If G4S gonna be distributed by Trinity again, I will sell mine and get a MTX-4 ASAP. that is for real.
+1.

I've ran Mugen buggies for many years. I almost bought a Mtx4. Seeing the distributor on here offering personal support, and wanting to try something different is the reason I gave TM a shot. I'm very happy with the car, but I have a bad feeling about the future of TM in the USA. Just mho, but if parts get scarce and the prices go up I'll go back to Mugen in a heartbeat.

What I can confirm is that we are no longer the US distributor of TM and K factory. This bomb was dropped on us late last week. We had no clue it was comming. Like being broadsided in the left turn lane. If you think they are making a mistake feel free to tell them so on our behalf. If you think they are making the right decision feel free to tell them that also. We cannot officially confirm who the new Dist is as they would not tell us. The shock and awe of it is still soaking in, for myself, the dealers, and the U.S. race team.

Called you back a few times. When is it safe to try again?

Motorman put them on the map and this is what happens Very dissapointing but not surprising.
The value of good faith and personal customer/dealer relations built this year in the USA by Phenix apparently were deemed expendable.

Motorman:

Sorry to hear this, your support for the G4S was A+...

Will you continue to run the G4S or move on?

looks like he may have used the kawahara roll bar with the original mount but only gansei can confirm or deny this

If Dennis is out, I am gonna start saving for new car
let hope they choose new distributor wisely, better they choose phonix again
What is wrong with TM, their recent movement seems wierd, first the wierd buggy, then the fregile bulkhead, now they kick Phonix Dist.

I get G4S mainly because Dennis did a good job in keeping the supply. now Dennis is out, I doubt I should keep G4S, good cars is out there, G4S isn't the only one.

I reemember when I got my mongoose, RD logics was the only place to carry parts and they were expensive!

then outher stores starting carrying parts and the prices slowly dropped, if they go back up, i can easily pick a mtx-4 over a G4S

Like so many of you I consider Dennis a friend. In the RC business I consider him a great source of knowledge and someone that was always free to share what he knew. He inspired his race team to do the same. Dennis is and has been an asset to all of us.

I am not sure who Team Magic decided to get as a distributor, but hope they will follow in the steps of Dennis and Phenix Distributing in relations with racers and dealers. Anyone can buy products and distribute them. It is the relationships you build that counts in the beginning, middle and end.

As a dealer for Team Magic I know they have a great car in the G4S. I seen Team Magic give the necessary tools to their European racing program as seen in their results in this past year. I know they will not stop their aggressive program overseas as well as in the States. They are on a roll and have an exciting Off Road car comming out that is "NOT" a me too car! They have other exciting cars in plans for the upcoming year as well. Team Magic is building high quality innovative cars at excellent pricing for all customers. We may not agree with all their decisions today or in the future. That is life! However we can enjoy the quality of the car like the G4S we all own, and note how they keep looking to improve this car as seen by recent K Factory parts.

For my customers, I just want you to know that this situation does not effect or interrupt the in stock levels of all Team Magic and K Factory parts and cars to Raceday Hobbies.
