Default Trinity no longer has Sirio?

Is it true that Kyosho took over the distribution in the U.S.? Seems like they are taking over the engine line along with the ads in Car Action. Some rumors floating around saying they are broke and can't pay their bills when Trinity pulled their ads. Now, it makes me wonder how they keep going after losing one engine supplier after another.

Maybe now, without 'Big Ernie' after all their articles will be more neutral and will not get such blatant partiality on everything that showed and came from NJ importer. I was a suscriber and a monthly reader from June '92 and ended bored of being more and more a Trinity catalog rather than a mag.

Regarding the losing of another engine maker, will came better days for all American drivers who want to get a pretty good engine without being ripped and screwed with such bad customer service that 'Big T' earned with justice all over the years.

I noticed today that there's a notice on Trinity's Homepage:
"We are no longer able to warranty Sirio Engines" please contact Sirio at [email protected]

Information posted on Sirio's website points back to Trinity.

However I see no anouncement from K USA. If this is true, It does make sense to me because K teams at the Worlds have always run on Sirio power.

Kyosho America is the official distributor of Sirio Engines in USA.
They should be here by next month.

This is a really good news for us, racers, and I've no doubt Kyosho will take care of customers the way it's supposed to be done. Trinity go DOWN!
