Thanks for considering buying a CEN vechile. Ive ha mine for almost 4 years now and enjoy every minute of it. In fact I have the CEN rally which I enjoy so much. You may be familar with my site already www.garyssubaru.uk.tt which is a FUN FACTOR domiated site. You can find on there alot of info with regards to the FUN FACTOR which should be of use to you when chosing your nitro RC Car. The one thing with CEN is that spares are quite difficult to get a hold of which can be a pain from time to time but once yu find the right hobby shop which has good customer service you shouldnt have a big problem.

The rally is good for running on unprepped car parks, pavements, roads (without 1:1s on) etc. It wont keep up with the fast handling touring cars through the bends, but the speed difference isnt much, mine with the OS.18 CRV-X fitted is quite a bit quicker than some.

The shaft drive is great for that kind of running, stones etc dont harm it unlike belt drive cars. So that leads onto gravel car parks and tracks or leafy tracks etc. This is where the fun is to be had! The stock tyres deal with it all pretty well too, a lot of after market ones tend to balloon up due to the rallys speed.

As ever the radio gear is poor, same with all FF. You will definately want a failsafe for it and maybe uprate the steering servo to a high torque one from Futaba or Hitec etc, along with a 6v rechargeable battery pack. Id recommend you get the heavy duty diff gears, or at least find somewhere that stocks them, it could just be my driving, but I killed a lot of stock ones. The metal brake disc is good with an uprated throttle/brake servo, and the alloy brake seat stiffens it all up. Thats more than enough for starters.

Overall theyre a lot of fun for the money and easy to find some place to run, and with a few upgrades, very reliable if maintained well.

Check the link in my sig below for a few more ideas on upgrades. You will have to copy and paste it into your address bar.

I ran the Peugeot (sp) bodyshell on my rally for years before switchingit to a truck. It was abused on dirt, dust and road and I still have it today. The CEN bodyshells are not the thickest but that means they flex rather than split, at least that is my experience of them.
