So this means that Trinity will deal with Xray for about a year, give or take a few months, get bored of Xray and then dump their stock and move on to something else...

besides stock electric motors I will not buy anything else associated with Trinity....

You officially refute a merger between RC America and Trinity. However, you appear to hint (at least to me) of something happening between Xray/Hudy and Trinity. True or not true??

That said, we will always seek opportunities to improve our products, distribution and race team. However, I can assure everyone this will be done autonomously as far as ownership is concerned. Obviously this does not rule out how to best partner with non-competitive products or manufacturers that can compliment the Xray/Hudy products. Strength comes from knowing what you do best. Strength also comes from recognizing your weaknesses.

The ultimate goal is to service the customer and provide them with the best products possible and offer the best support possible.

Xray should just acquire Trinity and get rid of all the useless stuff that Trinity sells. And then just focus Trinity on motors, batteries and a new line of speed controls and whatever accessories to support those three (3) product lines, hence the term "Trinity".

Unfortunately Epic's are the best for stock... Although with brushless coming and we all know what Trinity has to say about brushless I won't have to buy a single Trinity product soon enough... I will definitely not buy any Xray after this...

Trinity created some ill will with consumers for their early anti-brushless campaign.

Yea, they do, and it's a nice gesture. Hopefully they'll get on board with stock brushless of some sort in the future and encourage the races they sponsor to involve them.

I don't share other people's strong negative feelings for Trinity, maybe because I wasn't around when they were doing whatever it was that upset so many folks. I do know it's a slippery slope discussing it, though, and don't want to get caught up in it.
