Josh, I actually had some trouble getting the chrome-top to line up without chewing up the wheels. Did you cut away at your chasis?

LOL that it is. I also use this one as well. It is a perfect fit for the TR.

I am using a GS flywheel. As soon as I set the truck on the box it pretty much is turning over. The flywheel allows it to be pretty much flush with the chassis.

No problem with that while running a GO engine. To much power for a rock to stop.

I am running the .21 5 port turbo. They now have a .28 out as well. I plan on sticking with the .21. If I make a change it will be up to the 7 port tubo.

Thanks, I am not for sure what to run this year. Last year I ran the LRP Spec .28, Werks .28 , and the Jammin .21. I liked them all, but I grew to be a huge fan of the fuel milage of the Jammin.
Decisions...Decisions

I think Cen is coming out with a racing line of engines.

Default Corsa Engine

I found this on the CEN website:
"CEN Racing will be distributing a new engine line aimed towards racers that demand performance within a budget. The Corsa (Italian for racing) engine line is designed with a power curve that produces the big hors power that even club racers demand these days on the race scene. When your average run of the mill motor just doesn’t cut it… Corsa engines provide the snap and power you need to stay competitive. - Coming Soon"

Does anyone know a release date?

Hi,

I am buying a CEN Matrix TR Arena and i was wondering what everyones opinion on this truck is. The truck only has about 3/4 of a gallon through the tank. I am wanting to race this truck, i dont know much about truggys just the 4wd big trucks. i am wanting to know how to set it up to be a good basic race truck but not something to crazy that i cant handle and start breaking stuff like crazy. what are good suspension set ups and what and gear oil? i have heard alot about people putting oil and grease in different gears on the truck. what are the advantages and disadvantages of this. will i be able to race the truck as it is with everything stock in it. Or whats everyone opinion on that.

Thanks
