Re: Motorized vs. Electric
I concur that electrics can be more powerful; but their problem is that they are at their strongest from the first second you go & they grudually loose power as you go.
The Death Race would have ended much differenty had it been a much longer race.
I was heavily into R/C car racing for many years; The nitro car 'A' main races are a one hour long race; the electric 'A' mains were only five minutes long!
Until the battery technology gets better, the electric vehicles won't be able to compete with the gas vehicles for long distance.
