This is the Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Scale Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit. The SCT410.3 is an updated version of the original SCT410 with a slew of updated parts and improvements. The SCT410.3 leapfrogs over the 4×4 SC competition in terms of performance, durability, and value. Tekno RC has their customers’ best interests at heart so there is a clear path to simply upgrade your original SCT410 if you already have one. But there’s also nothing like a fresh new kit that goes together like butter!

With the SCT410.3, Tekno wanted to improve performance and increase value to the customer without increasing the price or compromising on the great qualities of the original. To do this, they went through the entire platform and made changes accordingly.

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
Excellent kit from Tekno! Parts quality is very good and the build is super smooth with easy to understand instructions. Would be nice to have the option of a higher priced 'team' version of the kit that includes the optional upgrades (i.e. aluminum diff cross pins, aluminum hinge pin braces, etc.) so you wouldn't have to get the parts separately. Overall, excellent! Highly recommend this truck!

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
I wrote a review 10 months ago. I am going to write a new review a try to do a better job of what I like and dislike. To better understand the writer, I race 1/10th 2wd & 4wd SCT and 1/8th E-Buggy. I race 2wd spec and mod Team Associated and 4wd SCT Tekno SCT410.3 and the .2 buggy. I have 9 other trucks and buggies to choose from but this is what I have stuck with for now. First, I'm going to start with dislike. 1) The composite cross-pins in each diff. I use aluminum. 2) The stock set-up. I know by now everyone knows the stock set-up is crap. If you are nose diving and you are close to stock, its probably from chassis slapping the rear of the truck. 3) I have very precise scales and the truck is off balance with a Tekin 4300HD motor, RX8 ESC, Protek 150 servo and a Trinity 7150MaH 100C battery. You need approx. 38-45g in front of the servo and 60-70g just in front of the shock tower on the batter side. Second, what I like. I like most of everything else on the truck. I would have liked to have seen the aluminum hinge pin holders A,B,C & D along with aluminum diff cross pins but in my opinion, they do not slow the truck down. Final thoughts and set-up. My shocks are built with 8x1.4 tapered down pistons. I am using 32.5 wt AE oil in the front and 30 wt AE oil rear. I feel the truck has a high roll center and made all of my camber links longer. I only run 2 degrees of anti-squat and it jumps better and obviously handles bumps better. I run full rear toe in and 1.5 degree front toe out. It works for most tracks without changing anything. Update 8/11/16: I am still running 8 x 1.4 pistons but I have increased the oil to 40 AE front, 35AE real and pink springs both front and rear. The previous setup is too soft and allows the truck to transfer weight too quickly. This new setup does not throw the weight to the front coming off power and visa-versa. I truck jumps very flat and the dampening is very good for virtually all indoor tracks at least as a starting point. IMPORTANT: make sure you do not run bump steer with this truck. You can check by holding the truck up in the air with the tires off with the A-arms flat and find something that is parallel to the outside of your wheel mount (Stub Axle). Pull the A-arm to compress the shock and the wheel mount should stay on the same line. If it moves inward, you have positive bump steer and out is negative. You can change it by add/removing washers under the Ackerman or at the steering spindle. Also, It seems to be best not to run more than 2* of anti-squat as the truck wants to nose dive at times. I know its a lot to read but I hope it helps.

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
Kit is great. I recommend the alum servo horn, springs and 6 hole pistons. Wear is minimal, performance is fantastic and durability is incredible. Tekno got it right.

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
Exceptional kit. The best SC truck out in my opinion. The added weight is what makes this truck so good. It's a beast, built solid and well engineered. The diff screws everybody talks about being hard to get threaded in... Not an issue at all. They go together very easily with good tools. I don't understand why people can't get them in. Don't use power tools, build the kit by hand. I only have two gripes: #1 The center Diff Mounting brackets being plastic (kinda chinsey feeling). #2 The weird suspension set up that comes box stock with the truck. The spring rates & oil weights are kinda an odd choice (front is real stiff, and the back is very soft). Its a VERY quality kit, very durable, very race oriented, very easy and fun to build. I've built TWO so far, and I give this kit a solid "A". Tekno did a great job! Put a big nasty 550 motor in it! And plan on buying extra Pink & Green shock springs!

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
Got my kit 5/21. Instructions are super easy to follow and the kit overall was very easy to put together. I have not had a chance to race yet but from the looks and feel of the truck it should be very durable. The one recommendation that i have is to try to tap some of the screw holes in the diff cases. I stripped a few screw heads and the hexes become slots. Some of the camber links can be tough to thread. But all the hard work will be worth it when its finished because you will have the most durable, best looking ride at the track.

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
The best truck I have owned knocked 1 1/2 second off my indoor lap times and 2 off my out door times with the same electronics the last truck was a L-si 2.0 4x4 or slopfest. The truck has no slop after 15-20 packs thought it so smooth a quite when it jumps and lands. Think I will paint a body brown a yellow to match the track make it bled right in so they can't see coming thanks amain fast shipping great price

Tekno RC SCT410.3 Competition 1/10 Electric 4WD Short Course Truck Kit
My new SCT410.3 came Friday morning and I stayed up all night putting it together. I couldn't wait until morning to give it a try so I went to the park next door at 3:00 in the morning and drove it straight into a tree at full speed in the dark. The truck showed absolutely no damage, but I decided it best to wait until the sun came up to give it a true test-run. The truck really ran well and I was very impressed with the stability around corners at high speed as well as it's ability to accelerate in a straight line in poor traction conditions. I have made a few adjustments to the truck, but most of the time I went back to the stock settings. I did lower the center of gravity a half centimeter or so by adjusting the droop screw and that did seem to make a significant difference in stability. I had no trouble putting it together and the directions were well written and clear. I did not have any problem putting the diffs together as another reviewer had mentioned, but I did crack the first hex I installed as I was tightening the set screw. The hexes do seem rather light weight for a truck like this. I had a replacement in my box so it didn't hold me up at all, but be careful installing these to keep them from cracking. Overall a great truck so far and I can't wait to get some good racing in this summer!
