Nitro or Electric?

Running nitro or electric refers to the power source of the RC vehicle. While many RC drivers like to learn both, most have a preference. Nitro racers find they have more pick up on the track but have increased maintenance costs and a sharper learning curve. Plus, nitro fuel makes a lot of noise that outsiders may not like, but many RC drivers love the sound, smoke, and exhaust smell nitro trucks generate. For a beginner, running electric is often a better choice. RC electric monster truck kits are generally easier to assemble and maintain. They also provide a "clean" power making them quiet.
