Good dealIve been trying to decide weather to buy one or not and you guys just made up my mind for me.I will be ordering one in the near futureI sum it up as a tough,fun,affordable little truck(typical cen product)Only drawbacks I see is no or very little upgrades available,and have to be an RC genious to use anyother motor than the stock one,but thats okay because I see that cen gives lifetime engine replacement[X(]Does anyone know the details of this engine replacement?Please explain because it sounds to good to be true.Has to be a catch.Im gonna get one anyway,but sure would like to be filled in on this lifetime engine thing.That didnt even come with my nemesis and it was way more expensive,but thats okay because it runs so good,I dont even need a engine warranty[:'(] Im sure the MG-16 is not perfect but I dont think you can even find anything that compares for$200.00 new and lifetime engine replacement,but you know how it goes,you just cant satisfy some people no matter what[:-]

I want One of these Really Bad!! I just dont have the funds right now. I Already have one of the 'Famous' Stampedes. Its a great truck. I just am getting bored with Having to recharge my battery every time when its run down to drive it again. I was researching and couldn't decide if i wanted the Cen MG16 or the Trinity Next. Which is a better Truck? I am leaning towards the Cen MG16, but I'm not completely sure thats the way i want to go.

I was not fond of the next as the diffs and tranny gears are partial plastic and not the quality of CENs diff and tranny. When they built the MG16 they based it off 1/10 components. It is a tuff truck.

If you like the looks of the NEXT i would recommend looking at either Xrays mini nitros or the VTX mst1.
The VTX is almost the same as the next but built with better parts in the drive line and suspension. My only issue with VTX is parts availability.

I think the MG16 is bigger than any of those also. I have no problems recommending the MG to any one.

Ok Thanks for the info. Yeah I was considering The VTX also. Just didn't mention it. Isn't the VTX a 2wheeldrive? I'm really looking for a truck that I can go anywhere with. I just got back from driving my stampede in the snow. Its 2wheeldrive and it got stuck every minute or so! haha.

I got one yesterday. Very neat truck. I got hooked on the small scale nitros from the sportwerks chaos - which blew diffs like it was its job.
This truck appears to be very solid.

I wanted to spare myself the blisters of pullstarting so I installed a roto start from my old Savage! The rotostart bolts right up but you must install an HPI S25 one way bearing in it as well, since the Cen bearing is too large. THen it fired right up the first try!
Had an easy time breaking it in and it fires up like a champ. This will definately be one of my favorite fun trucks to play around the yard with.
