Kyosho Mini Inferno
I missed this one because I’ve been overly excited about E3 (Sony had a couple nice surprises at their keynote today, if you missed it head to GameTrailers for the replay). Sorry about that. Anywho, Kyosho has a new 1/18 scale 4wd Buggy in the Mini Inferno. The Mini Inferno is a scaled down version of it’s bigger brother, the 1/8 scale Inferno and is said to match it in performance and quality. It’s got a shaft driven drive train with three differentials, a slipper clutch, and a full set of ball-bearings. It’s also fully RTR with a Perfex KT-6 transmitter and full size radio gear installed.
One thing that stands out on the Mini Inferno is that it includes a special battery box for the car that allows you to use full size unassembled AA batteries, instead of the much more common 2/3A size packs. Most full size AA NiMHs offer nearly double the capacity of 2/3As.
