Gene,
Is there any thought of making rear turbuckles. Since the front ones are going to look sweet I think there should be a match for the rear. Then I think all off the factory aluminum would be replaced.

I run the JConcepts Mugen body and it is a pretty good fit. Like you said I would drill the holes first before you paint.

I also switched to the Pro-Line air filter as the body runs a little bit on the low side.

I have a little dilemma on my hands.

The chance for me to buy approximately $10000 worth of Kyosho cars,parts and running gear for a very cheap price recently came to my attention.
A local RC collector needed to make some room in a storage unit.
Of course for what I paid I have made off like a bandit.

My dilemma is this, I have always wanted Kyosho stuff but never really had the cash to spend on it. Well after this purchase I now have 8 1/8th scale cars sitting on my shelves.
2 CEN TR's (one is a parts kit)
2CEN Buggies
1 Kyosho STR
1 Kyosho 777 SP1
1 Kyosho 7.5 (with every hop up ever made)
1 TTR S3

Unfortunately I must sell the CEN cars, I have no room and I need the money. Except I really dont want to part with this CEN stuff, I love the CEN cars to much. In selling the CEN cars I am also giving up a nice sponsorship from Competition RC the Canadian CEN distributor. I have browsed the Kyosho threads on both RCTECH and Sgrid and have found them to feel almost overcrowded. I really enjoy the family feeling the CEN threads portray.

I guess I just have to suck it up and sell the CEN stuff.
If any one is interested please PM me, I can give you details. I would perfer to ship within Canada.

Why don't you sell the Kyosho's then? They are the older models anyway.

Default Thank you

Thanks to everyone for all of your help this season. I really learned a lot about setting up my Matrix. I live in WI and the weather is starting to get really cold so we will be moving indoors pretty soon.

When I first had this truck I was unsure if I had made the right choice, but after working on set-up and making a few upgrades the truck really came to life. I loved driving the truck and I can not wait until next year to fire it up again. I am pretty sure I ended up taking second or third for the points season(it might have been first, but I had engine trouble).

Anyway, thanks again and good luck to all of you fellow Cen drivers
