Default blue springs in front

This weekend I put the cen blue springs on the front of the truggy. It really helped the handling in the tight sections. It would be worth a try if you haven't done it.

Sportwerks springs work great and there is a variety of choices.

Josh I still haven't figured out what I am going to do for the Pro Series Finals. I have a wedding in Madison, so I am stuck. I hate being rained out!
I'll let you know what I decide. I would really like to finish the series strong.

Default Pro Series WI Finals

Well, I skipped the wedding to race this weekend and it paid off. This was the Pro Series WI Finals hosted by CheeseCity XtremeRC in Monroe, WI. I finished 6th in the A main which moved me to 3rd in the overall point standings for the 08 Year. Fellow CEN driver Josh Thompson finished the series in 4th place.

I am not for sure if there are videos, but I will try to get some pics up soon.

Thanks to everyone who has helped with setup advice. My truck is working better than ever.

Team CEN drivers, Josh Thompson pictured left and Nino Tarara pictured right finished the 2008 RC Pro Wisconsin Series in the top five. The RC Pro Wisconsin Series was a best 2 out of 3 round Series that included a Final. With their dedication to represent Team CEN these guys ran the Series hard and did what they could no matter what. Nino ended up skipping a wedding that was on the rescheduled date of the Finals. This is a great start to show Wisconsin drivers that CEN is for real.

In my opinion these are the only two things needed to make the TR Arena more durable.

If you do go with a BCE chassis upgrade, you will need to run the Hot Bodies ring and pinion gear for the diffs or switch all the diffs over to Kyosho ST-RR diffs

Does it make any difference to switch from the stock chassi braces to the Matrix buggy ones?
