Starting my 410SL build as I'm getting back into the hobby since my sons are interested in it as well. While I've installed parts and pieces I've never gone full build before. Because of this, anyone have a 410 they've built and have any advise on absolute must have upgrades? I'd rather upgrade on things now vs when it's all together. I get it's the driver not the car and it's all about finding what you need/wants vs others, but sometimes there's parts to add or upgrade that just makes sense. I'm not a pro by any means and will just be doing mostly locals on a shorter, dirt track.

These are two things I think are essential:

TKR6635C - Center Diff Top Plate and Fan Mount (carbon fiber, EB410)

TKR6712A - Shock Caps (7075, emulsion, black ano, 2pcs)
 
Tekno's optional clamping servo horn or something similar is top of the must do list. The other item I'd recommend having is the aluminum shock caps.

The funny thing about the stock composite shock caps is, I've not had any issues on my ET410 for the past five years. Second run(?) on the SCT410SL, and, POOF- one of the front shock caps jumped off a couple of the threads. I'm running the stock composite caps currently on the SCT410 2.0, and things are good. I would think the heavier 2.0 has quite a bit more more pressure inside the shock bodies, but no issues. Weird. 😁 🤷‍♂️

Thanks. Appreciate it!
 
Aside from previous post I also have upgraded both sets of hub carriers. in my opinion another weak link as there is not enough material to hold the smaller outer bearing
ETK 2023 rear hub set
ETK2102 front spindle carriers
both aluminum Being a less than average driver i crash more often and although I have not broken these on the SL I have replaced several times on my EB410 ,on which the sct410SL is based Wish tekno would add a bit more material to support that bearing on both ends
