Truggys are more than just bigger tires on a buggy. Generally they are wider, longer, and heavier than buggies. Also they are 4wd, so if you take an xxx-4, widen the front and rear end. Make the chassis a little longer for a longer wheelbase. Re-gear to compensate for the bigger tires, and you would have a truggy. You would also need a different suspension setup. The parts have to be stronger because of the additional weight. I read somewhere it takes hundreds of thousands of dollars to engineer a truggy 1/8 scale truggy, not sure what the cost would be on a 1/10.
