How old are you? I am assuming because you asked which one is faster that you have no experience with racing level vehicles. I know this is going to sound harsh and people will probably jump on me for this, but if you ask this type of question I have two responses. One, nitro probably is not for you because you have never tried to tune an engine and two this probably is not the vehicle to start with in rc. It's a great car in both versions, but I honestly think sometimes things should have skill levels like they used to have with model rockets. Blast away at me. This should probably move to the rookie thread.

i still find ep buggy , no matter how fast or cheaper they claim to be (and as you see they are not a lot faster) just plain boring. added to that there's no "team spirit" (between your pitcrew and you for instance). in ep you are alaone on your stand whereas in nitro every race is a teamwork

Ok, here is the answer to your question. Electric in the winter and nitro in the summer..... Buy both...

If your looking at ease of matience and not worry about tuning engines and clutches fuel and cleaning and gettting better at driving . Than get the electric version of RC8.2E and run with the nitro buggys and if you win take a look at thier face afterwords
Ain't that the truth.

We don't wrench more on nitro no more than electric guys do. What they don't tell you is how much more electric cars harder on drivetrain and tires.
