CEN Matrix TR
 
Well it looks like the Matrix TR will be hitting the shelves soon and maybe under some trees this morning!! :)
Who will be racing this bad boy? I know we will when we get it. We are going up to Columbus for their big race and I hope Smolnik will be there with his. He has been doing extremely well with it and had alot of input to design.

It's gonna be a winner!!!

I am excited to see how this vehicle stacks up to the other truggies out there, especially the Losi 8ight.

I have the CEN Matrix, and if that is any sign of things, I do know the vehicle will be pretty beefy at least :nod: . Looking at Losi's 8ight RTR shock towers, I wonder how well those will hold up, look very thin.

I am too, and yea, it will have to be beefy if its a Matrix brother.
Which Matrix do you have?

Hey Gene, Thanks for stopping by. What diffs come with the Pro TR. What hop ups do you reccomend.

Machine's R/C H 12-28-2006 08:27 AM

It comes with the CEN LSD style diffs with alum cases, so they are super smooth. Used 80wt gear oil in the front, 5,000 cps in the center, and grease in the rear. Get the alum servo saver arm, CNC knuckles, and the 3T2S rear block and you are good to go.

Cain 12-28-2006 11:05 AM

Is that pics of the RTR version out of the box? If so that is a great body. Are those diffs the same as what the CEN Matrix uses?

I currently have a RTR Matrix, just stripped of all the RTR stuff and I am building it up as a racer. Have upgraded with the Alloy Knuckles. Will probably get Alloy shock towers next.

Chris Jarosz 12-28-2006 01:51 PM

Cain- Yes they are the same diffs that come in the matrix except the Matirx FRE includes plastic and aluminum diff cases. CEN is working on a kyosho style diff i believe. on my car all ive upgraded were the knuckles, towers and a jconcepts wing(which didnt mount up very easily).

Machine's R/C H 12-28-2006 03:31 PM

That is the RTR. The FRE comes with red cnc shock towers, cnc susp braces, and cnc diff plate. Yes, the RTR body is the best looking RTR paint job I have ever seen. The decals are even painted on.

This is the Factory Race Edition

Hey Thanks for the information Gene. Do you mean 80 weight gear oil you would put in the rear end of a 9" ford rearend housing? and what type of grease are you talking about? I would really like to see this thread grow so we all can gain some knowledge about an awsome truck that is hitting the racing scene. Are you going to Columbus this year Gene?

Machine's R/C H 12-28-2006 04:57 PM

No, I am going to the losi Winterchamps.

The grease comes with the kit, and yes - real fullsize gear oil. Or you could spend 20 times as much and use Kyosho LDS oil. :)

t4usee 12-28-2006 06:32 PM

Goodluck at the champs.

Stefan Millay 12-28-2006 10:16 PM

Good luck Gene, I hope you do well with the CEN cars.
