tron 101-- i understand completly whats going on and it make me mad as well but most those guys are just guessing next time they say something ask them......have you driven this car,owned this car i can guarantee you 99% of them will say no there just going by what they heard CEN has a few buggies that qualified for the worlds this year along with lots of other wins and great placing at the truck nats last year CEN was the only monster truck that did not break the revo and lsts did Andy bump from the C-main to the B-main to yup you guessed it the A-main and finshed a very respectable 2nd place with out any problems through all those mains
i hear people at tracks i go to sometimes saying the same thing i just let it go and let the result speak for it self
just do good and show them its a great buggy whitch it is as well as the truggy dont let them get to you its very durable and handles extremly well
but most all the time there just throwing words outta their mouth that they heard from someone else and have never expeirenced CEN

as far as upgrades go these are the only two you should do right off the bat....

i would try 40wt shock oil in front with #2 pistons and 30 in the rear with #2 pistons

diffs they should be crosspins so starting from the front 7/10/4 or 5
if you have any other questions just ask

CEN didnt do threaded shocks cause through long mains the nut will loosen up and set the car off
you can rebulid your shocks or use the preloads the threaded shocks are the same and using pre loads except they are not consistant

Hi there Tron 101, no you don't need any extra parts, unlike Kyosho it is a direct fit. You can switch between S and L chassis without changing any other parts. However, you may need to readjust your body slightly and body post holes naturally.

Default Front UPPER SUSPENSION ARM

I thought i remember seeing these in the red aluminum set for release. Did i bump my head last spring, or what? It was a replacement for part MX012 . If not, is there another upgrade for this area? Thanks

will the new cen cross pins fit into the alumint diff housing like Gene's does? One of his wasn't machined so well, and has failed. Do i need to get a diffrent housing for this, or can i just use the aluminum that works with his custom cross pins

is it to long
if so you can shave it with a grinder

you best bet would be to get the new cen housings and pins all the way through
