    well im not sure if its beter than the EMAXX but the only electric rtr monster truck that can compare to the EMAXX is the Stampede. But if u have the money for the EMAXX, get it!

    TRUST ME ELECTRIC IS CRAP GET A NITRO YOU CAN GET A CHEAP 1 ON EBAY FOR ABOUT £150 NEVER EVEN USED CAUSE HES STOCK CLEARING WWW.EBAY.CO.UK AND IN THE SEARCH PANNEL TYPE NITRO THEN CLICK ON 60MPH BUGGY
  6. Alisar, based on your never ending questions and apparent lack of RC knowledge, I'm surprised your advising someone to buy nitro. I would stick to electric if I were you Alisar. It seems as if you are alittle over your head with nitro. As for the E-maxx, it is a VERY capable truck, big, powerful and fast. I doubt that you would be disappointed with it. Hope this helps,...
  7. Maybe alisar should go back down to elec tric b/c he can't even keep his car started
  8. Ya, I'd have to agree with you Danny.

    -ersatz1025- I don't know if you've bought the e-maxx but to let you know that Kyosho has a new electric truck called the "Twin Force". If you would like to possibly get a look at it go to "www.towerhobbies.com" and the stock # is #sc1929. hope you have good luck with whatever you choose/chose.:)
  10. Ya electric is less maintnence, I stepped back down to electric, but I could keep my engine running

    they both have their ups and downs.electric you have to charge batteries, but with nitro, they suck to have to tune,and there is a whole lot more to go wrong with them.for a begginer, the e-maxx is a goo choice. they even make the novak brushless system for the e-maxx now that is supposed to be more powerful than the 2 stock motors.and still allows you to fun 2 battery packs on the one motor.electric is the way to go for getting started, or at least buy a used nitro, so if you break it you are not out much money.

    also the stampede doesn't come close to comparing to the e-maxx. the e-maxx is way better.its 4x4 has 2 motors, and has more speed and ground clearance

    electric is fine and the con of chargeing can be fixed with a quick charger and a few packs #@$% 15 - 20 mins aint long compared to 4 hours or more
