Looks like it uses touring car wheels and tires. Could put some HPI Rally tires on it and go get it dirty.

A 0.05 engine just wouldn't do it for me. At least have a .10 engine.

It's not really the first. HPI had a Nitro Micro RS4 with a .12 in it a while back. It's still on there site in the discontinued section.

XRAY also has the Nitro M18 now too.

Strangly they too claim to have the first "Micro Nitro" when the prize belongs to HPI for the Nitro Micro RS4. Man, companies are so lazy they can't even do a little research for themselves anymore! That's just sad.

Technically a micro is 1/18-1/16 and a mini is 1/12. The HPI car you're thinking of is 1/12 so it would be a mini. Those cars were alot of fun. A guy at a lhs here has a OS 18TZ in one and it's uncontrollable.

How can you call the CRC Carpet Knife's and Trinity Reflex's a mini? They are oval racers, not mini's. What about the Mini-Z?

Last time a checked a Carpet knife is not a oval racer; 1/12th onroad pan car. They are all called 1/12 scales. But Xray and Yok along with HPI (car you were refering to), Tamiya, and Xpress all make 1/12 touring cars AKA mini; don't believe me check a TCS entry form and it's call MINI CLASS. I'm just saying micro are all 1/18th. SO they are technically right saying they are the first with a micro nitro on road car.

Which one? I saw the MIWI before I say the Nitro M18, but I can't be sure which one came out first.

It's gonna be Xray. More than likely they will have it mass produced long before the other company and Xray is a much bigger well know company. Besides if you want to get technical many people have been making garrage built nitro micros long before either of these.
