    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    I purchase the Trinity Now almost a year ago. It ran great for approx 3 days and began to fall apart. The spur gears strip too easy and the rear diff is crap. I tried to buy replacement and upgrade parts for it and was on a 3 or 4 month waiting list. The customer service for trinity was no good either. I ended up purchasing an AE RC18T team kit and put an 8000kv Mamba Brushless set up in it. I have running the RC18T for over 8 months and have not had any problems. I am just upset that I did not purchase the RC18T first.[]

    I cram mine in my rc18, a little velcro on the bottom and custom straps works great!

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    I assume those diff parts are for the nitro Mini Inferno 09ST ? Cause thosee are the ones you want , NOT the electric verision .

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Well, I am putting together my Kyosho diffs. The rear diff pinion on the trinity has a sleve on it that goes into the case bearing. The Kyosho spur gear has no sleeve, a stub connects to the gear and that goes into the bearing and exist the housing. Then on the kyosho you put a cup on that and it takes a dogbone. The shaft on the trinity will screw into the kyosho diff spur but it is way too small to fill the bearing.

    Here is a comparrison between the 2. The one on top is the Trinity.


    Here is what the assembly looks like when the kyosho diff spur is on the trinity shaft. There is nothing for the bearing to ride on.


    How have people gotten around this? Did I miss it in the previous posts?

    Just found out one more thing about the Kyosho gears. They are chrome plated brass. Not steel.

    Damn. The trinity pinion is what keeps stripping.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    You are running your slipper too tight then , its very sensitive too adjustments , 1/16 turn either way and it will be too tight or too loose .

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    I have my slipper set very loose to try and combat this issue. It will slip until the car gets up to about half speed on the street. You can hear it slipping. I am surprised I have not burned it yet.

    The shock of going over small bumps repeatedly while under power still strips the diff spur. I don't drive it on a track that is prepped and I am sure it would be fine in that arena. These just are not meant for backyard drivers I guess.

    I give up. I will keep the motor and battery and put them in another mini. The car is not worth the effort and trinity is worthless for support.

    If anyone wants the kyosho diff parts or a trinity roller drop me a line.

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    You guys still looking for part for you NOW and NEXT?* Go to GoNitroOnline.com. the IRC Vulcan SE and electric counter part, parts interchange with Tirnity Now and Nex.* Parts such as metal diffs.* some part numbers even match.** Example: rear pinion for NEXT TRI32008 (hard to find) is IRC-32008.* The Vulcan is a Buggy and slightly shorter wheel base so center shafts will not work.Keep this thread going..... this is good.* I'm going to try the Kyosho metal diff thing......

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    mine is in parts on the workbench (has been for a long time). I was in the middle of fitting the Kyosho diff's but had to throw it in the corner months ago. Lots of sanding to be done still to get the diffs to spin without binding. Now that the 1/16 erevo is due out it may never get back together.

    Hmmm , when I put the Kyosho diffs in mine they went right in , the pinion gear was the only thing I couldnt use .

    BTW , my NOW is still running great .

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    So it looks like they discontinued the motor mount for the NOW for some reason (probably because it is a flimsy POS) Does anyone have a replacement part number for it or preferably something stronger I could put on in its place?

    RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression

    Well I did email trinity and they said
    You might have to go to the local hobby shop and see if you can retrofit a part from another car. That manufacturer is out of business.

    Awesome. Unless I learn how to fabricate I guess I'm SOL.
