Thumbs up

I know I'm little late on the reply on which is better I've done both electric on road was first ran it for about 5yrs. it was fun then took a 6yr. break from RC racing due to personal reasons right before I stop electric I was able to check out nitro on road racing one day in 2005 I decided to get back into on road racing I thought I would do both electric & nitro once I found my local track only ran on road nitro it was a no brainer so now I run nitro 100% and is the best it's more realistic do to tuning_sound_smoke_smell hearing the gear shifting you can't beat it It's a little messy but it is worth it. I think electric is good when you first start out in RC racing easier to learn glad I had a chance to do both.

No!!! Not neccesarily it comes with a battery holder that houses 4 AA batterys which does the trick... but you will want the RX pack in the long run... but it can wait!!

Just wanted to add this in.

1/10 scale truck either nitro or electric is a great place to start. Less moving parts so you can figure it out pretty easily. If doing nitro, make sure you do have someone who can help you out if at all possible. tuning can be a challenge when you are on your own.

As for the comments about electric versus nitro, I would say that one thing that is starting to level the playing field is the brushless / lipo changes that are happening. With brushless, you cutdown on the maintenance of brushed system which can be a pain if you are not really into it. And now with lipos, you cut down on the amount of battery packs you need to have around as well.

Just read the "20 minute mains" to see info about it. Electric trucks running with nitro trucks for the same amount of time. Very nice. Also, it may work out to be cheaper in the long run though initial up front cost is usually more with electric. But, after buying a few gallons of few, clutch springs, shoes, glow plugs, etc. It becomes interesting to see the cost difference.

This is not saying nitro is bad, or electric is good or whatever, they each offer something different. I have both, and will be running both.

Just to clarify, the xxx-nt rtrII is not the same rear suspension design as the AD2 as some have said. The AD2 (kit) has a different rear suspension geometry and quick change hubs. The RTR II does not. Although it will still hang with the AD2, the AD2 just feels like the rear end is planted more, but it will take quite a bit of driving experience to tell the difference. The RTR II can be changed to the new design for about $100 I do believe. Either choice is a good one.

Also check out the Associated GT2 if you want a gas truck. Personally I like my AD2, but that is just because I own one!

It might take more than that with the graphite front suspension and rear !! The tranny, shocks, ,, basically the whole kit!!!

Then the trinity drake platnum edition motor and exhaust!! to make it authentic

But the RTR is nice when set up right
