The kit will include all oils and fluids, just like the EB48. It will have some extra for a rebuild or two as well.

In the right hands the DESC is fantastic on a big outdoor (1/8 scale) track. I agree that most of the DESC's you see are poorly setup and don't look to impressive.

I am looking forward to the Tekno SCT, as it should have great durability if it is based on the EB48

All they seem to stock locally is AE oils.

Wonder what the AE equivalents would be?

Would hate to find a diff/shock oil combo that works and not be able to repeat it.

Ae oils have the cst rating right on the bottle. Cst is more reliable when comparing different brands.

That's cool, Tekno, I am sure will be well represented.


Another race we would love to go to, but not set with our own racing schedule just yet.
Again, looks like 3 people from this thread alone will be there with at least an SCT 410


Our kit is based off of our EB48 (shares about 80% of the parts) and that platform has been through more than a year of testing by us combined with our customers that have been running it for quite a while now. The SCT410 has gone through many months of testing by itself as well and being that it shares most of the parts with the EB48, it has been proven to be a solid vehicle through and through. We feel confident that this truck will outshine all other vehicles on the track and that everyone will be very pleased with the performance and parts wear/durability throughout every part.
I cant wait to slim down my mobile garage.

I just saw that Air Control Guards are listed on the Tekno site as an optional part for the SCT410.

http://www.teknorc.com/shop/tkr5504-...ght-whardware/

Do these replace the side mud guards? How do they work?

Thanks!

My guess is they fill in the gap between the mud guard and the body to possibly aid against parachuting.

You got it. But they do more . They increase stability at higher speeds by reducing turbulence inside the body. And they also help keep the truck clean by protecting against mud and dirt.

Every driver that tested them noticed a positive difference in jumping and highspeed cornering stability. Another thing these allow you to do is to cut less venting holes in your body so your bodies will last longer. So they should pay for themselves rather quickly.

We just finished up testing on them and they should be available a few weeks after launch.

Based on how you describe them, sounds like a must have.

Speaking of the mud and dirt thing, what currently is being done as an inner tray? Is it just the buggy body?
