I love it because its like racing the real racing thing. better yet, you don't get hurt.... your pockets do get hurt at times... hehe.. anyway, it allows me to experience racing first hand. I can feel the RUSH, the pressure, and the Energy. I love the hour long mains. It really tests the endurance of a person. ok... your turn? hehehe

you spend much only at the beginning and after it, everything seems to go through smoothly. Engines dont get to be changed often and you only need to tune it sometimes (OS engines). Its realistic with its sounds and smoke and its the perfect "toy" for the speed junkie who doesnt have enough dough for the real thing. Its pretty much safe coz when it crashes you dont crash yourself with it except your heartrate might be going faster at this time.

There's nothing like coming off a corner in a slight drift and hitting second gear. Fuel engines do a lot more for me than electric motors.

Default Why Nitro?

1) Obviously the fact that there is a piston motor and a drive train/clutch/gear box carries the essence of motor racing. Chassis set up, tires and tinkering complete the pit rituals

2) Competitiion - I like the pressure of multiple competitors and the need for a strategy to even get off the starting line. This puts the focus on the driver, not the car and the need to finish; to finish first.

3) Midweek tinkering - something to do midweek - the anticipation of new parts coming in and the ever present "tweak of the week"

4) The total zone out - where everything at work and home disappears at the track when you pull up and greet your racing buddies and overhear a car on the back straight.... wondering if you brought all your stuff to the track.

5) Finally, this forum and others that fill voids in life to seriously contemplate why we do what we do.

Man you hit it right on the head. The biggest 2 for me are the speed and the noise, there is nothing that sounds as good as a tourer or 1/8th down the back striaght full tilt.

The competition is awesome, if you get everything right. One thing out of whack and it can definatly mean laps not seconds.
