    Below is a photo of John Veal's nitro bike, current BRCA nitro champion. John uses a four stroke engine in his bike. As you can see there's a lot more going on here. Notice that there are 'manual' brakes both on the back and front, operated by servos - as opposed to the electric bikes above which use the speedo to brake on the rear wheel.

  3. Yeah but the nitro ones are gas powered and have real exhaust and brake systems with calipers and rotors :D

    Although I don't think they have disc brakes yet.

    I was on the Rc scene for a while....brushless power is definitely. Taking over.....nitro was too much of a hassle.
