Thumbs down Trinity and RC America are forming an alliance.

My sources tell me:
Trinity and RC America are forming an alliance. RC America is forcing all of their drivers to run Trinity motors batteries exclusively. Dieter is gone from CW already. From what I heard none of the drivers are very happy about it either!! I guess their not too excited about trading in their current gigs for a "Hope I can get paid and not end up in court" deal with Trinity.

This is just what I have heard through the grapevine!

Well with lots of great touring cars out those who don't like a merger if it happens can easily move to other teams and motors. It won't take long for guys to bail. No way is Lemiux going to run for Trinity or a few others that have contrats with other companys.

This is going to be great. Need to get some beer and pizza and watch the action.

Paul Lemiux threw a coffee creamer at me in a LV airport cafe....does this mean SMC is going out of business? ...discuss..
Yea man... it was me who threw the creamer. Paul has been known for a lot of things. Athletic ability isnt one of them. It may have been his idea though. I say still fine him.

As for the JD topic. I cant wait to see a Mike Dumas driven, Jim Dieter powered brushless Rev 5. Watch out Europeans!

If Dieter goes to Trinity I guarantee you Paulie will run Trinity. He and Deiter are very tight and will stick together......

Well, a lot of teams are cutting expeditures right now. Schu USA cut its travel team, Xray cut a few guys off their travel team, Tamiya dropped some guys, Associated is focusing on off road, Losi is in the weeds.

I think the only Electric TC team looking for drivers is Serpent. If a big money driver (relatively speaking) were to switch teams now they would have to settle for less than they were making before.
