Nitro could not spool up enough energy to clear the jump. People who I know I would consider very good at tuning could not get up and over. Now, if there were a berm in the turn, I feel it could happen. The berm would have to put you centered (lined up) IF so, then you could carry you speed.

I actually could just turn the corner casually and 1/2 throttle it. No need to full throttle it.

I actually tried full throttle once. I landed in the middle of the following turn after the Tripple. Any higher and I would have gone over the big berm turn..

Well, What do you guys think????

NITRO VS ELECTRIC CONVERSATION?? I'LL START IT..
Oh Oh, here it comes........



My two cents after running for the 3rd time in the last few days: I definitely am enjoying the electric. Lots of fun, minimum hassle. This is exactly what I needed, or else I would probably have been out of the hobby again.

But, nitro or electric, top of the line or bottom, as long as you can have fun and get together with some others to have some fun, it's all good.

Having said that, my vorza kicks butt lol.

Talking Fun Factor

Yes I 1 million percent agree with the fun aspect and the social aspect.

Getting together with a bunch of friends and having a blast is the thnig.

Not to mention when my electric runs out of juice, the nitro guys just put another squirt of go go juice in the car an keep going..

It's all good.


(And I agree about blowing the doors off a nitro guy with my electric)


Well, I will say this, I did get my doors blown off by a guy running a
Nitro with a new Werks B6 engine. I was impressed.

(didn't have the 2650 in though. I wasn't also running a 5 cell either. That think is stupid fast)

Just remember. Keep a bucket of Nitro next to you. If the batteries start acting stupid, drop them in the bucket.

(You might want to consider running.. Running fast... Running scared..)
