I am trying to rebuild my old Trinity EV10SS, it has SERIOUS sentimental value to me. Everything on it is perfect, except for the front end. The last race I was in, some 12yold thought he would play bumpercars since he was apparently bored and I ended up in the wall. The kid was admonished, but the front end was trashed. I got out of racing before I could replace it and now it's impossible to find a bolt on Reactive Camber System (what it was called at the time) for it. Does anyone know of either a set laying around in some store, or better yet, a newer front end kit that is completely compatable, maybe something from IRS. For sentimental reasons, I'd rather race my old car, so every little bit of advice would help.

Thank you in advance.

The ev10ss can use the same front lower arms that are on the switchblade, revolver, and reflex10ss chassis. A friend of mine still occasionally races his on a local flat track. He runs the switchblade front suspension and put VCS shocks in the rear. The car handles pretty good.

Jorge M (outsider6) from ORC might have some of those parts. I know he has one whole car laying around like brand new.

Thank you!!! Basically I need an entire front end assembly, the tie rods, end caps and the plate for the SS, the only good parts are the axle/steering blocks.

There's only one EV part I want out of your basement and I believe it has a purple and white body on it! :thumbsup:

Ah yes, Joel Johnson's infamous EV10 Nats car. I want to restore it and send it to him...It would look good in his office.

When I say I have boxes of EV10 parts, I mean BOXES. I probably have enough new and used parts to build 10-12 entire cars and still have boxes of parts left over. Get in touch with me and I'll make the stuff disappear...:thumbsup:

How cheap? I need the front end plate, tie rods*, ball caps* & ball end screws (*these include what I need for steering servo too) and I would like to buy extras of the tie rods and ball caps and such. The axles are actually intact, the plate broke and the rods/caps bent. You can email me directly with prices and either I can use paypal (if you have an account) or call you when I am home on a lunch break. (can't call LD from work, lol) You also wouldn't happen to have the old Trinity Oval style decal sheet, would you?

Thanks to everyone who pitched in their 2 cents, I tried to find parts for this car 2 years ago and came up with nothing, now I have several leads to follow as my pocketbook will allow.

Live fast, drive hard!
