Tekno ET410 4WD 1:10 Truggy Build | CompetitionX

Originally published on CompetitionX

It’s no secret that Tekno is rising to the top of the competitive RC heap – quality products, extremely durable and man do they perform! Even with all that going for them, the San Diego plant is still popping out some surprises … enter the ET410, a 4WD 1:10 scale Stadium Truck (or Truggy). This was certainly not something people were expecting, but it has created a HUGE boom that is being well received.

We were lucky enough to get one of these trucks to do a build and review with, so let’s get right to the build first. If you saw the build of the Tekno EB410 (here:
http://www.competitionx.com/rc-blog-builds/tekno-eb410-4wd-buggy-build/), you’ll see that most of the process is about the same. That’s because Tekno has made the EB410 (buggy) and ET410 (truck) compatible with 95% of it’s parts. Great news for those wanting to run both 4-wheel classes without having to carry twice as many parts!
