If you can "half-ass" drive a buggy, you take a truggy and do very well with it. I have never race my truggy until I went to a money race in Arkansas 3 weeks ago, I took 3rd in expert class and won some cash(76.00)!!! Truggy is alot more forgiving than buggy. If you have the "heavy trigger finger syndrome", the truggy will forgive you to a point!! Truggy is alot of fun, I will be running truggy alot this year with my boost of confidence!!!

i feel that i'm a good buggy driver so i should kick a$$ this weekend. i remember about 10 years ago, me and a buddy would enter auto contests at helicopter fun flys. the two of us always won them. so to even out the playing field, they made us do "rolling autos" wile the engine was shut off, (no throttle hold here). for thoes who don't know what an auto is. it is a simulated flame out in flight, something every heli pilot must learn because a flame out will happin and you better know how to handle it. well we would start at about 200ft and shut the engine off, go into negitive pitch so as the heli falls the air goes up threw the blades and accually speeds them up. but you are falling a little slower than a rock. then when you get close to the ground you start to "flair" by pulling back on the stick and adding positive pitch (collective) and using the "energy" stored in the blades to slow the heli down and land it at a spacific point. well a rolling auto is the same wile doing a complete roll wile your engine is off. the trick is not to stall the blades and loose all hope of recovery. if the engine is off and you stall the blades, youre just watching it hit the ground. i guess none of this applys, but i spent 5 minutes typing so i'm leaving it in...

and this is relative why?.....and this is relative when?.....and this relative where?..............

When I first learned how to drive Nitro RC cars..about 3 months ago..The first thing I had to learn was to toss my buggy off the roof of a 5 story building and count how long it took to hit the ground and smash into 1000 pieces, and then I was told to get used to it, cause this hobby is nothing more than a really fun money Pit

see I can find you and give you shit anywhere
