I can't see why a seperate class of 1/8 scale isn't viable on it's own.
I agree, if enough electrics come out to make the class. I wrote my comment based on the thinking that the class is pretty small since nobody, yet, makes a full up kit that you can purchase and throw a motor and esc into.

There was a comment in another thread that to make it more competitive the power to weight ratio of the electrics should match that of the nitros. That sounds like an excellent idea to me.

"In layman's terms, we call that the Hindenburg Effect."

1 HP is about 746 Watts... So if you really think of it.. power to weight ratio of nitro is more than that of brushless...
The Power of BRUSHLESS!!!!!
1HP (electric) = 746 Watts.
Everything is brushless!!
