They have been quietly developing a strong following in the non racer area. And those they both race and bash. Don't have one but everything I've read seems very good.

LOL. Exactly the reason they have such a following in the basher crowd.

That MT is a backflipping mammajamma!

Looks very cool. I've been searching for a basher to abuse between race dates.... This might be the one!

Looks like mostly a ET48.3 kit, with the shorter SCT410.3 chassis and the SCT body mounts and front/rear bumpers? Could be not a single new part on it: great way for Tekno to make some $$$. I like it!

Brilliant! just brilliant from tekno. They already have the reputation of been super tough. No real need to test that. With the MT been base on their current line, you already know what you getting. The question would be... Would they sell it as a kit, roller (prebuild) or ready to run. Most bashers like the RTR or ARTR vehicles. They will do good on this one. Good Job Tekno

At the end of the video it said Electronics not included so it will come as a kit. It also said broken parts replaced at 50% off, some restrictions apply

It would be a toss-up between this tTekno truck and the new Armma Outcast. The one thing I like about this truck coming as a kit, I can select my electronics. I could put in a 3000kv motor and run it on 3s as opposed to having to run the outcast on either 4s or 6s. I'm sure this truck weighs a little less than the 10-pound Outkast.

It also said wheels, tires, and body not included. You could really make this your own customized monster truck. I wonder what the kit will be priced at?

ARRMA and Durango beat them to the punch anyways ...
1/8 buggy chassis with truggy arms
really no big deal
Cool that there is more competition though

Will need to put together a list of what parts are needed to convert my SCT410.3 to MT410. Looks like fun!

Interesting this is announced so close to the Outcast. Maybe should not be a surprise, both are just in time for Christmas.


As I see it, two great choices.
Need a overpowered, Tough as nails RTR? Get the Outcast.
Want to customize the power and the look, or need an absolute Tank? Get the MT410.
