    Indeed. And, i say this all the time, but its up to you. You can only read all the advice, get what people say, and you'll be pissed. If you want my honest opinion, electric. You dont know enough about RC Cars by posting this thread to get a nitro. Sorry if thats harsh, but its the truth.

    Believe me, its not cool, they are slower then electric, and well, ya, they have a lot of shinny. But the world record for fastest RC Car is held by a TC3... electric. Also, starting engines, keeping them running, and paying for gas all the time SUCKS! Lol...

    Buy a new battery. Im running like 22/72 on my TC3 with a 19T and a 3300 batt, and i get a good 6-7 min out of mine. Gearing will help a little, but not enought to make a large diff.
