This really shouldn't turn into a CEN hater thread. But you have to admit, they have been behind the curve for SO long. At one point, they seemed to be a breakout player in the industry with some pretty nice stuff. That was 2-3 years ago. I don't know what happened, but it's been downhill ever since, at least to my eyes in the US market. I honestly think it is too bad. I liked my Matrix buggy.
And, who in their right mind thought this brushless conversion was a good idea?
That says to me, CEN has totally missed the curve. I would rate that design even behind the HPI Sprint 2, which is a really lousy electric sedan.
Don't take this all wrong though. I did like CEN in the past and their unusual slant on things. It just seems as if they have lost touch with the current RC industry and it's consumers.
