This is the reason why I hate it when people ask me how fast my car goes or Which is faster Electric or Nitro.
The answer, "They can go as fast as your wallet."
Nitro or Electric, just depends on what kinda time, parts and ideas you can instill into your vehicle as well finding an area to run it is probably another battle.
But yeah ive seen some quick cars and im sure well continue to see them achieve faster and faster times back and forth. Really all depends on the builder ability not the ability of the powerplant.
