Default HPI

Aren't you familiar with Josh? He is Trinity Racing. It was the G4, of course.

Thanks,

I was at the midwest series this weekend and saw the g4 of josh cyrul, and I must say that it is an impressive car. A lot of things seemed to be well thought out, this is the car that I may go to.

I am a serpent fan however the problems that I have with my impulse seem to be constant. It has been a good car to run, but now I am ready to ditch it for a better car and the g4 looks like it will be, I only hope that parts will be available when the car is released.

Josh could win with a shopping cart with a 12 in it. Arguably the best driver in the world period end of story. The guy has reflexes and focus same lap over and over time and time again. If you've ever seen the man wheel his 1/8th scale you will stand there in awe saying how the hell does he do that.

2 words- Kenji Osaka.

No doubt though that Josh is an awesome driver,i was at the worlds in 2001 and if it wasn't for the belt that went on his car then he probably could of got second,but Kenji drives the smoothest line i've ever seen,not that flashy but gets the job done.Can't wait for the worlds later this year!

Personally, I think Josh is a better driver than Kenji. I have seen pictures of both driving and Josh is far smoother. His turn is coming.

not to take anything away from josh, but who else was there? did AE, mugen, serpent etc send any of their guys? no offense to any of the priveteers, but if josh cant be a bunch of local guys then there would be something really wrong with his car.

also just a note about the reflex, at the winternats this year, the team losi guys that went ran mugen mtx3's not relfexes, and josh ended up 7th in the main, and he has never really placed well with the reflex.

There was competition for Josh, Brian Berry was there for Serpent, Walter Henderson was there for Associated, they where among the top 5 "A"main qualifiers that where on pace with Josh, or at least close. There is some local talent in our area, they're not all out west. And Motormans right, I think Josh could probably do what he did with almost any car, we're just saying that his new car worked. I am also looking forward to getting my hands on one of his new sedan bodies, his 1/8 scale design was what everyone was talking about all weekend.
