Go to www.internet-rc.com

Check out the vulcan and vulcan SE replacement parts.

They carry all the replacement parts including the spur.

They also have the 2 speed transmission, aluminum shocks, and suspension parts. I already ordered the aluminum tuned pipe.

OOPS. I noticed that after I hit send. I've ordered multiple extras and will post when they arrive to let everyone know the shipping situation and the quality. Hopefully, the spur gear will get here in time for racing this Saturday.

Improvements

Yesterday I managed to install a Hitec HS81MG servo into the NB16.
The NB16 still retains the standard rear (left) servo mount with a PCB post being used on the front (right). It's a tight squeeze and doesn't look overly brilliant but it works! I did have to drill and countersink the chassis too.
Another thing I had to do was make a new exhaust retainer, this was done using 2mm threaded stock bar.
It hasn't been tested with the HS81 as I am awaiting an alloy Mini Inferno steering kit. Once I've fitted the steering upgrade I'll let you know how it works out

Progress..........

The Mini Inferno alloy steering slider kit arrived today
To install this part I removed the entire front bulkhead which was easy: 4 screws and loosen the gearbox screws a little. The diff gears are plastic, they look solid as they're large. (see photo)

Fitting the Mini Inferno steering slider was not as simple as I had expected. The NB16's front bulkhead (obviously) has different dimensions to that of the Mini Inferno, so the steering slider sits too low and catches on the bulkhead!
Not to be outdone I inverted the flange bearings and shimmed the steering slider bar up with stainless steel washers. This worked a treat but it's only temporary until I can get an Acme alloy steering assembly.

As for the steering, well there's still a little slop in it but the steering repsonse with the HS81MG fitted is awesome.
My usable EPA range has gone up from 60% to 80%, so that's a whopping 25% more turn!



I'll be testing the new configuration out over the weekend. Hopefuly some of the HK resellers will stock NB16 hop ups so I can get a proper NB16 alloy steering assembly hop up.

enzo142yk,

Welcome to YourMicro.com Glad to have you onboard!
The NB16 came and went as far as EBay sales are concerned. I saw it listed on a Saturday night and bought it from Stella, a HK based reseller. After a few days Stella had no stock, another HK Seller also had some but his Ebay store insn't listend them any more either.
The Vulcan is the same thing, just overpriced. The UK shop that sells them in Nitrotek, the UK Acme distributor and direct seller - a little like Internet RC. I am sure that they will appear back on Ebay soon.
