Here's a link to my new body for the genesis. I hope I can post these links in here.
I see it's only pics for the MT2, so if i can't let me know and I will take them away.

fred - ive heard conflicting stories from different ppl on this one, some say not a prob, some say no way... so does anyone have pics of a tmaxx shell on a funfactor?

tridi - did u use 17mm hexes and an adapter to fit the buggy wheels? they look to have a pretty rare offset if they are mounted the right way round...

the t-maxx body will fit on the cen MT2... I tried my old maxx body on the mt2 and it fit perfectly... the wheel wells seemed to line up better... the only negative was the maxx body was a little longer... If you go with a maxx only body, not a maxx/savage body, you should be good...
here is a picture of my usa-1 with a maxx body next to my cen mt2... they are very close in size

use a little heat to soften the loctite and remove like a regular screw.... check the clutch spring and also the flywheel... they sometimes come loose... when you replace the clutch bell screw, use a socket head instead of phillips.... it wont strip...

thanks cenracer... ive managed to get the screw off and discoverd that the clutchbell and pinion gears spin seperatly.. so, with a little help, we have welded the pinion gears and clutchbell tight together.

The tires and rims is Ofna (got from Hyper 7 kit). I use the CEN wheel stopper and put some plastic resin to the rims. It seems that plastic resin is not strong enough to handle it. I plan to make a 17 mm steel adapter. With the 44/47 spur gear and 15/18 clutch bell, top speed is faster compared to when I use Dirt Hawg II or Geolandar (with 2.2" rims). Handling, litlle bit "flying" in straight line, I am looking for rims with positive offset to get wider track. Cornering tend to have over steer, I think I need to make toe and camber adjustment in both front and rear (+1 or +2).

I've learned a lot form this forum over the past year or so. Thanks for everything. I thought I'd post some pics of my MT2 and the bodies I found that worked out well. The Digger body is a Parma 1/10th and the Silverado is a Proline Stampede. They both went on real smooth. I hope the pics work show up. This is my first attempt.

That is a great looking truck, what modifications have been done? What shocks are you using on it?

Hi Scouser, Thanks for the compliment. The shocks are Hot Bodies threaded aluminum for a t-maxx ($18 a pair through RCBoyz.com). I had to adjust the travel on the front cylinders with fuel tubing but the rears went on just fine. I used a fairly soft Hot Bodies spring with 40 wt silicone shock fluid all the way around. I used the FFS006 long aluminum pivot balls to mount the shocks to the stock towers. I just had to dremel the ball end down to fit the Hot Bodies shock caps. Kinda tedious but worth the effort. The pipe is the CEN Aluminum hop-up from stock. Really didn't notice a performance difference but it looks cool. The New Era roll-bar was worth every penny. It stiffened the chassis and gives a great place to grab the truck and sling it across the yard when the spur gear strips out. Just Kidding. It is a must have. I put a hop-up cooling head on it but never could get the motor right with it installed so I switched back. A couple of other add ons were Hitec 325HB throttle servo, Hitec 5625MG Digital steering servo, chrome CEN rims, metal brake disk w/plug and an Airtronics MX-3 setup. Getting the digger body to fit in the rear took some rigging. I used plastic gutter spike covers to join two stock body posts together and make a long one. It actually works quite well and was easy to do. This truck just sold on ebay. Got kinda expensive keeping it, my T-maxx and my Genesis going. It had to go. I think the Genesis is next! My wallet is telling me electric is the way to go. Thanks again to everybody who shares information in this forum. It has been a great help to me and I'm sure many others!

Everything is looking good mate, love the mud! What air filter are you using? It looks a bit bigger than normal 1:10 ones.

cheers, aye its still in need of a clean, i did the wheels and tyres cos they were lathered, but with these wheels, the crap seems to fly above the shell etc, so the cleanup aint too bad.

the filter is a cheapish gpm jobby - the os 18 cvr comes with a massive filter anyway, well, a 1/8 sized filter. its a bit of a pain to find room for it, but if its designed for that sized filter then i aint gonna mess with it.

got sick of killing spurs and/or pinions... put it back to a rally, geared it 16/20, 42/38... it goes well!! too well really... its too easy to spin the wheels right thru 1st gear and hitting 2nd doesnt help to control it, but once it gains traction - its off!! chassis has some battle scars now...

for anyone with the jt chassis - make sure u run with the front bumper in place - the rebate in the chassis will let sand into the diff and destroy it if u forget to put the bumper on... DOH!!

if u have the os18, then give the rally setup a bash - its hilarious!

Just a couple of pics of my ST2, with a HPI Charger body... Hope you like 'em? Oh yeah, I read some where on here that the TMaxx/Maxx bodies fit the MT2, would it be the same for the ST2?

Thanks
