which setup is best
i bought a tt fm-1e a couple of months ago and tbh cant beleive how good it is after running various nitro/petrol/electric cars..... i bought it used and it is fitted with a GM evo 4 7x4 motor, and a lrp F1 pro reverse digital.... and its fast to say the least . anyway now i am hooked.......
not long after i bought the tt i droppped on one of these at the right price....it came with brand new electrics fitted that i've taken out as they wern't up to much....
so my question is, which way do i go..... brushless or nitro. i really fancy converting it to nitro for the realism. would this be costly ? is there a conversion kit available ? or would a brushless sytem be better. i need the SF to be as quick as the tt with the 7 turn motor fitted.....
so any recomendations/advice would be much apreciated taking into consideration maintenance and running costs....

Several of us have low turn b/l motors and are happy with them. I have a 7 turn Feigao in one TT and an 8 turn Hacker in another and they are both very fast with excellent run times.
NF used to sell a conversion kit, but no more. So you'd have to do the conversion on your own. You can get lots of advice on how to do that on here, if you need it.
Nice find on the NF. It's one of the older models before everything went to plastic. If you stay electric, all you need is some aftermarket tires and you're off!

thanks for the reply. i now realise that the conversion is defunct.. and for what it would cost i may aswell wait and buy the nitro bike....
so it looks like brushless is the way to go in this bike.... what esc are you running with the hacker ? is it waterproof ? and where's the best place to get em ?
which tyres do i need the grp's ?
interesting point about the bike being an earlier model. i'm pretty new to rc bikes and didn't know they had changed the spec slightly. although i'm pretty sure i read the newer sf501 comes with a front disk brake.

YOu have one of the older NF's (me too). The newer NF's have a lot of plastic and cast pieces as opposed to all milled aluminum. The consensus is that the newer models have not changed for the better.
The newer NF nitro's do come with a front brake, but it's all plastic including the disk. Talk to Pat1967 on here if you want real world brakes.
