I run an 8.5t in my losi 22 3.0. I don't find it too hard to control but I'm not sure how experienced you are at driving RC's

At GFX we only run a mod 2wd class.
90% of the 2wd cars at GFX are running a 8.5T motor.
99% run between 7.5T - 10.5T depending on their skill level.
If you have a radio with EPA adjustments you can get a 8.5T and use the throttle EPA to ease into the speed.

All depends on your experience, what motors you already have and radio adjustments.

I'm not sure what the wheel off-set is for the Tekno 410.3, (maybe SCTE?), but the AKA Gridirons work really well in 1/8th so I bet these same AKA Gridirons for SC would do well:

Otherwise I'd run the JConcepts Double Dee's.

Both look similar.

I'm not sure if the Blockades for SC & 1/8th are similar in pin height, however they likely are - I ran them on my 1/8th at the beginning of the season when things were damp and we didnt have the tarps and found they were good, but then when we had control of the dampness with the tarps I found them a bit slippery and did not hook up for me at all anymore.  Once I switched to Gridirons, a smaller/shorter pin, I picked up over a second a lap.  The taller pin of the Blockade made me "skate" around on top of the dirt.  something to consider.  This is why having two, maybe three pairs of tires in slightly different heights, helps. 

For anyone thinking, "man, I need to buy 10 pairs of tires?!" - don't think that you do.  I ran an entire season in 1/10th 4WD on Double Dee's and 3/4 of last season in 1/8th on those Gridirons and I'll use them this summer too. 

As Ryan Lutz pointed out some good advice on his website, he basically says to pick a brand, buy 3 different sets of tire pin sizes to cover you for most track conditions and you'll have 90% of your race days covered".

That is great advice  D.

The SCT410 takes TLR wheels for offset.
