I have a question. Why go through all of that when 1/10th scale electric is very easy to do?

Be a trend setter! 3-4 guys change over to 1/10th scale, the rest follows! Especially if one of them is Kevin Lewis!

Electric is fun once you have all the quirks figured out. Because all you do, is mess around with the suspension and tire combo. If you need more torque, swap gears. Want to go faster swap gears, or add more voltage.

LOL, sorry dude, getting me to run electric again will be like getting you out to Mike's in the summer. I didn't have anywhere near as much fun that one time I ran electric out there as I had on my worst day running 1/8. Now if there was a track like Redstick or the old Performance I'd be all for some mod buggy action.

The AE 1/18 cars look pretty cool though, but if I get one it'll be for my son to bash around with and eventually maybe start him out in that.

Dang! Guess electric 10th scale is out for me then. I was hoping to bring back electric in Houston.

i think most people are scared to run 1/10 electric because you actually have to know how to drive!!!! i know im scared. i know if someone would let me use their 1/10 electric i would definitely use it. it teaches you how to be a better driver. if you can drive a 2wd 1/10 scale good you can drive almost anything better

I ran 2wd gas for awhile and it was ok. I ran a T4 and a B4 last summer and got bored real quick. 1/18 scale is just a lot more fun to me and a ton cheaper.
