Nitro engines compared to gas engines, hmmm, it depends a bit on how big the nitro engine is, but in my opinion nitro can accelerate faster, and probably have higher topspeeds than cars equiped with a 23cc zenoah engine, all depending on the gears you use as well. If you dont want to drive competition, you will probably be paying less money for a complete set nitro car.
If you want to drive competition, the 1/5th cars 23cc will be cheaper in the long run.
Then to the beating, the 23cc can take a lot more, is less sensitive to set-up, drive your nitro for 2 minutes with wrong set up and throw it in the garbage.....
I myself like the big ones more, but that is personal, my best tip is, go to a local rc circuit or club and talk to people, watch the cars go , smell the exhaust fumes, and get inspired

what do these cars average price wise
for a prebuilt truck or buggy (or okay a car too)
all in all i want to know how much a gas vehicle would be without any of the electronics
