The comma at the end of the quoted text goes inside the quotes; not outside. Grammar fail while calling something stupid.

If your English isn't so great in your marketing materials, how can we expect the engineering to be great?

I'm also not so sure about the whole "It's heavier so it handles better" theory. This is generally rather false, especially since the weight is added well above the chassis' CG. Just sayin'.

Well, if we're picking apart... "compared to it's nitro brother" isn't the best grammar either.

Granted, but all in all weight is less of an issue with an electric. Funny, my converted SNR is lighter than its (not it's) nitro brethren.

LOL I stopped at the bad quote punctuation. Good eye though! There's probably more... Too lazy to bother though.

I agree the weight is less of an issue since you have so much torque to just peel out of anything along with just about infinitely strong brakes. Still isn't the best thing for cornering speed though.
