Lightbulb Official Trinity Merger News Thread

Yes, there are discussions about a merger.

No, it's not Custom Works. Think bigger.

Have at it.

I believe Dayger runs for Corally, Dumas runs for Losi and Trinity already and Cuffs runs for Serpent and Trinity as well.

Lets hope it is not true, that if for sure.

Yeah but that means that they might have to go back to x-ray and race only x-ray cars.

Down sizing or just running out of money? That team was/is a hungry team lots of people to feed and there might not be enough to go around anymore.

Exclamation

If these reports are false, then I would challenge an official spokesperson from either RCAmerica or Trinity to come on here and refute them.

Otherwise...where there's smoke, there's fire.

I can officially refute a merger of any type between RC America and Trinity. RC America is the exclusive distributor of Xray/Hudy products in North and South America. We have and will always be fully committed to the Xray/Hudy product line, its distribution and our race team. 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.

OK, so the two companies aren't merging into one.

However, there will now be a racing "partnership" between the two companies, correct?
