Default Where'd all the mini nitro vehicles go?

A few years back it seemed like a few niche markets sold a few 1/16 nitro vehicles, which I always found fun to tinker with as a novelty.

Is there any reason that these small nitro cars (and even many 1/10s from even the Chinese retailers) seem to have vanished?

Simple answer is with each passing year, the interest in fuel powered RC declines.

Well that stinks. I always thought that the tiny cars were pretty cool from an engineering perspective, so I hate seeing them go. ☹️

I always wanted one of those Kyosho Mini Nitro Infernos with the Sirio 0.09 engine. But, by the time I got around to getting one they were all gone.
