Interesting, never thought I would see an Associated front end on a Trinity car.

Hmmm, looks like Dieter took his front end with him when he left.

Typical Trinity, small photos with no detail and from what I can see, nothing interesting or innovative on the car. You could take the name off of that web page and it could be any other brand of 12th scale 12L conversion. They probably have that thing priced over $300, too.

Oooooooh, but its all black, it must be cool. They should have named it, the Black Hole. Trinity is like McDonald's... nothing good, just hollow calories killing you with useless fat. I'm lovin' it!

It is an open forum and some of the points brought up are valid points.

Do you have any answers besides telling them to post somewhere else?

trinity has used the tie rod front end since 94 i think. maybe sooner.. if you dont mind keeping an eye on it all the time, it is very nice.. Super smooth, and works alot better then the associated style.. But it is a pain i the butt.. im stil using it on my trinity cars.. if you dont hit stuff, it doesnt go out of adjustment...

Get used to it, rumor has it trinity is cutting the strings with Losi, Rumor I might add. I noticed no more BK or MF parts available in the site. So maybe it's true.?

Keep wearing rose colored glasses.

No bashing, just no love for Big E and his industry tactics.
