Default Is the CEN matrix pro kit any good?

they got em online for cheap and i want to get a new truggy,my hot bodies lightning stadium is getting too hard to find parts for and it sucks.i just got a new engine for it and a new titanium gear servo as well as the dx3s so i am set up to swap everything into the matrix pro kit.looks good to me.and i remember when i was in orlando florida that was THE truggy to have.everyone was winning with it.now i dont have to have the newest greatest truggy,i just want one that is built well,STRONG!n and has parts avalable for it and i see em online all day.

So does anyone have one and what is your thoughts on it? do you recomend getting one?is there any tips or trick or upgrades i got to get?
Want to get some opinions and thoughts on this.might be getting one in a few weeks but i want to make sure i am not getting myself into something that i will regret.i dont reace yet but i want to start.but mostly bashing.

Also any thoughts on the CEN gst 7.7?

Well the CEN Matrix sounds just perfect for you. It's a very durable kit, and at the perfect price range. As you can see, it competes with the best of them, and parts probably aren't going to be hard to get. The best upgrades to get are probably the front CNC steering knuckles. The stock ones are sometimes easily broken, and they inhibit steering capabilities. The rest is really as you want or have money for. If you plan on racing, the top upgrade/conversion is the BCE chassis conversion. It changes the geometry slightly, and it makes the truggy much lighter. It is not a necessary upgrade though. More so for the hardcore racers.
The GST 7.7 is a huge truck, but I would recommend getting the Nemesis 7.7 instead. It has a stronger driveline and differentials. It is also lighter, contributing to the durability. The only things you don't get is a third speed and reverse. Think of the GST as the Bentley will all the bells and whistles, and the Nemesis as the Dodge Viper..hardcore and utilitarian.
Good luck with your choice. You can't go wrong.
