RE: Question for the Cen MT2 owners.

Chubby, they are very durable trucks. I have bashed mine relentlessly and very rarely break anything. When I do break stuff, it is usually minor and repairs are very cheap.

A note for all of you...

RE: Buying my 1st Nitro. Suggestions?

If your nitro truck does not conform to local noise ordinances you can be cited for breaking the law. Most nitro trucks I have seen have not been loud enough to warrant anyone calling the cops. If...

RE: Question for the Cen MT2 owners.

RE: Suggestions please!

It all depends on what you want. A Cen MT2 is a good 1/10th scale MT to go with. they are durable and inexpensive to repair. If you want something larger go for a Cen Genesis, Mammoth or a Savage.

RE: Will changing crystals effect radio?

No, it will not affect it. The crystal only determines what frequency the radio transmits and recieves at. the transmitter determines what distance the system works at. How ever, Better quality...

RE: I need help with cen mt2 radio.

Amac, with either the savage or the Cen you will want to replace your radio at some point. The Cen will allow you to replace the radio for the same price as a stock savage. You also want to look at...

RE: What are the stock needle settings for the CEN MT2?

Yup, what Wnt2play said. You may need to go four turns or only three to get it to start though. Depending on weather and temps the stock settings can be either to rich or to lean.

RE: BIG CEN MT2 PROBLEM!!!!!

counter clockwise loosens the shift screw so it will shift sooner. You may want to take a look at the shift catch on the second gear spur to make sure that its not damaged. Sometimes the catch will...

RE: CEN FUN FACTOR>>IS THIS A GOOD TRUCK??

The other thing to look at with the Cen is the cost of replacement parts. they are far cheaper than any other company out there. So with the low start up cost, the reliability of the truck, and the...

RE: BIG CEN MT2 PROBLEM!!!!!

does it happen when you lift up the front of the truck and pull it along on just the rear wheels? does it do it on just the front wheels? If so, it is most likely a bevel gear or ring gear in the...

RE: Possible CEN section opening on RCU...

Compared to the Traxxas, HPI, and Mammoth trucks, the Cen trucks do not get the same level of chatter. I say no to a Cen forum simply because there is not enough traffic to support it.

RE: BIG CEN MT2 PROBLEM!!!!!

something may be grinding in the rear diff. Take the diff out and see if you can turn it by hand. If not you will have to open the diff up and see what is causing the binding.

RE: BIG CEN MT2 PROBLEM!!!!!

Does the clutch bell spin? if not your clutch might be melted, this would cause the trans not to spin either. The only other thing it could is a mis-adjustment of the brake actuator on the throttle...

RE: New Genesis stuff

Dunno why there is a contradiction in who was driving. It could be that who ever was driving just shot a bunch of video and Cen edited what they wanted. Or the wheelie vid was shot by Cen and the...
