When I spoke with Barry Baker about the Nitro TC3 after the CASTLE CLASSIC here in San Jose, CA about 2 months ago, he said it will be out close to the Thanksgiving hiolidays so it will be ready for sale come Christmas in the US market. Same goes for the Trinity Reflex after I spoke to Joel Johnson at the last RCCAR club meeting in San Jose, CA. Most new cars that come out, especially those with big hype, often times come out a little before Christmas to take advantage of the Christmas buying season.

Looks cool!... especially the one from K Factory... but it's gona be some additional weight...if you're driving one way, it's gona add on to the braking problem...

i spoke to the importer of trinity parts (custom model cars at penshurst, sydney) and they said they will have them in about 2-4 weeks, not sure on price, have to wait but i'd say arount the 900-1000 mark (AUD)

what do you think about the air flow in that area? I would say the cut out is only for weight saving purpose.

It is actually less weight. The cutouts are not only for weight savings, but for esae of battery replacement as well.

Geez thats not such a bad price considering the hop ups on the vehicle....... r u able to have a test drive when they arrive Nitro Dave?????

Up here in Qld we are paying around $650 - 700 for the stock V One R kit...... an interesting alternative when u weigh the pro's and con's up.. i guess it will be entering my mind and giving me nightmares!!!!

I'll keep driving my "all black" V One R. It looks more "classy" than the Trinity I reckon. Tho I do have a soft spot for graphite decks.......

If you want to use the k factory fuel tank for your V1R, dont get the kawahara upper deck as you need to make a big hole for the fuel tank support and the kawahara one doesnt have the proper area for you to make a hole for the purpose.

Have just got the k factory low CG fuel tank, it is cool

since you guys are drooling over the trinity did you know that NEO will be releasing a V1R copy as well!

it's comming out of the same factory that makes the kyosho version, (gs silicones) and will inevitably cost less. around $400 australian or $200 us dollars.

the NEO version will be available in early 2002.

guess what i'll be driving in a few months with a 1+hp rear exhaust engine.....
