WOW... No one within TM has a comment about the concerns posted earlier/above by myself and hardadz... If you want this car and your other products to succeed in the US... Racers want to know what's in the companies plans for better distribution in the US, better Hobby shop support and more awareness of TM at the tracks both onroad electric, nitro and offroad... You know what??? I'm good... I'll just stick what I had plan on racing with. No need to reply. It's not worth it. .02

I was interested in this chassis too, but TMA might not be interested in the US market anytime soon. At the current state, it is too risky to drive this seriously with so little support.

I hope they can sort things out with the hobby shops throughout the US... Maybe a better grass roots effort to show/release there products would help Getting the local Non-sponsored drivers some kits and putting TM... the G4S and the E4 out there for more racers to see... Electric and Nitro racing is year round in SoCal and to not see even one of these cars or off-road buggies racing in SoCal is a shame... And Trinity is not the only reason for this problem either... .02

I can not now speek for TMA.
BUT.........

There is nothing "wrong" with the distribution of Team Magic Nitro vehicles in the U.S anymore. Just because some dealers have yet to stock the line, does not mean they can not get a hold of the products !!

I spent the better part of 3 months attempting to convince dealers of this and the plentifull supply of parts TMA now are able to hold.

Any dealer can sign up with TMA and get Team Magic aswell as many other quality branded products through them.

The E4.........now there's a whole different story!!
All I will say on that is that we all rode the "see-saw" when we were younger didn't we. So we all know how it works. The end with the greater weight, unless they push(do something) will alway's win. They control the ride!!

I'll leave the rest for you to figure out.

I am the owner of a Med Sized Hobby Shop and I can tell from my prospective if they dont find a distributor in the Us with a team that can test the car on carpet and help with parts support then this car will not do well.

I know that a good size distributor in the Us was trying to work a deal out to carry the car but could not come to a agreement with them.He said they did not understand what it would take to succeed in the Us Market.

I dont think the distributors in the Us are the problem I think it is Team Magic

I think Team Magic feels that they will sell cars because it is new but it takes more than that.

Exactly so !!

There's a power struggle or people with differing idea's within TM that make them seam dissorganized and unprofessional in the way they do business.

When they sort themselves out at management level, they will really be a force to be reckoned with.

But you are right, there's nothing "wrong" with the product, quality or supply. There's nothing wrong with distributors.......in the main

So.................

Their cars are some of the best in the world, the E4 looks as though it will be no exception too!!

Just collected my E4
unfortunately is cannot fit an Orion 4800 or a Trackpower 4900 LiPo pack
So it looks like my Cyclone will be around a little longer

Very unfortunate and sad to hear.
I guess thats what happens when you forget where you came from.
I sincerely hope TM can come to there senses and smell the smoke ...
