What people don't realize is that Cen is like Traxxas was in the beginning. Yes they had some major issues in the beginning. But now like Traxxas they have some very nice, race winning rc's. I really think many don't have them for the same reason many don't have LST 2's. It's a price thing. But for those of us that are in the Cen Genesis/Nemesis club we love them. These trucks are like tanks. Parts can be picked up off ebay mad cheap. They rarely break, and they have tons of torq. These trucks haul ass. The MGT honestly is junk compared. Have you seen all the people getting rid of those things these days? Out of the box you really need to dump so much cash into them. It's just not a very good truck. If I did not have the cash for a Gen/Nem I would much rather have a Revo or T-Maxx over a MGT. MGT is the twice removed step child in the Team Associated family.
NOT everyone loves them. I loved the appearance, and size of that Genesis LE, until i bought one. The truck would not run consistantly at all, from one minute to the next. To make matters worse, CEN's service was purely horrible. The thread was deleted on the CEN section, but it lives on the web in other forums. I will agree they rarely break, and they do have alot of torque. Im not sure if the threads still exist, but why dont you do a search for all the old Genesis threads, and see how many people got burnt badly on those trucks. They were horrible. I would have stood by CEN, and fixed anything on my truck, had they worked with me on any issue. Their attitudes turned me away big time. I still look at that GST, and the Nemesis and think how cool they are. But im not investing any more money in something that may not run well at all, that the company does not back up. They really need to take some lessons from TL, and Associated on customer service. When they have an issue, they fix it for the customer. If i get the urge, i'll see if the 8.0 engine from the MGT fits in that Gen LE i have collecting dust here. Might breathe new life into it.
