Nitro or electric?

I'm a huge fan of the Losi 8ight 2.0, and converted mine to electric using the Tekno kit. The car is stupid fast, and handles great!

I do not know much about all the brands but i can tell you that between a Losi and an RC8 i would go with the Losi- Losi's tend to be easier to drive, like all AE products, the stock setup has a ton of oversteer. Im not saying the Losi is better, just easier to drive for me. The AE is quite a bit cheaper and the parts for it do not hit your wallet as hard. The Durango and the JQ also seem to be very solid vehicles but I see alot of people selling their JQ and nobody ever sells a Durango on here if that tells you anything.

I suggest finding the right thread to ask this question because this isn't it..
