if ur new, i'd seriously take a 2nd look at starting in nitro. long before u invest wads of cash, and more importantly much time, effort, and anguish on learning the hobby on top of dealin with gas.

welcome

So your making nitro seem not even fun?

you invest big wads of cash for electric too, just because you dont like nitro doesnt meant other people cant

I started with nitro and i didnt hae "anguish" it was fun and easy, I bet you havent even owned a nitro

I really appreciate the feedback, I am interested in electric but I am pretty well set on Nitro because I know alot more on pushrod combustion engines than I do about Electronic stuff. I think I am goin to go with a RS4 hpi that a buddy has. I dont know alot about upgrades though so maybe you guys can help me out. What engines are good to upgrade to?
