I have to disagree. I have seen stadium trucks jump and turn as well relative to there size as the buggies. They also appear to be more stable in turns due to there width. They are slower which is true as they are heavier.
For a beginner, I would recommend a stadium truck as the are usable in varying degrees, from bashing to racing. Also, if you have a track that runs 1/8 scales alot and is rutted pretty bad, the trucks handle this better than the buggies.
If you plan to race, see what class is the biggest at your track on a regular basis and start off in that one. If its a toss up, I believe buggies are more of a challenge and I would go that route.
Stock truck can be a snooze fest if the track is decent size. 19 turn in truck and buggy is very fast and fun.
