Default Anyone MT段ng the Tekno ET410?

Anyone here wanting to monster truck-ify the new ET410? I知 so intrigued by the chassis layout but don稚 plan on doing any type of 4WD stadium truck racing. What痴 the setup? 2-3S, 2.8 wheels, body posts, and a lid? Not sure how friendly the gearing is with MT tires. Just looking for a front yard jumper.

That's not what he asked whatsoever. ET410 is a completely different chassis layout.

if its built like the 1/10 4wd it would probably break allot of front end parts with larger heavier tires on it.

They literally make the MT410 for the exact purpose of being a monster truck. Why take a buggy based stadium truck and add all the weight outside of the hubs? Just buy an MT410 and build it.

And before anyone states that "cause he can"; id like to point out that just because you can doesn't mean you should.

In Tekno I have the MT410, ET48.3 MT, EB48.4, EB48SL. I just love Teknos. Serpent makes the Spyder MT2 that’s based on their 1/10 racing buggy. It has a mild BL system probably for the same reasons as aforementioned - likely will break parts with a much hotter setup and hard abuse.

I’ll be ordering the ET410 on Friday. I’ll drive it as an ST for awhile. Once I MT it I’ll report back.

I would want to do the same thing (no racing in my area).

Only issues I see are around space. Limited battery options and limited space for motor. The battery tray I can live with but I like slightly longer can motors and it it doesn稚 seem like even a 36-60 would fit in this chassis. But maybe it is light enough that it doesn稚 matter.
