Your build has come along great. Good luck with it.
I had the Nitro version first but i sold it to a friend.
He has also done an electric conversion on my old one.
The Nitro version has only one advantage and the is the fast pit stop for gas.
The electric has little moore drive time but then you have to go in and change the lipo.

The electric version drives the shit out of the Nitro.
Better drive out of the corners and better top speed.
And it is mutch moore easy to drive.

Thanks for the feedback. I too have found the electric to be the much faster setup. Although top speed can be similar, the acceleration is unmatched. We've found that the standard shore ratings used for the GT8 Tires doesn't really apply to the electric setups. With all of the available TQ, it's much easier to overheat the tires.

Im curious to know if you have any lap time comparisons between nitro and electric at your track.

Thanks!

We got the Porsche Bodies in from OFNA, but they all sold out immediately, but we have more on the way next week. There are about 30 of these left and then they will be gone forever. I snapped a picture before sending the last one out....
