the NEO version will be available in early 2002.

it's coming out of the same factory as the kyosho v1r (gs silicones production line). quality would be just as good as kyosho.

maybe someone can correct me here but....

Copies can correct any faults ( if there any) and are usually updated versions of the original..if copied correctly...

Copies are the best form of flattery, they did not copy a TC3 Nitro... they copied the V one R...

Copies or originals.... why not buy a copy if you cannot afford the original. I am sure all of the V one R owners will buy the copies spare parts, if they are cheaper and of the same quality.. pure economics...

First of all, there was only one Trinity car at Crystal Park. If I am not mistaken at the regional race he qualified like 5th. Now, he was racing a trinity motorwhich Picco motors are'nt on par with the RB motors. If you want to compare him to say Barry and the TC3 than there is none. Barry was on rails all weekend and no one was even close to him literally. After the first two laps in the main he was already lapping people. To blanket a car and say it is slow is not a very astute observation. At least say it was lacking corner speed or something that means something.

You the hit mark Damo! When Barry raced up here with the Nitro TC3 at the Castle Classic in San Jose, CA , he was on rails too. After the first 3 minutes, he already pulled away from the other sponsored drivers, like Swaugger and Tossolini. Baker could probably beat me with a Tyco car! I bet if you gave the Trinity car to Baker, and gave me the Nitro TC3, he still would spank me. Plus there are only 2 cars in existence that are currently racing right now...one by Joel Johnson which he raced at Salinas last month while he was here on the West Coast from NY, and another in So cali. The other cars are either in the hands of magazines for photo shoots and articles or are still in a warehouse somewhere waiting to be shipped.
