A little tip too, use the buggy body underneath as a mud guard for the tray so you don't need to worry about it getting filled up there with grass and leaves and snow and stuff.

Default Bag J Step J-4 / page 15

Getting ahead of myself before the kit arrives...

We've reverted back to the front bumper with integrated skid. I understand that the newer chassis (SCT410.3) are countersunk on the forward most set of 4x15mm screws. Is it intended to allow the bumper skid to simply cover the front screws, or, can one use the two mounting holes in the skid to help secure the bumper? Just clarifying. Perhaps it doesn't matter much. You could drop in a few o-rings to fill the countersunk void if you decided to use the skid mounting holes.

Default Pinion?

I think I'll handover a nice birthday present to my self (in 3 weeks)
  • What pinion size could be a good starting point using a 2000kv (t8) truggy motor? I could not find any "advice" on tekno's page about the MT410.
  • What optional parts would eventually make sense (universals, servo horn, alu shock caps, delrin pistons, etc.)?

Are the shocks the same length as the ET(it appears they are)? Would ET shock towers be an upgrade(I know the body mounts wont fit)? Would an EB chassis be an upgrade?

MOD1 Pinion 15 tooth – 25 tooth (TKR4175 – TKR4185)
I would get the Tekno aluminum servo horn & shock caps. I have yet to try the Delrin shock parts.

Your right! Race grade parts for sure. That's what makes this interesting. The Arrma 8 scale line up is a derivative of the Team Durango 8 scale line up. No where near the race grade mod factor this has. But they really have not needed them. Specially the V2's.

Still a great addition to the MT segment.

This may look ancient, but it's a similar setup to the Tekno-MT. It's my RC8.2e-MT conversion using RC8TE parts. I'm running a 46T Spur with a 14T pinion. 4s is plenty fast and 6s is a handful. Still a ton of fun.

You should be able to remove the original bumper and use the TBR bumper for the ET48 and then use their 1/8 wheelie bar.
