Product Description

Tekno RC is proud to announce the newest addition to our stable of innovative RC vehicles – The SCT410 1/10th 4×4 Short Course Truck.  The SCT410 shares many parts with the groundbreaking EB48 1/8th Electric Buggy, so you know it will be able to carve up the track and take a beating.

There are many new parts on the SCT to keep weight to a minimum, including new lighter arms, steering blocks, spindle carriers, rear hubs, and an all new lilghtweight drivetrain.  Add some sturdy adjustable body mounts and a front/rear bumper system and you have the SCT that everyone has been waiting for – true 1/8th scale roots with 1/10th scale weight and agility.
Standard 12mm hex wheels will bolt right on (SCTE offset) and existing 7.4v SCT power systems will have no trouble pushing the SCT410 around the track.  The SCT410 will be sold in race kit form.

Chassis:

  • 4mm CNC 7075 aluminum black anodized chassis.
  • Super narrow layout – widest point is only 125mm (less than 5”) mudguard-to-mudguard.
  • Class leading front and rear clearance (short chassis overhang) provides better bump handling and jump landing.
  • Adjustable, lightweight body mounting system fits most popular SC bodies (Losi, AE, etc.).
  • Lightweight, extremely durable front and rear bumper system.
  • Integrated battery tray/mud guard, battery is sunken into chassis for a super low COG.

Differentials and Drivetrain:

  • 3 fluid filled adjustable super lightweight diffs.
  • Newly redesigned precision diff gears with innovative cross-pin design for increased durability.
  • Less rotating mass = better acceleration.
  • Straight center driveline for maximum efficiency and reduced wear.
  • CV driveshafts with captured pins on all 4 wheels.
  • Standard 12mm hexes fits most popular SC wheels (SCTE offset).


Shocks:

  • 16mm bore hard anodized shocks – Biggest-in-class!
  • 4mm 7075 aluminum shock towers are standard.
  • Innovative conical piston design (not just tapered) provides varied compression and rebound rates.
  • Fully adjustable long travel suspension geometry maximizes stability and traction while providing superior cornering and on-power steering.
  • CNC aluminum threaded shock bodies.
  • 4mm hardened steel polished shafts.
  • Triple guide design for true consistent shaft action.
  • Options for vented cap, emulsion, or standard shock configurations out of the box.
  • Optional springs and sway bars available.


Suspension and Steering:

  • Bulletproof suspension arms – thicker and stronger than the competition.
  • Adjustable length rear arms to suit any track condition.
  • Adjustable front arm sweep and angle to make the car more aggressive (swept forward), or easier to drive (swept back).
  • Front and rear arms can be used on either side = less parts in your toolbox.
  • ‘Narrow pivot’ steering posts provide ‘0 bump’ geometry with almost 0 steering slop.
  • Adjustable hinge pin braces are standard (toe, anti-squat, kick-up, front arm sweep).
  • 4mm inner, 3.5mm outer hinge pins, polished for smooth action.
  • Adjustable Ackerman and bump-steer (bump in, 0 bump, bump out).
  • Steering system is fully supported on precision ball bearings.  No bushings here.
  • LCG rod ends and lightweight turnbuckles.
  • Front/rear sway bars are the same length = less parts in your toolbox.

  • Extremely easy to work on with minimal screw count.

    as a 36 year master tech for nissan one thing about the R/C trucks I have built and been exposed too I did not like was the amount of slop(play) in steering/suspension componets. I purchased a new Tekno SCT410 and assembled it last night. I have to say I am greatly impressed with the tollerences and lack of slop,a very tight truck,Tekno has really got something here I think,I watched one TQ and dominate at Go Hard last weekend as well. I would say anyone serios about 4X4 short course should take a look at this truck. I am in no way afilliated with Tekno just sharing what I see

    WOW…great RC vehicle. best handling sct i have ever driven. i race on a local club level and this truck absolutely dominates…truck is very tight with very little to NO slop. 3 weeks of racing and practicing and truck is still as tight as the day i built it. truck is very easy to tune and responds well to minor adjustments. Very nice truck and IMO the top of the line for SCT 4×4. this beefy, nimble, planted truck also is backed by THE BEST customer service in the industry hands down. if your hesitating on buying this DONT WAIT…pick it up and you will be VERY PLEASED

    Wow this is an amazing truck. I finished this kit on Friday and I missed TQ by 2 seconds and won the main. I have not been racing in the 4wd class either. All the other racers couldn’t believe how awesome the truck turned and handled the truck (mostly TLR trucks at my track). Several of the guys are talking about getting the Tekno kits now that they have seen how well built they are. The steering is amazing especially at the lack of slop and how smooth is moves. You will not be disappointed in this truck.

    8th scale sized hardware, fantastic design, great materials, and clear instructions make this truck a pleasure to build.

    I have raced this truck all over the southeast since January ’13 and it always performs well. All I ever change are the droop and tires whether it’s outdoors, indoors, large or small.

    This truck has been amazing.

    Thank you Tekno!

    my name is cadillac. i own three of these trucks; one of which i converted to an eb48 super-lite ebuggy. i love these trucks! the sct410 is the best 4wd short course truck you can buy whether it’s for the performance or the money. i’ve owned a lot of rc’s since i joined the hobby a few years ago, and the tekno stuff has always been a cut above the rest. when it comes to tekno products you can tell a lot of man hours have went in to the design and testing of their kits and parts; whether it’s a full on kit like the sct410 or something as simple as a pinion gear for your motor. plus when it comes to the materials used for their products, you can easily tell no corners are cut when choosing the materials. the plastics are stout and the metal parts, whether steel, titanium, aluminum, are all grade A materials. the tolerances for the parts are very minimal; that’s how you can tell a lot of testing goes into what they design. for example; i used to race a different brand of 4wd short course truck, and once you ran one pack on that truck it immediately got hit with the “slop bug.” i’d have to rebuild that truck completely probably once a month if not more. i spent more time wrenching on that thing than driving it. that is not the case with the sct410. wow…it’s completely different…i am still running the same diff cases and gears since i bought my first truck in feb. 2013. i find myself blown away every time i open the diffs up and the diff fluid is crystal clear….and all of the fluid is still in the housing! lol the “other” truck i had to use rtv sealant so that the diffs wouldn’t leak! the amount of time i save wrenching is priceless, not to mention the money i save from not having to replace plastics all the time. plus when you call tekno customer service with your ridiculous questions like mine, they actually answer their phones and help you out with whatever questions you might have. also they are constantly working to make all their vehicles better, so don’t think they release a kit and forget about it! it’s great how involved they are with their stuff and it goes to show you that they really care about what they do. thank you tekno for a great truck and bomb products! i may drive bad but when i wheel your rides i look like a rockstar!

    I have been racing the SCT410 for nearly a yr now with great success. This is a very durable super easy to drive 4×4 Truck that needs NO OTHER MODS out of the box to be competitive. The kit was extremely easy to build thanks to perfectly choreographed instructions and excellent build quality. No need to file or grind anything to make it “fit right”. In a yr of racing the Tekno SCT410 has shown exceptional wear characteristics needing very few consumable parts. With plenty of hop options available from Tekno RC you can always “pimp your ride”
    I am very pleased with my Tekno RC purchase and will continue to buy more quality products :)
