DO what he said. Nitro is a pain unless you like tuning a carb. Electric is so much easier.Salng your revo justifies this purchase.

I dont think so.We havent heard all the nitro guys chime in yet.

I kinda thought you would chime in about the comments about electric being easier.

nitro is great, raced 1/10th gas truck today and it was way more fun than my electric crap, not to mention i puffed both my good spc lipos today

all joking aside nitro is fun but i cant bring it up to my room to wrench on.

i say save for an e-revo, that way you have the knowledge base to help when wrenching on it

LOL hell no
I've done more work(and sank alot more money) on my electrics than my nitros so I dunno where there easier or cheaper(which is a common argument)

now if you buy a RTR and leave it stock thats one thing once you start tinkering there a bigger pain IMO

I've slapped half an inch bigger tires on my savage X and never bothered having to worry about its gearing just had to change its tune a teeny bit and it was good. Slapped tires on my pede under a quarter inch larger toasted the motor AND ESC in 10 minutes (checked at 5 mins and all was good found it weird)

nope nitros easier IMO when its warm out. Not trying to start a argument this is MY OPINION
Only own electrics for two reasons. One cause weather by me sucks, and varies ALOT. But now its summer, and seems the temps FINALLY stabilized so its gonna be mostly nitro
Second reason is my nephew doesn't have much fun with his pede vs my MT2, Savage X, or Jammin X1x seeing they literally drive circles around, or in the savages case drove over his pede when I take him out.
