Default Cen MT

Well im just helping my friend pick out a truck.. He can only spend around 300$ He was looking towards stadium trucks, but this thing is just like a beefed up stadium truck.

How durable is it, and he wants to know if its all around better then a nitro rustler, for jumping and bashing.. He wonte listen to me i told him rustlers suck for bashing but anyways..

The Cen is a great little MT it is very durable but has one week spot the diff cups which can be taken care of with a simple mod.

I own a savage and an MT-2. I love the mt-2's overall preformance.... Great truck lots of speed and big power... it seems mine gets alittle more powerfull everytime I use it.

I recommend the CEN MT-2.

I would get way in depth but I gatta get to school.... cya

The Cen MT is a great truck, its easy to work on, easy to tune. And parts are very cheap. Its very durable, and can stand up to the abuse that a new owner will put it through. It also converts to a stadium truck by switching tires and the clutch bell. Plus, there are quite a few of us on this forum that can help your friend out if he has any problems.

My CEN takes way more than my savage... I'm not sure what you go 21 or 25 but I got a 21 and it is nothing compared to my CEN. I am thinking of selling it and upgrading my CEN MT-2...

It is a great truck... But I think it is all opinion... I wish I had a video camera.[sm=tired.gif] I would do a comparson test and show you.....

Alright im talking to zach on msn right now.. He thinks the cen is just as big as the savage and mad force. Even though i told him the cen is barely bigger then a stadium truck. He just doesnt believe anything i say.. Can someone tell him that hes wrong? Thanks.

The cen is a cool little truck but quite small. The mammoth in that pic compared to the cen is quite a big difference. The mammoth is a litttle larger than the savage but not by much. As i see your looking more into the cheaper priced trucks assuming you are on a budget. Why not look into the xtm mammoth?

I don't know, he just believes the very 1st thing he sees, and then after that nothing can change his mind about it.. Witch is stupid on his part. He seen someone say the mammoth sucks and now he thinks the mammoth sucks just because 1 person said that lol.

Yup. I bought a Cen MT2 for all the reasons stated by their ardent supporters.

I regret it. Diff cups broke after several jumps of 16 inches high. It's a hassle to work with.

I would say the first upgrade you do to the cen would be a new radio or the diff cup reinforcements
