Tekno ET410 Build – Part 9 – Final Assembly | CompetitionX

Tekno ET410 Build - Part 9 - Final Assembly | CompetitionX

The final steps in the Tekno ET410 are the wheels and tires, Velcro install and body.

For the wheels and tires, I’m using:

• #8262-03 Pro-Line Racing Positron T 2.2″, MC Compound, www.prolineracing.com
• #7852 Team Associated Truck Hex Wheels, White, www.teamassociated.com

Amazing paintwork by the one and only Sharkbait Designworks! This dood is simply amazing!

Build Notes:
Tekno has included three wing shims with the ET410; a 0° (flat), 1.5° and 3°. You can place in different configurations to adjust the rear downforce of the ET410.
Step 1:

Attach the wing to the rear of the ET410. The kit wing shim calls for the 0°, so that’s what we’ll start with.
Step 2:

Slip on your wheel and tire combo of choice and secure with the serrated wheel nuts.
Step 3:

If you’re using the included Velcro, go ahead and install that now. Use the matching piece on the body. I’ll be using both the Velcro and body clips. I plan on airing this truggy out and want to minimize any air under the body!

So there ya go – a full, step-by-step build of the ET410. What an amazing vehicle – time to get it out on the track and have some fun!
