I think I have the right part #s
K1437 rear shock tower $47.00


I do not see the bulkhead unless it is the same part.

I can look easier with part numbers. Once my website is up and running I will have a part list on their with my prices.

Mike

I will be racing my new G4 at Jackson Raceway in NJ. I used to race in Statne Island on SUnday mornings. Just setting up firehose in a large lot nothing serious just fun racing. I will be racing most of the guys from trinity, that is where they race.

RCNUT... You say you drive/race with Trinity drivers and emplyees??? If so, you should really ask them what the heck is going on??? Really... Not comming down on you RCNUT.... Strange, if you go to Bouder.com and RCmart.com, the prices as so much cheaper and they're overseas... Bouders happens to be in Europe and there prices is still way lower then Trinity's... Go figure... Still can't seem to find a lhs shop in my area that stocks G4 parts except for one and they don't seem to want to re-stock the parts... I'm in SoCal, so you can understand me wanting to just go get the needed part and not have to order online everytime I break a belt or something... Trinity should really try to do better by there customers and shop owners and support the car. I'll run the car awhile longer... Then I'll sell all three and get a Mugen... Sad.. Trinity and Team Magic after a paying customer... Me.. who put out over $2000.00 USD into there products and see what happens??? Sad... You know, almost every car being raced out here is a Mugen.... I wanted to be different... Tried the HPI R40... Great support... Not so great car when the dust settled... Read about the G4... Drove one and was hooked. Super car... Horrible support. I'm not trying to bash Trinity even though it seems that way. You call them and they are very helpful on the phone as far as Tec support. But you ask them about parts, prices and end user support from lhs and all is not so well then.... Getting back to the fuel tank.... I wonder why Josh Cyrul lost two races with the G4 and now is no longer with Trinity... I won't go there... But as for the two lost races... He ran out of fuel... And he was a team driver and even he couldn't get the correct size fuel tank for the car... Trinity, do the right thing if that's possible and help your customers on this one. Do a fuel tank exchange or for those who's hobby shops don't carry Trinity parts, just send them one. I have 2 cars and one kit... 3 wrong size tanks... Everyone, I'll try to get back to positive posting... This issue is not just mine, but for every G4 owner... Just trying to help... Sorry for the anger.

Here's a pic of my 2 G4's... They are very well maintained... You all might see them on Ebey in the coming months.... It's one thing to practic, it's another thing to race and need support for parts and correct size fuel tanks at a fair price... $30.00... 20.00... 10.00 is not a fair price when the tank that came with each kit should have been the correct size to begin with... I still can't race until I get the corrected tanks... Having bad luck online trying to get parts as well... RCMart/Dinball...??? Still waiting for my order... Understanding that this is the real world and everything is not perfect... Trinity and Team magic should sell the corrected tanks for what??? $15.00 online with free shipping... $10.00 at all lhs... Just my .02

Really sorry for the inconvenience. We do sell the tank at a dirt cheap price to replace the original tank. In Taiwan, the replacement charge is around US$ 3 for a G4 customer with the old tank (freight paid by customers). I am sure we offer a much cheaper price to distributors.

We know the car & our service is not perfect. We are working to make it better. Please keep going on supporting us.

nickko.. I know you're trying to help... Team Magic is only part of the chain... The support overseas for the G4 is great and that reflects the great efforts from Team Magic. The problem is with your US. Distributor Trinity. I really hate to post the way I have. As I've posted, I have 3 of your cars.... And while the fuel tanks issue has been corrected and the price point fair overseas, Your US owners of the G4 are not getting the same support. That to is unfair to Team Magic as they are trying to do the right thing. What can your US. owners of the G4 do to get the correct size fuel tanks at a fair price point??? $31.00 USD on Trinity website and at hobby shops for the fuel tank is to me not very fair... and I have 3 cars. Nickko, I know you're just one person and are doing your best to help and I thank you for your support. Can you please give us some kind of direction as to how to get the correct size fuel tanks at a fair price point for your US. owners as your overseas owners did??? I see no one from Trinity has a commit about this... Not trying to flame Trinity in anyway... Just wondering if anyone over there cares...

Strange thing, even Trinity's 1/10 electric Sedan driver don't drive Trinity's nitro cars here in Socal... They chose to only drive electric... To get the word out about such a great car, you would think there Factory Team drivers would do both... Barry Baker does it for Team Associated, Atsushi Hara does it for HPI... Also, when you compare prices of parts... That's the part that has be seeing RED... Even the Serpent 710's fuel tank cost less then the G4... I can understand Serpent costing alittle more then the rest, but the Team Magin/Trinity G4 parts costs are to the Moon... Trinity just raised there prices on there webpage as well... I'm in for the long haul... Already have to much invested in the car to change right now. Man, this car drives so well and it handles Super... It's Trinity and Team Magic that makes staying with it so hard... There is only one Hobby shop in SoCal... That's from the Mexico/United States boarder, all they way up to Northern California that has G4 parts in there store... Oh, most if not lhs's have Trinity Electric parts... Batteries and Motors... But no support for there Nitro cars... There's more support for the old Reflex/NT then there is for the G4... Broken promises from Nick Ko/Team Magic Nick... The rising costs for parts online here on Trinity's webpage... Oversea shipping cost for express shipping that still takes almost a month to get to you... Oh, I'm still waiting for my order from RC-Mart as well... Payment posted, but no one seems to be able to locate my order even with the tracking number... You see why I'm so mad... Team Magic and Trinity should give there US owners a break and support them alot better... For a fuel tank that cost $25.00 USD 2 weeks ago to now cost $31.00 dollars now is just unfair... I have 2 cars and one kit for extra parts... So for 3 fuel tanks... Plus taxs, that's over $100.00 USD's for something that should have been corrected before the car shipped... And still no compensation for the error... I'm not here to bash the car in any way.. The G4 itself is super!! The best car I've driven and I've driven almost all of them except the new Cen car... lol I'll pass... When I see the support of OFNA, MUGEN, Team Associated and Serpent at all the local event's and Trinty is no where to be found except a few banners posted.... SoCal of all places is where they should be trying to bring this car into clear focus... Where are the hobby shops that carry the parts in the area??? I mean from over a 300 mile radius, only 1 shop carries parts and that's only a few parts... No re-orders for parts already sold out... Am I missing something here??? Everyone here, please forgive me letting off some steam... I'm really sorry... I guess in your parts of the US and the world, support is great... I feel like the guy on the movie Cast-away on the Island... For support and cost of up keep. Oh, for those that don't know, I have over $2000.00 invested in the G4... So I'm not cheap... But 31.00 USD for a fuel tank... Promised support from Team Magic about testing a new Steering servo saver... Then no word from them at all.... I'm not a Josh Cyrul or Barry Baker type driver... But when people and even Team drivers from the other major companies ask me about the car, support and cost for parts for the G4... I tell them the car is great... But.... They leave shaking there heads laughing. I know this problem can't be fixed over night.... But action speaks louder then words... I guess I'll have to buy all my spare parts overseas... Wait 3-4 weeks to fix a broken belt or a dog bone... Or go through Trinity page and pay 2-3 times the cost... Does anyone know of any hobby shops in California that I might have missed that carries G4 parts... Anyone can order parts.... I can do that... When a part is needed, you should be able to go to a lhs and get the part...

I am creating my price list as we speak. All parts will be shipped priority mail for $4.50 with tracking and if you spend $100 I will pay shipping. Just email me at [email protected] and I will email you a price list. I will also put trinity's price on the price list to show you the difference.

Obviously we're all in agreement that this is a great car. Just that the product support at the distribution level is SERIOUSLY lacking.

This is such an important issue, I hope Team Magic addresses this ASAP. Otherwise "The Year Of the Monkey" will have everyone laughing at them.

Don't forget it's a public holiday in China, from the 22nd to 24th of Jan .. Chinese New Year .. so you can probably forget about getting support in this period.

"GUNG HEI FAT CHOI" everyone.

Hey RCNut,

Why don't you add some parts descriptions and names with those part #'s on a web page.

How do we order from you?

I am working on the descriptions, I do not type that fast. They will be available tomorrow or saturday. Email me and I will email you the updated pricelist with descriptions. The part numbers should also be in your manual. You can email me orders and I accept paypal. I am figuring to take orders Monday & Tuesday morning, ship out Wednesday for Friday delivery. Or Thursday for Saturday delivery.
