Default Trinity looses Nova Rossi?

I just copied this from SGrid.

Can anybody confirm?

Wouldn't that be sweet?

"#829 of 834 by xxxxxxxx on Sun Feb 22 20:57:42 2004:

NOVAROSSI HAS FIRED "TRINITY" AND AS OF 2-20-04,THERE IS NO NOVAROSSI
IMPORTER INTO THE USA. GREAT PLANES AND TOWER HOBBIES ARE ONLY SELLING
WHAT THEY HAD IN STOCK PRIOR TO THE DIVORCE. THE "TOP" P5 IS IMPORTED
THREW "PARIS RACING". THE "REX" P5 IS IMPORTED THREW MUGEN SEIKI.BOTH
THE "REX" AND "TOP" ENGINES ONLY ARIVE IN THE USA ABOUT EVERY 2-3
MONTHS,MAKING THEM MORE DIFFICULT TO KEEP IN STOCK. RB CONCEPTS ARE
SHIPPED INTO THE USA ABOUT EVERY 1-2 WEEKS.

It is a good news............when I was in HK about 2 years ago doing my vacation.....picked up a brand new (just came out) Nova Rossi RS12 T5 S1 5-port Turbo engine from a hobby store....I paid $150 US (no friend's discount or speical thing....just walk-in and buy)...

Came back and check the TOWER site....TRINITY selling it for $295.00...............I understand using the HK price is not fair, but, less give them 50% mark ups, still....should be $225 US, which in todays price range, $225 for a almost fastest stock 5-port NON MOD 12 engine is very decent...(like NS3, NS5, NS12, V12, Nova Mega SS 12.....etc, they are all around $220-240 range now)...

Never understand the MARKUPS thru Trinity, but they might thing THEY are the only place to import the Nova Rossi engine.........so they don't care about their mark ups....

Unfortunitely..........they totall underestimated the power of INTERNET..............thru all my friend, whos actually buying their NOVA ROSSI engine thru TRINITY since...? NO ONE.

How true it is!!!!!! I order my Nova stuff from HK. I'd rather spend an extra $20 for shipping than buy from Trinity. Besides, the HK prices are cheaper, so it works out in the end.
