Review: Tekno RC EB410 4WD 1:10 Scale Race Buggy

Tekno RC’s EB410 has become one of the top contenders in the 1:10 Scale 4WD arena. Tough parts, a stout drivetrain and exceptional handling have really impressed us – we just can’t get enough driving in on one day! We’ve built it. We’ve run it. We love it!

Not only does this buggy go together well (see our build blog here: http://www.competitionx.com/rc-blog-builds/tekno-eb410-4wd-buggy-build/, Tekno has also added a few trick little features that set it off from other buggies.

Bottom Line: The Tekno EB410 is an absolute blast to drive right out of the box. The build was actually kind of boring, only because it went together so well. No hand fitment, no fiddling with wacky-designed parts or confusing instructions. Then there's the handling and speed - the kit setup was right on point. I dabbled a bit with the tuning and the EB410 got even better but I've been told that slight changes to the diff fluids and shock oils would make this 4-wheeler even better. Honestly, I can't imagine that - this car is that good out of the box! Tekno entered the 1:10 scale 4WD market with a sure winner!
