Default Gas or Nitro for Mod Project

i posted on a mod boat project im starting down in the boats area. the one reply i have so far brings up a good topic i believe... the basic question , if you have 2 32 cc engines, on gas, one nitro, what is the Major differances in HP and such? given the standard differance ie. gas is WAY cheaper than nitro, even at 2.50 a gallon, a bit easier to work with, start, cleanup ect... but in terms of raw unadulteraed WOW thats fast factor, which is King of the hill and which is well, a sissy?

this build is for SPEED!!! not going to run compitional races, just days at the lake tearing it up as fast as i can make it go, hopefully untill it completely disinagrates from sheer speed!!! LOL if your interested, you may follow my progress and comment along the way, it is listed in the speed boat section under the heading, has anyone tried this mod. your input is greatly appreiated

Are there nitro engines that big? 32 cc. That would be a 1.95 ci engine.

I know helis have 0.90 ci motors, but i haven't heard of bigger ones. Largest marine engine made by OS is 0.794 ci. I found a .90 ci nitro engine from another search. Thats still less than half of what you are looking for.

Now if you meant a .32 nitro vs a 32cc gasser, the gasser is much much bigger. A .32 ci nitro is only 5.3cc.

im not sure what the biggest size nitro engine is but i think nitro is faster but less reliable!!,a gass motor of about 22cc will give you the same output as say a 60 nitro which is only ten cc ,thats only a rough guess but im sure somebody with more knowledge on this will have a better idea!!.
