Talking What would be better for bashing? 8ight 2.0 or 8ight-T 2.0

I am going to order a 1/8th nitro this week, but I need to decide between the Truggy or the Buggy.

Which would make a better basher and why?


Also, I noticed that most of the tires for 1/8th are mainly track tires. Are there any tires for the B or T that have a bit more tread and would be better for non-track?


Thanks,
Coby

Aren't that much slower? Around here they are significantly faster than buggy. I've heard the same about a lot of areas.


Definitely truggy for bashing.

the buggies and truggies aren't really made for bashing. they are made for racing. id say get a monster truck or something along the lines of that for bashing IMO.

I hate monstor trucks and I want something 1/8th, powerful, durable and potentially raceable.

Neither.

HPI Savage.

If you want to bash or race...pick one or the other.

Truggy will win hands down for general use; larger tires and more ground clearance always wins.

Once you start racing, you won't even consider bashing. Bashing is fun for about 30 seconds.
