Electric is faster all around. Accelerations and Top Speed. Nitro lack torque, and high RPM when compared to electric motors.

The evil in electric is that batteries were limited. Today, you can cram a 6000mah battery into car and that is way more than you willl ever need for 8-min of racing. LiPO's are just starting to find out how much capacity will be available. Expect the capacity of the lipo "Brick" packs to Jump 500 every 3 months. 5000 today, 5500 by April, 6000 by August, 7000 by New Years day.

Some perdict the limits of the LiPo's to be 2x 3x greater than what we have today. Others are predicting 10X increase in capacity.
