In Depth Features:
- Lightweight black anodized aluminum chassis: Precision formed and machined from 3mm thick premium aluminum alloy, the TEN-SCTE's chassis provides a rock-solid foundation for unbeatable strength and stability. The chassis plate features a black anodized coating for increased durability and resistance to the elements.
- Anodized, Threaded Shocks: The TEN-SCTE's big-bore, 12mm machined aluminum shock bodies are blue anodized for smooth operation and wear resistance. Threaded shock collars offer easy yet precise adjustment of pre-load and ride height. Shock pistons and bladders are specifically designed for the TEN-SCTE's chassis design and weight provides optimum ride and handling.
- 550-sized, 4-pole, 2800Kv programmable brushless system: This brushless system was designed to harness the most power available for the TEN-SCTE 4WD platform. The 550-sized, 4-pole motor provides an ample amount of torque and top end speeds for any type of action you are looking for. The ESC is easy to set up and is programmable with features like brake/reverse type, brake/reverse amount, punch control, voltage cutoff, motor timing and much more.
- Simple-adjust motor mount: The TEN-SCTE's motor mount design is based on the TLR race-oriented 8IGHT-E motor mount design. A single screw will allow for quick adjustments and motor removal for maintenance and cleaning.
- Off-road beadlock-style wheels with Losi exclusive Eclipse SCT tread pattern: The black wheels with simulated beadlock rings ensure power is transferred to the ground in style, while the Eclipse SCTs provide plenty of traction on multiple surface types.
- 4mm adjustable turnbuckles with captured ends: Losi has designed the TEN-SCTEs tie rods with captured ends to stand up to extreme impacts and virtually any terrain you'll encounter. Captured rod ends prevent accidental disconnection and keep the suspension solid and reliable.

I bought this truck from A-Main 3 weeks ago, to "race" on our own track with my friends and family. I've got a Traxxas Stampede VXL 4x4, and it can't run through a single 3S lipo without breaking something. The track is too fast and bumpy for my XXX-SCT, and too dry for a 2WD to get anything done anyways. I was planning to buy a Thunder Tiger MT4 G3, as it's the ideal size, and it's drastically tougher, faster, and cheaper than an e-Revo, but they are impossible to get.
So I "settled" on the Ten-SCTE, and couldn't be happier. I've put roughly 20 3S lipos through it, and it's taken a f*&@ing BEATING in the process. To this point, I haven't broken a single thing except the body, and two of the body mounts. I had to remove the rear end on Sunday to bend the frame straight as a result of repeatedly landing nose high from 6 feet in the air, 20 feet past the landing of a triple that none of our other cars can even clear. It takes 5 countersunk screws to *completely* remove the rear half of the car. That's it. Clamped the frame in a vise, and bent it back straight. Put the 5 screws back in, and the car is completely back together.
Bone stock, with a Tenergy 5000mah 3S, the truck is crazy fast. I highly recommend this truck to anybody looking for a serious basher as well as a capable race vehicle. It's significantly more resilient than a Slash 4x4 VXL, and MUCH faster as well. You will not be disappointed with this truck.
Best rtr 4x4 sct on the market (until the 2.0 is released)
Tuff, race ready and very well priced.
You WILL NOT fine a better rtr SC that's handles n races this good.
well, i've had the SCTE for some weeks now, and i'm so happy with it! it feels so good straight out of the box and it's still going! I would recomend this to anyone going for a higher-end RC. all five thumbs up!
Excellent Short Course Truck out of the box, out of only drain the body and the absence of a factory of protection against water.
Great truck. I'm new to rc and this is my second vehicle. My first was a 1/10 buggy that is great, but every time I took it out for a bash something broke and had to be replaced. So for my bashing needs I decided to get this SCT and wow it can handle a being bashed. I even accidentally ran it through a thick puddle of mud (not recommended) and while the esc didn't like it, after a good clean and recalibration it runs as good as new. Truck is very fast too. Only thing I wish it had (for bashing) is a heat sink on the motor, as the 550 is pushed hard on a body this size when sprinting.
This is the greatest 4x4 truck i have ever driven. I've had it since august and it has never broken. The only damage it has suffered was body wear, and a bent front hinge pin, but that was my fault. (I went over a jump and i wasn't paying attention, so it came down at a weird angle. I got the pin straightened out.) I really couldn't ask for more from this truck. Great power, amazing durability, has a death grip on many surfaces, and it has the greatest box-stock setup. I highly recommend this truck to a buyer, even to a newbie, it may be $500, but it's totally worth it.
Really good SC as a starter, the ESC motor combo is actually pretty good for a RTR.
The steering servo is horrible, might as well replace that the same time you buy this.
The DX3E system, its OK, but might as well invest in a better reciever transmitter down the road.
Overall an excellent RTR.
This truck is fast out of the box and even comes with a spektrum radio. It needs some upgrades at first though. Shock towers are made out of cheap thin aluminum and bend easily. I at first purchased the losi machined aluminum towers and they aren't that much better. I now own the losi carbon towers and they are going strong at 3 months. The front bumper is also a weak design. I went through 2 of those in just a couple weeks. I am running the t-bone bumper and it is way better then stock. Also the outdrives are really soft and wear out quickly. Losi has hardened upgrades for this, but if you have the money I would go with Tekno and replace all the dogbones and all. You will still have to run the losi outdrives in the center diff though. And the last 2 things are the chassis and servo. Most rtr's come with weak servos so that isn't surprising. The chassis will need attention in the future. The stock chassis just does not hold up. I am personally running a Bump chassis with no issues.
It's my first RC and I really believe that I made the right choice. After months researching I decided for this one for the sturdiness and drivelability witch I can totally testify that. I recommend to everyone who starting on RC cars and is interested to have fun with no headache. Amazing how tough it is this car
great ready to run out of the box sct. have always ran 1/8 buggy. bought for me and my wife to play with. took to the off road track the first weekend I bought it. handled and drove amazing for out of the box.
Got my Ten-Scte lastnight ran it a little bit lastnight, it was super dark but still hella fun. Woke up this morning with a fully charged ProTek 2s 65c 5000mah and was %110 happy with this product, i would also like to give a shout out to A Main Hobbies for putting out a killer battery for a cheaper price than other top brands. So 5 out of 5 for me!!! Thank u A Main the free shipping was super fast and thank u employee 30 for ur friendly service!!
It's a great RTR. The transmitter is a nice dx3e. The tires bad but what rtr doesn't have bad tires? They make them too hard. The rtr does have sway bars front and rear which is a huge plus. The electronics are pretty good too surprisingly. You can fit a huge motor in this truck if you choose to. It's my favorite rc by far for racing and bashing.
THAT IS NOT WHAT I GRADED THIS TRUCK AT I STILL THINK ITS A GREAT TRUCK!!!
Not that great!!
I was noticing it was not driving straight & looked under to see the frame & it is bent it has to be a factory defect or is that week? I gave them a thumbs up on it but now I take my words back!! I have a traxxas jato I've ran that thing over some Ruff stuff & the fram Never got bent & same thickness 3-mm
to all of you out there that has the new Losi 10 scte rtr watch out the frame is very badly made were it comes to the front of it there is not enough metal to much cut off should be more straight cut not the V cut were the a-arm hook they have got to fix this matter
