Default New Cen 1/10 Scale Solid Axle Monster Truck Coming Soon

CEN Racing HL150 Annihilator Monster Truck Big Squid RC ? RC Car and Truck News, Reviews, Videos, and More!

This looks interesting. Don't know how well-built Cen trucks are, but this truck looks great. With a wheelbase of 10.82" , that would make this truck the size of a Traxxas Stampede 4 x 4. If this truck isn't too much money, I'll be the guinea pig and buy one and give it a good beating.

My first impression is somewhat "Plastic-fantastic", but fingers crossed!

I couldn't tell if the chassis was plastic or metal.

Chassis screams plastic to me, but I could be wrong. Nothing wrong with plastic chassis though if designed correctly. Carriers, spindles (sometimes whole axle) and linkages however, tend to suffer from serious bashing if not made of (quality) metal. Thats my experiance anyway, but I'm coming from 1/8 scale and this is 1/10 I believe (?).

Cen monster trucks have been twin vertical plates before. That may be what this new one has too.

The second truck looks like a mini size and I'm really curious about it. Hopefully we get more info soon.

Looks like they are taking pre-orders and shipping sometime this month. Here is a video I found on them.

It will great for kids but honestly there a lot of people wanting a high end MT with a longer WB and big bullet proof axles. For many the SMT10 had wesk points so somebody should have came out with something better. MTs are getting popular and someone needs to fill that void. Axial is already posting on Facebook they will like be releasing and new variant of the SMT10 but a ways down the line.

Here is my first mod Freestyle Rc Servo mount.Yes I'm using the stock plastic servo horn..In these times taking a trip to my LHS for a metal one isn't easy. I noticed immediately with this mount servo centers. The stock set had lots of play and the servo wouldn't center. Yes there upgrades available for this truck.

Well I ran about 5 batteries through it. Im running it on 2s lipo. Not one problem to report.Truck took everything I threw at it. I also switched it to high gear in the transmission. Which gave it more speed. I got some more upgrades coming I'll be sure to update with pictures. Overall I'm very happy with the truck .

Removed front springs all the way around. Bench testing truck definitely feels less bouncy. Gonna go run some packs through it I'll report back shortly.

Well this definitely made a difference. Truck is more stable not as bouncy. Jumps more predictable and flat.
