Default CEN RC Monster Truck Series...thoughts?

Been eyeing these for a bit now, I got to see them in person last weekend. Watched them race and talked with the Cen Racing guys. I must say I'm excited for a more scale looking MT. You can tell they have done their homework and are already listening to customers. Don't sleep on these. I've already got my preorders in.

They have aluminum upgrades coming also, and all of them use interchangeable parts.

Solid rod as suspension? Is that a thing, or just for display purposes?

This just remind me of the wheely king tbh. It doesn't come off scale to me. SMT-10 is far more realistic with a wheelbase adjustment.

My opinion is that out of the box with no adjustments the WK and Clod are way more scale. The Smt10 needs wheelbase adjustment, shock relocation, the axles are too wide, etc. Let's hope the new Smt10 isn't just a new body, hopefully Axial listens and does some major changes and upgrades.

I feel bad for Axial because so many people want so many different things from the SMT10 re-release that a lot of them are gonna be pissed when it comes out. Personally I'm hoping for at least an upgraded kit version like the bomber had. Fingers crossed...

Back on topic, these trucks look pretty good. Its weird that the smaller ones come stock as 2WD with a solid beam front axle, but I like weird.

the SMT-10 re release i think is just new bodies. the "zombie" main driver i think had a sneak peak of them and or is working with axial on it. (the dude is smart! he built 2 MT's using dbxl drivetrain parts)

the mini 2wd ones have the option to be converted to 4x4! i looked em up.

If Axial just goes with new bodies, they will lose business. Their reputation is declining...

As for the Cen Rc MT series, all of them share the same axles and trans etc so the 2wd can easily be made 4wd.

He has been into rc a long time. I own two trucks he's designed. Surprisingly RC is what gave him an opportunity to drive for monster jam.
