One of the more well-known names in the world of R/C racing, Tekno RC, is taking their performance to a new platform. Joining a number of other brands that have been riding the wave of monster truck resurgence, they’ve introduced their own high-end radio-controlled monster truck kit.
The Tekno MT410 is a 1/10-scale electric 4-wheel drive monster truck kit that has a heritage of performance. Based on the Tekno ET48 platform, this R/C truck uses an aluminum chassis (4mm thick) and aluminum chassis components (shock towers, shock bodies, braces, motor mount, and more) to ensure durability. The chassis design itself uses a low center of gravity, helping it stay grounded under higher-speed maneuvers.

With this kit, you’ll need to supply your own electronics (radio system and electronic speed control), motor, battery, steering servo, wheels, and tires.
