Default Nitro or Electric

Hi, now I don't if this has been covered but I'm torn between nitro and electric so what's better for a beginer and price wise what will be cheaper in the long run? Any info would be great and will mean I can stop pulling my hair out with the options. Oh and the drifting looks like fun but no-where near me does it

That's the problem I'm in Northampton so there are clubs that run 1/8 nitro and another that runs 1/10 and 1/12 electric so thats why I cant decide, Im trying to work out the pro's and con's for both types

if you are a beginner then go electric with something like a 2wd buggy, you will have far less reliability issues and get more track time without frustration than you will with nitro, plus you will learn to maintain and repair the car before buying a nitro that needs constant attention. get something like the b4 rtr and you cant go too far wrong

Dodgy said it all, be ready for messing about with nitro, I've been there and sacked it

Electrics easier, more clubs do it as far as I can see.
But go to your locals and get a feel for it, then decide.
