    It seems nitro is dying... It's not very popular just because it's nitro powered... From what I've gathered, the few people that have one love it.

    It's a shame nitro is not that popular anymore. Don't understand why ppl want to wait for batteries to charge instead of filling up and going

    Because those that don't enjoy nitro say it is a pain to tune, it's messy, the cost of nitro is high, you still have batteries to charge, blah blah blah.

    I was looking at getting a slash. I have a revo and rs4,and the slash or jato might fill the gap in between. But there aren't many nitro races, most people are going to electric.. Its a cycle. 5 years ago it was all nitro, 5 years before that it was electric. Nitro will be back again at some point. The problem is that electric has gotten better. So they closed the gap in closettle response and speed, along with run times. There are die hards on both sides.I'm going to get an electric mini for in my house to play with the cats and dog, but outside.. I'm all nitro. Me and my friend take out the rs4s in the parking lot at 2am after the bar lol.. Its just fun. Esp with roto and ez start. If you like it, go for it. Unless you want to race. Then of course check out the tracks that are local, see what they're running and decide from there.

    Brushless and nitro is the way to go, I've owned 4 brushless and 1 nitro with the nitro being my latest, with the upgraded chargers and lipos today I can charge my battery in less then 10min. if I wanted and with brushless it's not just plug n' play, depending on how serious you are you tune your esc, gearing, oils, diffs., etc. you still have to wrench on an electric and work on it often just like a nitro, for me tuning a nitro isn't that hard I did some research and figured it out in 1 day, it's not any more of a pain using nitro vs brushless, personally I like both and will run both from now on, btw nitro isn't dead it's just like every other similar hobby or whatever, some people like this, like that and like both, if it was that dead companies wouldn't waste time building these new nitros if there was a minimal market for it

    I love my nitros. I don't care how fast electrics get, they're boring to me!
