It's quite the pain in the #@! The easiest way is to have a 2nd set of hands hold the dogbones/diff carriers while you place in the screws. If you're by yourself I end up removing either the front or rear diff and assembling it from there. It's easier to place the diff with 1 less dogbone to worry about. I definately like my mugen's center diff better as it has an extra set of screws on the top that hold the center diff together.

I tried the rear Eck Tec braces, but I did not like them. The Cen braces run on balls which gets rid of any binding and seems to be more forgiving (hard landins, ect). With the Ect Tec braces, my car felt more like a Kyosho (very floaty and less predictable) even with the same setup (3' toe, 2' anti). It is nice because you can change in 1/2' amounts, but the track I tried them on did not like it. I do like the front barces - because less kick up in the front gives more steering.

Arghh! CEN's new OEM cross-pin diffs use plastic housings! I already have Gene's diff kit with the stock aluminum housings, but I decided to order MX212/13 anyway. I guess the plastic ones won't leak as much But if you already have the truggy I would recommend Gene's hardened pins that use the stock/sturdier alum cases. I'm going to try to post some pics tonight.

EDIT oh nm, someone already posted pics in the buggy forum. The buggy comes with plastics one's standard.

Yes there is a way to keep the heat from tearing and ruining the body. Just go to like a lowes, home depot or any place like that and they sell this tape that is for ducts but it is not your ordinary duct tape it is bright chrome looking and runs about 7-8 dollars but it will last you for ever. I will try to get the name of it and a picture of it also.

Ok guys this is what we all been waiting for. Mark has put alot of time into this project, so we could have a nice body to go alone with this bad ass truggy.

As you can tell from the pictures this is one low, mean looking ass body.
This body also come with Mark's specially designed RAM AIR :bow This design will allow your motor to cool faster and better than it will with any other body.

Guys if you want the best and only body made just for the CEN MATRIX TR, then look no farther.

Contact Mark: sand9818@bellsouth.net or on his site: www.rcbodyworks.net
