Turnigy HobbyKing 1/16 Buggy, Mini-Review & Video

Got this buggy with a 1600mah Lipo the other day for $93 shipped from HobbyKing's USA warehouse. Its pretty sweet, its a lot better in grass than I thought it would be. The buggy does well in most grass but if the grass is higher than about 7 or 8 inches then it will probably get stuck.

The one big problem with these buggies is the spur gear strips very easily (mine striped on its 3rd outing). But spare spur gears are very cheap from HobbyKing so just make sure you stock up.

Overall, I highly recommend this buggy.

Here's a couple of videos of it in action.

Looks fun! Check the gear mesh if you keep stripping spur gears, sounds like it needs adjusting.

If you need parts and don't want to wait, most of the parts from the Kyosho Mini-Inferno will fit this buggy(and the Turnigy Monster Beetle).
