    ........Electric vs. Nitro........

    so who wishes they made both an electric and nitro version of each rc car? like the T-Maxx and E-Maxx for example.

    I wonder how a nitro XO-1 would work? It would have to have twin 3.3's and a high gearing

    Not me... I have no love for nitro anymore. The only thing I wish is that they would build a great Gasser...

    If they could make a gas engine that was a little smaller and had a little more power that'd be great, because you could put it in a previously nitro model.

    I used to almost exclusively run my HPI Nitro MT, but have since made running it what is nearly a 'special occasion'. It sees little use but I always enjoy running the few times I do. Now I just run my E-Maxx or Micro RS4 since doing so is easy and cleanup is less involved. Traxxas has a great thing offering the same truck in both electric and nitro versions, but doing that successfully is rare. Most of the time a dedicated platform is the way to go.
