I can beat that, This is actually only half of what I have. Problem is, I have no use for them.

its just un-expected after so many other places have just plain not shipped parts, to finally get something that is actually on its way is pretty shocking I do have a question though and I think it has been asked on this forum but I am too lazy to go back and read the whole thing again for the hundreth time. has anyone had, or have seen a motor with one of the rb innovations superchargers on it? any opinions?

You can trust me. When you order something and I have it, you will get it. If I don't have it, you will get a refund in 24 hours or less.
I have never tried the superchargers. I just can't see it being a good thing for an engine, pushing excess air in. If you are running a Corsa Engine, I would feel lucky it is running, don't take chances. They have enough problems as it is. I have seen many of them with holes/defects in the casting and everyone I have seen needs a lot of silicone to seal up the leaks. CEN had a good thing going with the SH Engines, I am not sure why they went to Corsa.
I love the trucks, buggies and truggies, I just always tried to take out the Corsa engine and put in SH right away. I sometimes could even get the RTR models with no engine.
Thanks Again for your business timmmy, let me know if you need anything else.

As far as superchargers. This topic has been covered many times on the Traxxas forums and on RCUniverse. They seem attractive to noob bashers. Bottom line, they don't work and can cause engine damage. Run from them!

Hey, does anyone want another GST? I took one on a trade from a new customer who bought a new truggy. I really don't want it, I am done with monster trucks.

Yeah, he didn't waste much time in getting here to pick it up. I just didn't have the time to mess with it, and even I am running out of parts. I did have plans to do my SH .28 Engine conversion, but in a way, I am glad he took it away.

If anyone is interested in CEN parts, let me know. I am taking all of my parts off the wall and bagging them in parts lots. Everything must go!! I am tired of looking at the big section of my parts wall that could be used for something else. I also have a big box of used GST parts that will go. I will list them on ebay, but if you want them cheaper, contact me before they go on ebay. Ebay has to take their 10-15% so they will be more there. Most of these parts will go for 1/4 of the price or less. I am working on a spreadsheet of what I have.
  • "GS" Parts
  • "FF" Parts
  • "MX" Parts
  • "MG" & "ME" Parts
  • "BJ" (Boat) Parts

Nothing. I do have some of the internal tranny gears, but they never break anyway.

I have the pricing and inventory updated on my site for the MX parts. These are the parts for the Matrix Arena and the C1. I will work on the other parts soon.

Come on guys cut skavenger some slack, CEN should have had better customer service, a phone message would have been fine. It is un-nerving being stuck with an RC model with no parts available.
