Hey guys, what are the must have hop ups for the Cen Matrix FRE buggy? Also, do the kits now come with the cross pin conversion or is it still something you have to buy extra, thanks!!

All you need are the CNC steering knuckles and the CNC upper bellcrank.

The new kits come with the cross pins and new plastic cases. I will tell you from testing that Genes harden pins will last a lifetime... I got several gallons on them in my Matrix TR an the look better than new

Eric if ya going to come over to the CEN side let me know something... Call me

Also the 3t2s toe block. Yes the new kits come with cross pins but when they were out get my hardened pins and also my front upper turnbuckles - they will never pull out and are lighter.

the upper bell crank isn't as neccesary on the buggy IMO, I ran an entire season on the same plastic one in buggy, but its good for extra insruance thoguh,

also I would say its a really good idea to get either the CNC towers, or the RTR towers, unless you brace them the carbon towers tend to snap pretty easy,

so for me the order of must have is towers / knuckles (they are equally important), rear toe block, upper bellcrank, then anything after that is just if you want it, its not totally required,

He was, but they only allowed 2 international drivers to compete, so it was just me and Kris Moore.

I have a nice, unused painted ProLine CP2 shell for sale. It's an MBX5 shell, but it's got CEN logos painted on both sides

Check it out if you are in need of a new body.

Default CEN

Does any one have some advice for me on the os max rg 21. I can't seem to get it to fit in my matrix. I know about the spacers, but the last brake pads to the rear are going to be a problem. What should I use for spacers? Should I remove a disc and brake pad from the rear to accomodate? If anyone who knows what I mean can give me some good helpful advice, theres thanks in it for ya!!
