I am using Kyosho STR diffs front/center/rear with a 52T spur gear. The center/rear universal would bind a bit when I would roll it on the ground. I ground down the the pinion gear end a couple of mm and I ground the end that goes into the center diff a little and kept the ball end round. everything spins freely now

I have to buy a new lid now because my painter tried to rip me off. I sent him a couple of bodies to paint and I never received them back. Personally, I think he sold them. He swears that he mailed them insured yet he cannot show me proof. I have been trying to get a hold of him since January and he has been avoiding me. I have been keeping an eye out to see if I see anybody with a RC BodyWorks body painted like my buggy without the checkers. If I can't get my bodies back I WILL be getting a REFUND of the cost of my lids!

My stock plates stipped out and I now have to use lock nuts on the screws. I must be hard on my equipment.

Gene, do you use nuts with the new plates?

I do, but with the new plates you don't have to.

yeh but the cen one has that fuel spill lip around the fill door thats suppose to drain out under the truck well that drain gets plugged with dirt and does not do its job then the fuel that spills into that catch lip attracts sand and dirt therefore building up around the fill door and eventually getting inbetween the lid and not allowing it to seal causing an air leak . in theory cens design is good but it does not work well in the off road application. i looked at the mugan tank but it seems to long compared to the cen i know that a different tank wont be a direct drop in but something a little closer would be nice so i just wanted to see if anyone has swapped out their tank for a diffrent brand

I need a new 66t spur gear and a 23mm blue wheel hex for the Matrix truggy. I have the 23mm nuts just missing one threaded blue part.
I have a brand new center diff pulled from a rtr Matrix buggy kit. It is complete except the brake outdrives. Includes the metal spur, internal gears, al diff cup etc. Let me know if you have an extra tr arena spur for trade. Thanks!

Guys,


This is the engine mount that fits right on the CEN Buggy and Truggy from KHZ ? :

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/7579

If using this one, engine mount plates are needed or this thing replace the whole setup ?

thanks,
