Electric compared to nitro is one thing, but electric to a gasser? Doesnt compare. The argument about electric has always been reliability and speed and I have to give it that. Its very reliable but speed is what you make it. Electric is charge and go. But a gasser is basically pull 3-5 times and go. Then fill up, pull 1-2 times and go, then fill up again, pull 1-2 times and go. And after your receiver battery dies after 9 hours of continues playing, its time to put it away.
Then there's the speed. I've had gassers in the triple digits for more than 4 years now and brushless large scale is just making its way into it. And I have a gasser that will give any large scale electric and a lot of smaller scale electrics a run for their money.
BTW, that LOSI is sick. I've always loved the losi, just havent been in love with the price but after seeing that one, I might have a fathers day for my self in mind.
