    Question E Revo Swap for a Revo 3.3

    I was thinking about trading an E Revo for a Revo 3.3. I'm tired of having all these electric problems and batteries just cost too much. I'd rather for a nitro to run all out instead of a electric losing power then running out. Should I do it?

    Yeah, I mainly want nitro because my E Revo is still brushed and it's way too slow for me paying $1000 for bodies, parts, and batteries! I'm starting to get tired of driving it. The batteries give me only like 15 minutes of runtime. It's rediculous! Plus Mamba Monster, Lipos, and a Lipo charger would cost another $500

    Well I'm a nitro guy, so you can guess what I would say, even though fuel is starting to go up, lol

    Bottom line - you sound frustrated with your E-Revo and aren't happy driving it so I say go for the swap. Are you more familiar with nitro?

    I know a lot about engines, I jsu like electric because they have instant power. If I get the Mamba Monster, there's a different story.

    Alright Jess I'll let you correct that one.

    TheChris-
    It sounds like you'd have no problem making the switch to nitro. I'd just make sure the swap is worth it. A clutch, gasket set, fuel line, glow plug, and one-way bearing = A nice battery, and that's assuming the engine is in great shape.

    Whenever I buy USED nitro it's only as a roller because I don't want someone else's rcnightmare of an engine.

    Whenever I buy USED electric it's without batteries for the same reason.
