Tekno RC SCT410 option parts

Tekno RC introduce new option parts for the SCT410 short course truck. Available are different spring sets, an aluminium centre driveshaft, lightened motor mount, as well as lightened diff couplers and differential outdrives. Starting with the springs, they are made from corrosion resistant steel, come in black colour and are colour coded for easy identification. Available are three different 65mm front and three 80mm rear springs. Next up is an aluminium centre driveshaft made from 7075 material and coming gun metal anodised. With only half the weight of the stock shaft the part makes for less rotating mass and therefore quicker spool-up and acceleration. Also new are lightened diff couplers that weight 5g less compared to the stock part. They are made from hardened steel and designed to withstand the rigours of modified short course brushless motors. Other new drivetrain parts are the lightened differential outdrives. They save 12g, are made from hardened steel for ultimate durability and are sold as pair. Last but not least comes the new lightened motor mount insert. Made from lightweight aluminium and coming gunmetal anodised the insert will save another 5g and will fill out the gunmetal look of the truck.

Tekno RC SCT410 4×4 SC truck

Tekno RC have announced the newest addition to their stable of RC vehicles, the SCT410 1/10th 4×4 Short Course Truck. The SCT410 shares many parts with the EB48 1/8th Electric Buggy, so you know it will be able to carve up the track and take a beating. There are many new parts on the SCT to keep weight to a minimum, including new narrower arms, lighter steering blocks, spindle carriers, rear hubs and an all new lightweight drivetrain. Add some sturdy adjustable body mounts and a front/rear bumper system and you have the SCT that everyone has been waiting for. true 1/8th scale roots with 1/10th scale weight and agility. Standard 12mm hex wheels will bolt right on (SCTE offset) and existing 7.4v SCT power systems will have no trouble pushing the SCT410 around the track. The SCT410 will be sold in race kit form and should be available in January 2013.

Tekno RC Big Bone driveshaft for Slash 4×4

The Tekno RC Big Bone driveshaft and outdrives for the Slash 4×4 and Stampede 4×4 solves the many issues associated with the stock center driveline.  First off it’s fat yet it’s still extremely lightweight. It’s a dog bone rather than a simple splined shaft and as such will not bind, split, or bend the way the stock shaft does. The laser etched shaft is machined from high quality aluminium and anodized for incredible wear. Newly designed hardened steel outdrives on either end replace the weaker stock parts for the ultimate center driveline available for the Slash 4×4 and Stampede 4×4 vehicles.

Tekno RC Losi Ten-SCTE option parts

Tekno RC have released new option parts for the Losi Ten-SCTE short course truck. The M6 driveshafts and lightened outdrives feature the ‘big ball’ design with a larger diameter outdrive ball whose design provides smoother suspension action and prevents the axle from hitting the outdrives on full compression. Included in the set are new outdrives to accept the redesigned driveshafts and also new stub axles to allow for more steering angle. All parts are super lightweight yet rigid thanks to their hardened surface.
