Default EP vs GP

I am picking up RC again and I am undecided whether I should go for GP or EP after all. IMO, GP is faster, longer run time and less expensive. EP is, on the other hand, much cleaner.

My choice for GP will be MTX3 and EP will be MR4TC SD.

Any suggestion?

Thx

If Yok aint coming up with SD, my choice will be the MTX3 no question. SD is a very attractivly designed car.

BTW may I ask why you like EP over GP?

If you are going electric racing, dont just limit yourself with Yok, try something like a Barracuda R2, or an EVO 3, although I have not heard any good things about the evo3 yet.
I dont know what its like getting yok parts where you are, but up here its next to impossible.
Get a car that its easy to get parts for.
Oh, and if you go nitro, the MTX3 is a great choice.

The things I like about elec, is clean, plug and play and cool shiny stuff, stays shiny and cool instead of being covered in goo.

Nitro, longer mains, good sound, less specialized tools, (ie, good charger/discharger, brush cutter, comm cutter etc) and around here there are more nitro guys than elec, and I like big fields of competition.

hope this helps
Nate

Personally, I like electric the most, I've never been attracted to gas.

However, the weather around here aint the best, so indoor driving is a must.
