Any way you look at it Nitro can be a pain if you are not good at tuning, humidity and temperatures changes during the day reck havoc on a nitro on a daily basis. You should learn how to properly tune a nitro or go brushless. Nitro engines can be very temperamental due to weather, you can be running a hot plug, "fat" tune on a 15f morning and change it to a cold plug "lean" tune in the afternoon due to a 80f and changed it again if the humidity changes.....
