Well said Lockmouth. Sorry bout the mislabel. But it's good that things can be easy going like you say. I just started racing this year also. And it's a huge learning curve. Trying to work my schedule so I can go to the RC Pro finals in Dallas this year. Those big races are a lot of fun and I enjoy seeing how I stack up against other drivers from different regions.

I know we have talked about this before, but has anyone changed their prefrence on wheels? 1/2" offset...Zero offset/standard???

I began the season with the 1/2" but I am now running the standard/zero and it seems to be fine. I did have to adjust my droop screws to reduce travel (otherwise the hubs rub)

Just wondering what others are running??

I've been running the 1/2 off-set losi wheel with cut tires on them... Really lovin that set-up. My buddy runs Standard off-set an his TR is dialed!!!! It turn awesome with either off-set, but on the smaller tracks standard off-set can't be beat

What do you mean by "cut tires" Do you actually cut the tires?

Lots of sweepers..the offset wheels really make it easier to finess..

tight and technical.. run no offset.. for cornering.. although on this truck I really dont think it does make much difference unless your running on a loose surface.. Then to offsets will really show their advantage

Lockmouth,

Are you using the Matrix Buggy chassis braces or another brand?

Any news on the small gear conversion - I'd really like to get that done. Can you just use all three diffs from the buggy? Do you have to get an alternate engine mount?

With the new LPR wheels, I like running KMW 1/4" hub extenders with non offset wheels. No rubbing at all and in between offset & non offset.

Cool

I just bought a CEN Matrix Truggy and im looking for who makes a body, other then CEN. I know some of you run a Mugen body and i would rather not. I could not find one from Proline.
Thanks for any help. Oh ya Gene i guess half the parts on this Truggy are from you, so iguess you and i are going to become goood freinds

The Mugen bodies are the best fitting bodies you will find.

The Proline Crowd pleazer MSR (disco'd) is very good, I have the Proline MBX5T body and it fits great. Just make sure you drill your holes before you paint.

RC bodies.net ( i think thats it) has a very nice direct fit CEN body.

Jconcepts has a few bodies I believe will fit very well but havent tried, one is the MBX5T and the other is the Xray truggy body. Look very nice.
