The TEN-SCTE platform is one of the most successful 4WD electric short course platforms of all time. It has dominated its class at tracks all over the world and proven it has what it takes to win a ROAR National Championship. The TEN-SCTE 2.0 kit builds on the success of this racing juggernaut with innovative engineering and technology born from team driver expertise, CAD and countless hours of testing.
The weight bias of the chassis is further back and lower than the original, making for more consistent handling and faster lap times. Because the TEN -SC TE 2.0 is in kit form, you have the freedom to build it to your exact specifications with the power system and electronics of your choice. Engineers have eliminated the weight of the battery tray and replaced it with thin foam pads mounted directly to the chassis. They’ve also made the battery hold down posts adjustable so you can shift the position of the battery forward or aft as needed. Drive inserts are now molded into the diff cases and a reengineered seal system protects internal components. The result is a drive train that lasts longer and delivers more consistent performance. This proven body design delivers all the downforce you need for cornering fast and staying in control when flying down the straights. Air under the body is channeled through strategically placed outlets during jumps so the truck is more stable while airborne.
Before you start making changes on your TEN-TEN-SCTE 2.0 Off-Road
Racing truck, you need to make a few decisions. You will find the
best adjustment will become a personal decision based on the “feel”
each of these adjustments yield. Never make more than one change
at a time. If the change you made works adversely, or doesn’t address
your need, return to the previous position and try something else. For

ways to set up a car. The rules we follow can sometimes vary with dif
ferent driving styles or different setup styles.
Always measure the droop of the TEN-TEN-SCTE 2.0 with the shocks on the truck. Droop is al
ways measured from the center of the top shock mount to the center of the bottom shock screw
and is usually accomplished with digital calipers for a precise measurement. More droop (travel)
in the front has more on-power steering and allows the truck to roll more on the rear when
on throttle and increases rear traction when exiting corners. More droop (travel) in the rear
increases off-power steering and allows the truck to roll on the front when off throttle. More
front and rear droop accelerates better in bumps when going straight, but can cause the truck
to traction roll in rough turns. Less front and rear droop slides over bumps better in turns and
may be better on high-speed and high traction tracks.
Front Camber Links:
The lower camber link locations on the tower have more camber gain (total camber change
through the suspension travel). Running the camber tie rod in the lower holes increases off-
power steering and makes the vehicle more aggressive; however, you may lose some consisten
cy. More camber gain is good on small tight tracks. We find that running less camber gain in the
front suits the car the best for consistency and steering balance. On the TEN-SCTE 2.0, we also
offer the ability to change the length of the camber link. A longer front camber link makes the
vehicle feel stiffer, and this keeps the truck flatter with less roll and increases high-speed steer
ing. A short front camber link rolls more and makes the vehicle more aggressive. Too short of a
front link may make the vehicle feel twitchy.
Rear Camber Links:
The TEN-SCTE 2.0 has only two vertical rows of camber locations on the rear tower. A longer
rear camber link provides less roll and improves stability and traction. A shorter rear camber
link has more roll and increases steering and better handling in the bumps. By raising the inner
camber link up, you increase the roll stiffness of the vehicle. This can make the vehicle easier
to drive, but may reduce corner speed and hurt bump absorption. Running “A” in the rear hub
generates more corner rotation entering the turn, but decreases steering on exit. Running “B”
in the hub is more stable entering the turn and increases steering on exit.
