Default trinity reflexteamonly vs mtx 3 prospec

I'm looking at both kits and can get the reflex t/a cheaper why do you not hear about them anymore are they outdated or? Also I'm thinking about getting the sirio evo2 modded by murnan has anybody had these engines or know pros or cons? Also what could I do to the team only for hop ups if any needed?
Thanks
Jon

first reflex has ben discontinued there new car was the g4 and they stoped seling it powerline is who distrubets the car now. trinity doesent even stock parts for the reflex. MTX3 is a very good car and every hoby shop around the country stocks or at least can get the parts pro spec is the only way to go.

Hey fame, ilaybrk right. Reflex is long gone, but it did have all the mods you would ever need. So I say there's no competition. Get the FW-05R!

Go get The Reflex NT Team Only... It's an excellent car I'm still using it as my race car..
As for the part if your LHS doesnt stock parts for the reflex You can use Kyosho V1R/RR Parts Instead....

Default trinity

hi , dont know if this is the right place to ask ? i have bent my 2speed clutch housing(clutch bell) holding it with mole grips trying to get the gears off , i have ask'd my lhs for price of replacement and the say the trinity one is 50 quid and has to be ordered , i want to know if the kyosho v1r/rr clutch bell will fit my trinity ? , almost everything else does, and i can probably get this from the shop down the road,

also would i be able to fit the cantax clutch from the v1r/rr ?

thanks for any help on this

The V-one 3D clutch end bell will work with your Reflex's Centax. The difference is that the Reflex end bell has a gap between the two pinions, the 3D bell pinions are close together. You may have to add some shims between the engine bearing and the clutch collet to ensure that the pinions will be in-line with the spurs.

There is no way you can compare the Trinity Reflex against the Mugen mtx-3 its like comparing a Ford Escort to a Ferrari Enzo

go get an mtx-3 prospec if you can afford it really good car

Default bent clutch bell

If you still have your old clutch bell there are ways to repair them using a high speed drill press and hard ball bit to reshape it and a fine milling bit. It's not that big of a deal If you would like me to try to fix it I would be glad to. Just go to the Da Hellion fourm

thankyou for the reply

i did give the clutch bell to a guy from my lhs , he said he would try and fix it ,on his laithe, waited for ages , when i asked him if he fixed it he said he thought he gave it back to me already and he couldnt fix it , i explained i didnt get it back of him, and i should be getting it back tomorrow,

would love to let you fix it for me, and would pay for it happily but i live in london uk , could i post it to you maybe ?
