Default Nitro or Electric X2crt

Just picked up a X2 crt roller of here and im facing a dilema Electric or Nitro The intial cost will be very close for both nitro and electric. I had electric before ( hobbywing but it was very very slow and idk I hated it didnt even go good in my sc-10) I heard batteries only last 12-20 mins and that my main problem. I can't see spending that much and only lasting that long While I could go nitro and just keep refueling. I had nitro before and it was moslty a pain. Idk what to do Im looking for real awnsers not "Electric sucks/Nitro Sucks/My electric is faster" I want to know the pros and cons of each. Thanks Guys!!

well my opinion is that you will be, more satify running nitro than electric .
when is the last time you ran nitro, cause the engines out now are supposed to be more easier to tune.


if you want to mess with lipo batterys, thats what most guys use in thier electrics and they have long run times .

a decent race engine is easy to tune and all. i have an STS and its easy to tune but an jammin JPX 21 is even easier, those things fly, to much power IMO but i ran it on a Jammin X2 CRT for a while now its going in my buggy. if you get a half way decent race engine i think it would be way better.

however electric is cheaper in the long run, no buying fuel ever week. but i have seen to many problems with something burning up and ruiining everything. if your racing make sure you can even run them. i think electric is cheating in quals but the main i dont care because they wont make it the whole time before a battery swap or just run out of juice.
