Default RTR engine needle settings

Hello, I have gotten my Matrix RTR's needle settings all out of whack and I need to know what I should set them to for a baseline to start retuning the engine. I'm using an MC9 glowplug and Trinity Monster Horsepower 20% fuel. Thanks!

Gene,

What shocks do you usually run? I have been looking at the reservoir shocks but wasn't sure if they are worth it. Also do you have any updated setup sheets for the buggy? All the ones on the website are very old and i am having trouble getting a good set up on my matrix pro.

Thanks!

p.s. Great job at worlds warm up!! was awesome to see CEN up in the mix!!!

does the buggy use the same shocks as the truggy? also, what springs fit these shocks? carolinasrc.com has the shocks listed under the buggy.

CEN has springs for the buggy and I think the RVM or something Progressive rate springs work good on these.

The buggy and truggy use the same shocks, I have them in stock. Any Mugen/Xray spring will fit.

I have naked photos, but not of my car.

I like Matrix Reloaded, but that would be a name infringement. So Rematrix it is.

Video from the Worlds

The CEN Matrix was a little fast for the camera, but if you look closely, you will see me put a lap on the current World Champion.

They are very good right out of the box. The only thing i would get is the CNC knuckles. The stock ones can break in a big crash. Other than that its a GREAT buggy!

The Matrix Pro FRE comes with the short Chassis. The RTR comes with a long chassis. I used the RTR long chassis at the Worlds. I will post my set up soon.
