I am updating the "GS" Parts Clearance section on the site. Check out the deals, parts are selling fast as they are CHEAP. If you don't see something you need, let me know, I still have some more to do.

CEN GS Parts

I have had several people ask me continue to carry CEN parts. I have been known for a few years now to be one of the bigger CEN dealers in Canada and the US. I have been concentrating on my main brands now (SH and Z-Car) and I can't afford to invest thousands of dollars in CEN parts. Also, I do not wish to be just taking orders and then ordering from CEN in Taiwan. If CEN can't supply the parts in a timely manner, I am stuck in the middle and am seen as the "Bad Guy".
I started my company on CEN racing products and do appreciate the support I received from CEN when they had a US Distributor "Genka Trading Corp." The sales rep that I dealt with (Rodney), was one of the best I have ever dealt with. I still believe the products are some of the best out there and I still have my Matrix Arena TR which I run on the local track sometimes, but once it breaks, I am also SOL.

Cen ships directly from Asia warehouse. From what I understand the main problems is that the dealers don't have anyone to order parts from. If there's any shops out there that would like to place orders please contact me directly. I am friends with the owner and he is assured me that cen racing is going to get back on track for the USA. Any hobby shops feel free to PM me and I will coordinate with hq

I have to disagree about the problem. It is not that dealers don't have somewhere to order from. I have emailed Ken in Taiwan and I know I can order from there. The problem I see is that there are so few CEN vehicles out there, that it is not worth ordering a lot of parts. Also, it takes a long time to get parts shipped from Taiwan and most customers don't want to wait for parts.
I do orders kits and parts for my other brand from Taiwan, but I order thousands of dollars worth of parts and kits in each order and I have every part here in stock, because the demand is there for them.
Until there is a distributor again in the US, who stocks most of the CEN parts and kits, CEN will not resurface in North America. I still have a large stick of "GS" parts and some "MX" parts left and have been selling them off, but the demand seems to have dropped off.
I love the CEN products and would love to see them resurface again, but the truth is People don't trust CEN any more and there are so many other good products out there that the competition is really tough.

Has anyone had any luck with the shopatron ordering as of yet? I need a LT ft hub-c for my matrix FRE and I am weary of ordering one. Got an email from Ken saying that he could have me one in 5-7 days but it sounds like that might not be accurate from some of the experiences I'm reading.

What part number do you need? Is it the aluminum hubs? They are sold in a left and right set.

The part number is MX010, I put in the order for the set. Figured I'd roll the dice for $20 and.see how they land. Checked your site Terra Nova before I tried CEN, didn't see any hub-c's. Hopefully I get my parts soon, I am really excited to get this car going. Just bought a new 21 Mach 2 for it today, the 21v2 was leaking a lot of air. While I'm here does anyone know of a 3 shoe clutch that will fit on this that's not a CEN clutch? I'm running 1.1 springs and CENs red shoes but its like they just wont grab the bell gear, even with the rpms way up there.

Good looking out! I will probably scoop those up in the event I don't get them from CEN. If all goes good it will give me confidence in bashing on this buggy.
