If any of you guys are looking to pickup a bunch of NIB Parts for your CEN Matrix TR or Matrix give me a PM. Decided to see about getting my daughter and wife into rc electric it so will use the Matrix to fund it.

Default 2007 Dirt Nitro Challenge

Impressive results for CEN Racing in buggy and truggy - B-main for both classes. I out qualified 3 current & former IFMAR World Champions but did not have the best luck when trying to bump up to the A-main event.
There were 400 entries and all of the best in the USA were there plus many drivers from over seas.

Buggy qualifying

Truggy qualifying

Default What are the different Rear Suspension Plates for?

Bone Head Question here. I have no idea what these things are for. I acquired 3 of them in a parts lot (3T1S, 2T2S, T2S3).
I'm basically just a club racer and sometimes run on the street. Can someone explain to me what the T and S are and how
it affects the handling of the car. Also when you should use what?

I know it's a lot to answer but I want to know if I need to hang on to these or sell them.

T is toe, and S is anti squat, so 3TS1 has 3 degree of rear toe in, and 1 degree of anti squat,

of those three, the 3TS1 will work good for you most places,

Okay. Is anyone interested in the other 2?

2T2S is used
2T3S is NIP (MXS23)

They are both CNC Factory Team Red. Have pics if you want.

Also have MXS04 CNC Rear Shock Tower.

PM or email txczshooter@sbcglobal.net if interested.

Will also be posting in "For Sale" Forum.

Only have 2 tracks around, and they are about the same terrain.
My street tires will get the rest of the action.

Here's the thread where they are for sale.

What's a good oil/grease setup on the difs for some street play and club racing? I guess just a good overall setup.

Thanks

Just use thick grease unless you get the Cross Pin conversion Kits. Then you can use silicone oil such as 5,000/5,000/2,000.

Default CEN Racing Wins Again!

At the RC Pro East Series Round 1 last weekend, I lead the 1st 20 minutes of the Pro Buggy A-main until my engine mounts screws came loose and I stripped my clutch bell.

I also lead most of the race and won 1/8 Pro Arena Truck with the CEN Matrix TR Arena.

Kyle Sokol made both A-mains with the CEN Matrix Pro & TR Arena also.
