Default Turnigy Nitro Rumble 1/8th 4wd Nitro Racing Buggy

See HK is now selling 1/8 Nitro Buggy's

Introducing our latest 1/8th scale offroad nitro rocket - The Nitro Rumble!

From the powerful .21 cu pull start nitro motor - breathing through a polished alloy tuned pipe to extract every last ounce of grunt - through to the oversized 16mm adjustable oil filled dampers this buggy means business!!

The Solid aluminium 3mm thick chassis with a width of only 129mm, features a centralized design layout to provide a quicker steering response and is far more balanced than offset designs. The new lightweight ultra-compact gear box and 3 differential driveline enhance this with a low center of gravity. All gears are metal for durability.

The Shock towers are 4mm alloy for strength and 'bash' resistance. The suspension is multi adjustable for caster, camber, roll center and bump steer - enough to satisfy any budding racer.

Supplied pre-built and with the servos pre-installed, simply add your own 2-3 channel receiver, apply the decals, fuel up and go!

• 3 diff. shaft drive 4WD
• 3mm main chassis
• 4mm F/R Alum. shock tower
• High-torque steering servo with metal gear

Never heard anything about this buggy?

But rumor is Hara has signed a one race deal to run this buggy, and kick everyone's #ss with it. That should boost sales, and put this buggy on the map.
A bad day racing is still better than none at all.

I would love to see Hara run this buggy. Honestly it looks pretty nice and hop ups are available for it too. I think my curiousity will get the best of me and have to get one and try it on the track!
