CEN Genesis vs. Losi Super Truck

CEN Nitro Genesis versus
Losi Super Truck

The battle between Losi and Associated has been going on for years. It started in off-road buggies and stadium trucks, and now the battle is in the 1/8 gas monster trucks. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the Losi Super Truck (LST) versus the Associated Monster GT.

At a street price of $529, it looks like the CEN Genesis is giving the Losi Super Truck a run for its money. It has a bigger engine (.46ci vs .26ci), a better transmission (3-speed vs. 2-speed), more braking power (4 disks vs. 2 disks) and a larger fuel tank. And the CEN is again cheaper by around $70 USD.

Both nitro monster trucks are ready to run (RTR) kits. However you still need to buy items such as a glow igniter, fuel, fuel bottle, transmitter batteries (8 AA-size), and receiver batteries (4 AA-size).
