What do you like most on-road / off-road and 1/8 - 1/10 - 1/12 - 1/18 scale electric or nitro?

I personally like 1/12 scale on-road and 1/10 touring car - electric of course. Gotta be on your toes, thinking ahead and very in tune with your car and electronics.

The only thing I have not raced is nitro 1/10 and 1/8 scale but might try it sometime - especially on-road!

Post what you like and why.

1st: 1/10 Electric Touring. Why-Close racing, realistic cars, most difficult to tune.

2nd: 1/10 Mod Electric Truck. Why-Extremely fast, very nimble , and very durable

3rd: 1/10 Nitro Truck. Why-Too much power, durable, and very dirty.

I want to try 1/8th on-road, but no one races in the South. :cry:

My son and I run 1/8 scale nitro off road buggies all summer we love running on the ragged edge to get all the speed we can squeeze out of the dirt, all winter we run 1/10 scale touring sedans on carpet and when we just want to go out and bash around summer or winter and have some fun my daughter joins in and we get out the trio of t-maxx's and go out and run till its dark or we run out of fuel or spare parts which ever comes first :cool: :thumbsup:

1/18 pan cars. They're cheap, they don't break often, and the guys racing them are (mostly) not too serious about it. Even those who are serious (mostly) accept even a driver as inept as I am.

1/10 & 1/12 carpet oval, because you have to have everything perfect & drive the right line to be fast all the time. I like to think of myself as a perfectionest & oval racing keeps me on my toes.

1/8th Gas Buggy - there's just something about the sound and smell of a nitro motor, plus all that power
That smell does get me going sometimes. I was out watching some people practice on our off-road track the other day & there is just something about that smell that sets me off. It's probably from my days of racing big cars, I loved to fire the race car up just to smell it burn that high octane racing fuel.

Nothing compares to standing on the starting line and smeeling funny car nitro running - smells good but burns the eyes a little
