They offer them for sale, but I'm not sure they're actually sell-ing...LOL

The shop I go to got some in and they were in the bargain rack at half-price pretty soon thereafter.

Shouldn’t the title of this thread be "Totally un-Official and Wrong Trinity Merger News"?

How about, "RCAmerica defies logic by entering into corporate alliance with Trinity, therefore placing drivers for both companies in a bind due to contractual obligations to other companies."

Brushless Motor System Myths

These points below are in reaction to ads that have been run which we feel could be misleading to the customer about Brushless Motor Systems. In our opinion, this is a technology that is not all it is advertised to be.

Only Need One Motor: False, you will still need several motors for each application you decide to use them in.

Motors are Indestructible: False, Brushless motors can still be susceptible to shorts due to faulty winding, debris entering the motor and heat.

Torque and RPM are the same as brushed: False, you will need to give up one for the other. That is another reason why you need more then one brushless motor.

No Maintenance: False, cleaning, bearing replacement and magnet zapping will still be needed for top performance. Also, any damage to the motor can may cause the motor to fail.

Brushless will take the battery war out of play: False, Batteries will play a bigger part since brushless systems depend on high voltage, amps and super low internal resistance to operate as a race motor. Bottom line... you will still need to have quality batteries.

Some say the Speed Control can be programmed to a spec level and everyone will be the same: False, again at this point batteries will make a huge difference. Good quality packs will be essential. In the end, a " Team Driver" will still have the advantage due to speed controller programming knowledge, access to unreleased technology and the ability to jump the regulator that restricts the amp flow. It is much easier to just tech a motor.

Brushless Performance: There will still be better motors than others due to manufacturing tolerances. Remember the price on a brushless motor when you have to replace it because it does not perform as claimed. Since there is no easy way to maintain and keep a brushless motor up to original spec (i.e. rebuild) it may be necessary to purchase new motors often at a very high price to keep up with your neighbor or racing rival.
This screed lifted the old "Straw Man Fallacy" to sublime heights.

Isn't almost all the stuff posted in the Ad above true? But in spite of all that, they are still the wave of the future, and better overall in the long run...

I agree with Dirt and for those of you who like to bash on the net, why don't you use your real name rather than hide behind those screen names.
