I will take some pics in just a few.. I dont think it needs to be any faster honestly. its pretty damn fast.. It keeps up with my Brushless LST2

Thats great too hear ! Mine should be here tomorrow !:D

I will post how it stacks up against my brushless RC18T [X(]

Probably wont be as fast (8000Kv in the RC18T) but I will bet it out handles/jumps it .....

What color was yours ? So far the only one I have seen was silver and looked nothing like the pic Tower has ......

I have a few 2s Lipo's , and a couple of 3s LiPo's . Its almost undriveable with the 3s 11.1v in there .


With the 2s LiPo's its great on and off road .


Will probably look at getting a 4s 14v Lipo for the NOW though :D

RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression
 
It looks like it comes with Tamiaya connectors , I would change them too Deans plugs anyway .

It looks like a variety of batteries will fit in the NOW so your choices arent as limited .

hey i got mine today and it is scary fast!for real you dont need anny upgrade or bigger motor.its just nuts out of the box.i am having some glitching probems and i dont know what is causing it.i switched out the reciever so i can use my mini lst2 2.4ghz system for more reliability,its way to fast for AM controll.what i think happened is the lipo girked out and it started glitching.i am trying to reset the mamba controller to the new radio sytem and it is not easy for a beginner.alot of beeps and sounds.but yea,get one,its worth it.

RE: Trinity Now 1st Impression
 
o yea and for some reason the front left shock is completely devoid of oil and the other 3 are nice and damped.i duno.oand i got no users manual so if something breaks i guess im screwed.and i am having problems adjusting the slipper clutch,it has so much power that i cant tell if it is slipping or not.
