And they say Microsoft has a monopoly(sp)
What is going on here? Why is it that Trinity gets there/his hands into everything?
Maybe we all need to start using OS engines and quit running Rossi based, maybe that will get the point across! We don't need one person telling the Nitro community what to run and how much you are going to pay for it, more like ROBBED!
Just my thoughts

That's all we need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if it is just Nova "brand" engines, or all Nova based engines? This could mean I have bought my last Novarossi.

Yeah, this is sketchy. Honestly, I think Trinity is trying to take over the RC world.

probably
next thing u know, all teh reflexs in the world have a computerized chip in them that activates once one million reflexes have been bought and gives the car a mind of its own
"must destroy all cars better than reflex(ie. V One RR, Impulse/705, MTX-2/3, GT4 pro, etc, etc, etc),"

j/k

Man, I'm getting tired of Trinity lately...

Too many products and 2/3 of their products are already junk!

Lets see here,
Ernie's sole importer for Rossi, Treadz Tires, has the V1R copied and then calls it Trinity's own design, THEN (I sure as heck hope not) he becomes ROAR President. This can only spell serious trouble for the entire sport.
Before we know it, no parts/cars made overseas will be allowed to enter the country unless Ernie approves it.
This all boils down to the all mighty dollar, has nothing to do with the good of the sport or growth.
Maybe it is time for a new sport, and get out of this " Money is the end of all things" Sport

Ernie didn't win the ROAR Presidency, but how much do you think this had to do with him running for ROAR President? You know this had to have been in the works for a while. Can you imagine what would have happened if he had won!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure this (Trinity becoming sole importer of Rossi, Sirio, & now Novarossi in N.America) also effects Trinity's marketing abroad. So therefore they have easier access and more support in European markets etc. From what I can tell, the Reflex isnt really very popular in Europe. Maybe some other Trinity stuff might be used, but it seems to me its more about Serpent, Kyosho, Yokomo, and Mugen in Europe and other parts of the world as well.

At the end of the day, Trinity is trying to reap as much profit as possible of market share. But there has to be competitive balance. Alot of RC companies are obviously not that large. So the larger one company gets, the less hyped and advertised and less accessiable other RC car's and manufacturer's products become. That is bad.
