I've broken a few things, the center and rear chassis braces, and a front suspension holder. They're replaced with M2C parts now.

I broke several body mounts. I have since replaced them with Proline mounts for a slash 4x4. The only other thing I have broken are the lower shock mounts. It is amazing the amount of abuse this truck can take and keep it moving.

Castle electronics on the other hand suck. Put about 5-7 packs through the MMX and 1515 motor and it packed up. Sent it back to Castle 4 weeks ago and still do not have it. They also cannot seem to locate it and will not respond to my responses. Hobbywing is the only way to go. Amazing truck should have amazing electronics to keep it in the air.

Has anyone put a Slipperential center diff in their MT410? I have one and I am curious if anyone has made it work.

Smallest tooth count you can get is 46T. I don't know that it would fit without shimming. I've got one in another truggy and they work well, so I would imagine that it would work well in the MT410 as well.

Do you mean shim the diff mount up so the spur will clear the chassis?

Yep, I've heard that a Losi 45T will fit, but 46T requires shimming the mount up a hair.

I had shim my central diff mount up and I could used a 46T spur stock diff or
a 48T spur losi HD diff without any problem.
I don't have a 50 T spur to try but it still have space between 48T spur and chassis .


I had very great success without breaking body post and post mount by using offset
Body post like Dr_T.

Hi guys

I just bought myself an MT410 and looking forward to building it, but I'm unsure of a motor/esc combo for it. I don't want some stupidly powerful wheelie machine, what's the point of that, I do of course want the speed with all 4 wheels planted. Of course space is a problem.

I'm thinking of the Hobbywing 4268 1900kv but I'm concerned about temps and lack of power, who's running one? any videos?
I'm also thinking of the old school Hobbywing Xerun 4274SD 1800kv (pictured below) with a Max8 or XR8. I can pick up a new one cheap here in Oz. This would have less power and I could gear it right up, 18 or 20T pinion even, so wheelies shouldn't be a problem and I'll get the speed I want

I'll be running 4S with 3.8 Badlands

Any thoughts/advice

I run the 4274 2200kv with the xr8 Plus in on 6s and its way to much. When I run it on 4s, it still easily does wheelies on command but is way more manageable. With how big the tires are I would only run truggy size motors, that extra torque is always welcome. Its also a very tight fit, I had to shim the motor away from the motor mount and shave some off the center brace.

Not me, never had a problem with 1 and I have 5. Including two MMXs... one of which I have had on a buggy for almost 2 years. 4s and 6s only on the 8ighte 3.0. I have raced and bashed it.

Replying to my own post, now that's awesome

Anyway, I was looking around the internet for various esc/motor combos and a hobby shop here in Australia had the Tekin RX8 gen2 and 2250kv truggy combo for only $299AUD, roughly $225 US dollars, what a bargain!!!!
Sure it's the gen2, but I'm not fussed about that at all
So the Tekin combo it is. I also ordered a Tekin Hotwire, a set of badlands, a Savox 1270, Tekno alloy servo horn, and the Proline 2017 F150 nRaptor body from Amain

I can play around with the RX8 with the Hotwire and lower the punch, timing etc etc, you know the drill. Very happy anyway with my find

I'm planning on making this a "true" 1/8 truck by extending it with the ET48 chassis. For anyone that's done it are these the only parts I need...

- ET48 chassis
- ET48 chassis brace set
- ET48 rear centre driveshaft
- Bodyshell, I was thinking of the HPI Gigante body. It's wheelbase is 360mm, the ET48's is 380mm. The overall length is 545mm, width is 203mm
