Default Rims

Truck is not nearly as twitchy with the offset rims.. just a thought.. and if you havent been cruising.. lots of good info here..!!!?

CEN Matrix TR

Hope this helps.. You should get the new kit with the regular diffs.. if you do not just contact CEN.. they will probly help you out..

THe only really needed part to upgrade on the truck is the Upper cnc servo saver bellcrank.....

Like I said about the Rims .. I was super afraid the truck would be too wide with offsets.. and it looks big when you put em on.. but on the track.. woo. what a difference.. I think I nocked atleast a second off my lap times..

I am almost done. I have to tare it down again because i put either the front and back diffs in back words or the center diff in backwards. (I spun the center diff the way the engine will turn it and went backwards!) Does it matter on were you put your spur gear or the gears on the diffs?








ALL of the camber has been fixed.. Just showing how bad it would have drove!

there is an arrow moulded into the diff case to show which side the ring gear goes on, pretty sure the book tells you that if you read it closer,

I also want to build a FTE but the dogbone/ axle popping problem avoided me from doing so. Is there a chance that CEN would address this problem and upgrade the axle that comes with the kit?

This explains how to keep the CVD from poping out. The problem has been fixed also with new arms. Team CEN ran them at the Nationals and they worked perfect.
