There is no reason why they should if they are built and oiled properly.

It's rare to see anyone mention CEN Vehicles anymore. I still have my Matrix Arena TR FRE and it is a good truggy. There are quite a few Arenas and Matrix C1's in my area. I was a CEN Dealer and sold a lot of them. I still stock parts to keep my local guys going. It would be interesting to see the new truggy and buggy, but I don't think I can wait any longer. I have moved on to another brand. I was also a big fan of the GST Monster Truck. CEN has made some big changes which they feel are for the better, but I'm not sure.
They had an awesome sales rep there that took pride in his work and he is no longer there. Also, I think Andrew Smolnik is no longer there.
I do still carry lots of CEN Parts for the Matrix C1 / Arena, and the GST.

Yeah, I heard Mark did well in Red Deer last season. CEN makes great cars. The company and customer service just needs some work.

Does anyone have the radio tray in the red aluminum?

I know a lot of parts are compatible with the Kyosho 777. Can anyone confirm if the radio tray, side guards, and shock towers are compatible?

I am looking for the engine mounts for the Matrix FRE buggy. The is the flat plate that sits between the chassis and engine mounts.

I've looked all over the CEN website, Ebay and Google and can't find it. Does anyone know if the plate for a Kyosho buggy will work? Is there a one piece engine mount option available?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: I just found them. Guess I didn't search hard enough. They're the same as the Matrix C1.

If these are not the correct ones please comment. Thanks.

Well I'm not so thrilled about paying $16 for the part plus another $6 shipping and another $2 for sales tax. That comes out to about $24 just for two stamped aluminum plates.

Does anyone know if these plates for the Kyosho will work?

Default Possible find

I probably have a couple of the plates lying around - I have alot of CEN stuff.

What exactly do you need? Just the two plates, or the plates and the engine mounts themselves? LMK...

I think when I ran CEN I used some MP777 King Headz engine mounts....
