the next is not trinity... its a rebadged IRC vulcan with truggy suspension/tires and a good engine. It got a great review on Rc Driver with the exception of a servo and diff gears. i have yet to encounter problems with either of these and ive been jumping it and running it hard to test its limits. GREAT car i suggest it to anyone.

THAT is incorrect......

basically its like this. the company that makes the vulcan parts makes the TEAM VTX parts as well the TEAM VTX and the trinity NEXT are more alike then the VULCAN i know this because i OWN all threee (AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED THERE ALL REBADGED) check out my thread about the 3 cars... (Team VTX cost the same as the NEXT

Personally i think the rascal is over priced. you can buy a 1/8 scale buggy for the same price. lol the TEAM VTX comes with A BUNCH more upgrades over the NEXt and the vulcan like METAL DIFS, 2-SPEED,TONS more LLOY parts. etc.. check out the thread link below..

Also the rascal isn't legal for any 1/16 racing for those that intend to do so...

I agree, everyone thinks you have too spend $$$ too think it mean it is good,wrong......

I recieved my team Vtx on Friday in the Blizzard we had here and man it is AWESOME, I just had too set the front toe, and I checked the castor on all 4 wheels, already dyed the wheels,but since we got dumped with 10 inches of snow now I cannot run besides in the garage which is packed[:'(]with the Vette and the PWC....But this thing is built too last

I got that snow right along with you! yes the garage filled with my 2002 firebird WS6 makes it hard for me to :P


Yes i had adjusted the toe in and caster etc.. but i also switched out the radio box from the next if u look at the VTX thread for pics. glad your as happy as i am..

im keeping the rx in mine for now. i am using my better radios in my nt18 and nt18t etc.. but i did swap the battery tray because the vtx one isnt really a box.
