Default Nitro Boats

Hello -

I owned a couple of nitro boats a fews years ago but sold them because I got into rc airplanes. I've thought about buying another nitro rc boat, but it looks like Horizon Hobby no longer offers nitro boats on its webiste. I know Tower Hobbies offers nitro boats, but I am curios to know why Horizon Hobby does not. Any thoughts?

Thank you,

Bjfrankl

Default RE: Nitro Boats

i think it has to do to the fact of cost alot of guy s have switched to gas or fast electric nitro is expensife and the cost of glow plugs also they are harder to tune i still have a couple nitro boats but i run my gas boats more a jug of nitro $45-50 plugs are about $ 5.00 each running cost for a weekend for me is about $100.00 with my nitro boats vs $20-$30 with my gas boat
