Default revo vs truggy

hey all; This may have been asked before,but how does a revo differ from a truggy? Is it just that the revo is smaller or is there other things as well? Thanks

Well, the revo has a two speed trans. truggy's one speed with a center diff..The truggy's are basically laid out the same as a buggy ,just longer and wider with a very low center of gravity in comparison to the revo.I used to have and race a revo against the first generation truggys some years ago .The revo set up with a center diff. which traxxas offers as an option is a good racer, but know matter what the truggy still is easy to drive ,and is more durable .And now the new truggys that are coming out are just insane fast

whats your opinion on the Mugen MBX-5 Prospec? (the truggy)

is it one of those "new insanely fast truggies"?

or is it an older truggy already?


also all truggies are 1 gear? isnt that slower than a 2 speed because its 2 gear ratios for better speed, where as a truggy gear needs to be taller so it looses accel.

The mugen MBX 5T prospec is one of the best ,among others .I personally have a kyosho ST-RR which I am in love with.

What I meant buy fast was on the track only under timed laps ,not in the street or a dirt field.

Yes most truggy's are one gear ,however they run high end 21's and 28 motors that will carry it from 0 to 45 very fast ,two speeds are cool though. I miss mine when I hear someone shifting into second down the stright

Right now honestly its between the Mugen MBx5T Prospect and the Lsi 8ight Truggy Pro kit roller.

I am leaning more towards Mugen though.

If possible see if you can get some peeps from your local track that know and trust your skills to test drive both and ask questions about both truggy's .Both of the truggys are great, but drive very different. And also you want to be able to get parts fast if you need them so check your LHS to see if they will carry the parts for the truck you want to get. Just my opinion , your leaning in the right direction
