the monster truck says its 1/7 scale but its actually about the same size as a savage.
I wonder how they determine what scale it is.

it does look like the size of a savage but maybe it is bigger in real life.

Just two cars that Trinity will forget about or dump in a year or two!! Buyer beware!

Look at what happened to Reflex NT, G4, KFactory and Picco. I'm sure I missed a couple more.

Just on more reason of many why all the hobbyshops in my state refuses to carry their line of cars.


BTW, I posted this on RCCA's Spyder forum and it was promptly deleted by the moderator(Steve Pond?). Hmmmm.....

Look at it this way it is just one more product that will be on backorder everytime you order one!!!!!!!!! Its funny you wonder how they sell anything as everytime my shop orders stuff from them its almost always on backorder. Teh shop I go to has had TRC foams on order for pan cars for over a month and they were told not til middle of October. Worst thing is the shop owner races for Trinity. How can you always have anything on backorder.

For you information FREAKAH,

If they dump it in two years, i think thats a long enough run.

The reflex was out for 2 years before it was replaced with the G4.
Long enough run on the Reflex car, dont you think. Funny thing is, i called Trinity looking for Reflex parts, and dont you know, they still have parts in stock.

The G4 is still available from Trinity and there are parts available for it to.

Just my opinion

Well at least they did do a little change to it. 1/18th scale 4WD. I wonder how much of it is close to Losi's design.

Other than the lack of oil-filled shocks and the wheels, it is actually pretty different from the Losi truck. Obviously it looks similar since it's a 1/18-scale truck, but I wouldn't say it's a knock off. It's also very adjustable: plenty of shock mounting locations, pivot supports, etc.
