Its still a weak point though.

I bought a used nice b64 and ran the crap out of it and broke 2 front arms and 1 rear. The rear was my fault and the 2 fronts were from hitting wrecked cars on the straight away I couldn't see (blocked by marshal/pole). Well I killed a few spur gears but you should use AE/Reedy pinions as they are wider to match the spur gear. Also the B64 is as fast or a little faster than the EB410 on dirt, and has won tons of carpet races. A good buddy of mine switched from the 410 to the 64 and went faster as its easier to drive.

My B74 looks even tougher. I have about 12 packs on it and its had some hard pipe hits already zero issues, and everything looks and feels stronger than the 64. Also its faster in every way and the setup doesn't have 2 years of development like the B64. The B74 is the top of the line car out right now. Everything is adjustable and when you adjust things it shows on track. Its fast and smooth right out of the box and every pack I've ran on it has been great. I don't see the need for spares much beyond the arms and hubs and spur gears I have now. I have no concerns minus huge wrecks that would break any car.

Still the B74. It will be adjustable to any condition, and there are team drivers posting setups on those types of tracks. Petit rc has them now as they are being developed they post more. And one of the biggest improvements the 74 has over the 64 is the longer shocks help the car jump and land better. That will definitely show on a larger out door track.

Also keep in mind the 410 is very small and crowded chassis. Its hard to package electronics and they only fit in one place really. The 74 is open and flexible and easy to work on. Everything fit perfectly and was super high quality when I was building it as well.

I don't own a b74, so I can't comment.

The Tankno is very durable. But no car is immune to breakage.

I'm not sure what tunability people have mentioned that can be done on ab74, and not an eb410, suffer from the optional sway bar in front, which I haven't needed yet.

I have both, and will always be a Tekno fan and they did a GREAT job on their first 1/10 car. The next will be even better im sure. B74 hands down, durable, tunability, build is perfect, and comes with all carbon, tini shafts, etc. So where its priced at is just right.

The ae car has diff height and hub height adjustment and more fine tunable chassis flex with the carbon spines.

I drove the crap out of the eb410, and now have a b74. I race High-bite indoor clay. In a way, it is apples and oranges. I think of the eb410 more like a Dart. It takes monster jumps well. If you start sliding in the corners, apply more gas. I think of the b74, more like a refined 2wd with more traction. Outdoor Dirt (that I have not raced on), I would think the eb410 would have an edge. Indoor high bite or carpet, b74 all the way.

Out of the box, I believe the b74 is smoother, and stronger. I don't miss replacing bulkheads on the eb410.

Another factor may be where you race. Big 1/8 scale track, maybe there is more support for the eb410/et410 and maybe even make a Shortcourse out of one. It is nice there are about 95% of the same parts. et410 Trugy, is a fun beast.

XB4, enough said. Tune-ability, quality, durable, fast anywhere/everywhere. No lack of set-ups for every condition/surface.
