I guess taxes, taxes and more taxes.

Yea I saw that hazmat charges apply, but I didn't look how much they are.
1:1 car fuel is also very expensive here.
I pay about 60euro to fill my car with 46l diesel.

hazmat charges run about 30 per shipment if i remember correctly. and its a single charge no matter how much you buy. you dont pay 30 a gallon extra, just 30 per shipment. but like i said, dont quote me on the price

and i only pay 22 a gallon for blue thunder at my LHS

If the track you're at has a proper e-class, you will have more than plenty track time.
Wrong, if you read my post I said it was my opinion and I think that nitro is easier to drive. Only at big races that allow triple a-mains on electric will they get close to the track time. Unless you are running pitstops then most electrics will not make 20-30min race.
