Awesome! Please let us know how it goes. I am thinking I need one, but The mini madness was... well just OK, nothing great. Hopefully this is better and more customizable.

Yes please let everyone know how it runs and everything. We're thinking about stocking some but haven't heard any feed back on them yet.

Quite surprised actually, ran her in this weekend – put four tanks of fuel through her, made a slight adjustment to the carb and (only in the garden mind) gave her a little push of the throttle – constantly popping wheelies…. Then it rained!

It came with Skyion DSX, my first digital controller – so easy to set-up!

RE: My New CEN MG16
 
I recently bought an MG16 aswell, and I must be honest, this is one cool little truck. It's had about 10 tanks of fuel, and it's loosening up nicely. I've given it its fair share of bashing already, from cartwheels to flips to crashes from 2 feet high. No damage. Nothing! Compliments to the guys at CEN who designed this little monster, it wheelies all over the place, goes like an unleashed maniac and stands for quite a bit of bashing (trust me, I know!). A few comments for anyone who's looking to buy one, first of all, richen the mixture by a quarter turn before running it. I noticed someome else on the site moaning that it's an annoying truck because it keeps stalling. This is because the factory setting is a little lean causing bubbles in the fuel lines. Open the carb a bit, and the problem is solved. And you'll need a fair share of patience during the break-in period, this motor suffers severely from break in pains. Once broken in, you'll have hours of reliable fun. It's also kitted out with 2 3kg servos for quicker reactions, and a nice digital radio to match. So far my experience with this car is good, and after running it on my Mini Madness wheels, I've come to realise how good those Mini Dogbonz (Mini Madness) tires grip. That's my next purchase.

Keep on bashing!

Out of interest, how would I know what size body shell I could get to the replace the stock one? When I bought mine they didn't specify a colour choice - ended up with a pink body!

If known, which manufacturer or scale would I get???

MiniManiac 06-13-2007 02:18 PM

RE: My New CEN MG16
 
Same here, I also ended up with a pink body. As for replacements, I douldn't really know. I have a mini madness aswell, but that body could never fit as it's much narrower. I'm going to get a 1:10 mini cooper body and try to fit that, I'll let you know when I've got it.

Cheers!

The MG 16 is extremely fun and believe it or not, one of my favorite cars to drive. Its fast, durable and ....... pulls wheelies. Im a fan of anything that pulls wheelies. Plus we made sure that the price was acceptable.

Thanks for compliments guys. I am proud of our Research and Development team as this is a great product!

There has been a great response to the MG-16. It is now availible in all markets and we are absolutely thrilled to have a new market that is both fun and cost effective.... by the way the MG-16 comes with the skyion DSX

Just a heads up, I currently have an MG16 and an MG10 on the way to me for review for RCUniverse...

Is there a factory update for the muffler leaks that have been spoken of in other threads?

RE: My New CEN MG16
 
I called CEN for updates/upgrades yesterday on the MG16 and they had none to report. They said for us to watch their Website for this info. On the exhaust pipe canister I went on ahead and added sealant to the ends of the canister using the same sealant as for the carb, backplate and carb tightener.

Digout, how did the pede exhaust work on the MG16?

RE: My New CEN MG16
 
How much is it?

Muck 76, the Pede exhaust fitted-up like original. Today I ran it with the Pede set-up and found that it performed about the same as the MG 16 canister factory set-up (slow). I tried tunning every possible combination to get maximum power but it would not run any better. I went on ahead and put my Cen manifold and CD3 pipe back on and compared the two set-ups. The CD3 pipe set-up ran much better and cooler. Looking at the Pede exhaust I now know why it did not help; the tubing is sized for a .12 engine....1/4 openings vs 1/2 for the CD3. The Pede manifold itself tubing size is just too small for good exhaust flow. I went on ahead and dremeled out the Pede manifold about 25% larger to see if this would help. I have not tried it out yet since now I am trying to put in a HPI .18 engine in it.

Thanks for the info on the pede exhaust. I may try to make a CRT .5 pipe work as a rear exhaust.

I read your post on CEN on your .18 engine. I see you are using a SG crank.
Here is the engine i was thinking of using.
[link=http://www.osengines.com/engines/osmg2102.html]os .18cvrx[/link]
Like i had posted in CEN forum using SP34 or traxxas pilot shaft make make this work for the MG16. The engine has a prop washer all ready there. I think the flywheel will fit on the crank shaft and the pilot shaft will put the CB out to stock placement.
I believe your post said the CEN flywheel was smaller diameter for the crank, can you drill it?

Food for thought. I was going to post this on the CEN fourm but i figured they would not like OS engines link on thier site.

RE: My New CEN MG16
 
The reason why I am using an SG crankshaft is due to the MG16 flywheel mounting hole is too large for a standard shaft crank. The MG16 flywheel mounting hole is meant for SG type cranks such as the MG16 .15 engine. The MG16 flywheel bore will not fit on a normal SG crankshaft because the shaft portion between the front engine bearing and the threads is larger than the CEN .15. CEN's crank is smaller in this area thus allowing the the MG16 flywheel to move tight against the prop spacer. You are right that if the CEN flywheel bore is opened up a few mm it would then fit on other SG engines. Tsais makes an adapter to go from side exhaust to a round type rear exhaust configuration so that one can use rear exhaust manifolds.

Nice Collection. Must be expensive to maintain. I know of a good hobby shop online that sells parts at good prices and offers free shipping www.pradohobbyshop.com
