Default GST 7.7

I havent been able to get more than one tank of fuel through it with out something breaking again. Cen support doesnt even respond when sent emails. I have run nitro trucks for many years in a fun backyard setting and never owned such junk as this. I have two duratrax trucks that I can beat and beat, other than a loose screw now and then they still run. I have less than a gallon of gas in this cen and I'm gonna have to completely disassemble replace bad parts and set up myself. I just hope I can save someone the mistake of buying cen

I have a feeling quite a few people will disagree with you here. I for one love my Genesis, and if it breaks, it's usually because I did something to it. Or something just wore out from all the raw power of the truck!!! (insert Tim Taylor grunting here)

Hey Pal..Sounds like you can't handle the big boy toyz...Yes there's a little bit of a probem to start out with...You done your research on this truck..GST
So you knew what you were getting into going in too it....But with all that said.. There are people here in the forum to help thoses who ask for help..
Not trying too bash you in any way..But you have to work on the problems that come up..One at a time...Every product out there has problems ..Every
company..Does not matter what brand name..Jusy my 2 cents worth....

My GST rocks. I haven't even broke one part yet, besides a leaking shock. Mine also looks great running.

What parts have you broke?

Hey Mastercrash
Sorry to hear you have had so much trouble. I only had a little trouble, just to do with the hand controls, not the truck, and I know you're not a newbie like I am, but I can tell you that the guys here on the forums are great, they are all usually very willing to help if you need it. Just gotta ask them nicely and they will help you any way they can, well in my experience anyway. I am really glad I have become part of this forum, cause it is a great source of info, support and encouragement, I hope you get your truck sorted out, I haven't had mine long, and it's my first nitro, but I love it

Never had a problem with mine in almost a year and im running with the centre diff locked for half of that,
im running it on tarmac and concrete and grass and been jumping it and have yet to damage it,
I`ve had a lot of nitro trucks and this is by far the most durable,
been using my self made wheelie bar and running on it flat out on it and its a blast to drive hope you enjoy ur new truck

check mine out on rcu videos search for, cen gst wheeliebar.

i have to admit too, every time i run my truck, somethign breaks.....now 98% of this is because im a noob and only had a tmax 1.5 knockoff before the gst so i needed to learn different thinks about the truck, now everytime i need to order parts, i order whatever i can to get a stockpile.

HA HA HA

WHAT A JOKE!!!! The starter shaft was machined wrong right from the factory it tore up the pin, spring and recoil hub. cen's so called support told me to call them and they would give me a discount. A discount,,, how nice of them. It must be my name "mastercrash" that caused the part to be machined wrong according to the dogman. I understand in this field thing are going to break and that is half the fun is working on the truck, but for the very little I have ran this truck and the very light conditions it has been in it should not be breaking.

There ya go. I think you ought to go back to your Duratrax. If you thought so much of them, why did you change. Happy trails MC.

How much do you want for your GST? I have a Genesis LE and this truck is amazing. I did pretty much upgrade everything though.

Bud ... only one thing comes to mind. You come in here trashing everything about Cen and have 0 to contribute. Like I said before, if you like Duratrax , go for it, no one is holding you back and be sure and not let the door hit you in the A&%. Later Cl^%*

How did you crash? It took cartwheels and flipping around, along with the weight of the cage for me to break the cup. And that's not counting the hard landings and a few roll overs from before.
