    Carpet Knife 3.2 vs Trinity Reflex

    Hi

    I am thinking about getting one of these 12 scale beasts. I really like the look of the Bloody Knife. The Trinity Reflex I can't find out much about ... pics etc.

    Has anyone got some good advice??

    Cheers
    Scott

    I'd say the calandra, because parts are easier to get for it (PM me if you want to know where!). The bloody knife also looks great with all the red bits!

    I'd put in a vote for the Reflex. Mine is very good, and very strong. It has to be built for UK tracks and additive (not quite as per instructions) and there are plenty of us to tell you how.

    It's big advantage is the excellent rear pod, thick chassis, and ease of driving. Being honest, the front end is not as easy to set as an Associated, and it is sensitive to set-up (the advantage there being it is easy to tune to a track!) The car is low, and so suits the new vogue for low shells, and it is simple, so limiting the number of parts you need to have.

    I don't have any trouble getting parts, but they have to be ordered from your LHS. Go to the Trininty web-site for pics, etc.

    A Trininty is the well known typing-error model. This model comes equipped with damper tunes and uses a T-bra design!! ;D
