Definitely a bit funky-looking (in a tamiya sort of way).... I do like the red one though.

Looks like the wheels on the reddish orange one are a little too narrow for the tires. They also look a little too toy grade to me. It will be interesting to see how the chassis layouts are.

There’s a few pics of both chassis knocking around. I’m looking at these very closely but haven’t heard of Cen before.
Here’s the Fiat

The diff gears look odd from that angle.

And the orange one

Edit : I seem to remember reading that the Fiat has 2wd and 2ws as stock but there’s going to be a kit to convert to 4wd and/or 4ws. Not sure if I’m right with that though, sure I read it somewhere but can’t remember where.

I am all about that Fiat MT. I love me Wheely King type monsters.

Thanks for posting the chassis pics. CEN has been around for a pretty long time. They make junky constructed RTR vehicles. Which is fine. They're not meant to be anything more than that. It's a company in the same vein as say Redcat Racing.

I was just going to say that they look a tad too fragile. That explains it. In stock form they're probably ok, mod them at all and they're gonna break immediately :explosion:
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

They had the specs in a post on CEN's facebook page IIRC. the only info i remember was that the wheelbase on the Fiat one matched up to the Wild Willy 2/WR-02 chassis, and that they will be shipping around December.
