Team Magic sucks...plain and simple. They screwed over Trinity, screwed Barry in a BIG way and now their distributor in England. Show's their true colors and just proves that its hard to find trustworthy companies to deal with in China, Japan, Tawain.....I guess the good part is that their are still some very good companies there too to deal with.

Team Magic= Crooks

What's wrong with Japan? It's probably home to the biggest R/C racing populace in the world, and has tons of great companies that are part of this hobby. Hell, the Japanese companies have probably done more for R/C than any American company has.

EA Motorsports: Either way, they do make badass products that are proven on the track.

Barry Baker is a good driver. But for that matter he had made a poor first impression on me back in Dalton GA. Perhaps he thought he was above the rules and could do his own thing. But whats good for the goose , is good for the gander. Dont play by the rules and it will cost you. Racing R/C cars is no way to make a living. Yes , some people can do it, but it is a fickle and cruel world. I have seen drivers come and go... switch from team to team.
In todays economy it is difficult for one person trying to be a distributor for a manufacturer. Having to put up front alot of coin to just keep an inventory .
Do you think you could afford paying someone to play with toy cars and keep the doors open just selling one or only a few products? TRY IT!
Yes, I know for a fact that others have been screwed over by T/M and had their exclusivity withdrawn. But companies need exposure and circulation. If they feel that the product isn't being shown enough or just not selling.. they have to do what is neccessaery to make their products known and redily available. I'm not saying its right but, for instance ,, Trinity took the awesome F8 bag that was about $150 and then tried to charge people $250. So Ernie gets an extra 100 for pimping it out ? Not my money!!
I personally do not own any Trinity products.... NOT ONE! I did keep a few boxes to store some cells in though. But I put my 3700 integy packs in them. Lets not start a world war over toy cars and buisness ediquete. Its a dog eat dog world out there everyone wants a piece of the pie.
I just got an E4 and its an awesome car.... it has a few issues yes. but what will you all say when one of them beats your ass on the track!?
