CEN Racing is proud to introduce the biggest, meanest monster truck ever released in the R/C world. Built to out climb, out power, and drive over all other trucks. The Genesis comes standard with our huge and high performance racing engine connected to an adjustable 3-speed transmission for brutal bottom end torque while still maintaining good top end speed. The Genesis's unique suspension set-up adds extra dampening to smooth out the toughest terrain and still keep itself on the wheels during high speed cornering. This truck was design for the hardcore monster truck fanatic. Simply compare features included standard on the Genesis and the choice is simple.


Main Features:
<UL>
<LI>.46 Big Block</LI>
<LI>7.5 inch Tyres</LI>
<LI>4 Wheel Steering</LI>

the genises has stronger joints than the savage 25, has the same as the ss, it has a 4 disc braking system, savage has 1, it has a 3 speed tranny, same type as the terra crusher, it has working shock reservoirs, the plastic parts are identicle to that of the savage, same as the TVP construction

i have spoken to a few people in the know and they would not touch cen with a 100 foot barge pole...give them a year or so...they will re release this truck and fix all the bugs...then it will be a contender with the savage

but u have to gonna hold on for a while, remember when the Savage 21 was released? how many alloy parts were there? not many, so i would rather wait for at lease 6months after release so Cen can flatten out any bugs.

I HAVE A SAVAGE AND MY FREIND HAS A BFT. THEY ARE ADAQUETE. HOWEVER, I HAD THE PLEASURE OF SEEING THE GENESIS IN PERSON, AS I LIVE NEAR CEN. THEY WERE DOING SOME TESTING ON IT. I MUST SAY THAT TRUCK IS BAD AZZ.!!!! I READ THE COMMENTS THAT MAXMOD SAID. AFTER SEEING THE TRUCK I COMPLETELY DISAGREE. CEN SEEMS TO BE GETTING THEIR ACT TOGETHER. CUZ THAT TRUCK WAS AWSOME. DID YOU KNOW THEY EVEN HAVE A RTR SEDAN THAT GOES 73MPH OUT OF THE BOX? RIDICULOUS. THEY SAID THAT THE COST OF THE TRUCK WILL BE AROUND $500-$550 U.S. STREET PRICE. I THINK MY SAVAGE IS GOING ON THE MARKET ASAP SO I CAN BUY THIS ONE.

even though CEN stole the TVP design from HPI


the TVP's are aluminum hard anodizing makes them look as is they where powder coated


also theres a few things on the CEN that i wouldn't mind


the HD universals and shafts larger tank Resovior shocks and the 7 1/2 in wheels
and the .46 BB eng

Actuall... The original TVP design came from an old Kyosho truck. It was the first to use TVP's.

the four wheel steering would be hard to use i reckon.. turning at high speed..!!





i dont think it is as good as a lst or savage

Time will tell if it is as good or not. Any deascent radio would be able to dial down the effect of the 4WS if it was needed. I like the idea of 4WS though. Steering is the only thing MT's struggle with.
