I have to disagree with using the graphite powder, because it seems like my servo saver became stiffer on the left after i used the powder.

I have a new stock servo saver now and its turning much smoother now, but I don't have much run time on it. I guess I'll see in a few weeks.

Default Update from Trinity

Hey guts, i just got an update on what is going on at Trinity. According to them, Novarossi did not pull out from them, they terminated the relationship. Novarossi wanted them to pay the difference on the conversion from Euro to Us but would not allow Trinity to raise their prices to cover the costs. I was also told there are no issues with team magic they are just waiting on a big order to get all their parts in stock. As far as drivers leaving, Josh was starting his own tire company which was not well taken from the people at trinity which was supplying him with his racing equipment.


Another note, Trinity is releasing a new touring electric car next month which will also start a new racing class. It is called the Tspec and comes with kit, motor, battery, body, and trc tires. All you need is radio gear and an esc. I have a spec sheet on it if anyone is interested email me at [email protected], It will be on my site soon also.

Aggdaddy... Using graphite powder came from Trinity Tech support themselves over the phone... Using oils will attract dirt, using nitro cleaners can cause more harm then good in that area of the car. Like I posted before, that area needs to be kept clean before and after you run the car and the graphite power will lube the steering rail while running/racing.. If the steering feels stiff at one point in the steering throw, it might be that the rail mounts have moved a tad bit or your servo saver is loose and needs to be tightned. I have the Alum steering rail mounts in one car and stock in the other.... No problems... TM is aware that some of the early steering servo saver had some issues and are now shipping an updated one....

RCNUT... I'm talking about there online forum... All posts about the G4 have been removed... I posted there many times and a few other here on this forum as well... As for this issue with TM and Trinity... I won't get into that one, but I will just say this, TM is trying to find another US. distributor. Does that mean they are leaving Trinity??? No... All will come out later.. Thanks for the info and help... Again, great website also. Keep up the good work and happy racing.

What else do you think they would say? The mighty Trinity admit THEY are doing something wrong? Hell No.

I have practically every part they make on backorder. Trinity is waiting on a huge delivery from them any day. I am just running specials on the kits for the weekend. When the parts come in I may also do a special, keep checking out the website to see what I have. I am also putting a page on building tips for the kit. I started building mine this weekend and realized there are a few things that do not jive with the manual. If you have any building tips email them to me and I will put them up with mine.

Hi, I'm seriously considering in getting an Magic G4 'till the summerseason (mostly because my sponsor wants me to drive it)
What dp you think of youre G4's? Easy to build? Durable? Easy to Set-Up?

One more thing i wonder about is the weight of the car, because i drove a V-One RR Japan Edition last season and ready to drive it weighed in at just about 1795 grams (the swedish limit is 1700 grams) with many Titanium and alu bits and a really lightweight reciever battery. What's the weight of the G4 with regular electronics?
