Thanks..

I will be there.

Big Pudin qualified 2nd at round 1 of the RC Pro South Series and lapped the field until his plug blew.

I took 2nd in buggy and truggy at round 1 of the RC Pro East Series.

Great job Puddin!!! I am basically using Andrews latest set up but I have been playing with shock oils and shock positions in the rear. The TR is feeling pretty good. Hopefully I will be done with blowing up engines for they year.

Guys, I had some time to kill today so I decided to go weight my BCE C2X Matrix TR. Man was I shocked, this thing was 8lbs. 11oz. I'm thinking about adding some weight to the rear to see if it would help keep the rear end plated better Truck still dirty just raced last night

Justin will be using the new BCE Cen C2X Pro (Nats) chassis for the Truck Nationals in 2008. The build went good and everything went right together. We are using the Hot Bodies diff gears and will start with a 46 Spur and most likely end up going to a 48. We are heading to our home track tomorrow evening to do some testing and Iíll let everyone know what Justin thinks of the new Cen TR. One thing for certain is itís a lot lighter. According to Bill at BCE track performance will be better in every area. The chassis you see in the pictures is the final run of a year long project between BCE and Cen Racing. This chassis will be available in the next couple weeks. You will be able to order it from www.rcracingparts.com or www.machinesrchobbies.com ,the only difference is it will have a black hard coating instead of the bare aluminum that you see in the pictures. Justin is looking forward to having BCE Racing Products as a sponsor and would like to thank Bill at BCE for his support. Also thanks to Andrew and Ken at Cen Racing and Gene at Machineís RC Racing for all the support and making the beginning of 2008 a really fun year with may more races to come.

What else are you running on the TR as far as the diffs, outdrives and driveshafts, etc.?
Thanks for the info!

Justin and I went to our local track and did some testing today with the new BCE chassis. First off the truck is just over a pound lighter. Even with the 46/13 gearing the truck accelerated much better. It also jumped and rotated around the corners better. After changing the shock oil, rear toe/squat plate, and moving the rear hubs to the center Justin said the truck is much better. On a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best) Justin said that itís an 8. Great work Andrew and Bill. This chassis setup is a must. Justin has a big smile on his face. Also it looked like he wasnít having to run the truck as hard and was going much faster.

t4usee, the F/R diffs are stock Cen with the pins. We just went to a Jammin center diff with the Cen 46 tooth spur. We have all Gene's Blue upgrade parts, Reckward Tuning 13T clutch bell, Jammin silver clutch shoes with 1.0 springs (testing only, usually run the Cen blue shoes with 1.1). Kyosho rear hub carriers, Jammin servo saver plastic parts, OFNA drive cup for the center rear (the center rear dog-bone is a prototype Cen) and a Hot Bodies CVD drive in the center front. Everything else is all stock parts from the Cen Matrix buggy and truggy kits. I think thatís it. For the center drives you can also use the Kyosho drives. We have them but havenít put then in yet. Don't have to shim them like the Hot Body center shafts.
