Default Tekno RC MT410 2.0 1/10th Electric 44 Pro Monster Truck







I was out and about; looking for a manual, and some new parts caught my eye.....

Here's what Tekno staff said about this 2 weeks ago:

The MT410 1.0 uses the SCT410.3/EB48SL TKR5288 chassis already, so I'm not sure how the MT410 2.0 is different, unless the implication is that it's using the SCT410 2.0 chassis but with shorter arms than the 1.0's ET48 arms. Maybe they are just saying that if they used the ET48 chassis they'd call it a 1/8th. Maybe the implication is that the MT410 2.0 will be a leaner machine than the 1.0?

My guess is that they'll just name it MT48 (maybe with a "2.0" for good measure, and to help unify the entire 8th scale line-up). The MT410 was always an 8th scale vehicle anyway (it required 8th scale electronics and tires). I think weight is the best all-around metric for scale. Under 7 lbs all up is the high end of 10th scale for me. Anything pushing 8lbs+ is 8th scale, in general.

I think they'd need something based on the ET/EB410 line-up to really get down in the 6lb weight range with 10th scale electronics. Seems to be the direction they went in with the smaller/lighter SC truck.

Exciting to see!

So did they just hint that they are going to release another MT?

Certainly leaves the door open for an MT48, but the MT410 1.0 already feels like a 1/8th scale so I'm curious how they would differentiate it from the unannounced but forthcoming MT410 2.0, which seems to be based on the SCT410 2.0 the way the MT410 is partially based on the SCT410.3

I'm guessing MT410 2.0 is essentially a SCT410 2.0 chassis and drivetrain with ET48 2.0 arms/axles/turnbuckles.

An MT48 would probably be based off an ET48 2.0, but with even wider arms???? It would almost certainly need 6s power by this point.

I'm thinking you are right correct with your first thought on it being based on the SCT410 2.0. And believe they are trying to achieve a similar price point for the target market.

Still wish the current MT410 had a slightly longer wheelbase but the truggy chassis would be too long. Seems more "square" based on width/wheelbase setup.

I assume the two issues with longer wheelbase would be less flip control due to higher moment of inertia and lack of compatible bodies.

ISTR in the past, someone offered an long wheelbase chassis for the MT410/SCT410.3. It was only a few mm longer. I forget who it was. M2C? Possibly a couple others.

The reason you want a square setup is so that it pulls wheelies. A long wheelbase kills that.

See above. A longer wheelbase = less flipping.

I think there can be a reasonable compromise. Although standing backflips can be stupid fun, haha.

I wish I didn't buy my Traxxas Maxx but this might be a good upgrade down the road.

From the pic that appeared today it looks like its even shorter wheelbase than the sct, with short arms. Stampede 4x4 size. Sad face 😞
