Hard to reconcile those vs the current MT410 arms... Those are like little T-rex arms!

Also, if we were making new MT's based on the ET48, we'd probably call it a MT48 this time around. A new MT410 would be based a replacement for the SCT410.3 since that's closer to what the market refers to as "10th" scale.
The OG one should have been called an MT48 from the word go. If the new one really is like the photos above it will just serve to confuse Teknos customers even more. The industry as a whole needs to figure out the scale system. All over the map

It is hard to see how the SCT410 2.0 and the MT410 2.0 can have the same suspension arms. In the prior generation, there was a massive difference in the width of the two vehicles (420mm width vs 296mm, or about a 5-inch difference). The wheelbases were identical, though.

Did you look at the picture above? Whatever that is, it's got short arms.

Default Tekno size comparison

Posting my size comparison again here for reference. I would say if it's using the SCT arms then it needs to be a shorter wheelbase. Will it be close to the ET410?

Look at the picture lol. It's clearly shorter than the sct. Stampede size. Whatever it is..

There's a couple of things about the image that make it hard to be certain. For one, the MT410 2.0 is farther from the camera. Second, the SCT410 2.0 is closer to the edge of the image, which stretches it compared to the center of the image. You could apply some transforms to the image to be more certain.

Rather than trying to compare it to the SCT410 in the photo, maybe best to use the items on the truck itself to determine scale. Looks like a tucked crawler body to me (JCI Tucked 1989 Ford F-250 Body?) and those are basically all 12.3"/312mm wheelbase. I suppose you could fit a 12.7" wheelbase just like the SCT and MT410 1.0. The Stampede is only a 270-275mm (10.6") wheelbase, that would look much smaller.

In terms of the wheels, looks like the JConcepts Tribute wheels and Firestorm tires, these are 12mm hexes so that's interesting, also the Tributes offer swappable 11mm-25mm offset, so the shorter arms from the SCT410 might be more viable with an inch of offset on either side.

You will note that the SCT410 2.0 chassis is one of the few parts that doesn't say MT410/SCT410 2.0, suggesting that a new chassis is coming for the MT.

It would bé nice if the MT410 2.0 have the same size of the pede or granite.
For the rest if you want something more like the previous MT410 IS really easy!
You just have to put some ET2.0 arm on a SCT2.0 and you got a MT49 or put some SCT2.0 shock tower on a EB2.1 and you got a MT49,5.
You just to put some SCT2.0 shock tower on a ET2.0 and you got a MT48.
Well I guess is a little bit more difficult but with how parts of tekno range are compatible it could be easy.
Just my point of view

Tekno typically is pretty coy about this until they are ready, they want to give vendors time to clear stock.

The MT410 is back ordered on AMain and out of stock on Tekno's site and when you search for MT410 on Towers site a bunch of parts for the MT410 2.0 show up, so I'd say the cat's out of the bag and a new MT410 2.0 is going to be announced very shortly.

Going to take a guess based on the body and like someone else has stated, I think this truck is smaller and to be more specific the wheelbase is right around 12.3" (.5" shorter than the MT410) and it will use crawler bodies and 2.8" wheels. The MT10's wheel base is 11.22", there aren't many bodies that work well on the MT410, the Traxxas Sport body has proved to be pretty durable when used on a MT410, and there are a ton of 12.3" bodies out there.

thats all ridiculous. the cars are all close enough together in that image that theres no camera trickery going on. Its CLEARLY shorter than the SCT. ( whatever "it" may be )
also parts listed so far on tekno site all same as new sct 2.0 aside from motor mount and chassis / chassis side parts.
