Oh and btw he races a revo in mt class and has no trouble finishing a race (that in itself is a huge indicator) so he is not a newbie.
mabey he wasnt a good driver in truggy or didnt know how to prepare for his races

being able to finish a race with a revo on a regular basis is obviously saying something about his prep/driving skills. I dont care what you say, its tough to make a revo finish a race on a regular basis.

i know it may be alittle late to say this but breaking stuff is half the fun. thinking about giving up after break two parts on your car before a full tank of fuel is rediculous in my opinion. granted electric can be just as fast or faster than nitro but electri you might not break as much. having a nitro car and breaking stuff is fun.... they wouldnt call it bashing for nothing. my point is.... just because you break something doesnt mean you have to quite at it because you might not think you are that good at it.... thats why its called practice for a reason. when you practice and break stuff it is only benefiting you in the long run, granted it hurts in the wallet....lol.... but its worth it.

thats my opinion.

Good luck

IMO the CEN trucks are pretty tough, but they are that extra 5-6 lbs heavier than the other MT's so the stress is much higher when you do make mistakes. I think in order to make a truck that heavy as tough as a savage or LST you will need some aftermarket support and a bit of cash.

They really do look cheap !!!!!

I wasnt putting anything down..... or atleast wasnt my intention.. more that they are all good trucks!.. or atleast close to each other..
Wait what does the 8t race roller need again? You say all this and you own a Revo LMAO!!!!

I have had my Cen Genesis LE since it was released and it is one BAD ASS MT. I did have issues tuning the engine but I was a newbie and I learned. I haven't had many issues with my Genesis besides common wear and tear and I had had some pretty bad spills with this truck. I did upgrade almost everything to aluminum though...manly for the BLING factor.

Thanks. I haven't driven her much because I am just starting to get into racing. I have been breaking in new engines for my Matrix and TR Arena and I am trying to get the cars set-up right, so not much time for the Genesis lately.
