Isn't the stuff on the Trinity site on the pricy side anyways? The earlier projections put the price at $6-700.00. This is quite a drastic leap. Heck, even at the "bargain" price of $850 or so ( a presumable markdown from the Trinity site) I think that would put the bugy waaaaaay out of reach of most potential customers.

Phenix Distribution is no longer the US importer for TM. We have no information regarding the M1

Hi Motorman.

If you don't mind my asking, what happened? I thought you were one of the premier importers for the M1?

I got this off neo-buggy.net


We have learnt that Team Magic will be announcing the delay of their long awaited buggy the M1 until the end of December.

A delay was anticipated by many with the lack of updates from Team Magic over the last months.

Dosent really matter anymore, got my new losi

I wonder if jconepts or proline will make a body for it. It looks like a nice ,different 1/8 buggy, but that body is really wack! Plus im not to sure about how the buggy will hold up and where i can get parts from in the US. I was trying to wait on it, but losi beat them to the punch, so now im a losi 8ight guy!

The "new" car is 20 grams lighter than the first version we saw... That's rougly 7 ounces. 2 years in development and they only noticed that the car is grossly overweight right before it's due to go to production?

That aside, at least they've taken the car in a better direction from what I can see... Except for the body, which is, as was so eloquently put, a "wreck"
