No, the same Matrix we have always raced.

He just e-mailed me and said he just saw the 1st proto of the Rematrix. He said it looks really good, but they don't have any extras to bring back for me and him.

Looks like the progress is farther along then I thought. Maybe we will have one by the Worlds.

Also, he said that everything new will be able to fit on the original Matrix too.

I don't know if I am supposed to mention it, but he also said that CEN hired 2 new engineers to work on the Rematrix. They both have many years of experience in 1/8 Buggy designs, so CEN Racing is serious about getting this new buggy out and up to World class standards very soon.

I've had my front CVD jam on the buggy a couple times too, it happened to me when I would use the upper set of holes on the tower along with the outside holes on the arm usually, I had it with both the stock shocks and the KMW ones, using the brake outdrives in front helped because the "bowl" inside them isn't as deep, but they wear out faster, also a little bit of fuel tube on the shaft outside the body helped, but limited the uptravel,

the best way to prevent it though is to downside all the jumps and not nose into the face of jumps or land hard on the flat after the jump, which is probally why Gene hasn't had a problem, its always happend to me when I've screwed up a double, and smoked the top of the 2nd jump, or when I over shot the landing and landed hard on the flat with the front end only, also once it does it once, the outdrives should be replaced because the lip rounds off and then it will do it again alot easier,
