Intellect will be helping us in more ways than simply allowing us to sell their product. They want to help us get racing strong again...They will be sponsoring some events in the future. more on that as it develops.

How does this effect the UK market? Do all UK matchers wanting IB and EP cells have to buy them from the UK trinity distributor, or direct from Trinity US?

a few batches were unstable....what about the great cells before and after those batches???

All of you Trinity haters amaze me. This hobby wouldn't be where it is today without companies like Trinity. Why does everyone hate them so much? Is it because they are so big?

I don't understand. I'm not a Trinity lover at all, in fact I only own 1 Trinity motor and nothing else, but I still know the contributions that they have made to this hobby since the beginning.

I'm sick of seeing everyone hate on Trinity for no reason at all. I think you all need an R/C history lesson.

I've been in this hobby for over 20 years, I don't need YOUR lame lessons. Reedy and Associated have done more positive for this hobby than "T" has, or ever would have. And oh, by he way, I'm entitled to my opinion just like you. So deal with it and go about your day.

I agree racing would go on without them. What I am saying is that in the 90 Trinity helped grow this hobby by leaps and bounds to where we are today.

I just don't understand where the hate comes from. I don't see this much animosity toward any other company.

Any company that has survived this many years has done alot to keep their market going. Even as far back as speedworks (handout battery races) Our spec series of the early 90's, or associated's promotion of what they called production racing. These things are looked at in different ways depending on which side of the fence you are on. But....from here on, we are getting racing back. Maybe it's time for a handout battery race again.....opinions ??

It would be hard to explain as far as a racing stand point. Now from a hobbyshop standpoint I can say the shop I deal with don't carry any Trinity stuff. Reason being for one when they do order it is never in stock and the biggest is something new comes out and promoted as the latest and greatest......you get a few of them and when you try to get more they are not being made anymore. How do you tell your customers that a product they bought only a few months ago is no longer available. This is just a few I can think off the top of my head. I have more but I'm just giving an answer to your question. The rest is up to your imagination.

wyd...valid complaint. Sometimes it cant be helped, but sometimes it just stops selling and gets discontinued. Since I'm going to most of the races again I may get a feel for the demands.
KE4. In the past, we had pre welded 1400 scr packs, engraved with the driver number. Seems like we had 2 per driver. I'll look into it
