NB16

enzo142yk,

From what I've read, the NB16 has different differentials to the Mini Inferno, apparently they are bulkier and look to be stronger.
I have no idea if the Mini Inferno diffs will hold up on the NB16, I guess you can only try it and let us know.

Mondo,

Did your NB16 come with the RX + TX ? Please keep us updated on the good and bad and I'm just waiting to they start showing up again.

Thank You,

the key to a nitro engine is a proper break-in. this requires a few tanks of fuel run thru the car @ little above idle.

That a contentious subjct. I run all nitros in without the idling process - and the NB16 manual stipulates that the engine should not be idled (or bench run) to run it in
They state that it should be run at 1/4 throttle for 2 tanks, 1/3rd for another 2, 3/4.. etc.. with a cool off period between tanks.
This is a little like Traxxas' run in routine for the TRX series engines. The NB16 manual states that it takes approximately 10 tanks to run it in.

Admittedly the Toki 0.5 engine is very stable and well behaved. It's the same make of engine that XRay are using in their Nitro series of Micros, so it is a decent powerplant

Excuse me, I meant Team XRay. The Piwi mini buggy also uses the Toki engines

Hello, new to the forum. I was wondering where to find a NB16. Nitrotek has them in stock but won't ship to the US (even though the website checkout shows they do). Any help would be appreciated!

The NB16 is an ARTR while the Vulcan is a RTR.

Don't you mean the Piktor Miwi? P-iwi. Cute.

If anyone is interested, there is also the Schumacher Rascal. Although that 1/16th scale mini is actually a truck, it does come with a .18 or 3.0cc engine in ARTR or RTR--that's like having a Traxxas engine (or actually a Sirio 3.0 instead of a 2.5) in a 1/16th scale.

Here is a link to a review.

And a photo of the Kyosho Mini-Inferno "nitro" protoype.

Schumacher's new offering doesn't quite fall into the "Micro" class at 16th scale..

The NB16 is RTR, I bought mine RTR although I have replaced the RX and Steering Servo
It was over $100 cheaper than the standard/non hopped up Vulcan offering
They are a little scarce right now, but EBay Sellers should be stocked up in the not too distant future

oooh I think I want that rascal

.18 in a 1/16th truck that uses buggy tires (and super nitro rs4 tires ) sounds good to me!

Hi,

I have been into micro rc's for sometime , and have just got a NB16. It's the first Nitro I have owned so I have a few questions you guy's can hopefully help with.
1. What is the best fuel for running in ?
2. Am i right in thinking that the main needle valve is the one that sticks out of the body, and the idle adjuster is in the end of the carb' slide ?
3.Are the majority of the hop up parts for a mini inferno a straight fit ?
4.Will Mini Infreno Wheels fit ?
5.Best place to buy spares / hop ups ?
6.Has anybody replaced the servos with HS55 's they look very similar in size ?

Cheers for the info already posted . It convinced me to buy one,
