I had my mind made up that I'm going nitro! Tired of charging batteries. Anyway, I thought I had my mind made up on buying a 1/10 traxxas slayer also. The cost is about $460.00. As I looked further into nitro some other brands started showing up. Exceed offers the 1/8 scale for $300 and redcat racing for less than that! The only differences that I could find is traxxas has the e-z start. Is that worth $200 more dollars? I'm just bashing. I'm not racing anyone other than my boys. I want the most for my dollar. Any brand advice?
