it is not true. the R pin lock up point is not the rear or front side of the fuel tank. when you see a trinity reflex you will know what i mean !

No NO, trinity passed the sticker logo to Kyosho to stick it on the car.

Ha! I don't think any of these cars have a patent even! Takes up too much time, resources and money! That's why we see similiar car kits, but just with different brands tagged on!

Anyway for us consumers, this may not be a bad thing! More hop ups and parts could be used for both kits too... I'll be definitely be keeping track of their hop ups and if I like it, I can even use it for my V One R!

Never. Trinity and Kyosho have a very good business relationship. Kyosho is the exclusive importer of all Trinity products for Japanese market.

Yeah, I agree to that point, but I don't see Kyosho gaining any benefits from there at all... If it's the Trinity guys at the podium, no one would talk about Kyosho...

Unless Kyosho wants to open up more of the States market, which is dominated mainly by the State's makers with brands such as Trinity, then that would sound more reasonable... But even so, I don't see any hint from Trinity that the Flex originated from the V One R...

Anyway, perhaps we've enough of all these talk... at least we know there's another group of people that drives the V One R... The Trinity Flex guys... More guys to discuss... more talk... hehe...

Hey, I realised that Manitcore has been rather silent on this issue... Perhaps he's already out hunting for more goodies for his V One R!

I think I have enough comment about this so call Trinity Reflex car. Any how, if trinity sells it at 500 CAD it is not a bad deal consider that it comes with so much goodies from k factory. After all. to me this reflex is still a heavily hop up VoneR ! no difference.
