It is the same car as the Kyosho V-One R. They use about 90% of the same parts. Good car. Check out the V-One R thread for more info.

good car, built like a tank, weights like a tanks, some of the k factory stuff is good, others like the pulleys are junk, get the stock kyosho ones and you willl be happy, ran the car for a few years, got the evo conversion for it " from kyosho" and the mtx 3 rear up rights, much lighter and better handling car.

Default Trinity Reflex still going strong.

fordman500;

I am STILL racing my Reflex's almost every weekend.

In the stock configuration, it makes a great parking lot racer.

For large permanent high speed tracks with loads of traction, it can be hard to keep on all 4 wheels without some changes.

Other than that, the Reflex's few weak points (what Car doesn't?) can easily be fixed.

Tower hobbies has all the parts that you would need for the car, knuckles, front and rear arms and belts is all you would really need, the car is very tough.
