Default Going racing with GoPro headcam footage, Tekno SCT410 and Tekno EB48

I've got some new racing footage and commentary on a large outdoor 1/8th scale track. Check out the video as I take my new Tekno EB48 1/8th scale buggy for its first drives and also my Tekno SCT410 trucks first outdoor race!

Yep! The truck is easier to jump on indoor tracks. But these big outdoor jumps gave me some troubles for sure. Just need to learn to drive it better

I dont get it though... she has a 2000kv motor with 4S and it still has no air control. Whats up with this rig? I thought it was supposed to be like the best one?

The Tekno truck is a very planted machine and can be driven HARD without much regard to others My friend was having the nose down issue while jumping and he replaced the pistons to get more pack. I drove it this past weekend and did not notice any issues.

Yep, new pistons are on my list. The nose down issue can be tamed with different weight oils and springs, I don't have the problem on indoor track with smaller jumps. Just the big outdoor jumps make it tougher to fly level.

I put some 1/8 OFNA 20mm truggy springs and its plenty stiffer now and it is a little better.
My only issue is the mid-air control. Its got none to pull the front end up if need be.
And on 4S, its not because of lack of power.... She needs to practice with it more but I wish it was just easier to drive.
I bought it for her because I thought it would be very stable and easy to drive over the jumps and stuff. Boy was I wrong. I got her the one thats the biggest hand-full

And yes it can be driven hard with little regard for others. With my little 3lb 1/10th scale buggy, I literally dive out of the way when she comes around the corners

Yea not sure why mid-air control is so tricky with it. I think it is just the smaller tires (less rotating mass) compared to the Tekno EB48. But really I have no problems except for those gigantic jumps, indoor is fine.

Ahh. I think with more practice, I'll be fine on the big jumps, just takes some getting used to how the truck flys.

I maybe wrong but if you use thinner fluid in the center diff dont that direct more power to the front wheels ? I use 7-5-3 in my "ahem" Slash 4x4 and you can really see the front wheels pulling the truck around. If memory serves that is what i used in the jammin.

with that thin of oil, I would think it would be more like "really see the front wheel pulling the truck around"

Yea I have tried a few different diff oil setups. My last was 5, 7, 3. I will probably go back to a little lighter oils soon, I liked it a bit better that way.
