I think that it is a total personal preference. I have owned both but I always preferred my Truggy. It wasn't quite as fast but it was always a lot easier to drive. When the track(s) would get beat up I found having to make bigger changes with the Buggy sometimes never making any changes to the Truggy.

even though the truggy class is getting pretty big i dont think it will get as big as the buggys. or atleast it wont take over. the buggy is a very competitive class and imo will just keep growing.

yes truggies are ALOT easier to drive then buggys which is why I like buggy class more as it takes skill to win not who has the fastest engine.....around here buggy is twice as big as the truggy class but more and more people are getting truggies.

the only reason I started to run truggy a couple months back is to get more time on the track....the more laps u turn (running 2 classes) the faster you "should" be and better idea of what the track is doing throughout the day...

I think I did it backwards and got a truggy first and then a buggy but if I was to do it over I would do it the other way around. To me it also seems that the truggy is much easier to drive. It just plows over ever rut and imperfection on the track where a buggy you have to drive them around the imperfections. I aslo think that a buggy makes you a all around better driver. IMO
