    I am talkin about the electric, a nitro rustler, an 03, can beat a bandit 1/2 throttle. But electric, once you got everything, your set, but gas is more fun, considering your always tuning your engine, tinkering with set-ups, and the downside you have to pay for gas, glowplugs, and tires tires, if you have THE DOE then go for gas, if you have little time and want an easy day on the track, go with electric.

    mpracing says get a 4000mAh battery?(laughing)the only batteries with that many mAh are lead acid.they weight a ton.3300 is the highest mAh battery that are `C` size NMH cells.2400 is the highest for Nicads.

    timrock, whats the max volts i can run in a stock RC10T3? i have a 7.2 nicad battery pac that came with the car but can i go up to 8.4? i was looking for longer run times better performance and going to go with NI-MH batts, will more volts burn things up?(i can smell the nitro flames now)regardless, nitro is in the future havent decided if i want a touring car or off roader

    essentialy,there is no limit to the amount of voltage you can put to or horse power you can get out of an electric powered car.there are many factors that come into play.the faster you want to go the more factors.tell me how fast you want to go with you electric powered T3 for starters.and ill take it from there.

    its factory installed.the label on the box says LPR elec.dig. speed control. so can i run a 8.4 batt and how long will a NI-MH last (3000 or 3300) should i disconnect the reverse?
