if you are careful and buy right, you can do either nitro or electric for fairly similiar costs.

do what you want to do.
their are upsides to both sides.

If you run electrics with nitros, the only thing you need to do to make it more competitive is to make sure the electrics weigh the same as an average nitro with a full tank of fuel. The lower weight of the nitros after they use some fuel will compensate a little for the elctrics qucik starts.

Granted, this will only minimize the difference but it should make things a little closer.

Ever since I started using the hakko solder station that task is easy.

i bought the nitro as a used rtr for 400.
it came with everything needed to run. minus the fuel.
and the engine hadnt even been run.. sticker still on the top.
i realize that 1000 is a lot of dough but to get 2 fully working 1/8 scales, im pretty proud of how little i have actually spent





thats not a bad deal although with me i cant handle takeing care of both during race day lol.
