to me it seems boring just doin straight aways so im wondering if anyone has done this swap and if it was as good as the drift hpi car. any help would be appreciated thank you
Since you are new to the hobby go with the electric 1st since it is cheaper that way if you decide it's not for you at least you did not have to spend so much & you can always upgrade your motor to go faster in electric.
There is a lot more involved in nitro there is more cost & prep before you can even start drifiting with nitro breaking in your motor
Just for fun go with the electric you can always get a nitro version afterwards if this hobby is for u
