;e TEN-MT features a composite plastic chassis, which
helps reduce the overall cost of the truck and weighs
a little less than machined aluminum. ;e edges of
the chassis are raised slightly to increase chassis
sti;ness and help keep debris out. A long plastic
brace spans the gap between the front and rear
gearboxes, and it further increases rigidity.
Like most chassis, this has countersunk holes
and flathead screws to keep it smooth. But
unlike most chassis, it has small ribs under the
front and rear gearboxes, which reduce surface
area and help the chassis slide over obstacles.
One thing that makes this chassis unique is the
bottom-feed battery tray. A pivoting door covers up
the battery-size hole in the chassis, and a rotating lock
keeps the battery in place. On the top side is a cage that
protects the battery, and it is equipped with foam spacers
to keep the battery from bouncing around. It’s designed to
accept 2S and 3S battery packs.
Dynamite’s Fuze 130-amp speed control connects the
battery to the motor. It’s capable of handling up to 3S LiPo
batteries, and it features a 6-volt BEC and a brushless cooling
fan. Functions such as brake force, reverse force, timing, and
motor rotation can be adjusted through the button on the on/
o; switch or an optional programming card. Mounting tabs
and two screws are used to secure the speed control to the
chassis, instead of the double-sided tape that we are used
to seeing. ;e speed control is connected to a Dynamite Fuze
550-size 3800Kv brushless motor. Both are waterproof but
the included AVC receiver
isn’t, so it’s protected inside a
molded plastic housing from
splashing water and debris.

;e TEN-MT comes equipped with
aggressively treaded, soft-rubber all-
terrain tires supported by foam inserts.
;e tires come glued to 2.2-inch rims
with a multispoke design. Covers for
the center of the wheel are included,
and they hide the wheel nut for a more
scale look. Under that cap is a large 8mm
wheel nut, which is a tick larger than the
7mm nuts used on most 1/10-scale vehicles.
;e 12mm hex that spins the wheels is standard
for 1/10-scale vehicles.
tires feature an
pattern that gives the
TEN-MT grip on all surfaces. A center cap covers
8mm wheel nut.
