    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    ericke1 -

    You can get aluminumn rear hub carriers, aluminum front uprights at myhobbydepot.com Purchase the ones for the Team VTX MST1. Go under parts for 1/16 gas off-road. These parts will most absolutely work. I purchased them for myself - they are the same!! Im in a hurry right now but if you have trouble finding them let me know. Also it is better to call than order them online. I paid about nine bucks for prioprity USPS and got the parts in two days.
    Hi Wootham.

    Here is what I want to get, please tell me if they all will work, also I need the screws to install in this area as Im missing one of them, u know what to get? How about the upper suspension arm? I cant find those.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression




    Yes, all three of the items you have selected to go with from myhobbydepot will work just fine. When you install the rear hub carriers make sure you install both of them as they have a slightly diff. angle than the stock plastic ones. Be very careful removing and inserting the bearings from the carriers. It is possible that you might need to file a small amount of space in the rear carriers to get the bearings to fit. This is NOT because they are not the correct part, it is just because of the way they are made. Here''s a tip when you are looking for parts in the future - compare the part number of the part you want to the part number from a place like towerhobbies ignoring the first three lettters and paying attention only to the numbers. If the numbers match chances are you''re in luck.

    As for the CVD''s from amain - they appear to be correct but I have not used them like I have with the parts from myhobbydepot. Unless there is some performance reason for you to use this upgrade I would recommend using the stoock dogbones as tehy are much cheaper. Good luck!!


    As for the screws you can purchase the ones you need from tower. I just checked and they seem to have them in stock or you just go to your local hardware store or to a place like Home Depot.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    No problem dude. I know what it was like when I was looking for parts - especially aluminum. You will love the parts from myhobbydepot.com. I am thinking about purchasing the rear susp. arms that they sell. Dont know if they will work for sure but I would bet on it. if only they sold some front aluminum ones.

    I''m tellin'' ya dude, head on down to the hardware store. Bring one with you and if you cant then bring the part with you and find one yourself. You should be able to.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    when ever I need screws I usualy hit the LHS and look around. Most of the time the screws I need are there. If not I find them at the Hardware store as well.

    This truck was a great Idea. But it really needs to be re done. The dif gears need better metal in them, the engine mount neds to be completely redisigned and the plastic is basicaly crap. If you look bas in this thread I defended this truck in the beginning. Now I just cant any more. If I break things cause I am bashing I''m cool with it. But if I can''t find parts fof it..... Sigh same song and dance.

    I will keep checking this thread and offer what little help I can. I found out that the vendetta can''t take that venom batt with out some serious mods. So I may get an inferno 1/16 like 90 bucks from A main.

    Till then thoes that have the NOW running. Rock on!
    If it aint broke, fix it till it is!

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    I called TRINITY today. explained the gear that i need. Toni let me know they expect a shipment in soon. Which means they don''t have them in stock. I''m alittle pesimistic, she was very nice and helpful. The odd thing is she took my order asked my address and name, then asked for my phone #, Then said ok as soon as these come in I''ll call ya to let you know the status. The odd thing was she never said anything about payment or price on them. I also said I''ll take 3. As you see in the beginning of this post she gave me her name, along with that her extention. I guess time will tell.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Still wondering on where you guys get a punch control and a drag brake setting.


    Anyone have any idea of how a Wraith 7K or a Novak 380 Mongoose setup would work in the NOW? Would a 380 can fit with the stock motor mount?

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Question for you guys: The stock motor on the Trinity Now has a 3mm shaft and the shaft on a Castle 8000KV is 2mm. Will this cause a problem with the pinion gear or will the pinion gear sit tight once you tighten down the set screw?
    Wondering if it will wobble. I cant find any other brushless motors with a 3mm shaft.

    It will wobble and not work right . You need a 2mm pinion for the Mamba motor .

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    So I have been running the NOW successfully for 4 runs without any problems or breaking parts. Today however when I was running on my street, I noticed the sound of the truck changed, now it is hissing more, and it doesnt have the same sound that used to emminate from it. I checked the suspension, parts, and the spur gear, all look fine (althought the spur gear has a very slight wear on one of the spurs on the gear). THe truck seems to run fine, is there something I a am missing?

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    I don't know about a hissing sound but i kinda wonder if the sound will turn to a clicking sound on hard acceleration. thats what mine was doing now drive gear in rear diff is shot and I'm sitting idle like KRO. I think i love this truggy but i also hate it some times

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    perhaps, if we get a bigger clutch gear (pinon) and or a smaller spur gear, the result from more top end deminishes torq, which i think is our enemy right now. i also think slammming the breaks is another colprate.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Kro -thanks on the 411 about the pinion gear! What does one do to put a Castle 8000KV in the thing? Im assuming it is a direct bolt-on. Where could I come up with a pinion gear that would fit?

    ericke1 - did you order those alum. parts from myhobbydepot? Did you receive them? If so lemme know what you think.

    I like my NOW i just don't think I'd recommend one for the reason, parts avaliblity or lack of. I think there are other trucks out there with many hop ups or factory parts aval. For the price Its a good deal. Brushless, lipo,charger 30mph + out the box. I strongly suggest reading all the posts in this thread before ordering one. Have fun in the Sandbox
