actually, I can see a difference in the demographic between electric (on road) racers and nitro racers. Maybe its because the onroad track I go to is a very nice one, and we get lots of top guys, but most of the elctric racers seem to keep to themselves more. Where I race offroad they're much more chatty and willing to help.

I agree that on-roaders are more secretive. Off-roaders are more willing to help a newb. As far as a what an off-roader looks like, its probably a cross between a construction worker and a construction worker! LOL!

One of our local drivers has been around nitro and vht tracks most of his life and has now developed an extra trigger finger for redundant racing, a 3rd hand that extends so he can do his own refills and an extra set of eyes for full 360 degree vision

his on this forum and goes by the name of kickass

lol

Alex this is for you mate

I run/race electric on and off and nitro on and off road and when you get down to it, they are all the same...electric guys just go home cleaner and its easier to hide the fact that you have been rc racing from broads...

Well, going off your name (ukemokid), I get the impression you're a emo guy...and while the music doesnt bother me so much, the state of mind does...

I wish my lawn was emo, then it would cut itself...
