For Bashers, By Bashers!


Looks like the CEN Racing Ford F-450 Dually has gotten a wicked make over. The Updated F-450 KG1 Wheel Edition has a few more goodies that the last one. starting with the obvious, the two new color options you will be able to pick from are Red Candy Apple and Silver Mercury. The Red Candy Apple truck comes with the Gold KG1 Forged Trident-D Wheels, and the silver rig has the same wheels just in black. Personally, I love the Silver with Black wheels, but it seems to be a 50-50 Split around the Squid Office.

The new Dually’s have 90mm Aluminum Pewter anodized shock housings, the bigger shocks make the rig sit up higher and look more off-road. I also love the grill on these rigs this time around, more so than the last ones. The new bed liners are also a nice touch, not only for a scale visual but the bed liner helps strengthen the bed, you can watch our running video for a demonstration. Big Squid RC did receive booth new CEN Racing F-450 KG1 wheel editions, and we are currently holding a CONTEST to GIVEAWAY for FREE the Red Candy Apple Ford F450!

Now since our Blue F-450 has been decked out with mods from 1:10 Rod Shop, I’m not really looking to take it off-roading to much. Some light trail driving, and towing is what Old Blue is used for. Now having the Silver KG1 Edition we can make it off-road worthy with all the KAOS Advanced Upgrades we already have in the shop! Other then the KAOS upgrades I have a different bed being 3D printed by my buddy Joe for the new Cen Dually. I would love to see Cen Racing do a set of off-road wheels and tires for the DL-Series trucks, because I know they would be wicked!

Cen Racing has become a household name in a short amount of time with the help of the Dually and a few other rigs. Cen Racing has been around the hobby for around 15 years and has always made decent rigs, yeah part support back in the day wasn’t the best for them but fast forward to today, my local Hobby shops and online has plenty of support. Cen Racings success is a true story of ‘if you work hard and NEVER give up on what you love doing”, amazing things will happen.


Hope you all have a great weekend filled with lots of RC fun! Till next time Keep Scalin’…
