    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    Nitro over works me, plus it's not worth the trouble.

    Electric allows time for me to dust me trophy's every 7 days.

    Back in the day when nitro came onto the scene, they had a huge advantage because fuel v/s nicad was sad, but lipo's took care of that prob.

    nitro over works the people that don't know how to work them.
    lipo only added a hazard to electric for a lot of people that don't read directions and in turn burn their house down.LOL

    LOL, don't forget exploding their truck and melting it to the point of "**** this, just trash the darn thing!", and walk over to the trash can and dump it right in there.

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    I could swear nitro exhaust/ fumes is harmful and causes cancer.

    Maybe that was just a dream I had.

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    Not not really, I don;t believe so. In fact if I'm not mistaken it burns cleaner than gasoline. And, on this forum there are many men (maybe even women, who knows?) that are in their 40's-60's and have been running nitros almost all of their life, and don't they seem to not complain? I'm sorry dude, but in a debate on things, you can't use things that are most unlikely or impossible to happen to try to boost your side. Have you ever seen anyone get cancer from nitro methane? I sure haven't. But, how many people's RC cars and trucks been blown to hell because of a brushless/Li-Po shortage? Many...

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    nitro is toxic. and i'm pretty sure waking up can cause cancer.
    there are many things or dangers rather that could kill us everyday so why don't we all just build ourselves a padded room with filtered air and hire a nutritionist so we can live as long as we can and be bored as hell

    unless you live in a cave where its dark 24/7

    the sun causes cancer
    And according to most products I've seen everything is known to cause cancer in the state of california, or so the warning says on them

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    I'd like to know how many of those 40, 50 and 60 year olds have cancer and just don't know it.

    Lipo's seem to be safe overall and most people probably mishandle them anyway. I don't blame the battery, I blame the handlers.

    The sun does cause cancer and that's why I live in a cave and race at night.

    Not saying nitro does cause cancer, just saying I see no proof that it doesn't.

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    side note the creator of this thread now is ranting and raving in the electric forums that lipos kill, and burn down houses etc...
    wonder how he'll use all those high draw BL systems on NiCds or NiMh's and get the insane speed he claims


    I guess he only wants wind up cars to use...

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    does it really matter if nitro causes cancer?
    i mean take a look around ,the air wee breath has a butt load of impurities in it and one day we won't be able to breath without an oxygen tank strapped to our *****.
    shot i probably have cancer right now and could care less.
    nitro can be deadly if huffing concentrated fumes.
    it attacks the nervous system an causes cerebral hemreging, JK i don't know but i do know it's toxic so don't drink it.

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    People who get hurt from the toxic fumes of nitro is because they don't handle it correctly. They mishandle it because they decide to bend over on the exhaust side of the truck and take in fumes. And about the kid who's complaining about electrics, PRICELESS. But hey, I've got a few electrics and one nitro (Hoping to keep my neighbors nitros) and they're both fun in their own ways. I personally, like nitro more.

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    nitros come out of the box fast take the x-cellarator for instance thats cheap and fast out of the box unlike electrics u have to buy the lipo battery and other stuff to make them faster. not to talk down the electric or nitro but they both have their advantages and disadvantages i know this from first hand experience

    RE: NITROS SUCK BAD!! WOW, REALLY BAD!!!

    Nobody really cares about the dangers associated with hobbies/addictions.....isnt that what makes them hobbies/addictions? Is the smoker concerned with getting cancer? no. What about the heroin addict...is he/she concerned with his/her health? no. Is the 40 yr old weekend softball player worried about pullinga hammy? no.

    Toxic fumes, electrical explosions, loss of property, deterioration of health....all part of the experience.

    Nitro isn't very expensive. 20 bucks a gallon, if you know how to tune an engine, it should last you for quite a bit of time.
