Josh and I broached the subject of nitro vs electric on a past podcast episode and while I have no intent on going to gas anytime soon, I have seen a few folks make the leap in recent months (John Bernard comes to mind first). Even though I run electric in my vehicles, I’m always intrigued by other options and possibilities. With that said, this recent two-part video series from RCOverload.com can offer some great insight into nitro powerplants (specifically in a Traxxas Revo).
In the videos, Matt (from RCOverload) does a nice job with the overview, tear-down, cleaning, and reassembly of his vehicles motor. A worthwhile viewing if you’re thinking about getting into the nitro side of the hobby.
