well the nitro powerband feels diffrent to me it seems like you can get more corner speed with a elecric powerband.

not sure about a 2wd nitro buggy but i did race 2wd nitro truck and i think it makes you get used to the nitro powerband.

i guess a 2wd nitro buggy can get you used to driving a 1/8 buggy maybe.

i liked gas truck better than a 2wd mod electric truck.

you could drive them a bit harder but you still had to be smooth.

Well of course a nitro powerband is different.

Corner speed has nothing to do with whether you have an electric or nitro car. You need to avoid scrubbing speed in a turn regardless of what type of vehicle you are driving. If you are having a tough time maintaining corner speed with nitro, you need to focus more on it. The fast guys are not beating you on the straight.

Oh btw, smooth throttle inputs improve fuel mileage a lot.

2wd mod buggy. Hardest to drive, period.

I hear sedan and 1/12 scal help with corner speed. Don't know if it is true, waiting for the carpet track to be ready.
