Default 1/16-nitro buggies information needed please.

Who all makes the 1/16-nitro buggies now and if you can please include links where they are sold in the US and the manufactures web site. Please give my your opinions on the pros and cons of each brand. I am far from new to nitro just would like to add a 1/16 nitro buggy to the collection if they are worth it.
Thanks.

I have the XRay NT18T and find it to be a wonderful car. Beautifully made, great instructions (it comes as a kit in small, labeled bags), runs beautifully. Very strong engine with great torque and top end. Parts are a bit expensive, as is the kit, and somewhat hard to find. I usually buy from rcamerica.com, and they have the full kit as well. I don't have any experience with the other 1/16 nitro cars, so can't make a comparison. If you have further questions, send me a PM and I'll be glad to answer.

Default RE: 1/16-nitro buggies information needed please.

First I want to thank all for the replies! I have read about some problems with the Vulcan do any of you own one and have you had any real problems? Right now I am just going to play unless they start a class for them at my local track. I have a Mini Inferno but I am more of a fuel person unless it is my F1 Mini-Z’s on my RCP track when the weather is bad out side. Does any one have any information on the Kyosho 1/16 fuel that is coming out or did I hear wrong?
Thanks again for all the input.

i also am a gas person. the vulcan is crappy. good made but the engine has got to go. getting the damn thing to run more than 2-3 minutes is the main challenge. i was thinking maybe we could strap a jp mod'd v-spec on it. then it'd be cool like my 1/8.

the xray i have no personal experience with but it is supposed to be a good kit and run well. also kyosho is coming out with their nitro version with the serio .09 should be killer.

After looking at this I might have to wait till the Kyosho comes out!

It looks really nice, just wonder what it is going to cost.
