Cons of nitro....
-can't be driven indoors. Where I live there is snow on the ground 4 months of the year, and it's cold 7 months of the year.
-all that after-run cleaning and maintenance is a hassle.
Pros of electric....
-quiet, neighbours will thank you
-cheaper to maintain
-possible to drive all year round (indoors and outdoors)
-in my area there are fewer on road nitro races, so an electric drift vehicle can easily be converted to a racer and raced more frequently.
