Its for my matrix buggy.

Anyone need a NIB T2S2 rear block, RTR rear shock tower, or some of the RTR style steering knuckles? Selling cheap!

3 deg. of toe seems good to me, but what about the squat? I always prefered lots of squat on my old 7.5 which is the only 8th scale reference I have. With the K car, more squat always seemed to settle the buggy on rough tracks as well as giving it a flatter arc when jumping. How does the matrix react to more (or less) squat? It's been several years since I raced 8th buggy and I'm clueless about current 8th buggy tech, so any and all help is greatly appreciated.

no it doens't come with a body, any body for the MSR mugen fits, aka the crowd pleazer, the MSR body, and I've heard of the actual MBX5T bodies fitting good too, like the j-concepts one, if you read the thread this question has been asked a couple times before,

The Pro-line MSR Crowd Pleazer fits perfect but Pro-line just discontinued it. Send them an e-mail and ask them to make a body for the CEN Matrix TR Arena 1/8 Truck. If they get enough demand, they will do it.

And the Pro-line Crowd Pleazer SP2 fits the Matrix buggy perfect.

does anyone have a pic of a 777 or mbx5 shell cut for a matrix they can post? I just butchered a 777 CP shell and I'd rather not do it again. A detail shot of the mounting hole locations and front cutouts would be most helpful.

how bad are you wanting to use those shells? reason I ask is that the RGX body looks pretty nice.

Posted some matrix stuff on ebay. good chance to get it cheap.
