Yeah, but the only problem with that is, nitro has the samesame thing going on with a new motors that are faster and hotter than the preivious one. For example: the werks/ collari, then the megapicco, and the new o.s. I know cause I use to run nitro.

Aw, come on, all the engines you listed can't hold a candle to a 2 year old Novarossi NS12S3.

Look at it this way. A Nitro TC has a useful lifespan of approx.3 years, that's the rythm in which the major companies release new cars. Not every 6-8 month like Tamiya and XRay.

Foam tires have been the same since I started running nitro in 1999 and they only got cheaper.

Now compare that to what you have to do to stay up to date in electric TC.....

This is where the ROAR rule of submitting cells once a year makes sense. Anyone who is trying to be compeditive buys new cells every year anyways.
