Default Why no Black Widows?

Hi guys, I just wanted to ask why nobody uses a Trinity Black Widow 12th car anymore? If you look through pictures of any events that are happening around the world today there are loads of CRC's, BMI's, Corally's, etc but not one Black Widow! Any thoughts on why (and no "one liner's" like "because they are c**p!!" please!).

Cheers guys, Chris.

Because it is no longer made, and you can't get spares easily. A one-liner, but that's all there is to say!

The kit chassis had a very long wheelbase and was rather flexible. The updated chassis was ok, but in the end ..... it was just another t-bar car packaged with an AE front end.

I'll give it this much .... the pod is cool looking, lightweight, and low. But alas the bulkheads were milled crooked.

The answers are all one-liners, and mostly they say it was no good!!

Does this mean I'll have a hard time trying to sell mine?
