I love it how people now try to associate whether or not how something may or may not perform to what it looks like(PRETTY/SWEET/SMOOTH or UGLY/HIDIOUS). I know you did not udge it, but why do people first give their impressions on something new based on what it looks like? Looks does not define performance, these things could care less what they look like, they only do what they were designed to do and looks does not play any part in it.

Well, perhaps because until you've tried the motor, the only thing you have to go on is what it looks like. It's ugly, but that won't mater if it's fast.

When you see a woman, do you think "wow, she's only okay looking, but lets wait and see how she performs." This is human nature, man, don't let it get you down.

Not sure what they could have done to make it look better without affecting its cost. Maybe design a label that doesn't use the "outer bevel" filter in Photoshop, and doesn't look like a late 80's arcade marquee. Take some of that money and hire a better graphic designer. Blue is passe too, unless you're into that whole "my first race car" look. X-Ray and Corally get it.

I think the blue will look cool...the label doesn't really mean anything to me. Most of us buy from individual tuners and not directly from Trinity anyways...so that label won't even be on it. I could give 2 squirts about Trinity's label. On track performance is all that matters. An you all know any one of us would run a dog turd in our car if it made us faster! So don't be so quick to call it a pile

For AARCMCC (the governing body in Australia) events, like states and nationals, stock motors have to have bushings. Bearings are illegal.

The cool blue is eye candy when it's sitting on the peg board at the local hobby store and the kid with the Traxxas Rustler wants to upgrade the 15 turn it came with RTR.

Trinity has had arguably the fastest stockers for the last how many straight years? They'd have to be out of their minds to release a new race-oriented stock motor that wasn't any faster than what's out there.
