The TTR hubs are excellent. Nothing wrong with saving money.
I actually like the original TTR hubs better the the lightened red ones and the CEN hubs.

I own a TTR also, so Ive played with many different hubs.

I've had problems with the cups wearing fast on my trug as well. I thought they were updating these to a harder on to fix this? Has that happened yet? I remeber breaking an outdrive and scouring the lhs to find one and nothing fit.

2 new Matrix hop up parts from Machine's Racing Products. Both CNC Alum 7075 parts are twice as strong as the stock parts.

Over the past few weeks ive been preparing a Matrix TR, i had never driven a truggy or any other Nitro offroader, raced 1/10th onroad or 1/10th offroad. Ive had about 20mins practice with the truggy thus far and i must say it ROCKS!!! so much fun to be had with one of these.

Next weekend i shall attempt to race it... should be quite a good time.

Guys, I just got back from the Futaba Nitro Challenge. There where 5 CEN MATRIX TR tuggies at this race, 1 Sportmans, 3 Experts, 1 Pro. We all made the A-Main and finish in the top 10

I ran a Proto-Type BCE C2X PRO chassis on my TR. This make the Matrix lighter, plus with the gear small gear conversion really put the TR on another level.

Has the front body mounts been lowered too?
I have a Mugen wing mount on the way and am looking forward to getting the rear of the body a little more level with the front.

Wait till Bill ( BCE ) release the other parts

If ya think the Matrix TR is not a contender... get use to finishing behind them This truggy is bullet proofed, I might just sell my tools because I never need them
