Truggy, they have a longer wheelbase. The longer the wheelbase the stable the car will be. Think of a rallycar: a Nissan Micra is less stable than a Mitsubishi Evo X.

A buggy is more stable at high speeds,Any advantage a truggy has by haveing a "wider stance" is nulafied buy its ride hight.A truggy has alot more ground clearence than a buggy.A buggy has a much lower center of gravity.Giveing it a big avantage in the high speed handling department.Think of it this way.Would you compare a truggy to a truck when it comes to high speed handleing?The only way a truggy would ever handle like a buggy is if you slam it to the ground and put some buggy street tires on it.

+1

People are giving opions based on the track. There a truggy IS more stable. If you slapped em both on an onroad high speed track it wouldn't stand a chance.

the cg on both vehicles are gonna be similar, the truggy is wider and longer but sits higher, the buggy is lower but is narrower and shorter, the buggy will flip before the truggy on pretty much any surface

The buggies are more stable at speed than a truggy IMHO. I define at speed as full throttle on the longest straight at a track. MY 8t 2.0 feels kind of like a cadillac eldorado doing 90 on the highway. However, the truggy is more stable in general on the track. Truggies don't get upset nearly as easy as a buggy. Truggies are way more forgiving going over ruts, bumps, other cars, pipes, and marshalls

To clarify on the question yes, this is not necessarily on the track, but just high speed driving.

From what gathered, I guess it again depends on where the driving takes place - rougher terrain and the truggy will be better, whereas a smooth flat surface and the buggy will dominate. Does that sound about right?

p.s. Not talking about just straights either, not drag racing.. high speed driving, as in turns and stuff
