Default RE: OFNA Titan Twin Vs. CEN Genesis

I am in complete agrement with Dan. There is no purpose to have twin engines in your truck unless you want to have serious braging rights. Even a 46. engine is way to much power. You will never need that amout of power, even .12 2-stroke engines pack enough power than any of us know what to do with. If you ask me, dual engines equals twice the hastel because if one engine is not in tune, it will bring the other one down to its leve. The Titan will maby top out at most 50 mph but with the Genesis 3 speed tranny and singal 46. engine it will also max about 55-60 mph. The speed is quite the same but the power to weight ratio is much different. Suposedly the Gen has exelent power to weight ratio which makes even the MT-2 look bad. The Titan on the other hand may have alot of torq but you have to consider that it has dual engines and a bigger chassy with bigger componets which make the power to rate ratio suck. Tuning the Titan will also be a pain in the keayster because you have two of everything to tune. You need to make sure that each setting on one side is the same on the other. The genesis has 4 wheel steering as well which add increable handleing. Though most people would think it would filp with that amount of traction but I won't because of the weight. There is a major down side to haveing 4 wheel steering though and that is batteries. You will need atleast 8-12 batteries for the truck it's slef and 8-12 batteries for the remote. Cleaning the Titan will also be a major down side because there is no free space on the chassi so if dirt or fuel gets in between the many but small spaces the only way to clean it up would be to pull some componants out. The gen has plenty of room for extra components and that add to easy cleaning it also has many holes in the chassi. When I say holes, you probably think that it weakens the chassi, but it doesn't i't actully strenthens the chassi because of where the holes are located not only do the serve that pupose but if you spill fuel, it will drain through unlike the Titans chassi it will just stay at the bottom. The Gens engine is also not a plane engine ploped onto a Monster truck, i't is a speacily desinged engine made for on/off road use.

It consists of

7.7cc displacement
True ABC Construction
Rear Exhaust
Slide Carb.
13 fins Giant Cooling head combined with special designed external engine block ensured efficient cooling
Massive wheelie pulling bottom end Torque combine with massive top end power
Convient Pull Start system (Shaft start available optional)
High Efficient Foam element air filter

Fact from Mecky33 - The titan has a single deck that has no bracing to prevent flex. This will cause undue stress on motor mounts and drive train. The Genesis uses a frame similar to the savage that is very tough and not very prone to flex. this can be bad in a hard landing as you could damage the frame, but this is rather unlikely under most circumstances.

In conclusion, It is hard to tell what is better because the Genesis is not out yet but from what I know and the fact I have gatherd I truly belive the once the Genesis is out on the market it will be an all around better truck. The CEN company may not have the notarity as OFNA but they make some of the most reliable and profound rc products in the world.
