Default How about you buy one and twll us!LOL

Just kidding! It's what it is, a 70% clone of a old school Maxx! Alot of the parts that would break you are not able to replace with T-Maxx parts! There is one member of this forum that bought one and did not like being lied to about interchangable parts with the Maxx!

i was just wondering if it would be a good starter truck cause it's $249 on ebay and heard some good things and some bad things , what you metioned is true , about the parts not being interchangable .but you can get the replacement parts staight from there site.

Just my opinion, but in the world of rc monster trucks, there really is no such thing as a "beginner" truck. It's not like flying a plane where you should start out with a trainer. Just spend the extra money up front and buy a T-maxx or a savage because the parts are readily available everywhere if you break something (which you will).

ok so what's top top speed of your nitro rally and the MT2. Witch witch one would you recomend for a beginner on nitro , it's for my friend i've been in nitro for a couple of months now but i don't know exactly what to tell him, i started out on the savage and now have a hpi rs4 mt. Also witch one would be better to race at a local track. do they have a 2 speed trans. I know the pricing and that's very reasonable , (been thinking about gettin the MT2 for me ) i here it's a very good truck. thanks for answering my questions , KennyC

MT2 will do about 45mph. For race, i will go with MT2 instead of rally becaues i personally like MT2 and there isnt really a class for rally or any track actually race rally vechiles. 2 speed tranny are standard on all 4wd vechiles.

Check out the lastest RC Car magazine race coverage. 2 of our factory boys make into A-main in Sidewinder nitro explosion with stock setup MT2.

There is a post with a rep from CEN that tells how to put a .21 in the CEN MT2. I am thinking about getting one for my kids and putting a .21 in it.

I dont. It will all depend on their schedule. We already provide them with the car so all we can do now is wait.
