as a rule, you should only fill up to the crossbars.

It flies real nice. the servos are great. i think the only reason i wouldnt get it would be because i cant get parts here. but theres some shops in cali that have parts for it.

yea it can keep up with the losi

I ran the truggy FRE pro version last year and did well with it I had to put a ton of $ into lightening it though. And parts are expensive for it I think but its tough and can keep up with the rest of them, they have a new car out though now so that 1 is out dated if that matters to you. And to your question fill them to 70%

it figures that they came out with a newer version of the cen matrix thats ligher and has hop up parts on it. it really does make a diffrence on how heavy a buggy is i ran a ofna hyper 7 and that thing is a tank i say about almost 8 pounds and when u hit a jump it does do the nose up a lot so u do have to make corrections more then a lighter buggy but i did somewhat keep up with a losi eight in the corners
