which is better for me? an associated rc10t3 sport or a traxxas nitro sport? i already have experience in electric vehicle. and the nitro sport will be my first nitro. so i need to know which is better for me. im kind of leaning on the rc10t3 sport because i already have the parts, but i want the feel of a nitro truck.

go gas dude, they may be more mantinece, but its sooooo worth it, these things haul a$$. i have had a traxxas nitro sport for a couple of months and this thing flies. just tune the suspension, get a CVEC pipe and other stuff and your set. if you get the sport, take out the black thing thats in the carb, its a resticter, with it out you
'll go alot faster.

My choice is Nitro...I have had electrics for years, and just decided to get a Team GT this spring. I had no idea how much more fun they are. Nothing like a GasMan tuned .12 to make the lil fella inside jump up and down. And I honestly would rather tune the carb on this thing than play with ESC's anyday. Nitro rules!!

Catch me if you can!!

Go nitro but don't get a traxxas get a rs4 nitro 2 or a impulse if you feel you can tune the impule, have the cash and experiance to tune it.

dont get a traxxas theyr junk. stick to the t3 I own one just hop it up alot and you will be subrised at its performence. I like electric.

If your what to spend the money on a gas car why don't you get a Factory Team T3? The electric cars are better because you don't have to work on them much. If you do get a gas, get Losi truck. It is by far the best gas truck.

I say elec. I was going to get a Nitro rustler but once i heard all the stuff u gotta do to keep them running good really threw me off them. I spend just about every free minute i have with elec...i dont know what would happen with Nitro.

Go Nitro, man. I've never had an electric car (although I might get an electric this winter to race inside during the frozen months) but I've driven electrics and Nitro is so much cooler, more fun to drive, to work on, to hop up. Go nitro and you won't regret it.
