One of the guys came into work....downloaded all the orders......it snowed more....lost power, stuff got missed....


And your order had some backorder stuff on it, so we waited.....as we got the run around about when certain items would be delivered to us......Dealer orders take a bit longer sometimes.....

In Feb....we started to get really behind on modified motor orders......so like Trinity, Orion, Checkpoint, Fantom, and Reedy have at one time or another.....I used an OEM winder to keep up with production.


And I got screwed.....

Eddie...perhaps you could contact Curtis and beg him to pay you...and then offer to pay you .50 cents on a dollar (Curtis normal practice) and then everyone can call you a moron for asking for your money!!!

Yeah I guess I was wrong "as usual" when I asked Curtis to pay for me after a year!!!!

Rick......short, sweet and to the point. EXACTLY!!!!!!!

Sometimes tuners just seem to make products, and products, and more products, but then almost seem to drop off the face of the earth.
It just seems like the way of things.

From my understanding, Curtis never made good on the promises he made to Greg.....so Greg decided to move to vegas and become a bartender....

Well.............things didnt work out at DC. I really don't want to get into what happend because Curtis is a friend of mine and he had some personal stuff happen. I wish him the best.

I am in Vegas and was looking into the Bartender thing but I got in with a good group of people at a graphic design company called Liquid Graphics. I am having a great time and I do not miss the pressure of racing one bit. I do miss "some" of the people involved in racing though.

I must say that I find it kinda funny to see Ernie Provetti on here talking [email protected]*t about Curtis and what happened between them. Ernie built his company by f...ing people over and has the nerve to drag Curtis through the mud over something so petty.

What is that old saying?..................People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

Default Thanks Greg...

Greg, how I built my business and the stories that you like to tell are one thing....but basically not the truth. Just like what Curtis did to Eddie, myself and a lot of other people on the board.
Trinity has been in business for 27 years!

TRUST...when a customer prepays you for a product, or sells you a product to rework for them and gives you "TERMS or CREDIT", they expect you to be a MAN and be RESPONSIBLE for that debt.

Saying that you have personal problems, or drink a couple of beers and call everyone a**holes does not cut it "in the real world". The real world is comprised of "hard work", relationships and living by your word.

If I was so bad, then why did you want to race for me AGAIN? Hey you made a personal choice and went with DC and things did not work out for either of you. Sorry about that, but now dont complain about everyone else because of what you perceive as your "good friend" is being trashed or complained about up here.

It takes more than building "ONE GOOD MOTOR" to be in this business. ANYONE can do that and someday you will understand that.

I like you Greg and I always have but I pray for your sake "before its too late" that you understand "what I am saying" and "get it" and make something out of your life. You are a good guy with a lot of talent (other than driving R/C cars) but "offering people .50 cents on a dollar, looking the other way and not paying people, keeping customers pre-paid monies for yourself" is not the way a MAN runs his life!

All the Best to you....Ernie
