I'd go for electric if I went for RC. Gas is way too messy and noisy, and electric is just as fast, though not for as long a time.

I've got both and while that's true, but gas is more fun because you spend more time tinkering inside the guts of the thing and refueling is quick.

That's why I don't like electric lol

Electric is good if you have bitchy neighbors or plan to run it indoors. Otherwise, the runtime is too big of an issue. And battery prices go up exponentially if you want more juice.

I still think the Mercedes-Benz 5 liter M119 V8 or M120 V12 would be the bestest. Followed by GM LS3 and BMW S65. Followed by Ford Ecoboost V6, Nissan VQ 3.5 or 3.7 V6, Chrysler Pentastar V6 3.6L.
