Welcome to my Blog

Welcome, everyone, to my new blog for RC Car Action. For those of you who are not familiar with me, here is a little background. I have been in the hobby since 1980 and was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Trinity Products Inc. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and moved my business to New Jersey in 1980. I am a college graduate and majored and have a B.A. in philosophy. My dad died when I was 11 and it was just my mom and I. I guess you could call me the “true American success story” (In 1989, Trinity was the #74 fastest growing private company in the Unites States) when that sort of thing was popular in this country (pre-Obama). Among other things, I was responsible for the “first re-buildable stock motor,” importation of Panasonic NiMH batteries into the USA, and giving drivers “real paying contracts.” I am a single Dad raising my three children (Juliana, 6; Angelina, 13; and Nicholas, 14) on my own in Orlando, FL. We relocated our business a few years back, but continue to sell Trinity motors, batteries and accessories. I have been known as controversial and somewhat of a “maverick.” Some people love that and a lot hate that :-) But I am not afraid to say what I think and I am hoping that the blog about current day RC topics will be entertaining to all of you. I would love your feedback and ideas on what topics you would like to discuss (eprovetti@teamtrinity.com). Looking forward to seeing you online and at the races.

    I’d really like to see a tech article on the alternate uses for lightweight nylon pinion gears. And if could dig up and post a few of the old “Somebody’s Got To Eat It” newsletters that would be great. Just for reference, yeahhh. That would be great. Welcome Ernie!
