This is the Tekno RC SCT410 Competition 1/10 Scale Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit. Based on the groundbreaking EB48 1/8 scale electric buggy and sharing many parts, the SCT410 features many redesigned parts to keep weight to a minimum. Including lighter arms, steering blocks, spindle carriers, rear hubs, and an updated lightweight drivetrain, the SCT410 carries 1/10 scale weight and agility with true 1/8 scale roots. Add some sturdy adjustable body mounts and a front/rear bumper system and you have one serious 4WD short course machine. Standard 12mm hex wheels will bolt right on (Losi SCTE offset) and existing 7.4V SCT power systems will have no trouble pushing the SCT410 around the track.

In my opinion, this truck seems to be the best out of the box, BUT if you already own lets say a Losi scte, it wouldnt be worth switing trucks. The Losi scte is just as good as this truck after you spend around $200 for upgrades in which alot of people have already done. The fastest guy at our track drove an sc10 4x4 and had the Tekno yesterday and I was impressed with it. If I were in the Market for a new 4x4, I would wait for the TLR scte 2.0 to come out and wait on reviews on both before making the decisioin. I do like the straight drive shafts on the tekno, Both are gonna be great trucks
This is THE truck to have if you race 4x4 SCT! It simply outclasses every other truck in every way possible, and I have owned them all. The highest quality, most durable, best handling, most forgiving and easiest to drive is the Tekno SCT410. Get one, now!

THIS TRUCK IS THE SHIT!!!!! I have raced the losi SCTE and the TEKNO. The TEKNO EATS UP THE LOSI BY FAR!!! Hands DOWN this is the BEST SCT EVER!!!
None of the model itself. well that was done on the basis of the buggy, very reliable, others would have broken 20 times, and it withstands severe shock. have negative battery front-mount necessary to alter, move back to the battery, and so the model revolves around the front axle. a large selection of springs and pistons is a plus. no need to keep a lot of parts-plus. bit heavy for the carpet-but it must learn how to configure the chassis for the carpet. buy safely - it's the best chassis on this day!
One rule racing
Going on 6 months of owning this truck racing at least every weekend. Still not one failure. I have had 3 other drivers switch from their old trucks to the tekno based on my results. I am by no means the best driver and I have put some serious abuse to the sct410. The fastest driver in pro4 was the second fastest for a long time. He switched to the tekno after I let him run some practice with it. He is now the fastest and consistently sets new lap records. This truck is hands down the best truck in pro4. I never touch any of my other pro4 trucks after I built this. Don't waste your money on another brand. Buy the tekno and spend time on the track not in the pits.
Best sc truck on the market by far! If u are choosing between the tlr 2.0 or tekno, tekno hands down! I've had every short course truck since the hyper10 and jammin first came out and this truck is the next generation of sc. They have set the new standard in sc.

By far one of the best short course trucks i have had! It's a solid truck that handles very well for it's size and weight. Built well unlike the cheap feeling of the losi scte and it is very durable. Could not have asked for a better truck, i am in love with mine!
One word Awesome! Truck is the easiest kit to build that I have ever owned... Comparing this to my SC10 4x4 well the sc10 looks like a 1/10 scale buggy in comparison. Only upgrade was the aluminum hex hubs from tekno. Get it and leave your competition in the dust. Turn the servo saver nut in 6mm.
If you're looking for a SC thats purpose built here it is. The Tekno SCT410 has tons of steering and tons of tuning options. The kit is very easy to build and the parts fit together nicely.
Hands down the best sct out! Built from a 1/8th platform makes this a super tough truck. It's a beast but is still light. Best engineered sct for sure!
This truck was my first short course truck that I bought. I have since bought more but nothing compares to this truck with a Tekin 550 4300kv motor and a 1/8 gen2 ESC. I know people talk about the good but so I will share some of my challenges. First, I stripped out some screws but thankfully I bought the stainless steel Tekno screw kit. It was worth it. If you go online and find a set-up, it won't mean anything except you will need to change other things like the turnbuckle lengths,etc. For this truck, I would set the front shocks/springs firmer and the back shocks softer. This keeps it from nose diving. Last, if you are going to pay, pay all the way. I bought a Protek 150S servo (7.4V)(buy the extention male/female), Futaba 4pls radio and Orion 7150MaH 100C batteries with deans (x 8). I also bought a top of the line 4 line charger (Prodigy 67 quad AC: $240) and a great soldering station (TrakPower TK-950. (. Also, buy wire, heat shrink, deans plugs, 60/40 solder, a 15 or so MOD 1 pinion, a my lap transponder if you want to race, mounting tape (I put tire glue on both sides and it worked great), Shock oil, Diff oil, and tires that you like. I did upgrade the motor mounts and front/center drive shaft. Over all, I love this truck but with this set-up, it is fast and if you add timing, it gets real fast.
Great truck. I chose this brand for the durability and low maintenance. I learned with this truck and it took a tremendous amount of punishment with any breaks. Highly recommended.
So I dropped a bit of money on a losi 1.0 chassis a while ago then recently bought the Mip chassis for it, the Mip chassis made it worse and I gave up, I asked the winner about his truck, a Tekno, so I bought the Tekno. Love this truck, it is very tough and well designed. The most important thing about this truck is the forward weight bias, it's very frustrating to need more steering in the dirt and just not be able to get it, this trick does not have this issue, it has all the steering I need, unlike the losi. I think this is the truck to have in short course.
Just bought the truck.. After a year being out of the sport the truck was built to book spec . Diff fluids and shock fluids and no set up time at the track .. Ran indoor carpet with the rig and killed it.. Best times all day in the class and putting down the most laps.. Hooked on tekno products now!
Now when I have had my truck for one year so it is good time to write my review about it. Before this I had Slash 4x4 and Losi SCTE that was upgraded a lot.
This truck is awesome straight out of the box. The only part I think you will need to change is servoarm (plastic arms at the box for every servo) and this ok because it would be stoopid to put all metal arms in the box from Tekno. I run this car with Savox and I have Tekno arm for it.
So after one year of driving this I can say:
- It is very bulletproof car (only part with problems for me have been stub axles and Tekno told that it is fixed)
- It is very easy to drive
- It stays on it´s wheels at hard places and just runs on
- It is good also at indoor tracks but sure I love it even more outside
For me: this is the best car.
If you want a durable and reliable truck this is the one to get the 2.0 is a laugher it's always in the pits getting repaired . LOL!!!! I've owned this for a year now and haven't had to fix anything. oh change out the hexes to clamping . And I beat the shit out of this thing. Still haven't touch the diffs either. Going to finally break those down. What a truck just buy it you won't be disappointed ...
What a truck, this thing turns well and handles well. My sons first truck was the Durango DESC410R which is capable truck, however the SCT410 is superior to the Durango in every way. I noticed an immediate improvement in his lap times and his confidence while driving at the trucks limit. Simply AWESOME! !
This truck is AWESOME!!! I am a master chevrolet tech, the engineering and the BEEF of this truck are incredible,rx8 gen2 and tekin he pro are perfect combo,I haven't even touched my sc10 4x4!!!!
Just made (October 2013) the switch from the Associated...............no comparison. This truck wins hands down. Was always in the top three at the local tracks. Not anymore..........worst finish was a second to another Tekno by less than a half second. Outstanding truck!!
These truck don't need any more positive reviews, they already seem to sell themselves!
We purchased our kit two months ago and now I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. We are running a Tekin Pro4 HD 4300kv motor (16t pinion), Viper VTX8 esc , 42.5/37.5 shock oil, and 5/7/3 in the diffs. I did make a change to "green" springs both front and rear. This thing ROCKS!!!!!
Lap times at our home track with the SCT410 are within one second of our JQ electric 1/8 scale on 4s. The JQ average is in the mid 31s and the Tekno is mid 32s. It also drives much more like the 1/8 scale does.
Great job TEKNO!!
