I am replying u so that u won't think this forum is dead.
Anyways, yur question is a bit hard to answer.
I believe many ppl here got both gas and electric car. And many have different brands of car. They will tell u they like both as each type of car gives different pleasure.
Take time to read other treads and u will know more of their preference.

Default here goes...

Electric -
-dinky little Tamiya stadium truck.. my first RC
-Tamiya TXT with 10.8v and twin 17turns... handles like a four-armed octopus on crack...

newly acquired hyper 7 (not pro)... good fun!

from a newbie perspective, i'm finding the nitro tonnes more interesting at the moment.. the sounds are incredible! and the speed!!! aiieee!!!

hey Huffy don't hop-up your TL-01 man....complete waste of money. I have one TL-01 and thought of upgrading it too, but when i totalled up the cost, I was better off getting a gas car.

Now i am using a v-one R and keeping the TL-01 for drive practice and just for running around chasing cats(hehehe).

Anyway doesn't mean you hop up the TL-01 you can be a good racer with a nice car, but if your driving like shit what for right?.

Don't need expensive stuff to be good. Just know what you need to have that's all

Like me i'm not rich but this sense of building and running stuff has been in me since young so i went into R/C(WAY better than just lazing around at orchard or shopping centres).

Anyway this hobby takes patience don't rush things.... Many S'poreans are like that they want things there and then and once they get it, they regret because there is a better deal out there

hehehe sorry for dragging on and on here but just want to share my thoughts Oh yeah are you a biker? Can tell from your nick
