at one time.. none of us did either..

if you get a mod.. more than likely you will have to get a new speedo.. they are limited on turns.. most rtr's can only handle a 19 turn.. but there are some silly fast 19turn motors out there

out of those two .. the novak would be my choice.. remember.. you won't be able to run a low turn mod with that.. this 19T will do you fine though.. I'll have pics in an hour.. I have to go somewhere.. then I'll take a pic of it.. it's a great motor.. you'll like it..

to me i like them both..i like electric that the motors are pretty cheap to play around with and change out different motors..electric isnt very high maintance for just bashing like i do..i have nitro trucks as well as electric..nitro cars are great also because of the speed and sound and smoke and everything..and i also like nitro because i like wrenching on my cars..runtime i gotta give that to nitro for sure..take off speed i would give that to electric because its pretty much instant when you smash the throttle..so i guess what im saying here is buy both thats the only way to go..i like them both the same i have just as much a good time with electric as i do nitro..cant go wrong with ethier to me..
