Is there such a thing?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was wondering if there such a thing as a nitro crawler? I have seen a bunch of electric crawlers but electronics and I really get along stupid batteries dying when the fun just starts. I have done on-road racing, off-road racing I just want a fun back yard "basher" something that can go anywhere and do anything, and I think a crawler would be really cool.

If you truly want a perfprmance crawler, electric is the only way to go. you cannot gear a nitro engine down enough to get the low gearing an electric set up can, and then you have to worry about fuel starvation situations when your car is in off camber terrain. If your worried about run times, crawlers I find are one of the best forms of electric RC because with the right set up, you can have runtimes in the 30 minutes to an hour range on simple NICD batteries. just remember to choose low gearing, try to keep your rig light, and look for a stock to lathe motor style motor which draw hardly any power. hope that helps.

yeah nitro just cant cut it as a crawler, for straight up slow crawler performance you must go electric. and run times are dependant on batteries used, higher mah levels mean longer run times, so something above a 3000 mah battery will provide a good bit o fun.
