CEN Racing is proud to announce the new Matrix TR3 truggy to accompany the Matrix in CEN's racing stable. The Matrix TR3 may look similar at first glance to the Matrix, but the Matrix TR3 is not a converted Matrix with long arms. The components have been redesigned to take the beatings that truggies go through. Starting with the Big Bore 16.5mm diameter shocks, super long suspension arms that enable sure and steady handling, rugged 6 gear sealed differentials that can be fully tuned with silicone diff oil.
CEN Engineers designed the Matrix TR3 with high performance, lightweight, ease of adjustment, along with simple maintenance in mind. The composite arched chassis braces reduce the chassis flex but without the added weight of using aluminum braces. And if you want to tune differentials, just remove six screws and that's it! The Matrix TR arena is a truggy that you won't dread to wrench on.
Along with the new chassis braces, the steering and suspension have been optimized to work with the larger truck wheels. Truggies are known for power and the Matrix TR3 doesn't disappoint, the Rev-Line .28 pull start engine will have you throwing rooster tails around your backyard in no time. If you want a 1/8th scale high power truggy, the Matrix TR3 has arrived and is waiting for you at your hobby shop.

Engine placed towards the front of the truck for effective weight transfer
Extended Chassis for increased stability on bumpy tracks
Low CG design throughout
Increased front kickup for better rough track handling
Adjustable Wheelbase with a 10mm adjustment range(365-375mm)
Low Profile body / High downforce wing

All New Rev-Line
4.6 / .28 Engine Powered.
CEN Racing is introducing a new engine for the Matrix Buggy ! This new 4.6 engine is manufactured by REV-Line Racing Engine to CEN's specification.

144oz high torque servos for both steering and throttle are included. Those high torque servos are made of high qualify aluminum internal gears support by ball bearings.

New and improved cross pin differentials in their kits and RTR for added stability. These new differentials provide more traction off power along with more stability on loose conditions. The new differential system is extremely smooth and very effective for increased performance! Center Differential: The Matrix TR3 is equipped with an all new, ultra strong and lightweight center differential that minimizes rotating mass while offering extremely smooth diff action. This new center differential is 40% lighter and transfers power with smooth efficiency. Front and Rear Differential: New Bevel gears are precision cut and designed for optimum efficiency. The new gears are made of ultra strong machined steel and lightened for reduced rotating mass. With exotic steel and precision CNC machine work, these differentials will out last and out perform competing brands.

Super strength 4mm aluminum front and rear shock towers. Matrix use aerospace aluminum chassis components and CNC / Steel drivetrain parts throughout the truck. Heavy Duty shock towers, turnbuckle, handle bar, high impact bumper, list goes on. The Matrix TR3 has undergone a serious diet resulting in a much lighter, faster, and efficient buggy.

Outdrives: New Outdrives have been introduced to the Matrix TR3 allowing for lighter rotating mass along with a much more durable material. The new outdrives transfer power with ease and strength. The new outdrives are 30% lighter and much stronger. Drive Shafts: The Matrix TR3 has gone on a serious diet! All new extremely lightweight drives shafts now come standard with the Matrix. These drive shafts have been reduced in weight and are 60% lighter than their predecessor. Light drive-shafts undergo less stress to the out-drives as less rotating mass is distributed by the engine. All new wheels: All new ultra lightweight racing wheels are equipped on the Matrix TR3. Designed with rotating mass in mind the all new 8 spokes Y harness design offers style, strength and efficiency.

Shocks construction: Large 16.5 mm Aluminum shock bodies provide extremely plush suspension that soaks up the ruts and bumps.

Quote from this thread - officially from CEN Racing:

"Latest Update - it will be loaded onto container Definitely will arrive before the holiday"

Maybe i am just an old stupid Dane with grey hair - but were i come from - the word "definitely" means serious business....obviously not with the people at CEN Racing - very, very depressing IMHO...

I cannot get into my head, why CEN Racing clearly gives it a higher priority to market a ME-16 brushless rather than keeping their words and giving old, loyal and much laughed at CEN fans, what we have been waiting for for more than 2 years now.
Furthermore the tone - in this forum - and at others regarding CEN - is getting harsh, non-friendly and show litle respect to hard core CEN fans - and not a word regarding CEN Army too - in spite the fact that i even asked specifically about what is going on...

Sorry about the lousy moode guys - but i think i just about had it.

Happy newyear all anyways.

Best RC regards from Denmark
