Default Cen Genesis any good?

Is the nitro rc truck called Cen Genesis any good? I heard on reviews it was hard to tune. I could probably take it to a pro to get it tuned but what are your opinions?

I had one for about 2 yrs and it was OK for bashing but parts were hard for me to find locally. The stock radio and servos sucked but that is same with 95% of RTR's!

I have one. Its a good truck to bash with but forget about it if you want to race. Have you considered a truggy instead of a monster truck? If you want a Cen then in my opinion, the TR Arena truggy is tough enough to bash, and its able to compete at the track. Plus you can upgrade the RTR servos with the money you would save getting the TR Arena instead of the Genesis.

Well sorry it's just that this guy wanted to trade my one for this gas scooter I have. I'm not all really into nitro because I'm just starting and I don't know how to tune. I thought maybe I could learn to use it or just sell it. Now I got a new offer, so I think I'm going with the new offer I just got. I just wanted to ask if it was any good because I thought it was crap just like my brothers nitro rc truck.
