  • Super Kart F1 Bridgestone

    I can pick up 3 of these for my routed track, at a pretty good price. However, my previous experience with Ninco F1 cars isn't very good. The tires are hard and not true, the wheels turn on the axle, the guide has far too much play and the steerable front wheel linkage comes off very easily. I could only find one other reference to these karts when I did a search and it wasn't very informative. Does anyone have any input?

    The Ninco Karts (like most anything) do need a bit of work, but, once tuned, they run well and are lots of fun.

    If you can get them at a good price, you have nothing to lose,....if you are in the market for some really great running (and highly durable)Karts', look at the ones from NonnoSlot.

    Cheers

    PS Like the Ninco F1 cars, it is a good idea to separate the guide from the steering front wheels, and glue the front suspension,.....and carry out all the regular tuning steps.

      I just received two of the Nonno karts and really like the workmanship. I'm looking forward to running them in the near future once my track is finished. In the meantime......

        You can’t beat the scale detail of the Ninco karts.
        Urethane tires and loosen the screw that goes into the driver’s butt.
        I’m searching for the red 4:1 gear sets.

            Thanks for the responses. Those Nonno karts are outstanding quality, but the scale 1/18 and one of them costs as much as I can get 3 Ninco karts for. I'm still thinking about it.

              Both the Ninco and the Nonno Slot karts are 1/18th scale,...so no size difference.

                  One thing to note is that the Ninco Karts have what is really an HO motor, and as such, they are dead slow on a decent sized track at 12volts.

                    That is true about the speed. But if you have a variable power supply you can crank it up and get a little more speed......

                    Cranking voltage up to 14.6 helped on my smallish track.
                    Curious how much voltage they can reliably run at.

                  Thanks for all the responses. I think I'm going to pass on this kind of vehicle for now.
