Act normal... will you ?

You know it is an TM E4, powered with a brushless set and a Lipo battery so you need a lipo charger.
Get onto google en find the stuff.

Well it depends on the mods, therefore the price varies.

If the cars are both lets say 1/8 scales I'm going with Electric. To me with the new batteries and motors it might be more money but it will last alot longer and be faster. It might not sound as cool but I'm ok with that.

With the new motor's and Batteries coming out and more people that switched over to Nitro that are now finding Nitro drivers switching back its a tough pil to swallow. Its all RC its just a preference.

Okay lets get things straight i use to love gas comes when i drove it all smoke would come out and u dont have to put to much money in to make it fast.
But when i got my first electric they were the best no neighbor complaing asbout noise and i can go fast. Oh yea electrics is alot more expensive because if u race u need the best esc and stuff plus u get good batteries its way more.

Nitro guys are the retard jocks from high schoool that think the sound of a weedwacker is cool and realistic. They hung out with their buddies in camaros and Mustangs and jerked each other off all day. Gas guys just give me the creeps of I am back in high school arguing my Street Weapon TC was twice as fast as his GP-10.

I'd agree with this to some point, i have only raced EP and only for about a month. I have spent a few hundred now on upgrades/replacements for my standard rustler, and it goes hella lot faster on the track. IE i mean it jumps and lands much bette, and the handling is really really smooth. Overall speed though, not that much difference.

eh? a standard 4600 nimh battery for $50aus (or less if you know where to get them from, unlike me) that will run you for 25 mins when bashing, so, dunno what your talking about. Race conditions, since im a newb i dont use them peak chargers or anything, i run my 3 battery packs 2 times at least during a day (6 races, not including small practice runs)
