Don't let it's small size fool you. The 1/16th Turnigy Nitro-T Truggy is a serious little racer!
We've started with a buggy platform, beefed it up, added bigger wheels/tires making it even better with a .07 engine! The Turnigy 1/16 4wd Nitro-T Truggy now offers more power and a higher top speed, just what you need to satisfy your power hungry appetite!
Starting with a Japanese made pull start .07 ci nitro engine, tuned pipe, shaft driven four wheel drive - with steel prop shafts and disk brake, this little buggy ticks all the boxes. It has a great range of adjustability out of the box, such as: adjustable upper control arms, shock position, shock pre-load, rear suspension roll center, adjustable down stops and front/rear sway bars.
A quick look over the images will demonstrate the inbuilt durability and over-engineered components such as the suspension arms, shock mounts and bulkheads. It's built more like a 1/10 scale racer than a 1/16th!
This Turnigy Nitro-T Truggy arrives as ARR version, completely built with the high torque steering and throttle servos installed and all linkages pre-adjusted. Just add your receiver, 4 AAA batteries, Fuel, a glow plug driver and your ready to rock!

Wow what a great little truggy! Only run two tanks of fuel through so far but crikey what a ripper set up. Might not be well suited to proper racing, but for ripping up your local park or front yard with a mini screamin machine, you cant go wrong. I got it on sale of course, so great value for the money in my case. Maybe not worth full whack, so I reckon wait for a special if your coin is tight.
looks great, pretty quick full tilt, easy to tune and of course, Cheap fun!
not super strong and as it is quite quick, light and nimble, its enough to have some fairly decent stacks over pretty tame grounds. Receiver space is on the tight size too, even for a micro receiver.
No one way bearing problems on this one, its easy to start and with some minor tuning, it's running spot on. Fuel tank is on the small side, but ths just makes for regular well timed pitstops for a bevvie!
9/10 for fun timesCan't give it 5 star just yet, but for the price, it's a great little car. Servo settings seem just right out of the box, started right up and idled within the 3rd pull of the starter, ran 3 tanks idling without a hiccup.
Only 2 thing I wish, 1 I wish it had a 2 speed gear box (which is available aftermarket) and 2 it needs a larger fuel tank, only about 8-10 minutes idling emptied the tankUpdate. Had steering servo strip gears and fail. Installed a Hitec metal geared servo and it has worked out great. Been beating this thing up at the local coarse for over a month now and it has performed great. Love running this truggy. Had its teething problems but once solved this truggy has been rock solid. Fun little machine.Very fun 1/16th truggy! Running this will put a smile on your face. I would not recommend this to a first timer due to the following problems I had. First, the clutch springs broke during break in. Have new springs coming from International WH but could not wait so I fabricated springs out of .80mm piano wire. They work great with several runs w/o a problem. Second, the one way bearing on pull starter failed,(after many, many, many pulls) but I managed to find new bearings online. Again, could not wait, so fixed bearing and got truggy back up and going. Have several runs with the fixes I made and truggy runs very well. Worth the $100 price. Easy to work on. Would buy againDon't bother with this.The buggy itself seems good but the engine is full of problems.
Hard to start and the pullstarter mechanism is of poor quality.There is a one way bearing that will pack up after just a few starts.I bought 4 of them as Christmas presents and now I have 4 useless buggys sitting on the workbench.Is my own fault/should have done a bit more research before purchasing.The one way bearing is available to buy(when in stock) but I quess it will pack up again.something to do with the pullstarter shaft not sitting straight when engaging the bearing.u are warned!!!!
