Trinity Spyder Monster Truck

Here’s a close-up Trinity’s all-new nitro-powered Spyder monster truck. The big-block RTR features a .256 cubic-inch engine and comes with an aluminum tuned pipe, has an eight shock suspension, two-speed tranny with reverse, factory-painted body, dual-disc brakes and a shaft starting system. The drivetrain is mounted in a very narrow ladder-style chassis and the center-mounted engine is very low in the chassis to lower the center of gravity for improved handling. A big 170cc fuel tank provides long run times between refills, and on-the-fly fueling via the quick-fill cap means you can run as long as you have fuel. The Spyder fits engines with typical big-block dimensions, so pyscho upgrades like the Sirio .27 engine push speeds from fast to insane. Click Here for more pictures and information.

Features: • full bearings • 8 aluminum shocks • ladder-style chassis • aluminum tuned pipe • 2-speed transmission with reverse •.256 engine • Pivot ball/hingepin hybrid suspension • High-torque steering servo • Shaft starting system with included starter unit • Includes rechargeable glow-starter with wall charger and fuel bottle • Factory-finished body

Associated, Reedy Sweep the US Indoor Champs

After a controversial finish, Team Associated factory driver and top qualifier Jon Orr picked up the win in the highly competitive 1/12-scale mod class at the US Indoor Champs with his Reedy-powered RC10L3. Veteran on-road driver and Team Associated factory pilot Mike Blackstock followed suit by taking the TQ honors and crossing the line first in the Touring Mod Class with his Reedy-powered TC3. Blackstock had to battle with some of the most talented drivers in the world to gain the title as US Indoor Champ, but Orr got a great start and never looked back until the last couple of second of the race where he discovered that David Spashett’s Peak Powered CEFX 12 was right on his tail and getting ready to pass him by at the finish. Although it looked like Spashett’s car was in front at the finish, the timing computer had Orr ahead by 6/100 of a second—now that’s close racing. Click here for the winners’ chart, and catch the complete story in the March issue of RC Car Action.
