ive only ever seen one video of nitro crawling,( and it was bashed on, bad ) the problem with nitro crawling is .. nitros Are meant to go fast, you will burn the clutch out trying to go slow. so nitros are pretty much track or bash, crawlers should be electric

Nitro isn't as good for crawling because it has less throttle responce, and the clutches don't kick in until you get to a certain RPM. Electric, you can just pull the throttle and go instant and have full power.

with the electric tech heading the way it is the nitros will soon be obsolete
(but only if you have the money to do what this guy did!)
looks like about $2000+ in this truck
