And yes, electric kills Nitro in acceleration and if two-speed trannies were run like Nitros, electrics would kill a Nitro's top end.

BTW, RC Car Action will be hosting a "Fastest R/C Car" competition sometime after September 1st. It will certainly be interesting to see how fast the top car gets.
ding ding ding that's correct

I think he's kidding. This super-non-aerodynamic brick-of-a-car MIGHT hit 40...maybe.
