You feeling ok today bud? Your right, that was probably the last thing I thought you would've posted. Why do like the losi more?

I agree don't count out the rapture it's on the same level as the losi and tekno just a smaller company so it's not as well known

around here they seem to be about even out of the box. the fastest thing we've seen around here so far was a losi with the mip chassi & shocks.
i'm a durango guy and would put against any of them on tighter indoor tracks but the tekno and losi both seem to be more suited for the bigger outdoor stuff.

Tekno is a GREAT up and coming company.

I would even say they are a great ESTABLISHED company now seeing how popular and successful they have been at local tracks all over the country.

That being said, I think the SCTE 2.0 is a more refined racer compared to the SCT410.2.

While the Tekno's fit, finish, materials, and durability is on par with the Losi, the Teknos still have the same problem the SCTE 1.0 had... it still tends to jump nose down.

This is really not a big deal. All Tekno and SCTE 1.0 drivers have learned to stay on the throttle to maintain the vehicle's nose level in the air, but the SCTE 2.0 does not have this issue at all. It jumps completely neutral.

The Tekno also rotates really REALLY well. It's a bit too aggressive for my driving style. Coming from a long history of 2wd buggy, I tend to roll through corners and accelerate out in a clean line. You almost have to steer the Tekno with throttle and powerslide through turns. The SCTE 2.0 fits my personal driving style a little better.

At the end of the day, you really can't go wrong with either truck. I've beat and have been beaten by plenty of SCT410's.

The trick is with the SCTE 1.0 with aftermarket chassis that dont move the center diff back . To help quite a bit with the nosediving is moving the Rear shocks to the outside hole. On the tower and using the middle hole on the arms jumps a lot better ! And moving the battery mounts towards the rear.


As for the Tekno truck i never raced out outdoors but on a indoor carpet offroad track it rotated really good for its weight and had tons of turn in ! But with the stock springs it would nosedive quite a bit even when keeping on the throttle.


Yea im with you on that driving style coming from 2wd same with me on the 4wd .
