Tekno EB410 4WD Buggy Build

Tekno EB410 4WD Buggy Build

Tekno RC pretty much shocked the world when they released info about a 1:10 scale buggy coming to market. They’ve had some great success in the 1:8 scale scene, so it only seems fitting that a smaller car could do some damage to the other manufacturers.

Looking at this ride, I’ve come to the conclusion that Tekno took hints from their 1:8 scale program and shrunk them down to 1:10 scale – the parts are beefy, drivetrain is bulletproof and the handling is exceptional. One of the best parts is that even though the EB410 looks like a tank, it’s actually one of the lightest buggies on the market!
