slaytanic, i can tell you that kyosho strr 138mm rear don't work (unlike the normal arena where it works fine). I'm using the cen truggy dog bone on the rear and the Cen buggy rear universal on the front (you can also use the kyosho 777 buggy rear too on the front). Unless someone can tell me otherwise, i'm kinda stuck with this setup on the rear until that cen lightweight prototype universal that gene and andy are using gets released to the public.

Those Aluminum driveshafts are already available on Cen direct. I assume they would be for the standard chassis though.

Does anyone know if the J-concepts wing fits on the stock mount? I bought one to match the body I sent out, but the flat spot where you make the holes seems maybe too narrow. I cant tell though because my wing mount is in pieces LOL. I guess I will find out in a few days. But I would like to see a pic if someone was able to mount it. Also what does running no front swaybar do for you and what condition is it for?

The crt hinge pin kit gives you the outer arm pins also? Those are the only ones I need now, I really dont want to use the spacers or tap holes in my arms so I am still kinda looking for a solution.

After I starred at it for hours Here is what I did.



I used the buggy radio mnts MX058 and a few spacers on both ends. Let me tell this wing mnt seems to be solid. This will also allow you to mnt pretty much any aftermarket wing flat.

So the buggy radio posts are shorter? And then squeezed the mount at the top into the buggy posts?

By moving the outer mounts to the inside and using the buggy mounts with a couple of spacers it is a perfect fit. I hope that made sense.

Apparently they will fit the C2X PRO BCE chassis but they are not available to the public until mid may. Cen are just doing their "College girl tease" bit on the website.

I am running kyosho 43 ring and 10 pinion with a 48 tooth spur and 13 tooth bell. I keep tearing up clutch shoes like crazy, aluminum and carbon. Need input. Is my clutch bell gearing to low? My bell and spur are square and my drivetrain is free. I'm kinda baffled. Thanks.

Sounds to me like your clutch is slipping, which generates a lot of heat. have you trird a stiffer spring?

not yet, but wouldn't that make the clutch slip more? stiffer spring=more rpm before the clutch engages and more force pulling back against the shoes, correct?

I'm thinking about going to 17mm hexed wheels and was wondering if the CEN Matrix buggy hexes and pins will be an easy bolt on upgrade on the TR to allow me to run them?
