It isn't the best MT available, you could do worse though.

Fox, if you are looking for a cheap reliable MT to run, check out the Cen Fun Factor MT2. Like I said, its cheap and reliable. It is also very durable and very fast. Its great at racing and bashing alike. And if you get bored you can buy a few extra pieces and run it as a stadium truck, buggy or rally car. Its also 4x4 and has a two speed trans, and its shaft driven so you wont have to worry about belts binding. If you want more info go to www.cenracing.com or let me know. waihiwa2 can also help you out.

i think it is quite sad for people to come in here and just bash a truck cause they don't have one ... there are alot of real nice thunder quakes out there .. they have their weaknesses ... but so does all the other trucks ... i have 2 nice thunder quakes sitting in my house now ... the truck is 1/8 and all metal gearing ... 2 speed ... reverse ... it has alot of good features .. just a couple weak spots which can be cured with upgraded parts ... just amazes me how people say duratrax is **** ... every truck breaks and has up graded parts for it ...

WSW, dont get to wound up, T-maxx killer gets kinda rude sometimes. Also please don't assume that I was bashing the TQ because I recommened a Cen truck. I try to give people an alternative they may not know about.

Fox, thanks for the compliment. How is the truck hunting going?

nothing was against you mecky ... you posted your views and made some points about the cen .. i am not bashing the cen ... i just know what i have and it is not as bad of a truck as everyone says it is ... like i said there is not a truck on the market that is perfect ... all trucks have upgrades and hopups made ...

but he asked about the tq ... which is a 1/8 scale truck with a .21 engine .. yes the engine is weak for the truck .. but how many people still run the stock engine that came with their truck ... that is what is fun about the hobby ... you can make your truck what you want it to be .... like i said i am not bashing the cen .. they make a great product ...

lets ask the question why did you pick the thunder quake in the first place fox ??? and go from there ... if it is price ... then look at all the trucks in your price range ... but remember that all the trucks will break and need upgraded parts ... they all have weaknesses ... so if it is price you may want to look into a stadium truck or something different ... just look at all your possibilities ...
