I just realized the SCT410.3 was released in 2015. Now that the EB and ET are in 2.0 revision. Is the SCT410 the next in line for some upgrades? Or is there no enough interest to do so?

SCT is pretty much dying off, I have talked to some reps from TEKNO and they said there were no plans to update the SCT anytime soon, they have way too many other things going on with the other platforms.

Dont tell folks at SDRC in San Diego that. Tekno 410.3 is the cats meow. A real buggy chaser. A good 2S battery, Tekin 4300 with the RX8 esc and SEND IT!!

I've wondered myself if TLR or Tekno are ever going to make a new 4wd SCT - they are both around what 6-7 years old? ancient... I'm guessing the class just isn't popular enough for them to invest into the R&D, as they are both still "good enough" and only compete with each other's same age design.
I kind of doubt TLR would ever bother now - it seems Horizon is all about the RTR world just like Team Associated. Leaving only Tekno, why would they bother to spend the money when they have no competition, it makes sense not to. Even still, I would love to see a new SCT based on the ET410, a 2wd and 4wd version. I'd get both! I'm aware of the prostar conversion but I don't own an ET410 so that isn't cost effective, and if I did I'd race it in the class it was made for.

I agree, no point in releasing something new if nobody is offering anything better. In contrast I don't think it would take too much effort to revamp the 2.0 into an SCT, but still more trouble than it's worth at this point.

I recently traveled from Texas to Florida over several months in my RV and raced at a handful of tracks along the way. I did see a respectable turnout for 4WD SC with TEKNO pretty much the standard.

I believe the only thing holding back the class is the 2S limit by ROAR... they have it all wrong and need to amend the rule to limit to a 3660 can instead, there are many SCT motors in the 2000KV range where running 4S is extremely efficient. I once raced my SCT with the nitros and made a full 20 min main on a single charge with very low temps on 4S... it was a blast! If they started hosting 20 min mains for SCT then I guarantee the class would explode overnight!
