it was my fault ..
after a crash the batt plug came out and the spurs šatešthe cables , the batts went in to short circuit and then two of them exploded in my face , and a caribbean pirate born in the track , i used the patch in my right eye only 24 hours...

I gues if darren doesnt know about it I doubt Dario would too.
Sure we will find out shortly.
If they do, were are they???......I've never seen any Trinity official drivers and or support person from them around here, like Dennis Richey did when he was the official USA Dealer...if you get back to page one you'll see he created this thread......WE MISS YOU DENNIS !!!!

I agree. All you have to do is read the posts prior to Trinty taking over and after they took over, and one can easily see how the thread has gone more chat than useful tech info. Very little factory team input. I mean who other than Bobby Flack 's stature is even on the team? If it wasn't for Sam at Raceday Hobbies, we would be hard pressed in getting parts here in the US.

Trinity has made no effort in getting product to the LHS. I know 1st hand. They are hurting TM in the US. Trinity sucks!

Mike Blackstock is supposedly running the car as well. It would be good to get some feedback from him as well. I know he's new to the car but any little bit of input would be welcomed.

Yeah it is a bummer. 1/2 way into last season I decided to get a new ride at the end of the season. I raced the GLC last summer & with the pace Bobby Flack was generating decided it was going to be a G4s. 3 days after getting my car the whole scenario with Dennis erupted and I was immediately bummed. After much deliberation I decided to stick with it for at least 1 season & see where it went. BIG THANKS to SAM @ RACEDAY for keeping this car alive in the US. Trinity has teamed up with Tower to offer the car and after 3 months they still don't have a single part available for it. How lame is that.... buy the car here but your SOL if you break & need a part. If that's any indicator the future for the G4s here in the states is growing dimmer. Their best shot now would be to pull it from Trinity & offer it to Sam as I doubt Dennis would take it back at this point.

Good call ASIL. They are a good battery. Make good the connections with VERY hot iron as the metal Duracel use for battery terminals is very hard but of good quality.

I think Dennis washed his hands with the whole affair. He's into.....something very interesting now, but not cars

I wonder how many of us are surprised with Trinity?
You only have to look back a few short years to see how they messed things up with the Team Magic 1/10th Reflex. Then it carried on with the early G4 E & C's.
And now they have their hands on the "S"

If it wasn't for the fact that it's a good car and for the help it was given by Dennis and now Sam at Raceday Hobbies. It would have fallen some time ago.
The G4 "family" has alot to take credit for also and thankfully, TM take notice and address concern's ,and are willing to look at idea's for improving the car.

I have been driving Team Magic car's for around 6 or 7 years now for precisely these reasons. Thanks to Sam at Raceday Hobbies I will continue to do so.

Thanks Sam for your help and support for me and to the car. "The G4s"

Check ebay for GP 1000 mah batteries made for the G4s. I think there is only one company custom making for G4s. Its already soldered and shrink wrapped. You can actually save because you don't have to buy separate batteries, solder, connectors, shrink wrap, etc. I've ordered twice already for like $24 dollars per pack. There is a discount if you order two. Got the battery in 10 days. I think TM only has 800mah packs.
