Why did this kid have to bring back a 4 month old thread when every1 knows all this topic does is cause flame wars between nitro and electric guys on which is better?

I have an electric now with a ton of money in it simply because i have a Mamba Max Brushless System. I was able to find the 7700 in stock at a local hobby shop so i went for it. A lot of people will argue that electrics can be just as good if not better in most casses than nitro. For myself i would love to get into nitro but with my brushless it's zero maintaince. so you can't beat that. Plus it wuld cost too much now to get running in nitro. with all the money i have in electric it would be a waste to drop it and go nitro. ELECTRIC GETS MY VOTE!!!!!

A lot of people would also argue that maintainance is part of the hobby/part of the fun. Again just a matter of opinion and personal preferences.

I agree with Ryan.... I enjoy working on them as much as I do racing/bashing.

Yes, but just because the motor requires no matienence doesn't mean the rest of the car doesn't.

Working on a motor/engine/main source of mechanical power is not the same as working on the car itself. .....

Working on the car in general is a lot of fun and i always find myself looking for new part, hop-ups, and dress up parts but to have a brushless set up, = alot less stress. I usto have a hell of a time with my brushed motors. I run the car so much that i was changing brushes all the time. Some of you may think that maybe they were crappy brushes but they weren't. I just love rc... hahahahaha

I have a Losi Muggy, I've noticed the break-in process to be a pain a** I never got my muggy to run and I feel like selling it and buying a 1/18 electric.

I have both but run my nitro a whole lot more. I do enjoy my Mini-Z F1’s on my RCP track when the weather is bad outside. But if the weather is good you will find me at the local off road track every weekend.

Both, I run electric around home. I run my nitro and electrics in the gravel pits and any where the noise hopefully wont bother anyone.
I prefer the nitro.
